We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
Test Drive Unlimited 2's launch earlier this month was a rocky one. The game's forums were lit up with gamers vocalizing issues they encountered with the racer, with developer Eden Games later patching in fixes. Now, the French studio is giving away downloadable content to say "thank you" for sticking it out.
According to an Atari employee post on the game's forums, Atari will give away digital copies of the Exploration Pack. The add-on content includes new vehicles, the Lancia Stratos version Rallye and 1969 Dodge Charger, as well as a laundry list of fixes (listed below).
The content is already live for the PC and is sitting in certification from Microsoft and Sony, with it set to premiere "shortly."
