Following a recent beta test (that eventually spawned this Joystiq Streams roadtrip), Ubisoft has announced plans for another public test of open-world racer The Crew.

According to Ubisoft, the second beta test will begin on August 25 and run through August 29. No progress earned during the prior beta will carry over to this second test, though this time players will not be constrained by an NDA, and can freely discuss The Crew as they'd like. If you took part in the first beta test you're automatically granted access to the second test, but any new players should register as soon as possible as there are a finite number of spots available to the public.

Barring any major catastrophes, The Crew should make its official retail debut on November 11.
