Virtually Race the Mercedes X-Class in ‘The Crew 2’

Mercedes-Benz‘s first pickup truck will be showcased in Ubisoft’s upcoming “The Crew 2” video game.

Heading to the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on June 29, 2018, “The Crew 2” will host a closed beta from May 31 to June 4. During the closed beta, players will get an opportunity to play the X-Class mission, and Mercedes-Benz Vans is giving away 5,000 beta keys on its social media channels. The mission is called “Rally Raid,” with the X-Class taking lead in the off-road challenge. Once players complete the mission, they will be rewarded with the vehicle, which will also be available in free roaming mode, which allows the entire map of “The Crew 2” to be explored.

Since it is a video game, Ubisoft has added several modification options to the X-Class in “The Crew 2.” Players will be able to add larger tires, a winch on the front bumper, and a loading area cover, along with customizing wheels and colors. The X-Class isn’t the only vehicle from Mercedes heading to the game. Other models that will be available include the 1955 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé, AMG C63 Black Series, AMG GT, and the GLC Coupe.

“The Crew 2” is the sequel to “The Crew,” which has garnered 14-million players worldwide.
