The Crew

Beta Test for The Crew Expansion Starts October 15

On Monday, it was announced that the beta test for The Crew Wild Run will take place from October 15 to 19.

Ubisoft’s hit racing MMO The Crew will receive its first expansion on November 17, 2015, titled Wild Run. The closed beta for Windows PC will begin next week and players will receive an exclusive opportunity to participate in “The Summit.” The event will take place in iconic locations in the United States with thousands of drivers and mechanics attending from around the world. The Summit is expected to be one of the largest competitions in a driving game ever created.

Furthermore, the beta will allow players to compete in PvE and PvP missions in order to raise their rank, unlock new features, and customize their vehicles. Additionally, FreeDrive activities, speed and skill challenges, stunt competitions, and trials will also be playable.

“Players will be able to test their skills with dragsters, designed to reach incredible top speeds; drift cars that demonstrate impressive control; unstoppable monster trucks that can perform dangerous backflips and insane jumps; or a range of agile motorcycles from prestigious brands, geared to take on the fastest cars on and off-road.”

In addition to bringing new missions and game modes, The Crew Wild Run will feature graphical updates with new lighting effects and redesigned areas adapted for all types of vehicles. The graphical update will be available to all existing owners of The Crew. The expansion will be available for digital download starting on November 17 and bundled with the base game in stores on November 19.
