Test Drive Unlimited 2's first premium DLC pack will be free. The price tag for the content has been dropped by Atari in effort to make amends for bugs reported when the game launched. Some of the more serious bugs reported prevented players from logging in and staying connected to the multiplayer. Gamers even reported having corrupt save files and in-game money-exploits. A patch for the PC has been released fixing many complaints. Microsoft and Sony still need to approve the patch for the console versions of Test Drive Unlimited 2. Keep reading for details on the DLC.
