Crew 2 gains momentum with Season 7, Episode 1: Into the Storm, a free update that adds a 60FPS performance boost to the Xbox Series S (among other quality of life improvements), new vehicles, and a five-stage, all-underground street race from St. Vegas. Created by the fictional in-game TV company Motorflix, the biggest show will see players race through the heart of America and cross the finish line in five stages designed to push their driving skills to the limit. Dangerous and unpredictable environments await, as players will have to dodge collapsing buildings, stay on course during sandstorms, and fight police roadblocks on their way to victory. If players can successfully complete all five stages of the race, they will unlock the Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR4 No Rules Edition (Street Race).
In the Storm also adds a new performance mode for Xbox Series S that will work Crew 2 at 60 fps at 1080p. Performance Mode also gets graphics rendering acceleration on the Xbox Series X with support for 60fps at 1440p.
Racers can also start with the new Motorpass today, which offers 50 tiers of rewards including cosmetic items, currency packs and new vehicles including the McLaren P1 Gold Line Edition (Hypercar), Pontiac Firebird T/A Golden Wings Edition (Street Race) and Mitsubishi FTO GP Version R Nebula Edition (Street Race). The S7E1 Motorpass offers a total of 17 tiers of free rewards, including the Porsche 918 Spyder Silver Edition (Hypercar). In addition to the new rewards, the new update changes how the Motorpass system works. First, the new pass now gives players the option to purchase it for 3,000,000 bucks, the in-game currency earned through play, as well as 80,000 Crew Credits.
Additionally, starting with this update, cars from earlier Motorpass will begin returning for purchase through the in-game store starting November 23rd with the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Interception Unit (Street Race). On December 21, players will be able to get the Creators KS Masked Leader (Street Race) and Bugatti Chiron Interception Unit (Hypercar), and on December 28, the Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray Interception Unit (Street Race). Brand new cars will also be available for purchase during this episode, including the 1977 Pontiac Firebird T/A (street racing) and Mitsubishi FTO GP Version R (street racing), as well as 43 new interior items such as avatar costumes, smokes, lights, animated roofs and more.
