The Crew 2 is going to be set in an open-world environment that allows gamers to take on races within the sky, off-road and on the streets. Let’s hope that it’s going to be wild. Based on what Ubisoft has shown off so far, the game looks excellent.

As of now, the title is under development and features a very unqiue take on multiplayer gameplay as the game require you to have a friend alongside you to progress through the game.

“You won’t get tired of this game” Let me tell you this, after you finished playing ‘A Way Out’, I will tell you, you will play a co-op game like never before! I know! I mean, I could guarantee that. I know I sound very cocky, but I can’t help it. Its true! – Josef Fares, Writer & Director of ‘A Way Out’

He then added:

“I’m telling you, it gonna like, kick ass!

Now, while that is one bold claim, let’s keep No Man’s Sky as one of the best examples of recent times.

I personally do believe that the game would be excellent due to the fact how the game mechanics are. Rather than being just any online multiplauer game, the game forces you to sit back with your buddies and enjoy the game together. It simply reminds me of the NFS II days when split-screen was a thing.

The game is set to release within the first half of 2018 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
