According to a tweet from Namco Bandai UK marketing and PR man LeeKirton, the Xbox 360 patch for Test Drive Unlimited 2 should be out and about within two weeks' time. "Issues are being dealt with," continues Kirton's tweet.

 

Developer Eden Games also gave a heads up on the current status of the Xbox 360 patch, which will reportedly have to undergo internal testing for a couple of days more before they dispatch it to Microsoft for approval.

 

Eden Games plan to include the following fixes in the Xbox 360 patch:

  • Improve login process to allow a higher volume of successful connections
  • Increase online stability across all multiplayer functionality
  • Address issues related to file corruption
  • Enable Club and MyTDULife functionality
  • Enable Co-Op races
  • Enable weather while offline
  • Address an issue where players can get a Lancia which has no car data (the patch should prevent this from occurring in the future, and restore players who are currently affected by the issue)

 

It's worth noting that depending on the results of the QA process, some of the fixes listed above may not go live when the patch is released.

 

The patch announcement post on the Test Drive Unlimited 2 forum also included a quick update on the status of Test Drive Unlimited 2's various services and features:

 

Service Status

 

  • Online Play – Online, being monitored closely
  • DLC Purchasing – Online
  • Pre-Order Code Redemption - Online
  • Pre-Order Casino Code Redemption -Online
  • Getting pre-order cars and Casino in-game - Some users are reporting that their cars don't show up in the Used Car Dealer after the code is redeemed. If this affects you, try playing the game in Offline Mode to see if the cars show up.
  • Getting pre-order cars and Casino in-game - There is a bug where pre-order cars don't show up in the Used Car dealer if you are online. However, you can play Offline, purchase the car, then sign back on and you'll still have it.
  • MyTDU2Life - Offline - This is working as designed. TDU2MyLife is dependent on the Club Server.
  • Clubs - Offline - Scheduled to go live when the next patch is released.

Until the next round of optimizations goes live, you may experience issues with:

 

  • Signing in to online mode
  • Seeing other players in the world and on the map
  • Seeing your Friends lists and sending/receiving friend requests
  • Claiming your pre-order cars and accessing the Casino
  • Entering multiplayer races and joining friends' sessions
  • In-game communications

 

Issues being investigated once multiplayer issues are resolved:

 

  • No Accessory/Avatar Controls (Xbox Wheel) - Xbox wheel users report that they cannot control the accessories or their Avatar if they are using a racing wheel. This will be looked into after the current round of priorities is addressed.
