Ubisoft announced that Blazing Shots, the fourth free major update for their open world motorsports game, The Crew 2, is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
With Blazing Shots, the competition intensifies with new and unique Live Summit events where players must reach the top of the leaderboard to win exclusive rewards based on their ranking. Players can participate in weekly PvE competitions where they can take on nine activities selected among the game’s range of playgrounds and disciplines. Additionally, once a month, challengers can also take part in the Premium Live Summit that will reward the best competitors with a unique, special edition vehicle.
The Crew 2 Blazing Shots will introduce the Elite Bundle 3 that features three exclusive vehicles for one month at a 20 percent savings: Ferrari 599XX EVO (touring car), Porsche Carrera GT (hypercar) and the Citroën GT (hypercar).
Additionally, new vehicles will be added throughout the coming months, including some of the most iconic cars ever created such as the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse (hypercar) and the Mazda RX-8 (street race). To trick out the rides, a brand-new vanity category, Underglows, is now available, and 78 new vanity items will be added throughout the month so players can create a vehicle fit for a motorsports champion.
