The Crew_E3_Closed Beta 590x332

On July 21st, the roads are yours!

07/17/2014 12:00 AM

Since we’ve announced THE CREW last year, we’ve received many messages from players around the world, eager to get their hands on the game! We’ve heard you loud and clear, and as we can’t wait for you to play, we announce you that our PC Closed Beta will be starting earlier than what we first announced. Get ready to play from Monday 21st of July to Friday 25th.

As you know, we’ve been focused on delivering a bold new take on the driving genre: a massive persistent world loaded with exciting driving challenges, iconic places, amazing cars - and best of all, a world filled with friends to crew up with or rivals to compete against.

Here are a few tips about everything you need to see. Enjoy the ride!

The Map

Explore the entire United States with no loading screen and complete a variety of exciting challenges:

  • Midwest: all missions and skill challenges.
  • East Coast: all skill challenges.
  • Rest of the country (The South, Mountain State, West Coast): free roaming at will!

For the purposes of this Closed Beta, we will have missions and skill challenges available only in the Midwest and challenges in the East Coast. The final game will, of course, have missions and skill challenges throughout the entire U.S. map!

You will also have access to two PvP lobbies, one in the Midwest and the other on the East Coast, where several races will be waiting for you to prove your skills against other players!

The Cars

Expect to discover new vehicles that, in order to drive across a variety of terrains, you’ll be able to customize in the following specs:

Remember that there are three other specs in the game—Perf, Raid and Circuit—and you’ll have a glimpse of those during this Closed Beta!

Playing with your friends

The Crew was built from the ground up as a breathing, living world, meaning that in this Closed Beta you will be able to play with your friends at any time – or challenge rivals from all around the world.

Finally, remember that this beta does not represent the final state of the game, and many changes will be applied before the final release on November 11!

Enjoy the beta, and NEVER DRIVE ALONE!
