Eden Games Go On Strike Against Atari

Eden Games - they behind Test Drive Unlimited 2 and the V-Rally series - and have had enough of their treatment from Atari, and in the face of enormous redundancies at the company and have gone on strike today. GI.biz report that in the face of sackings, the French studio has said enough, and are refusing to work. And they've a few choice words to…

Test Drive Unlimited 2 Says Sorry, Patches

You may remember that Test Drive Unlimited 2 did not have a great Valentine's Day. Launched to cries of, "Er, could you finish it now please?", its buggy state did not win favour. Eden Games and Atari are attempting a big old "sorry" by offering not only a patch that addresses a lot of issues, but also the first globule of DLC for utterly free.…

Testing, Testing: Test Drive Unlimited 2 Bugs

In a surprise move for a videogame, free-roaming racer Test Drive Unlimited 2 "was released" last week, and is now available to buy in shops both real and imaginary the world over. You can read John's impressions of the beta here. It looks like all is not well in car land, however, as the game's shipped with some nasty technical issues across all platforms that…

Some Custom Cars In Test Drive Unlimited 2

So I was just having a look at the customization trailer for Test Drive Unlimited 2 (because in my soul I am actually dude in a hoodie driving around my neighbourhood in a noisy hatchback with bucket seats) which you can also see below. And the cars look good. But that's not what got my attention. It was more that, well, the environments - and…

Bit Of Posh: Test Drive Unlimited 2

Come on open world racing games, smarten up. After the weak Need For Speed World, and the almost great Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, I'm now banking my hopes on next year's big-money, big-car Test Drive Unlimited 2. The original Test Drive Unlimited also fell into the "almost great" category, so I'm very much hoping to see even more this time. To get an idea…

Most Tranquil: Test Drive’s Ferrari

If you are a British motorist, like me, then you are more likely to associate sports cars with Jeremy Clarkson's sad, frantic clowning than you are any sense of genuine style or chic, which is something of a shame. After all, objects like modern Ferraris really are engineering genius pushed to fetishistic extremes, and I think that's what Atari and Eden Games are getting at…

Test Drive Unlimited 2 Gets Environmental

Test Drive Unlimited was great, and not nearly enough people played it. For which you should feel just awful. There's a sequel coming out on 21st September. Perhaps you've already signed up for the beta, checked out the details known so far, and I hope to goodness you've read Alec's review of the original. What you should do today is watch the latest trailer showing…

Why To Test Drive Test Drive Unlimited 2

Cheap Punning Rule #48 - if in doubt, tautology. What other Cheap Punning Rules do you know, beautiful readers? Anyway, the point: Atari has opened up beta signups for its driving/infinite wealth MMO Test Drive Unlimited 2. You should sign up. Why? Because the first TDU was by and large excellent, exploring fascinating and fundamental concepts of virtual-world existence that the vast bulk of MMOs…

Test Drive Unlimited 2 Does Beta

Interesting times for racing games, what with the fantastical feature sets of Blur and Split/Second, and then open-worldiness descending this summer in the form of Test Drive Unlimited 2 (and, I suppose, in the form of the Need For Speed MMO). Eden Games have sent word that there's a limited sign up for the beta phase of the new Test Drive Unlimited, although no details…

Ibiza Uncovered: Test Drive Unlimited 2

News of Test Drive Unlimited 2 has caught me by surprise, despite its having been announced in March. I'm so good at my job. The original, released on PC in 2007, was an unfairly overlooked driving game set on the Hawaiian island O Ľahu, with 1,000 miles of roads to race about on. What made it so interesting was the population of this island: other players.…
