Months after the official September 11 release of The Crew Motorfest, Ubisoft is still bringing new updates to The Crew 2 and now the MAD update has hit the streets. Here’s everything added with The Crew 2 MAD update. 

Ubisoft hasn’t yet hit the brakes in terms of new content for The Crew 2, despite the release of The Crew Motorfest. Both of these racers are live service titles, promising to bring major updates every now and then. 

The Crew Motorfest did take a different approach than the previous two The Crew games, so if you want to revisit older entries in the series, you’ll still find something new to accompany you. 

So, here’s everything about The Crew 2 MAD update.

The Crew 2 MAD update start & end date

The Crew 2 MAD update is live, as it was released on November 15, and will run until February 28, 2024. The update is free and will be available for every The Crew 2 player.
