According to GRY-OnLine, a sequel to Test Drive Unlimited is being developed for PC and Xbox 360 and is scheduled to be released in March 2008. Test Drive Unlimited 2 will feature licensed vehicles from the most famous Italian car company's like: Ferrari, Maserati, Bugatti, Pagani, Saleen, McLaren and many more. The sequel will also introduce off-road cars (two and four wheels), SUVs, 4WD, enduro bikes and buggies (Lamborghini LM005, Mercedes GL, Audi Q7, Hummer, Range Rover, VW Touareg and many more). Players will be able to drive in a 1500 km2 area with streets, highways, off-road tracks. There will be over 2400 km different roads (mud, sand, rock and asphalt), dynamic weather (rain, fog and storms), night and day cycles, and several online modes.



Sounds awesome, wonder if it will debut at 40 bucks? Im all for having the off road vehicles in the game as well. Could be a real good racer..TDU/Burnout is the only racers I am willing to play...My only complaint is that it is coming out so soon since I am not done with TDU.

The DLC never bothered me it was rightly priced and wasnt needed like I originally thought they were going to rob us...The game could be considered complete without it and I will only welcome it...Especially if they keep their price point..What is like 5 cars for 350 points? Thats pretty cheap..Free would be nice but beggars cant be choosers...Good stuff...


I like the idea of off road vehicles and FINALLY SUVS...The only downfall is people buying them and ramming other cars...

If they have the original purchase at $40, that's cool with me. I just don't want them to do the same thing over again and slap the $60 pricetag when they purposely leave out stuff to charge extra later. I thought TDU was a good way to handle the extras they planned.

Ohh yeah 60 bucks and I wouldnt bite...But the ironic thing about that is that its my favorite racer...Granted I wouldnt pay 60 bucks for any racing game...But thats just me. It could be worst, I hear Atari just laid off like 20% of their stuff. Hopefully this game doesnt suffer but how could it as long as they keep the original concept it should be awesome!...With the details of off road and regular tracks I am anxious to see how the new area turns out. I hope it isnt a desert setting like motorstorm but another type of island where it makes sense to be in boundaries because of the water...


Atari really wooed me with TDU, I hope they can do it again.

My only problem with TDU is that once I completed the single player game, I had no reason to keep playing. Everyone online is racing the jacked-up Saleen or an Enzo, the races are all blasts down the road, and its still IMPOSSIBLE to find friends online.....frustrating as hell.


Now that I picked up the wheel for Forza I'll likely give the game the once over again, but I doubt I'll find alot of reason to play other than to keep "tooling around".......sad too since the game was my obsession for quite awhile, carefully choosing the right car for each race.


I love the idea of a TDU2...I'll buy it.....but I hope they add more single player content, since their online component is pretty lousy if you ask me (when it comes to trying to find people on your friends list and get into a race or even just being able to drive around with them).

Have you tried the wheel in TDU yet? I'll send you my settings tonight and you can see if you like them.



I guess I'll have to start putting more time into TDU1, I'm still nowhere near unlocking that damned hardcore mode

No, the wheel hasn't been unpacked yet, too busy lately



I'll bust it out this weekend and check out the racing games to see how they play.....

Aw Cmon HeadRusch, that isn't true...if you stick around in the races, the host will call for class changes. E and F class races are the best! Or, just set up your own races with limitations. Anyway those A class cars aren't always the best choice for some races, and many people cannot control their cars anyway. What could be better than beating a CCR with a Marinello on the winding courses?


TDU is still as good as day 1 for me. I am still addicted to the freedom of driving anywhere I want at my own leisure, still love just cruising with 5-6 other dudes, still have races to win...heck reading this makes me want to pop it back in tonight.


$40 or $60, gee who cares about saving $20? In NYC thats breakfast and lunch for one day. TDU is (ok, one of) the best thing to ever happen for racing games. Don't get me wrong, there are MANY issues that need to be fixed in the 2nd version, but if they simply placed the same game in a new city + SUVs? I'm still good.

I thought the sp campaign was spot on. Long enough not to dull it out. I am still only like 23% done with the game and clocked in about 30+ hours.


The only I dont really use much but I rarely see anyone driving around those jacked up cars now..Its mainly bikes and lower class..Heck my favorite car in the game is the Alfa Romero that is a G or F class cant remember...Im not into the whole sports car side of things like the Enzo...I have an F1 Mclaren and I freaking HATE that car...


If I do recall you were the one who originally persuaded me to buy the game because of the SP campaign you praised.

hardcore mode was the most retarded purchase ive ever made on XBL


seriously, its impossible to go anywhere, the minute you hit the gas, you spin out. the minute you turn, you spin out, the minute you hit the brakes, you spin out.


i paid 150 or 200ms points for the ability to spin my tires no matter what i'm doing.

It's like if they are going to do a hardcore mode, they should do it right, or don't have it at all.


I personally think it takes the fun out of the game.


When a game can combine PGR, Forza, and TDU, then we can talk!

The SP campaign was amazing, I just want more of it



I like my Mclaren
At least I think I do, its been awhile! The wheel will change things up for me, I recall having a reasonable amount of cars....I think the wheel will likely help because my original gripe about the game was that some of the high-end cars were somewhat uncontrollable with the pad when you were fighting a time limit, like that awful Maserati blast down the mountainside you had to do in the MC12, almost at full speed, while dodging traffic. That one race almost made me quit the game...


I may give the multi another try.....

That was one thing that I didn't like.. If you clicked on your friend from the map alot of times he wasn't there and it took alot of tries to finally get it..

Don't feel too bad, I bought it already and chances are I'll never even get a chance to use it. I really wish that hardcore mode was simply an option, but they force you to reach 'Champion' status just to get access to it, and at my current pace (and with Forza2 coming) I might never get that far...

Sounds good. I was pleasantly suprised with how good TDU 1 was. I'm in for the sequel.
