Ubisoft announced a major expansion pack for its open-world racer The Crew. Titled Wild Run, it adds a four new vehicle types to the game, all while installing an element not unlike Forza Horizon's Horizon Festival, called The Summit.

Those new vehicle classes are the big draw here, if only because so few of them have been represented in a big-budget console title. There will be monster trucks, for one, and based on the expansion's trailer, you'll have many ramps and jumps to play with. Joining them, gamers will also get access to motorcycles. We spotted a handsome Ducati in the trailer, and expect that it's only a small part of the two-wheeled roster. Finally, The Crew expands on its production vehicles, adding Drift and Dragster classes.

The Summit, meanwhile, sounds a whole lot like the Horizon Festival, although without the emphasis on music. The description in the trailer calls it "a huge gathering of drivers and racing enthusiasts facing off in a series of extreme events set in iconic US locations." Like we said, it sounds like Horizon.

Check out the trailer up top, and let us know if you think this expansion will make enough additions to what we found to be a rather disappointing open-world racer. The Crew: Wild Run will be available November 17 for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
