Ubisoft has shared its second major announcement for The Crew 2 this month – and that’s the vehicles featured in the August Vehicle Drop for the open-world racing game from developer Ivory Tower.
As a reminder, Season Pass holders receive seven days of early access to monhtly vehicle drops, and the two brand-new vehicles are unlocked for free in their garage. This month’s drop includes both a stylish new car and a motorcycle with the 2016 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio and the 2017 MV Agusta Brutale Dragster RR, respectively. These will be available to Season Pass holders on August 29th before releasing to all players for standalone purchase on September 5th.
Below, we’ll take a closer look at both new vehicles for the month of August with their official screenshots and accompanying descriptions as shared by Ivory Tower.
Quadrifoglio is Italian for “four-leaf clover,” but your victory behind the wheel of this gorgeous vehicle will have nothing to do with luck. With a sparkling personality and classy design, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio 2016 will carry you off in a puff of smoking rubber as soon as you put the foot down, leaving your competitors far behind.
Forged to impress, the MV Agusta Brutale Dragster RR 2017 combines top-of-the-line performance with a design like no other. Both compact and aggressive with its distinctive cut tail and bar-end mirrors, this bike is the perfect partner for those who refuse to compromise.
Remember, both the 2016 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio and the 2017 MV Agusta Brutale Dragster RR can be experienced in The Crew 2 from Wednesday, August 29th at no cost to Season Pass holders before being made available to everyone for standalone purchase from September 5th. If you missed it, the monthly vehicle drop from July featured the 2014 Ferrari FXX-K and the 2016 KTM X-Bow R – two track toy legends.
Monthly vehicle drops are just one part of The Crew 2’s post-launch support plan. Developer Ivory Tower has spoken about “polish, densification and novelty” when describing its vision for post-launch updates and content for The Crew 2. The team will add new event skills and vehicles to existing motorsport disciplines and features, with new disciplines to also be added in the future. PvP Lobbies will also be made available in The Crew 2 by December 2018.
One of the new upcoming experiences fans can look forward to in The Crew 2 is the all-new ‘Gator Rush’ expansion, a free post-launch update for Ubisoft’s open-world racing game that will introduce Hovercrafts. The expansion made its debut at Gamescom this past week, and it was the first major announcement Ubisoft made for The Crew 2 this month.

In our review, we say “The Crew 2 delivers an open-world USA like no other with a vast line-up of vehicles and motorsport-focused disciplines, but it’s held back by weak progression, missed opportunities and lacklustre racing.”
The Crew 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For more on Ubisoft’s latest open-world racer, be sure to keep it locked on FullThrottle Media.
