We got our first proper glimpse of The Crew 2 at E3 earlier this year, with a new cinematic trailer and initial details on the up-coming sequel to the 2014 racing title.

Since then, fans have been eager to find out more, but Ubisoft hasn’t shared much information on the game. That’s changed though with the reveal of The Crew 2’s release date.

It’ll be released worldwide on the 16 March 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and – of course – brings vehicles for the water, roads and sky to the open-world USA map.

A new, super-dramatic gameplay trailer also hit the web for this year’s Gamesom, showing off the vast array of vehicle types and the impressive, expanded map.

The trailer also unveiled the game’s ‘Fast Fav’ feature, which will allow players to seamlessly switch between their favourite ground, water and air vehicles in just a few seconds.

They also revealed that as you find more boats, planes, bikes and cars to collect, there’ll be a range of challenges and competitions along the way that put them to good use.

We’ve also found out details of the pre-orders, with the standard game coming with The Legendary Motors Pack – featuring the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Touring Car 2016 and Harley-Davidson Iron 883 2017.

The pre-ordered Deluxe Edition is a bit more money and gets The Legendary Motors Pack, plus the Motorsports Deluxe Pack, which comes with:
