Ok so now I have a dilemma. When EA showed off Need for Speed Payback during its E3 2017 press conference, I was like yeah this will be the first Need for Speed that I will buy since NFS Most Wanted. It looks great and very flash.
Then Ubisoft rolls up with their E3 2017 press conference and says hey you, look at our shiny new racer, The Crew 2′
My reaction was like ‘oh my’ take my money. Then I suddenly remembered about Need for Speed Payback. Which do I choose?
I’m not going to write about Need for Speed payback in this post as I kind of covered in another post just the other day.
When the trailer began to play during the presentation, I knew instantly this was The Crew 2. I had that gut feeling.There are humungous changes to this one. The obvious change is the ability to take control of not only cars, but also boats, motorbikes and planes and not just one or two models, but a whole range.

This excited me even more. Ubisoft seems to have upped their game in every aspect with this future release, not only in the variety of vehicles but also the main storyline and graphic.
The story line looks like the team have stepped away from the gritty underworld approach of the first game and have gone for a more sports champion focused story. I think this will give the game a more structured feel as you rise through the ranks of your chosen motor sport.
Now all we need is to find out if the map is going to be as large as the map in The Crew or even larger.
The Crew 2 is due for release in early 2018. If you’re like me then you can sign up for the beta now.
