The next manufacturer to be announced for Test Drive Unlimited is Nissan, presented with this trailer. Atari also announced that a new demo will be released on the Marketplace tomorrow, and that the E3 demo was downloaded over 200 000 times! More info about the demo inside.
Atari writes: With the new demo allowing up to one hour of play in a 60km² area of the graphically polished and geographically accurate Hawaiian island of Oahu, players will have time to discover a stunning new house, three delicious new super cars – the Ferrari F430, Ford Mustang GT and AC Cobra – and one brutally powerful motorbike, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. Players can choose to accept one of the four new offline challenges, take on either of the two new online challenges with up to eight players racing simultaneously, launch instant challenges against anyone they encounter on the road, or just burn gallons of virtual gasoline tearing around the lush tropical roads in free ride. Other enhancements include tighter handling, snappy gear changes, customizable speed blur effects, optional in-car camera vibrations, improved lag allowing eight player online races, fully operational vsync, an incredible level of overall graphical polish, and much more.
Well...as for Gears, i am glad MS is not in any hurry for the next one, clearly letting the studio take their time. Whatever happens...it cannot be like Judgment. ugh. (22 minutes ago)
Cliffy's game may come first, and we haven't even seen it. Also relevant as he was the lead on GoW. (30 minutes ago)
The UT prototype is already pretty fun, and I find the whole dev. cycle pretty promising. That said.. we're a long ways out from a feature complete beta. (30 minutes ago)
Gears was the shit even though it was flawed by server host advantage. Hopefully Unreal Tournament can be the next great FPS. (53 minutes ago)
Gears of War was *the game* on Xbox Live during the early days of the Xbox 360. It was an important title for Microsoft because they needed something to keep us waiting for Halo. Times have changed. (2 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I really doubt it would have been a success or have become a franchise without multiplayer. It was just a run of the mill shooter. (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Hmm..well for me it was all about the great campaigns, not so much MP. (3 Hours ago)
