The closed PC beta for The Crew has been brought forward to next Monday, July 21 and will run until next Friday, July 25, Ubisoft has announced.

The beta previously wasn't due to go live until two days later on July 23.

As well as bringing the beta forward, Ubisoft also released details on what players should expect from it, confirming that you'll be able to explore the entire map and try out various car specs.

Missions and challenges will only be available in the Midweat and East Coast areas of the map, however, and Ubisoft asks fans to "remember that this beta does not represent the final state of the game".

"Many changes will be applied before the final release on November 11," the publisher says.

To sign up for the beta, head through to the official website.
