This mode can also be played alone with AI (Artificial Intelligence).
The Crew 2 Development
The game developed by Ivory Tower and published by Ubisoft kicked off the development based on the feedback that the first game The Crew didn’t have enough freedom to explore and play the missions. Thus the developers in The Crew 2 have divided the game into various worlds with different driving styles.
In a press statement, issued by the Ivory Tower Studio stated that “Across the country, players will meet four different motorsports families: street racers, pro racers, off-road experts and freestylers, each with their own culture and a set of disciplines. Each family has a unique HQ, where players can meet, buy, collect and customize vehicles. Through competitions and chance encounters, players will find and hone their personal style, collect and customize dream rides, show them off and make their mark on the US motorsports scene.”
Unlock the Cars
You can have the opportunity to unlock the Crew 2’s 18 vehicles before the official launch of the game. You can do this by linking up the original game with the Crew Rewards Program.

The developers of the game have slated the launch date of the Crew 2 for early 2018 and will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
