Test Drive Unlimited 2 unveiled ?

Test Drive Unlimited 2 unveiled ?

If we are to believe the rumors, Atari and Eden Studios are still working on Test Drive Unlimited 2. Reality might be quite close since knowledgeable forumers just released a big round of artworks which speak volumes about new possibilities for this long awaited sequel. First details to emerge are Off-road circuits and new classes of vehicles including SUVs, buggies, motocross and ATVs. We still have no information regarding a release date.

Very cool and great looking artwork. Maybe this will become the game FUEL wanted to be?

Hopefully it will be the game that TDU wanted to be. A game with TDU's ambition and much better core gameplay would be a beautiful, beautiful thing.

I thought TDU was a fun game, got it for like £5 and played it for dozens of hours, very simple and very fun. Could use a bit more diversity than just racing cars, would be fun to be able to get out and walk around, custom avatar etc.
Just hope they dont change it for the sake of changing it, a step away from the mmoish version to something more akin to a standard racer would be a real loss.

I've heard that TDU will be using the new CryEngine 2 which I'm sure, utilise properly can be truly an eyecandied experience.

that rumour wasnt even a rumour its was one websites opinion based on the concept art its safe to dismiss it, eden used their own engine for tdu (garden engine i think)

Pretty much how I feel. I loved the concept of TDU, but just hated the gameplay.. Seems most people felt the same. I really tried to like it, I even downloaded the second "improved" demo, but couldn't really tell the difference.

Also felt the island was a little bland, but if this art is anything to go by, that at least seems to be fixed.

i really liked TDU. it had its share of problems but it ran well on my meager laptop so that in itself was an achievement :P

Hopefully this sequel will actually be good!

TDU was promising but despite the gorgeous tropical setting of Hawaii the tracks all looked the same after a while, it was always daylight, the weather never changed and the island was oddly devoid of people, something which utterly ruined the atmosphere for me. The killer though was the terrible vehicle handling, particularly the motorbikes, but Eden Games also developed the V-Rally series of games too so it wasn't that surprising.

I think I enjoyed it for the first eight hours or so, just driving around doing the odd delivery mission but then it gone dull... really dull, and I never bothered with it after that. Nice concept with pleasant graphics but not very well executed IMO. Felt more like a tech demo than a proper game to me, which strangely is exactly what I thought of their next game, Alone in the Dark, too!

Exactly, not even worth calling it a far-fetched rumour. Hey look: Tree's! Cryengine for sure! :|

Hey, Starcraft 2 has trees too! Omigod its using the Starcraft 2 engine! XD
By the way, those artwork's look awesome. But is it just me or is there a huge Jurassic Park vibe from those enviroments? :D :D

Test Drive meets MotorStorm. Can be interesting.

Please don't say that, I wasn't too fond of TDU and hated Motorstorm =(

The concept of TDU was good though, so done right... this could be a great game.

TDU is a quite good (but not the best) game and I love both MotorStorms (some concepts of TDU2 look like they were from MotorStorm) and Smugglers Run 2. I have big hopes that they can make a game that in some aspects can replace me Smugglers Run 2 on current consoles.

I own a g25 driving wheel and TDU is the best game ever for that wheel. I can't wait to play the sequel

    droezelke I have to say that AC:U has the best graphics in an open world game. You could point at the pop-in, but with 2000 NPC's less, it probably wouldn't have issues with that. (4 Hours ago)

    Loakum I find it offensive, that lesbian midgets are not represent in video games. I would love for the day, when I can play as a lesbian midget character. (5 Hours ago)
