At gamescom, Ubisoft announced the first major update for racing game, The Crew 2. Called “Gator Rush,” the content drop will be available this coming September 26 for all platforms (PS4, Xbox One, and PC).
Introduced in the heart of the southern swamps, the all-new hovercraft discipline in the off-road family will have players doing things no other vehicles can do in The Crew 2. With three hovercraft vehicles completely new to the line-up, racers can slide on all kinds of terrain, bump their opponents on a tight corner and land on their competitors after jumping a ramp. In addition to the Bayou, other iconic places across the US map have been redesigned with enhancements such as steep slopes and banked curves. Players can enjoy these enhancements in all-new events, a Live Xtrem Series race and free drive, with new skills available in the open world bringing new locations to explore.
The Crew 2 Gator Rush content will also include a new “Ace” mode which is a new difficulty level for top-tier players to earn Legendary loot, “parts that award better performances, exclusive affix bonuses and new combinations to customize each ride’s performance according to their handling preference.”
Also on the same date (September 26), The Crew 2 Season Pass owners will get seven days early access to two new additional vehicles as part of the game’s monthly vehicle drop.
