Test Drive Unlimited 2 Euro date

Plus: pre-order deals laid out.

Atari has announced the European Test Drive Unlimited 2 launch date as 11th February. That's for all formats: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Pre-order the free-wheeling racing game and you'll get some goodies. Buy from GAME, Amazon, HMV, Play or ASDA and you'll get the Casino downloadable add-on for free. (Please note that the shops' websites won't reflect this until 9am this morning.)

The Casino provides you with a place to level-up and bet and win money. Even items and exclusive cars can be found there: the Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 Quattro and the Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder.

Pre-orders will also get early access to some very fancy cars. At GAME you'll get first dibs on a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Supersport; at Amazon you'll get the Caterham Superlight R500; at ASDA an Audi RS 5 Coupe - I never thought I'd write that; and at HMV a Ferrari 612 Sessanta.

Play, meanwhile, has a Carbon Black model upgrade for the Aston Martin V12 Vantage; Gamestation has a Carbon Black Aston Martin DBS; and various independent retailers have a Cameo Synergy Special Edition.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 is based on a tropical island where rich people live. You'll be one of them, and you'll stuff a garage full of gaudy racing cars and build a house fit for a king on top of it. The big addition for the sequel in this that you can get out of the car and explore the island.

That's it in a nutshell; Oli Welsh offered much more detail earlier this month with his extensive hands-on preview.
