Driving across the country in real life has its perks, but let’s be honest: there’s also a lot of down time. The Crew 2 is a racing game that cuts out the boring parts as you travel at unsafe speeds from coast to coast, using vehicles that go on the road, in the water, and through the air. There’s nothing else quite like it on the market, and it’s free to play December 13-17 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The only catch is that console owners will need either a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription to take part in the free-play weekend. If you have a gaming PC, you don’t need any subscription to play the game for free, and you can pre-load it now via Uplay. The free trial makes the full game available to players, including PvP mode as well as the new Demolition Derby mode.
If you decide to purchase the full game after trying it out, any progress you make will carry over. You’ll also be able to buy any digital version of The Crew 2 at a discount. To sweeten the pot even further, Ubisoft is throwing in a free in-game car for anyone who participates in the free weekend. The car you get depends on your platform of choice.
- Xbox One: BMW Z4 GT3 2011
- PlayStation 4: Maserati Gran Turismo S 2009 – Touring Car Edition
- PC: Ford GT 2005 – Touring Car Edition
