The Crew 2 releases for everyone today and since it is a follow up to The Crew that saw multiple editions, loads of post launch content, and more, many people have been wondering about various things with the game. If you’ve not played The Crew and want to know why this might be worth checking out or just want to know what’s gonna be available now and down the line for the game, this is the post for you. Here’s everything you need to know about The Crew 2 with your questions answered by Gary and Mikhail.

What platforms is it releasing on?

The Crew 2 is releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. It is available physically and digitally on both consoles with PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support. The PC release is available via uPlay and Steam.

What editions are available?

As with any big Ubisoft game, there are multiple editions. The standard edition is obviously there, but there is also a Deluxe Edition that includes the following:

Ford F-150 Raptor Race Truck 2017
Abarth 500 2008 Monster Truck Edition
Pilatus PC-21
3 outfits to customize your avatar

The Gold Edition contains the deluxe content, plus the Season Pass that includes 3 exclusive vehicles; early access to 22 new vehicles; 1 exclusive house & 2 outfits; VIP 20% discount in store and “much more.”

What’s been added over the first game?

Despite being set in the same US map as before, a few new areas have been added to account for the addition of boats and planes in The Crew 2. Alongside these new vehicle types, you can switch between your favourite vehicle of each type on-the-fly; even if you’re mid flight, you can swap to a boat or car and drop down to the road or water.

Do you need to have played The Crew before?

No. This has nothing to do with the original game. It doesn’t follow on from the same story or require any prior knowledge whatsoever.

How big is the download size?

The Crew 2 is 25GB on PC while the console versions are 30GB and 24GB for PS4 and Xbox One respectively.

Is Playstation Plus/Xbox Live required?

You can play all the main events and explore the map to your heart’s content, all without a subscription. But to see and interact with other players even in free roam, you’ll need to be a paying member of Xbox Live or Playstation Plus.

What can I expect for the PC version?

The PC version has the following enhancements over the console version:

4K (UHD) and Ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio support
