Forza Horizon 5 rival gets big seasonal update, is free to play this weekend

The open-world racing genre has been pretty much dominated lately by games like Forza Horizon 5, which brings the more simulation-heavy focus of the Forza Motorsport series right into a breezier, arcade style romp throughout fictional racing festivals the world over. Still, Ubisoft has tried to get out ahead of Forza Horizon with its own series, The Crew, and particularly its Horizon indebted latest entry, The Crew Motorfest. Now there’s excellent news for anyone curious to see what the O’ahu, Hawaii set open-world racer is all about as Motorfest is celebrating its latest seasonal update with a free weekend.

The racing game‘s season 3 update adds quite a lot of Hollywood inspired features to The Crew Motorfest, including a ton of recent vehicles, maps and modes. The Hollywood Action! playlist, for example, provides movie style objectives where players drive famous film cars (like a 1963 Aston Martin DB5 popularized by James Bond) through courses which may challenge them with pulling off destructive stunts or attempting to stay inside the lens of a director’s camera. Season 3 may also begin a rollout of dozens of recent vehicles and changes to the sport’s Main Stage similar to reworked and returning events and challenges, and appearances from notable real-world racers and streamers.

Ubisoft is celebrating this seasonal update by offering The Crew Motorfest’s first free weekend. From Thursday March 14 to Monday March 18, players will have the opportunity to present the sport a spin on PC through the Epic Games Store or Ubisoft Connect.
