Ubisoft has revealed the cars of the October Vehicle Drop for The Crew 2 – and these two should certainly please many. The first is a British revival of the classic Griffith, fused with a strong TVR heritage. Indeed, it’s the 2017 TVR Griffith, which is making its gaming debut in The Crew 2. This iconic vehicle features a stunning, eye-catching design with the performance you’d expect from a supercar of its calibre.
Up next is one for those who enjoy sliding sideways. The 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R Drift Edition is undeniably a legendary car from the beloved Japanese automaker. This is a car that’s built for drifters, and it’s certain to shine in The Crew 2’s designated drift-spec events.
Below, you can take a closer look at both cars available today in The Crew 2 for Season Pass holders – accompanied by their official descriptions and screenshots from developer Ivory Tower.
British in every way, this revival of the classic Griffith comes from a strong TVR heritage. And it has more to offer than just its stunning looks; with a Supercar Class power to weight ratio, this beautiful sports car is ready to unleash the beast at any moment!
Some cars are simply mythic, and the 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR34) is surely one of them. If you’ve enjoyed your time with this Japanese muscle-car so far, guess what – it can now also be put to use conquering the Drift discipline. With this performer at your side, you’ll be sure to turn both heads and wheels!
As a reminder, these vehicles will be available first to Season Pass holders from Wednesday, October 31st. They’ll enjoy seven days of early access to these cars before they’re then made available for standalone purchase for all players a week later beginning on November 7th.
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.
Recently, Ivory Tower introduced the ‘Gator Rush’ expansion for The Crew 2 – a free post-launch update that introduced Hovercrafts into Ubisoft’s open-world racing game. This release came accompanied with fresh events tailored to these new air-cushioned vehicles, as well as new skills to complete around the game’s map.
Ubisoft also used the opportunity to introduce a new ‘Ace’ difficulty mode into the game, adding a new, more competitive way for players to experience the events and challenges of The Crew 2. Gator Rush came accompanied by the vehicles of the September Vehicle Drop, which included the 2015 Ariel Nomad Rally Raid and the 2018 Proto Hovercraft 3 XK Armored.
In the meantime, if you want to learn more about The Crew 2, be sure to check out our in-depth review for our detailed impressions of the game, as well as our final verdict. 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.
