Quote:
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.
