Ubisoft calls out gamers to beta test “The Crew” on PC
Ubisoft announced on their website that they are looking for users who want to participate in the second stage of the closed beta for “The Crew” on PC. The developer’s racing game will be released on the 11th of November for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
The beta stage takes place from the 25th to the 29th of August. In order to participate, users have to preorder the game before August 25th. After that, they will be put on a waiting list, from where the participants are chosen. Currently, the beta is only available for PC users, but, as the site announces, there will be a similar testing session for the consoles version starting late September. Gamers can already register for the first beta session by chosing what console they want to participate for and by preordering the game.
The beta will only be available in the English language. According to the official site, during the beta users will be able to explore the United States without any loading screens. Several challenges are available across the map, depending on the area. The Midwest will contain all the missions and skill challenges, the East Coast only the skill challenges and the rest of the country will be available only for free roaming. Beta testers will also have access to two PvP lobbies, in the Midwest and on the East Coast. Players will also be able to customize their vehicles in order to be able to drive across different environments. In the beta, two out of the five specs are available: the street spec and the dirt spec. The developer also ensures that during the beta players will be able to play with their friends at any time or to challenge rivals from around the world.
The minimum PC requirements for the game, as listed on the official site are:
