According to an email posted over at ResetEra.com, PC closed alpha testers are receiving invitations to take part in a closed alpha event that is slated to begin on March 14th and ends on March 19th. Information provided in the email reminds players that they will be under NDA. Players will be able to check out a number of features including vehicle and housing customization, aerobatics, the powerboats, rally raids and street racing. Players will only be able to download the client through Ubisoft's U-Play platform.
The Crew 2’s massive and living open world offers a diverse range of locations built for non-stop multiplayer competition and no-limit exploration on the ground, sea and sky. Soar through the clouds above the snowcapped Rocky Mountains, burn rubber in the backstreets of New York City, race down the Mississippi River, or explore every inch of the Grand Canyon. Behind the wheel of a sleek hypercar, riding some of the most iconic American bikes, or taking control of the swiftest aerobatics plane or powerboats, the opportunities for adrenaline-charged challenges are limitless. The Crew 2 US playground has been completely redesigned for competitive gameplay on the land, water or in the air, with new areas enhanced by lush and life-like vegetation, 3D volumetric clouds and fog, and realistic water behavior.
Across the country, players will meet four different motorsports families: street racers, pro racers, off-road experts and freestylers, each with their own culture and set of disciplines. Each family has a unique HQ, where players can meet, buy, collect and customize vehicles. Through competitions and chance encounters, players will find and hone their personal style, collect and customize dream rides, show them off and make their mark on the US motorsports scene.
At this time, registrations for closed testing are still being accepted, so head to The Crew 2 site to do so. (click image below for a larger view)
