Atari announces development of Test Drive Unlimited 2, saying the racing sequel will offer "All-new race types, vehicle classes, environmental challenges, locations and much more," when it is released for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 this fall. They describe the game's genre as Massively Open Online Racing or M.O.O.R. (those are registered trademarks), saying this immerses: "drivers in a persistent online environment and revolutionizing multiplayer racing communities as players compete, team up, and share their achievements and creations online. Unlike any other driving game, TDU2 blends the open world experience with realistic vehicles and performance dynamics and for the first time, TDU2 features vehicle damage, weather effects, day and night cycles, and a brand new island to explore." French developer Eden Games, who created the original, are handling the sequel. The Test Drive Unlimited 2 Website is online, offering newsletter signups and a few screenshots.

Very excited about TDU2. I thought it would never come out.

I just hope they fix the clubs that never worked in the first. And I hope that this time they finish hardcore mode and allow you to do the missions in H mode.

Also hope they fixed the upgrades.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 details have dropped in the latest issue of GameReactor, confirming the game will take place on the Spanish party island of Ibiza. Big-fish-little-fish inclusion is unconfirmed at this time.

The magazine also mentions the sequel is 2.5 times bigger then the original (1800km of roads and 800 km of off road tracks), has added SUVs to the mix and now has a proper 24-hour day-night cycle.

Apparently the racer has a new co-op mode, where one person gets to be the driver while the other reads the map.

Developer Eden Studios added a damage model to the game as well

Interesting stuff, so there will be more roads but on a smaller island (Ibiza is about half the size of Oahu I think). I just hope they make the roads a bit more smoother and work on the "hardcore driving mode" to make it usable with the supercars as well. :)

Smoother roads?

Come on Agent, have you ever DRIVEN in Oahu :D

TDU's roads were far smoother than in Oahu in actuality :D

I still loved the game though. Absolutely fantastic experience. Can't wait for the new one :)

Eh, that might work out though, it sounds kind of fun! Look forward to this game, like the first one a lot. Hopefully they've been working on it for the last 3-4 years and it's just about ready to come out!

Noo I wish, I didn't have a chance to make a vacation there, but I certainly have seen some photos with really scary looking roads over there. I don't mind bumps at all as long as they have enough polygons, thats basically what I meant with "smoother".

The new one should be quite interesting, Ibiza is a pretty cool island but I was a bit surprised that they picked it. I wonder if they will implement any "stereotypes" of that island, because if that will be the case it will be pretty damn hilarious! :lol:

20 minutes for the fastest car to get across the island?

I wonder how many hours to drive around along the coast :D

I know it took almost an hour to go around in the first one.

Across island == usually shortest route.

On Oahu, I think highway 3 runs up the middle. On Ibiza, there is a straight cut in the middle going north to south so I presume that would be 20 minutes.

It would take a lot longer travelling the other routes and, if you don't have the fastest car and are not driving balls to the wall, you will take a LOT longer.

20 minutes is plenty of time :D

Also, there are LOTS of twisty roads on the map. I can't wait to have a go :D

Better have proper G27 support. Like 720+ degrees of rotation, and a working clutch.

I stop too often to take pictures in Oahu to time myself :D

Plus the speed limit is like 35 MPH legally most roads :rofl
