Test Drive Unlimited 2 DLC 2 Detailed. Bikes are in.

on December 7, 2011 3:30 PM

Test Drive Unlimited 2 didn’t have what you’d define a stellar launch, but many (me included) still play it because it’s free-driving online sandbox environment is almost unique in the gaming market. Looks like Atari and Eden Games are still working on updating it, as today they detailed the contents of the second DLC package that will be released somewhere around February.

The most exciting feature is definitely the addition of bikes, that were already present in Test Drive Unlimited, and will finally make a comeback in the sequel. They will come with 16 challenges dedicated to two-wheels riding.

You can check the full patch note beyond the cut. It might be a good time to check the game out if you like sandbox experiences and driving, as it’s sold dirt cheap during basically every Steam sale. The Christmas one shouldn’t be too far.

UPDATE: while it was mentioned in the forum a long time ago that the DLC should be free, the lack of recent confirmation actually puts that in doubt. The post has been edited to reflect that, and we reached out to Atari to receive further information directly from the horse’s mouth. We will update further if we receive a clarification.
