Except there was one issue, no one knew when the closed beta was set to start.
Anyone that plays in the beta will be able to record and stream footage of the game. The open-world and racing were praised on release, but the always online requirements were a source of frustration for players. As for what's playable, Ubisoft assures us that the entire game will be open to explore As will the first 4 disciplines of the game: Street Racing, Rally Raid, Powerboat and Aerobatics (plane).
If you want to try and get in on the closed beta for yourself, you can head over to the official The Crew 2 website to sign up right now.
Ubisoft has announced today that The Crew 2 beta will be launching at the end of this month.
