UPDATE #3 - 24th June, 2011 @ 21:00AM GMT+1

 

As has been confirmed by tdu2.co.uk but somewhat hesitantly received by some who feel that it may be false (due "to anyone being able to create a blog"), I can state that an Atari official has confirmed that the Exploration Pack DLC is definitely coming. It hasn't been canned, cancelled, terminated or fed to the local village idiot. It is coming and hopefully very erm ....well you know.

 

It's news already known but I know how some people like to have these things confirmed so here you go; it's confirmed.

 

You may also not need to wait for those flying pigs to see official words about this either.

 

UPDATE #2 - 5th May 2011 @ 10:00AM GMT

 

PC Patch/Pack now available to download, start your Launchers and it will proceed to download it; 800Mb+ file.

Wait for confirmation before downloading as there is an error around 50%.

Patch/Pack appears fine now. If you do get an error though then try this suggestion found by members of TDU2.com forum.

 

UPDATE #1 - 5th May 2011 @ 01:55AM GMT

 

Destra just posted this exciting bit of info over at the official forums so get ready PC folk because it is coming to you guys within the next 24 hours. :D

The charger looks better then I imagined it would.

...but the Stratos looks alot worse. Hopefull thats just because of the stupid white paint job and poor camera angles.

 

Not looking forward to hunting them down though... unless we can organise a hunt cruise at some point!? :D

Excellent stuff, the things people have been asking for are being added and fixed. Hopefully this will put some reassurance into people though I can hear the "what about X" minority cracking their fingers and getting ready to type. *sigh*

 

Great work Eden and Atari! Thanks a lot.
