TDU World is finally here! On the 10th anniversary of Test Drive Unlimited 2, we are releasing the first version of our multiplayer mod.

In the future, we will expand on the features of our mod. But for now, the gamemode most valuable to players - freeroam - is fully working after extensive testing by our beta tester team.


How to install (V1.01):

Step 1: Installing TDU2

  1. Perform a clean install of Test Drive Unlimited 2
  2. Go here and download Update DLC2 v034 (Warning: Russian versions of the game may crash when using this version of the updates. You may need the RU Pack!)
  3. Once downloaded, install the patch by copying all files to your Test Drive Unlimited 2 directory

Step 2: Unpacking TDU2

  1. Go here and download the TDU2 Unpacker GUI
  2. Rename your current Test Drive Unlimited 2 directory to TDU2 Stock
  3. Create a new folder in the folder where the TDU2 Stock directory is located, called Test Drive Unlimited 2
  4. Run the Unpacker and let it unpack the TDU2 Stock folder to the new Test Drive Unlimited 2 folder. This will create a full new copy of the game, using the original directory path.
  5. Copy the key.txt from the original directory over to the new directory.
    If the key.txt file does not exist in your directory, create the text file yourself and paste your game key inside.

    To get the Steam overlay to work, copy steam_api.dll from the old directory over to the new one manually.

Step 3: Installing TDU World

  1. Go to TDUWorld.com & register an account
  2. After registering is completed, head to the Download tab and download the installer.
  3. Run the installer and install it to the unpacked Test Drive Unlimited 2 directory.
  4. Remove any existing save files in Documents\Eden Games\Test Drive Unlimited 2
  5. Open the game and register a new account using your TDU World credentials.
  6. Congratulations, you can now play online!

User Feedback


excuse me, does this mod work with unofficial patch 0.4 ?

Response from the author:


Yes, it does. But in the future it will be replaced (or be part) of our modpack. So cars might be replaced in the future!

Everything working, but my map will not open when M is pressed on my keyboard. I have all of the patches and the DLL, but it has done this to my game.

Response from the author:

Hi James,

There have been multiple cases with this issue. In some languages, the map button is bound to another key.

For instance, it is 'ç' in Portugal. Rebinding it to M does not work at the moment.
