Yes Off-road should be fun, there will be a good amount of SUVs and rally cars. I think if they really get the flaws of TDU1 under control, they will have a massive winner with TDU2. I loved the first one, with its crappy netcode and limited club features, so if they can fix that and add all those nice things as seen in that preview video, they will have a massive winner. No doubt.

I also read people will able to exit cars and walk around their car or their buddies cars (passengers as well) in first-person mode. Not sure if characters will be visible as they walk around but it kind of would make sense.

And apparently there won't be any bikes at launch in the game, but added later on via patch and/or DLC.

I can't wait for this game, i may finally have to buy a nice wheel considering the amount of racing games im going to play this year....I fell victim to the awesome deal of the codemasters racing games on steam.

Done. I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to like this or not. What's funny is I remember having a good time in TDU, but then when I play it again I remember why it annoys me.

There needs to be an option for free ride, where you can just turn off the cops and lower the traffic. It's so annoying when you get a star because you're almost guaranteed that if you keep driving you'll end up getting busted. Especially when other people are around you and either ram you into something or the game glitches and cars spawn from nowhere.

I've only been busted a couple of times and that was when I first started playing.

Drive better

But yah I agree with you.

Turn off the cops and/or other vehicles when you just want to have a nice drive.

Yea I think I do need to drive better.

The problem is that I like to go 200mph everywhere, and it's only a matter of time before you hit something.

It seems likely, then, that the same kind of DRM that has beset the PC versions of Assassin's Creed 2 and Settlers 7 will be present in Test Drive Unlimited 2 and The Witcher 2, at least in Europe.
Have fun Euro Players!

Nice to see that the game is going to launch at $40 on the PC and $50 on the consoles. The pre-order bonuses from Gamestop and Walmart are balls, but the ones from Best Buy and Amazon are intriguing, especially since I've actually driven a DB9 and Vantage (V8).

If you order the PS3 or 360 version from Amazon, you'll get a $10 credit to use on a future video game purchase.

Okay I'll bite, how did you get to drive a DB9 and Vantage? I'm jealous.
