Test Drive Unlimited zooms onto 360

New barrage of screens to enjoy, all featuring a rather splendid looking red motor - them's the ones that go fastest

Looks like the Xbox 360's going to be blessed with an abundance of decent racing games when you finally get your hands on it a week this Friday, and as well as flagship racer Project Gotham Racing 3, Atari's Test Drive Unlimited also looks like it'll be burning up the tarmac.

Set on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, perfect driving conditions are almost guaranteed and you'll be ripping it up in over 100 of the world's hottest motors across over 1000 virtual miles of open road. A welter of Live options are also promised with special challenges and community features like creating exclusive members' clubs to talk, trade cars and race with other like-minded speed demons in what Atari promises "is one of the most comprehensive online racing experience to date".


These six new screens should certainly give you a welcome taster of the Hawaiian-themed delights to come, although we are still waiting on concrete release date details on when it'll debut. Early part of next year is currently looking most likely.
