The Crew PC closed beta begins today, so here's a video walkthrough
The closed PC beta for The Crew begins today, and to help give potential testers a heads-up, Ubisoft has released a video walkthrough. In the video, the developer touches on a few key features of the game and what you can expect when entering the beta. For starters, The Crew is a driving game set in an open-world with MMORPG components (you'll see what that means when you watch the video). Other than that brief description of the game, Ubisoft explains everything that'll be unlocked in the beta:
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!
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:
- The Street Spec: You’ll get this one in Detroit!
- The Dirt Spec: This spec will be available in New York!
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.
