Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown Drops a New Offroad Trailer, Devs Focusing on Server Stability

Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown is all about decadence and riding slick cars around its urban Hong Kong environment, or, at least, that’s what it’s mostly about. There actually is a more wild side to Hong Kong and during today’s Nacon Connect showcase we got a new trailer for Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown which shows off the game’s grittier offroad side and some of its heavier vehicles, including trucks, SUVs, and more. Check out the trailer for yourself, below.

While we’re at it, here’s a couple more trailers we haven’t posted – the first focuses on the more laid back city cruising experience…

…while the second is about the game’s high-octane races.

Those watching the new trailer may have noticed a lack of dust and dirt being kicked up by the cars, but the game’s developers promise that will be added later…

“The more observant among you will have noticed the absence of particle effects, especially dust and splashes on gravel roads. We’re still working on integrating and optimizing these effects. It’s an important element of off-road immersion but also resource- and performance-intensive. Our current development goal for this is to find the best balance between particle effects and performance while ensuring smooth gameplay remains a priority. Although we can display long dust trails like in the WRC games with the KT Engine, the scale of Hong Kong Island and the resources required to display other players and the detailed environments means it’s much more of a challenge in TDUSC.”

Haven’t been keeping up with what’s going on with Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown? Here’s a quick official description.

“Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown features the most eye-catching cars from a range of manufacturers, including the most prestigious: Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Dodge, Apollo and many others. However, you’ll need to work hard to earn the privilege of acquiring one! These luxury cars are not just a means of getting from A to B. They represent your ambition and reward your dedication. They make you proud. Remember: your cars reflect who you really are.

The customization and style possibilities are not just limited to your cars. Whether you belong to clan Sharp or clan Street, cultivate your style to impress others, stand out from the crowd and defend your clan.

On a Hong Kong Island recreated at 1:1 scale, with over 600km (375 miles) of roads through dense and varied terrain, the best drivers will battle for the ultimate prize: becoming the next winner of the Solar Crown and gaining the respect and recognition of their clan.”

Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown drifts onto PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PS5 in 2024. A specific release date has yet to be announced, but KT Racing promises they’re in the “home stretch” with the main focus now being on making sure servers will be stable in order to deliver on the game’s online MMO-like approach.
