octagons...

Anerythristic266514d ago

What is the concept behind this game. Is it arcade based or like Forza or do you just drive around in any car you want?

PS360PCROCKS6514d ago

You must be waiting for the PS3

PS360PCROCKS6514d ago

any car u want, get the demo, it's sweet, it's a huge open game and yeah

Anerythristic266514d ago

I'll just download the demo of Live.

Anerythristic266514d ago

Another thing real quick. Will you be able to race against people on real street and not tracks on XBL?

Cyclonus6514d ago

just because I dont get a hard-on for every 360 game, im a PS3 guy? look at any of my posts, I fvcking hate Sony...I think the in car view's crap, so what. how do you take that to mean im a Fonyfanboy?

Lucidmantra6513d ago

The game is a massively open game environment where you cruise around with other people online and race (instanced races to stop sploting with car club memebrs) and you can chat and talk and chill while driving around. 1000 miles of road mapped of hawaii. Tons of cars.

It game is a MMO. A massive multiplay online game with a couple thousand people driving around hawaii with over 1000 miles of track. You can buy some of the 65 houses in the game, create tornaments put your car as a prize and charge people to enter. You can visit actual clothing retailers in game such as marc's ecko and pimp out your character. It's sims meet project gotham.

USMChardcharger6514d ago

to add on to what he said about the mmo...even though there are thousands of people driving around...you will only see and play with those who's connection is best with yours. i don't recall how many that is though.

shotty6514d ago

Ya that makes sense, no point in having laggers in your world driving all over the place.

PS360PCROCKS6514d ago

just because this game is hardly looking like crap, you design me a better in car-view and we'll talk, atleast it's detailed, and it's just a picture...the in-game in-car for the 3 cars in the demo are awesome

Lucidmantra6513d ago

agreed they are doing an excellent job with this, and the fact is the gfx are getting a upgrade but they are doing their business with the fact it is an online persistent world where you race against people not dumbass AI constantly. In a open area where you make the courses and choose the races, then you chill with buddies, and explore the world.

PS360PCROCKS6513d ago

yep, is the demo kinda live, like other people driving around on xbox live? I have noticed some of the other cars uh like to hit me and crash into other cars as well, lol...

Nice. Loved TDU 1 and 2, hopefully they do a good job.

Bk2Xxclusive2676d ago

I loved part 1 that had simulate racing physics and handling. Part 2 just fucked it up for me with its arcade style handling. This is the only game that can compete against FH3 if they bring back the physic style handling.

Veneno2676d ago

Most of the additions to TDU2 were not great but it did not ruin the game for me. This new one needs to have more than just Euro cars if it really wants to compete.

quent2676d ago

Have never heard of this developer, still exciting news though, loved both previous games.

Veneno2676d ago

So happy to hear this news. My favorite racing series is back!!! Now Motorstorm needs to come back.

The 10 Biggest Open World Games of All Time

8CN: When it comes to game worlds, bigger isn't always better, but that doesn't make these 10 titles any less impressive.

Test Drive Unlimited was awesome, the driving mechanics were pretty poor but the island was fantastic and felt huge. I regularly would race around the outside edge of the map in a loop, each lap would take about an hour in real time.
