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. More info lies beneath.

Frankly everyone should know that the idea of spending V Day in Ibiza is obviously a bad one. But now the night of enforced romance is over, is it worth booking flights and hiring a car? Atari list the fixes as follows:

*Logging into the game has been improved
*Once into the game the online network experience is now much more stable in all areas
*Save games no longer corrupt
*Existing corrupted save games will be repaired in many cases
*Friends lists are now populated
*Invites now work correctly
*Clubs have been brought back online
*Exploits to gain money have been fixed
*Casino access has been improved
*Players will no longer lose money because of the Casino bug

It is one of those lists that makes you ask, "Did you not think those things might have been important before release?" But they're addressed now, which certainly makes the game more approachable.

To apologise, in the stead of flowers or chocolates, come wrecked cars. I love gaming. That's the first DLC, presumably previously to have been charged for, now free to you. The Exploration Pack includes a bunch of new wrecks to discover, which will unlock you the "Lancia Stratos version Rallye" (is that right?) and the 1969 Dodge Charger.

They say to keep reporting remaining issues, which will be addressed in time.
