Ubisoft has announced plans to discount The Crew Motorfest and offer a second free trial period less than a month after the game’s release.
The third entry in the open-world racing series arrived on September 14 alongside a free trial which ran until September 17.
During this period, players were able to sample the first five hours of the game for free, before deciding whether to purchase it.
The new trial, which is running from October 10-20, will again let players try five hours of the game and carry over their progress should they choose to buy it.
The Crew Motorfest discounts and their availability will vary depending on the platform as follows:
- Ubisoft Store (PC) – Special discount from 10th to 24th October (-20% on Standard Edition, -15% on Gold and Ultimate editions).
- PS4 and PS5 – Special discount from 11th to 18th October (-20% on Standard Edition, -15% on Gold and Ultimate editions).
- Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One – Deal of the week from 13th to 16th October on Xbox One (-20% on Standard Edition).
- Epic Games Store (PC) – Special discount from 14th to 21st October (-20% on Standard Edition).
The Crew Motorfest’s Gold Edition includes the game and the Year 1 Pass, which will gradually unlock up to 25 new cars over the course of the title’s first year.
The Ultimate Edition includes the Year 1 Pass and the Ultimate Pack, which “contains many exclusive customisation items for the player’s avatar and vehicles”, according to Ubisoft.
The first entry in the series, The Crew, was released in 2014 and was followed by The Crew 2 in 2018.
Ubisoft claimed in June 2021 that the series had attracted over 30 million players since launch.
