The Crew’s huge new expansion pack Wild Run launches on PS4, Xbox One and PC today, November 17.
But even if you aren’t planning on picking it up, you’ll still have access to two key upgrades that will transform your playtime with last year’s MMOCARPG. And if you are, there’s plenty more content to tempt you back into Ubisoft’s racer as well. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of today’s launch:
The expansion introduces four new vehicle types; dragsters with higher top speeds, drift cars with more precise control, monster trucks that are capable of performing backflips, and motorcycles. Dynamic weather is also being added, with rain and wet roads having an impact on the handling of a car.
New mode The Summit will pit players against each other in a competition testing a “wide range of skillsets and terrains,” that usually spans across three days. There will be two Summit Qualifiers per week. Following a month of competing, the best participants will be able to enter the Monthly Summit Finale, where the winner will be awarded an exclusive new vehicle.
If you pick up Wild Run and your friends don’t (or vice-versa), you’ll still be able to play with them on the same server. Non-Wild Run owners just won’t be able to take part in the new events or race in the new vehicles.
Ubisoft has also confirmed regular updates for The Crew Wild Run, promising new vehicles, new specs, Summit Rewards, new features, and more.
Wild Run will cost £24.99 as a digital upgrade. Alternatively, a physical release featuring the original game and the expansion is available at GAME for £39.99.
