Ubisoft has announced that The Crew: Wild Run will have a closed beta on PC from October 15th until October 19th. Those who get access to the beta will have access to all the PvE and PvP events, which in turn will allow players to level up and unlock items for their vehicles. Wild Run will add drifters, dragsters, monster trucks and motorbikes. FreeDrive events will also be active in the beta including ones that are geared for specific vehicles.
Ubisoft has also announced that it has acquired The Crew’s developer Ivory Tower, making it part of the family. A statement was issued by Ivory Tower’s Managing Director Ahmed Boukhelifa:
“We’ve always enjoyed a very positive relationship with Ubisoft. Working together on The Crew, and celebrating its success, made us both understand that we have huge potential in continuing to work together in the future. By joining Ubisoft, the team at Ivory Tower will continue to benefit from Ubisoft’s infrastructure, support, tools, technology and vision. In return, we will contribute our own expertise to the broader Ubisoft story.”
The Crew: Wild Run will be releasing on November 17th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
