Interested to see what happens with this game. Starting in December 2006 when I played the original TDU for countless hours/days/weeks, to TDU-2's release, again for what I presume was also many weeks worth of accumulated play-time. 

Can't wait to see how this unfolds and whether they actually listen to the suggestions made.

Most people here just want tdu to be a good game, at this point I don't care anymore I give up, i've got an m3 and an s1000r waiting outside, but for everyone else's sake let's hope tdusc is good enough so people can just play it and move on from having to waste time making mods. playing games is already a questionable use of time as it is

I disappear for a few months, completely forgot about TDU:SC and then was somewhat disappointed when I seen there's been no news on it what so ever. 

Shame. Hopeful we hear something this year.  

I'm guessing Nacon may have an anniversary event one year after their previous TDU SC reveal where we might get another morsel of information.  If we're lucky we might even get a rough idea when they're planning to release (I'd expect to first hear a release season or month rather than a release date).  I'm personally not expecting the game to release any earlier than November 2021 with the expectation of being able to play sometime in 2022.

Underwhelming, yeah, expected some gameplay. Guess just a teaser to get folk to remember the game is still there. 

 

Anyway, lets speculate on location again...

Number plate is oblong, black with silver lettering & a logo (The Solar Crown one). 

Now a place I can think of that rich folk live on (or say to, for tax reasons) that's is an island that doing a  1-1 scale wouldn't be a crazy idea...that also has a number plate that's not too different from it...

Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands.

 

Scenery there is nice, weather is good too. With a bit of artistic licensing it'd polish up well.

Just a stab in the dark from the little info there is. 

 

 

Edit: Just seen elsewhere people pointing out that Singapore also uses a number plate like that! Which would make much more sense for the sense of the rich & casinos. Personally between the two I'd rather Guernsey.

I think for me better theory is that those black Guernsey style plates are actually plate customization option, like you would be able to change your license plate style (Guernsey or UK style plate, French style plate, German style plate etc). Aston Martin DB11 and Range Rover Sport SVR are both LHD (Left Hand Drive), so I think Guernsey is out. Also Guernsey is about 78km2 in it's area, so it would be very similiar to size of FH4 map size. I don't think they would do island that is smaller than Ibiza.

Also here is the size of Forza Horizon 4 map, 71,46 km2. Guernsey is 78km2 (According to Google)

Never saw what side the drivers were on, but as we know games will often just use LHD as if the modules are reused it's easyer, less people will moan if a car is LHD rather than RHD let's be honest! 

 I never knew the sizes of the Forza maps, they've always seemed tiny to me but that's because you can just aim in any direction, hit the throttle and keep going at speed till you hit an immovable object, and the fact cars gain speed stupidly quick. 

But yeah the island would be rather small, even if it had all the Channel Islands in! 

 

In the end I'm just throwing a stab in the dark, as thats all anyone can really do of now! But the placeholder number plate idea is most likly of now, that or it's the one all cars in the SC will wear.

Yo nerds, heads up, we can expect more TDU next week!

 

On Tueesday they're doing another nacon connect and in it they're including TDU, so that's probably the "next chapter" they mentioned

Yes we are expecting to see part 2 of the CGI trailer where the race continues outside the car park (in a docklands environment).  Perhaps a few other scenes such as the casino and island may be interspersed briefly but I'm not expecting much this far out from release.   Hopefully we'll hear more from Alain directly in another interview.

I never saw news of it till the other day! Man I'm behind these days! 🤣

I'm not 100% to think of it, Hong Kong doesn't exactly set me alight as a location. My first thought's is of course of a massive city. Of course, outside the city there is a lot of nice countryside! Size wise, not as 'small' as I thought, area is 1,106Km2, it's just under 2 Ibiza's! 

I don't know what it is, but it just doesn't set me alight. When I think Hawaii I think tropical paradise, when I think Ibiza I think summer holiday & partying, when I think Hong Kong I think...a urban environment and Government unrest. 

 

Still going to keep an eye out for it, but can't see myself rushing to buy it.

There's a rumor of it being just Hong Kong Island, not the entire Hong Kong. Same as there's rumors that there's more than just the Island. 

 

Fact is, nobody knows for sure.

I'm starting to think it will expand beyond the island.  Alain always loved to drip-feed and tease out new content one morsel at a time.

In either case, I'm still concerned at a lack of good cruise routes/roads for a bunch of supercars if it is a faithful 1:1 recreation.  So far I've seen a bunch of narrow bumpy slow-speed roads in the cities, some highways/bridges/tunnels, and a handful of mountain pass roads of varying quality.  But can we we string them together to make some awesome cruise routes without getting bored or lost?  We'll have to wait and see.
