Burt Reynolds passed recently. Perhaps a decent way to pay a little video game tribute to the man is to channel you own inner Gator with some hovercraft racing of your own. The Crew 2 Gator Rush lets you do just that. Continuing on it's form of expanding the vehicle options from the original game, The Crew 2 is introducing the slip n' slide-y madness of hovercraft racing.
The hovercraft originally released last weekend for season pass owners but as of yesterday they are made available to all players. In addition to the new rides, the Crew 2 is also debuting a new difficulty level, Ace Mode that will reward those skilled enough to tackle it with even better loot. This is just the first step in the announced post-launch plans, to be followed in December with PvP lobbies to build off the existing co-op play.

With three hovercraft vehicles completely new to the line-up, racers can slide on all kinds of terrain, bump their opponents on a tight corner and land on their competitors after jumping a ramp. In addition to the Bayou, other iconic places across the US map, such as Lake Michigan and Glacier Park, have been redesigned with enhancements such as steep slopes and banked curves. Players can enjoy these enhancements in all-new events, a Live Xtrem Series race and free drive, with new skills available in the open world bringing new ways to explore the United States map.
For players who thrive under pressure, The Crew 2 Gator Rush will also include Ace mode, a new difficulty level. Players successful in Ace mode will earn Legendary loot, parts that award better performances, exclusive affix bonuses and new combinations to customize each ride’s performance according to their handling preference.
The release of Gator Rush is the first step in the The Crew 2 post-launch development schedule, and the team is committed to continue introducing ample new content through regular updates in the months ahead, including PvP coming in December, new disciplines, events, vehicles and more.
