Ubisoft just got in touch with the news that players will be able to sample the delights of The Crew 2 ahead of its late June launch via an upcoming closed beta test.
Starting on May 31 at 9am BST / 10am CEST, and running through until the same time on June 4, players across all three platforms (PC, PS4, and Xbox One) can "experience the first level of the progression system as they compete in races across the first four disciplines - Street Race, Rally Raid, Powerboat and Aerobatics - against the backdrop of a fully redesigned U.S.A via land, water and air."
If that sounds like your jam then you can sign up for a chance to participate by heading here. It's also noted that eager beavers can pre-load the closed beta client starting May 29.
And with the announcement came the new Welcome to Motornation trailer below. Once you've watched that check out our hot-off-the-press hands-on preview of Ubisoft's upcoming online racer.
