BURN RUBBER IN THE CREW® 2’S AMERICAN OPEN WORLD WITH EXCLUSIVE* HARLEY-DAVIDSON® MOTORCYCLES
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — August 18, 2017 — Ubisoft® and Harley-Davidson® have announced that players will be able to cruise the open highways of America in The Crew® 2 with several exclusive* Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. The collaboration joins Harley-Davidson’s legacy of speed and supremacy in American motorsports with the motor spirit culture celebrated in The Crew 2, the newest iteration in the revolutionary open-world driving franchise The Crew.
First to appear in the game is a Harley-Davidson® Iron 883™ motorcycle, with bare-knuckle minimalism and garage-built style. The Iron 883 is a nimble urban machine that kicks asphalt. Additional models will be integrated over time for The Crew 2 players to pick up their favourite Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and shine in a near limitless world built for motorsports. Celebrated as a historic American brand, Harley-Davidson® motorcycles echo The Crew 2’s vision to bring players the ultimate US motorsports spirit experience.
“We are thrilled to partner with Harley-Davidson® in The Crew 2. Harley-Davidson® is a legendary, global brand, deeply rooted in American culture,” said Ahmed Boukhelifa, Ivory Tower Studio Managing Director. “The partnership was a natural fit as Harley-Davidson® represents the same thirst for unrestrained exploration and the American passion for all things motorized that has inspired our vision for The Crew 2.”
“Harley-Davidson® has a storied past of celebrating the American spirit, freedom and love of the open road. For almost 115 years, our customers have explored American cities and roadways with our motorcycles. With the launch of The Crew 2 we hope to inspire more people, young and older, to engage in the sport of motorcycling” said Heather Malenshek, Vice President Global Marketing & Brand for Harley-Davidson® Motor Company.
More than two years after the launch of The Crew, Ivory Tower, a Ubisoft studio based in Lyon (France)**, returns with a sequel that lets players experience the thrill of the American motorsports spirit inside a fully redesigned USA. The Crew® 2 takes the game experience beyond driving. Fans test their skills, solo or with friends, in non-stop competition and exploration, featuring a variety of cars, bikes, boats, and planes, to become the greatest champion of all motorsports.
The Crew 2 will be released worldwide early 2018 for PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment system, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Xbox One X and Windows PC. Players can sign up right now for The Crew 2 Beta, and a chance to play early here: http://thecrewgame.com/beta
