UBISOFT ANNOUNCES LAUNCH DATE FOR GATOR RUSH, FIRST FREE MAJOR UPDATE FOR THE CREW®
The Update Plans All-New Hovercraft Discipline, New Events and More
Köln, Germany — August 21, 2018 — Today, during gamescom, Ubisoft® announced that Gator Rush, the first free update brought to Ubisoft’s open world motorsports game, The Crew 2, will be available on September 26 on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X and Windows 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.
For players who thrive under pressure, The Crew 2 Gator Rush will also include Ace mode, a new difficulty level. Players successful in Ace mode will 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.
On September 26, season pass owners will also get seven days early access to two new additional vehicles as part of the game’s monthly vehicle drop.
The release of Gator Rush is the first step in the The Crew 2 post-launch development schedule, and the team is committed to continue introducing ample new content through regular updates in the months ahead, including PvP coming in December, new disciplines, events, vehicles and more.
