Ubisoft has unveiled the new The Crew 2 vehicle, which is a powerboat called the Jaguar Vector V40R. It is one of the many different boats that we’ll also be able to drive in The Crew, which not only allows us cars but also planes, bikes, and boats as well.
The Crew is an open-world racing game series that allows players a shrunken view of the United States to drive around in. While originally players were limited to the ground, The Crew 2 gives them the opportunity to take different paths to destinations and races whether it’s by racing boats or flying airplanes in daredevil stunts.
The new The Crew 2 vehicle is only the first of the many different boats that will likely be revealed either in subsequent trailers or in the actual game itself, along with the different air and land vehicles that we’ll be driving as well.
Considering that the Jaguar that makes the Jaguar Vector V40R is the same Jaguar that makes their well-known luxury cars, it’s likely that this boat will be a dream to handle. The boat being in the game at all is the result of a partnership between Jaguar and Ubisoft, who are developing the game.
While the first The Crew game wasn’t seen as a very good game, getting a good bit of criticism for being always-online, a good amount of technical issues, a bad UI, and microtransactions, it was still a fairly successful game, enough to warrant a sequel. Hopefully The Crew 2 will be able to fix all of those issues when it releases and be the game that the original Crew couldn’t be.
If you want to see the new The Crew 2 vehicle for yourself, you can take a look at the trailer for that boat further up this article to see it in action. The Crew 2 will be releasing on June 29 of this year, on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
