With all of the hullabaloo of E3, one game seems to have fallen by the wayside somewhat: The Crew 2. Sure, Ubisoft and Ivory Tower’s first effort was ambitious but ultimately bland and unremarkable, but this sequel seems willing to learn from its mistakes and try new things. Namely new vehicles.
The cinematic trailer, which appeared to filmed in the Doctor Strange/Inception universe, showcases The Crew 2: Electric Boogaloo’s new additions, as you’ll be racing across America in planes, boats and cars in an effort to become the greatest motor-sport champion in history. It’s great to see that Ivory Tower and Ubisoft have decided against the weak undercover police storyline from the first game in favour of just pure competition.
Of course, we’re a lucky lot, and we were also treated to 10 minutes worth of gameplay too, showcasing all three disciplines in action. The video shows New York City being conquered by land, sea and air, but the most interesting mechanic was the instant hotswitch between vehicles. The video showed a plane transforming into a boat without loading screens or any loss of momentum. Instantly, YouTubers around the world hit upon the idea of using this system to park a boat on the Empire State Building.
These new vehicle disciplines have shot The Crew 2 straight into our most anticipated lists, but we just hope they’re as fleshed out at the automobiles are. Anyone else looked forward to flying through the Grand Canyon with a group of friends? Let us know in the comments!
