Gamesom's opening night has been a very good one for The Crew players. Ubisoft revealed a new trailer as well as detailing what is included in The Crew Motorfest's Gold and Ultimate Editions.

On top of this, details of the first Year 1 pass cars have been confirmed too. Arguably the biggest announcement though is that of The Crew Motorfest's free trial.

Between the 14th and 17th September, gamers will be able to play The Crew Motorfest for absolutely free. There's a five-hour time limit, but that's a good chance to try the game with no obligations before deciding whether to buy.

If you hadn't been chosen for The Crew Motorfest's Insider Program, this will be your first opportunity to play Motorfest for free.
