An open-world video game published by Ubisoft and developed by Ivory Tower for Microsoft Windows PCs and the Xbox One as well as Sony’s PlayStation 4, The Crew 2 is the sequel to 2014’s game of the same name sans the “2” and will consist of a persistent, free-roaming, open-world environment that will be representative of a scaled-down version of the United States of America.

The Game Review
As in the previous The Crew title, players will assume the role of a relatively unknown race-car driver at the start of their career. Using the entire United States countryside as your race track, The Crew 2 will not only feature cars, but other vehicles as well such as planes, motorcycles, and boats in a nod to the fan base’s demand for more vehicular options in The Crew. Gameplay in The Crew 2 changes depending on the type of vehicle the player is driving and each vehicle type has its own appropriate set of physics that goes along with it. Players can also switch between air, land, and sea racing instantly.
The game will also feature four main hub worlds, each with their own theme including off-road, street racing, pro racing, and freestyle. As in the previous title, The Crew, player customization options will be front and center in Ubisoft’s sequel and will probably consume much of the player’s time. Learning the ins and outs of the game’s mechanics is just one part of the puzzle with The Crew 2, the other part being how to customize your racer and craft for on-the-track success.
Since winning is the name of the game and advancement pretty much only occurs after you rack up some W’s in your lane, players will often find themselves strategizing on how best to approach certain events in order to maximize their efforts.
Controls for The Crew 2 will be akin to those employed in the first game – that is, easy to pick up and play but very difficult to master. This tends to separate the gamers who have logged hundreds of hours into the game from the neophytes without isolating the latter from the former.
Like the first game, The Crew 2 will feature a huge multiplayer element in that players can cooperate with other gamers from around the world to achieve objectives although those gamers that don’t necessarily enjoy only gameplay will have the option to play solo with cooperative artificial intelligence (AI)-powered bots to help them if they choose to take that option.
One unique thing that Ubisoft is doing to commemorate the launch of The Crew 2 is rewarding all the players of the previous game with special in-game rewards and perks. While it is not necessary to play The Crew to enjoy The Crew 2, if you have completed certain milestones in the previous title your efforts won’t go to waste. That’s rarely done in sequels, and it’s always nice to see the devs and publisher giving a shout-out to the fans that made the game popular in the first place.
