The Exploration Pack adds new cars, events and outfits. There's also a stereoscopic 3D mode added should you have the set-up and wish to race in all three dimensions. The complete patch list can be found after the jump.

The original Test Drive Unlimited was a free roaming open world racer set on a Hawaiian island. You could cruise around looking for races and earning money to buy new cars and houses, and it was a promising precursor to games like the excellent Burnout Paradise, with an MMO-slant that's still unique today. Test Drive Unlimited 2 is looking to usurp Criterion's street racer with a sequel that boasts bigger and prettier locations, showcased in the latest trailer, embedded below.
