Interested users will have to apply to become a beta tester, and Eden will choose potential applicants based not only on their knowledge of the racing genre, but also on their overall passion for gaming, meaning that you probably won’t have to be a gear head to get in.
As for what players can expect from the game itself – Test Drive Unlimited 2 offers a parallel between hardcore tuning of vehicles, single and multiplayer racing, and in-depth avatar customization (including clothing and accessories befitting your driver’s international lifestyle) and property acquisition. Eden promises that the game will continue to evolve over time, creating more than a stock racing experience by adding new challenges as the game grows.
Vince Farquharson, Executive Producer at Atari, the game’s publisher, has this to say about how the title is developing:
“Test Drive Unlimited 2 is expanding on the worldwide success of Test Drive Unlimited and we’re thrilled to be giving racing fanatics another chance to play full throttle in this stunning M.O.O.R. vdeo game. At this point in the title’s development we are looking for opinions, feedback and rigorous road testing from our beta testers to help us optimize the performance, handling, and the final feel of the game. These beta testers will be among the first players on earth to experience Test Drive Unlimited 2, and their views will help make this title an even bigger success.”
