Vehicle Adjustments

From tyre rendering bugs to livery editor changes. The vehicle adjustments section of the new Season 2 of The Crew Motorfest patch notes is a good step in the right direction for Ubisoft.

  • The Crew 2 Season 9 vehicles and vanities content are now available in Motorfest.
  • Fixed some bugs in displaying vanities.
  • Gold and Violet Window tints are now correctly displayed in the vehicle customization menu.
  • Fixed Lamborghini Terzo Millennio tyre rendering.
  • Manual shift gear animation is no longer present for Bugatti La Voiture Noire.
  • Porsche 911 GT exhausts no longer have a pink outline.
  • Gearshifting animation is no longer missing when shifting up for the Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan.
  • Fixed the driving animation on the digital dashboard while in interior view for Koenigsegg Regera and Maserati MC12.
  • Scale, Free Scale, Skew and Transparency options are now functional in the livery editor.
  • Fixed several issues with livery shapes.

Playlist Adjustments

Season 2 brings a whole host of changes and bug fixes to the game’s playlists. From simple instruction changes to full challenge overhauls. The Crew Motorfest Season 2 steps up its game nicely and adds a decent range of variety to a somewhat underappreciated racing title.

  • Fixed the inconsistency between description and steps to complete for several challenges.
  • “Retro Top Driver” challenge now unlocks after completing the requirement at the “Grand Race”.
  • Fixed “A.L. Night Menace” challenge to unlock after satisfying all the mentioned conditions.

Achievement Adjustments

Whilst a small section of the update, complaints have been listened to regardless. The issues with achievements appear to have been addressed. Specifically on the Xbox version of The Crew Motorfest.

  • Updated achievements/trophies’ descriptions which were missing the “in the same session” mention.
  • Fixed a misleading icon for the “O’ahu Sights” achievement/trophy.
  • [Xbox] The Progression bar of Main Stage Headliner achievement is now updated after completing a timeline on the Motorfest Main Stage.
  • [Xbox] The Progression bar of the That’ll Buff Right Out achievement is now updating after destroying a vehicle in Demolition Royale.

The Crew Motorfest has fired up its second season with the addition of the late-great Ken Block’s Hoonigan brand. With an entire playlist dedicated to the new area, it seems players will have much more to do in The Crew Motorfest.
