Today, Ubisoft announced that The Crew 2 The Chase, the first episode of the latest update brought to Ubisoft’s open world motorsports game, is now available on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X and Windows PC.
The Crew 2’s third year of live support introduces a new seasonal system, centered around a new company in-game, Motorflix, a TV show company known for creating the very best in motor-fueled action flicks. Players will be recruited to play the starring role in different TV series with seasonal, themed episodes.
Every Season lasts 4 months and is comprised of 2 successive Episodes running for 2 months. During the very first episode, The Chase, players will play as an elite Interception Unit driver of Vault Corp, a private bank. His brief is clear: the outlaws must be stopped before they escape the city.
Motorflix arrival also brings new ways to unlock content through a brand-new feature: the Motorpass. The Motorpass is a new, optional multi-tiered reward system, that players can progress through by completing Daily and Seasonal Challenges. Every Episode comes with its own Motorpass, made of 50 tiers offering both Free and Premium Rewards, including exclusive vehicles. To unlock Premium Rewards, players need to purchase the Premium Motorpass for 80,000 Crew Credits.
Across its two episodes, The Crew 2 Season 1 will continue vehicle drops, such as the Chevrolet C8 Stingray 2020 or the Lamborghini Veneno Interception Unit 2013. In total, 28 new vehicles are available for all players to earn or purchase this season. In addition, every episode brings new themed events, that set the scene and music for clashes with new opponents. In Episode 1: The Chase, four new Special-themed Events will be available for all players to unlock exclusive rewards as well as a new game mode in which players must take down enemy vehicles, in solo or co-op mode.
To expand its amazing vehicle line-up, Motornation is also welcoming a special new brand, named “Creators”, with the goal to add a new vehicle each Season, all created by amazing freelance 3D artists & designers. The first artist to create an exclusive vehicle for The Crew 2 is Khyzyl Saleem, a talented British 3D artist who created the The Chase’s outlaw boss vehicle: the K.S. Masked Leader 2020.
