Drivers, it’s time to prepare for your ultimate MMO racing challenge that’s about to hit home consoles and PC’s near you. With their feet on the gas pedals, today, Ubisoft has outlined the upcoming content that will be releasing with The Crew’s upcoming season pass. Before the content is discussed, there’s a few things to look at first. The content will feature four themed Car Packs, new mission sets, new stickers, and even new tuning kits that will start peeling out onto the chosen platforms starting in January of 2015. The content will also include new PvP modes that will follow shortly after.

Want to know how much money you will save? The content packs will each release on their own for 6.99 USD each or you can purchase all of them for 24.99, which will save you roughly 3 USD when said and done. Let alone the savings, those who opt to get the games season pass will also get two exclusive cars at launch when the game hits shelves on December 2nd. Those with the season pass will also have access to each of the car packs a week ahead of those who opt to buy them separately. Additionally, those who purchase the games “The Crew Gold Edition” will also obtain the games season pass upon purchase. The “Gold Edition” will be a digital only release through the Uplay Shop for PC, as well as PlayStation STore and the XBox Live (XBox One only).
