On Monday, August 25th Ubisoft’s action RPG racing game The Crew will launch a closed Beta for PC. To get an access key you’ll have to pre-order the game, which no one wants to do without a decent enough incentive. Fortunately there are a few good offers out there.
The Crew’s Best Pre-order:
- Update: 8/25: GameFly’s discount is no longer valid, but the best deal is now Green Man Gaming with a $12 store credit + Beta Access Key
GameFly for $47.99 20% off coupon AUG20OFF or UKAUG20OFF
GameFly is hands down your best pre-order offer if you live in the United States or UK. The coupon mentioned above only works in the US, while coupon UKAUG20OFF will work for those in the United Kingdom. Elsewhere, the coupon won’t work and you’re better off ordering elsewhere. Hands down the best because you get all the standard pre-order bonuses and Beta Access, though we should note that GameFly’s coupon is only good through the month of August. If you pre-order before August 25th you’re guaranteed day-one beta access. If you pre-order The Crew between August 25th and August 28th, you’ll receive your beta key immediately. Not bad.
Gold Edition at Gamefly for $67.99 Coupon AUG20OFF or UKAUG20OFF
Gold Edition of The Crew is also available at Gamefly with the same 20% off discount – this beats out the price on Steam Store and Uplay by a long shot – especially since the Gold Edition will include Season Pass plus one-week early access to these content along with 6 car packs (standard edition gets zero, or 2 if you pre-order).
- Green Man Gaming for $59.99
- $12 store credit
The UK based retailer Green Man Gaming is your best bet outside the USA. They are a popular PC gaming retailer anyway and if you know you’re going to buy more games soon their $12 credit is almost as good as a straight up discount like at GameFly. You’ll get the standard pre-order incentives found elsewhere (Limited Edition upgrade) and Beta keys of course emailed out just like GameFly.
GameStop, Amazon, Uplay Shop
Beyond Beta Access and the Limited Edition upgrade found everywhere else, there isn’t a strong argument to be made to pre-order from these guys. Amazon is offering a $5 video games credit (not a store-wide credit), which is better than nothing, but GMG has a stronger $12 credit incentive.
What Else Is Included in The Crew Pre-Order
Pre-ordering The Crew will get your game upgraded to the “Limited Edition”. The Limited Edition will include 10,000 Bonus Cred Credits and 3 exclusive Street Edition DLC packs:
MINI Cooper S Pack
- A full set of custom parts (front bumper, rear bumper, motor hood, and rear wing)
- A full set of performance parts (motor core, tires, suspension, weight reduction, chassis, brakes, anti-roll bars, differential, engine, exhaust, ecu, carb, charger, and gear box)
BMW Z4 sDrive35is Pack
Dodge RAM SRT-10 Pack
