The Crew 2 Kicking Off Closed Alpha On PC Tomorrow
It’s been several months since racing video game fans of The Crew 2 got their first look at Ubisoft’s forthcoming The Crew 2 thanks to the company’s unveiling of the title at E3 2017 with a rip-roaring cinematic trailer, which confirmed that planes, helicopters, and boats have been added to arsenal of vehicles in the motorsports sequel. While many are surely champing at the bit to get their hands on the title, some are actually going to be able to do just that very soon, as the publisher and developer’s closed alpha for the game starts tomorrow on PC.
This much has been revealed by a post from the ResetEra community member known as “spad3”, who also shared a “closed alpha guide” image from Ubisoft regarding the contents of the forthcoming closed test for The Crew 2, which will take place from March 14 through 19. According to the closed alpha guide, which is pictured below, players taking part in the trial will be able to try out a number of the game’s events through Uplay PC only, and it will include the full map, customization features, as well as a bevy of the title’s various land, sea, and air vehicles.
As indicated in the above closed alpha guide for The Crew 2, fans shouldn’t expect to see footage from the forthcoming test while it’s ongoing, as Ubisoft has stated that the trial version being offered to those giving it a go are under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that video of the title’s gameplay won’t make its way onto the web in some capacity, as there have often been many who decided to break a video game company’s NDAs in the past.
All things considered, with The Crew 2‘s closed alpha starting soon, it stands to reason that the racing title could eventually receive its own open beta so that many who weren’t selected for the closed trial period can get a handle on the mechanics before the game’s release. Nevertheless, until Ubisoft openly confirms that an open beta is on the way, fans will simply have to be content with the contents of the title’s gameplay trailers for the time being.
The Crew 2 is currently scheduled to release at some point in between April and September 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
