Initially set to open on July 23, The Crew's closed beta will start on Monday and run through Friday, July 25. The beta will feature the game's entire version of the U.S. for exploration. For now, missions will only be available in the Midwest and East Coast map areas, although Ubisoft plans to add more challenges in different areas before the game goes live this fall.
Beta players will also have access to two PvP lobbies in the challenge areas, where they can race against other beta participants. As for the cars, players can tweak their vehicles with the Street Spec and Dirt Spec customization options for now. The beta will offer limited access to the game's remaining three Specs — Perf, Raid and Circuit.
"The Crew was built from the ground up as a breathing, living world, meaning that in this Closed Beta you will be able to play with your friends at any time - or challenge rivals from all around the world," Ubisoft's announcement states.
The Crew is slated to launch on Nov. 11 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
