Previous Work With Red Bull
Ubisoft and Red Bull first collaborated in 2016 for the launch of Steep. An open-world action sports game featuring ski, snowboard and a wide range of extreme mountain sports.
Stéphane Jankowski, Producer at Ubisoft Ivory Tower stated:
On The Crew 2, we have been collaborating with more than 50 prestigious brands, making our world more realistic than ever before, . . .With Red Bull Media House, we were able to take the collaboration even further and go beyond video game play to real-life experiences. Face Your Ride is a perfect way for us to further connect our game with the reality of today’s motorsports scene.
There are a number of Red Bull events and vehicles in the game’s massive open-world. These include the Formula 1 RB13, a Red Bull buggy and Bryce Menzies pre-runner truck. Additional Red Bull content will come to game in the months ahead after release.
The Crew 2 will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 29th.
