The Crew 2 gets a free weekend

Easter has long been synonymous with a) Jesus Christ, b) hollow confectionery, and last, but certainly not least, c) not-very-well-received online racing games from Ubisoft. By now, I take it, you've got the first few things covered, and Ubisoft has your back with the latter. They've made The Crew 2 free from April 9 (yesterday) to April 13 (Monday), giving you a long weekend's worth of racing to do, without having to fork out for the privilege. Lovely stuff.

I wonder how the game has changed since Andy Kelly decided, in his review, that it was a road trip not worth taking. Nearly two years have passed since then, and The Crew 2 has since been embiggened with various updates, including the recent Inner Drive, which added new vehicles and vanity items, and reworked the avatars, among other things.

The Crew 2 is also on sale over on Ubisoft's store, at 75% off, so if you want to carry on after the weekend, you'll be able to do so pretty cheaply. But before then, you can sign up to the free weekend here. (Thanks, GameSpew.)
