The Crew Closed Beta gameplay: Taking a gamble through the streets of Las Vegas

What high speed shenanigans happen in Vegas, stay in Vegas. Las Vegas is the next major city I drive through in Ubisoft's upcoming giant-sized open world racing game, The Crew. While the Closed Beta doesn't feature all of the missions, it does give full access to the entirety of the United States, letting players explore each of the six main cities of New York, Miami, Detroit, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

While not as large as the others, Las Vegas does have a really pretty vista, and you'll not doubt recognize some of the landmarks, even if many of them aren't named after their actual counterparts. Though not in the video, I also enjoyed the drive from LA to Las Vegas, which took me through a mountaneous forest area, called Giant Sequoias Forest. Known as the city of sin, we try to behave ourselves in the streets as much as we can, though a few cases of trading paint certainly did occur.

So what's all included in the Closed Beta of The Crew? Here are the details:


  • Midwest: All missions and skill challenges 
  • East Coast: All skill challenges 
  • West Coast, Mountain States, South: Open for free- roaming! 


  • The Street Spec: You’ll get this one in Detroit! 
  • The Dirt Spec: This spec will be available in New York! 

And of course, you'll be able to form crews and play with your friends during the Closed Beta as well.

The Crew Closed Beta is currently live until this Friday, July 25th.

*Note: There are a few framerate hiccups due to FRAPS slowing down my computer a bit.
