Atari and Eden Games have finally got their act together and are planning to release an exhaustive patch for Test Drive Unlimited 2 that fixes a slew of bugs and other glitches, such as cars and avatars turning invisible, cars being launches into the air and the ability to drive through certain parts of the scenery.

Apparently, the update is coming "very soon" and will improve a whole variety of gameplay facets as well as patching a lot of the game's most glaring issues. It will also arrive alongside a rather generous game add-on, which will be available completely free.

The 'Exploration' DLC pack will bundle 20 new events, 2 new event types, new cars and a lot more besides for absolutely nothing, as a way of apologising for the ongoing problems with TDU2. Now you can look forward to playing the game as it was always meant to be, and get some free content into the bargain.

New content

  • 20 new events
  • 2 new events types
  • Extreme convoy: one mistake and the mission is over
  • Timed convoy: it is a convoy mission...but with a timer!
  • Each completed event gives access to a new wreck
  • 20 new wrecks give 2 new cars (10 wrecks = 1 car):
  • Lancia Stratos version Rallye

  • 1 new set of clothes (explorer) Male/Female
  • 2 new MP Races (Specifically for the Lancia Stratos version Rallye)
