TDU2 is the long-awaited sequel to the open-world racing game Test Drive Unlimited. It is developed by Eden Games and published by Atari. The game will be released for all three major gaming platforms (Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC) in February 2011.
The developers of Test Drive Unlimited 2 call it a “M.O.O.R.” game, which stands for Massively Open Online Racing. The multiplayer will be pretty similar to the first game and require no subscription fee to play. Players will be able to build and grow racing clubs, join free roam sessions and walk around in shops, clubs and the new racing lobby. It will be possible to customize the club logo, the look of your avatar, your home, and, of course, the cars themselves.
The game will feature highly realistic racing tracks in the Oahu island (Hawaii) and Ibiza (Mediterranean) created with the help of satellite imagery. The single player mode of TDU 2 will have a storyline to follow; in order to advance, the players will have to earn experience points through Competition, Social, Discovery and Collection means. The maximum level is 60, and additional 10 levels are available with the TDU2: Casino Online DLC.
