Ubisoft is on a roll right now when it comes to offering free game experiences on PS5 and PS4 consoles.
And following on from earlier releases, it’s now the turn of The Crew 2 to be given a hefty update and a free trial.
The good news is that the in-depth driving simulator has just started a new season, with fresh content available to explore.
And that means that there is something for everyone to check out, even if you’ve played The Crew 2 in the past.
The only downside is that Ubisoft isn’t making The Crew 2 accessible forever, so it’s best to jump in today and check out everything that’s on offer.
It should also be noted that while The Crew 2 is available on several different platforms, including Google Stadia, PC and Xbox, it isn’t currently cross-play enabled, meaning you can’t jump in with friends playing elsewhere.
The free download is already live and will remain available on the PlayStation Store until Monday, November 22, and doesn’t require a PlayStation Plus subscription.
That’s plenty of time for everyone to get stuck in, with the official end time listed as 7pm GMT, although this will differ depending on where you live.
When it comes to new content available this weekend, Season 4 – The Contractor has just been added to the game across all platforms.
Not only is the entire map available to explore, including all events and the full catalogue of vehicles, but gamers can also take on fresh challenges within city limits and experience the new Contractor game mode.
The brand-new episode is available to everyone and brings new open-world activities, new ultra mooded events, freshly added vehicles, an all-new Motorpass as well as some fixes and improvements.
A message from Ubisoft adds: “Ready to enter the world of transportation services? There are some open positions around the city.
“Your driving skills are famous all over America and transport companies want to work with you. Drive around the city to start new missions and try to complete them in time to meet customers’ expectations.
A new PlayStation trial has been released on PS5
“Starting November 17th, jobs from 3 transport companies in the city will be available: Marco’s Cab, Diamond Limousine and The Rocket Company.
“Choose Marco’s Cab if you fancy giving your passengers the coolest rides. Thanks to their century of expertise, they are known to be the best in town.
“You’d rather have a more sophisticated approach? Diamond Limousine is what you need. Ferry your passengers in a luxurious setting between various well-known locations.
“If you’re more into transporting goods, The Rocket Company is waiting for you. Safely take the cargo all the way to the delivery point. Try to be as cautious as you can.”
The Crew 2 never attained the high review scores of other big open-world experiences but is certainly worth another look following its launch back in 2018, with new content added since.
If you like the game and want to keep playing after the Free Weekend period is over, you can acquire the game at a special discounted price of up to 80%, and all of your progress and vehicles will carry over if you decide to upgrade.

Artists Show Off Slick Concept for Xbox Series X Elite Console – GameRant

Published

on

The Xbox Series X will inevitably receive an updated model, and one creator shows off their design of what it may just look like.
The Xbox Series X is the current flagship console for Microsoft, and one of the most powerful consoles ever made. Like previous generations, the Xbox Series X is bound to receive a sleeker new model, perhaps even with upgraded specs, and one content creator has shared what they think it may look like.
When Microsoft revealed the Xbox Series X in 2019, its design was attention grabbing, and some might say for the wrong reasons. There is nothing outwardly strange or offensive about the design, but its size, shape, and color immediately saw comparisons between the Xbox Series X and refrigerators. Micosoft saw this as a great marketing opportunity, however, releasing an offical Xbox Series X mini-fridge that has quickly sold out practically everywhere. With the last generation of consoles, Microsoft released the Xbox One S and Xbox One X towards the end of the Xbox One's lifecycle.

A YouTuber by the name of Concept Creator has designed a mock-up of what the next Xbox Series X console variant may look like. Originally covered by Ilse Jurrien of LetsGoDigital, graphic designer Jermaine Smit of Concept Creator trims away the fat of the original Xbox Series X design, making it much more slender, sleeker, and recognizable, thanks to some key implementations. Size-wise, the Xbox Series X Elite, as Jurrien is calling it, evokes the jump from the Xbox One to the Xbox One X but to a much higher degree, with the Elite nearly shrinking the original Series X in half. The most eye-catching change of the Elite is the sharp, raised cross-piece that cuts across the top and front of the console, with LEDs that glow Xbox green on both sides.
Despite the additions, many of the key Xbox Series X design features are retained in the Elite's mock-up. On the left side of the console is the disc-tray, power button, and four USB ports that appear smoothly chiseled out of the console's body. Likewise, the signature venting that appears on the top of the original Xbox Series X returns on the right portions of the Elite, providing a nice blend of textures that dissuade easy comparisons to DVR boxes. Concept Creator's Xbox Series X Elite design also has a white variant, channeling the design of the Xbox Series S, the original console's little sister.
As it stands, not much (if anything) is known about the next iteration of the Xbox Series X. Microsoft's next family of consoles have been out for over a year, and while the Xbox Series S sold very well during Black Friday this year, still not everyone who desires one of these systems has been able to get one yet. With that in mind, while it is fun to think about the future of these systems and what they may look like, Microsoft's priority should still be in making its current lineup more available. Unless the Xbox Series X Elite magically doesn't require microchips, it will likely fall into the same issues as the current console lineup.

Sony's wild new PS5 controller concept could be a game-changer – Creative Bloq

(Quite literally.)
It’s fair to say we weren’t enamoured with the design of Sony’s DualSense controller when it was revealed last year. Like the PS5 itself, the controller is somewhat, er, chonky – but it seems Sony is already working on slimmer design concepts.
A new patent filing reveals the company is working on a new controller design featuring a collapsible control stick. This means the joystick could retract into the body of the controller itself, allowing for a more svelte (and potentially more comfortable) design. And while it might just be a patent, at this rate it might well arrive before the next PS5 restock

The patent filing itself offers little in the way of information about how the controller will work, simply describing: “A controller, thumbstick, or system comprising a thumbstick body, a thumbstick shaft coupled to the thumbstick body wherein the thumbstick shaft is configured to retract into the thumbstick body and wherein the thumbstick body and the thumbstick shaft is freely rotatable together around a pivot centre within the controller body.” (You know when you read a word so many times that it loses all meaning? Yeah, thumbstick.)
But it seems the concept is all about comfort. “Analog nubs are portable but also very uncomfortable for the user,” Sony says in the filing. “The user moves the flat surface or rough area with pressure from their thumb. This can become quite uncomfortable after a while because the required friction between the user’s thumb and the surface.” 
As with all patents, whether this design will ever see the light of day remains to be seen, but it’s certainly intriguing – and we can’t help but wonder if it’s offering us a glimpse of the next generation of DualSense. If a PS5 ‘Slim’ ever makes it to market (hey, every PlayStation generation has had one), perhaps it’ll arrive complete with a redesigned controller?

Indeed, a collapsible thumbstick could potentially transform the feel of the controller for gamers, offering a much more personalised and therefore comfortable experience. And it could do wonders for storage too – perhaps we’ll even end up with some kind of ‘DualSense Slim’ charging case. And we’re sure it could look pretty cool – better than that horrendous McDonald’s DualSense concept anyway. 
It seems Sony is finally ready to give gamers more options when it comes to the look of the PS5. From those new coloured faceplates to rumours of a console redesign, the days of being restricted to Sony’s reverse-oreo (sorry, white-on-black) design are coming to an end. And perhaps in the near future, we’ll have a brand new controller to enjoy too. Want to start gaming right now? Check out today’s best games console deals below.
