Ready… Steady… Well not just yet. Starting on November 6th and ending on November 10th, Ubisoft has announced that The Crew will be getting a closed beta that will be landing on the PlayStation 4 and XBox One consoles exclusively. The closed beta will be set up for the North American region. If you are interested in getting in on this, visit: www.thecrewgame.com/beta.
So what does the beta include for those that manage to get in? Players that participate will get to explore the entire United States, take on challenges in two of the games five regions available: The Midwest and East Coast. This will also offer players a chance to experience the rather large world that Ubisoft’s teams have created for players to experience. This includes living cities, detailed environments that you can explore with friends or alone. The nice part? 100% seamless that is there all at once. Something that has been a striving goal for The Crew’s development team from the beginning.
Players will also be able to enter into lobbies for some competitive racing with the in-game PvP lobbies that will be present within the closed beta as well as the games final retail version. This will allow players to customize vehicles as well as fine-tune them in order to experience two of the games five car classes, which include Street and Dirt. Ready to see who’s better than the other? Good. Now go enroll in that beta and get your racing skills ready.
The closed beta will be accessible to all Xbox Live and PlayStation Network members, however some online features will require an Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus membership. For those not able to do the closed beta for this upcoming action-driving MMO, it will be available for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, XBox 360, and XBox One on December 2nd.
