Eden Games head David Nadal has said that when it comes to Test Drive Unlimited, fans want depth – not just “graphics”.

Speaking in the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine, Nadal said that Test Drive Unlimited 2 has an updated physics system and the game itself is on a larger-scale that the previous iteration.

Also, the graphics are not much different than the last outing, apparently.

“We’re blending technology that’s closer to MMO engines than most triple-A games,” he revealed, “and the physics in the first one were effectively a sequel to those of the V-Rally games, so we decided to rewrite them from the ground up.

“Even if you have the experience, that’s not an easy route to take. “Even the night and day cycle has meant reworking the entire engine”.

OXM has a very large spread on the game in the issue, and states in it that Unlimited 2’s draw distance is “practically infinite”.

The preview also estimated that it would take you around 20-minutes to drive over the game’s version of Ibiza in the fastest car.

TDU2 was announced in March for a release on PC, PS3 and 360.
