Test Drive Unlimited 2 Takes A Detour

Atari has announced that Test Drive Unlimited 2 will be delayed until 2011 due to road works..

Rev up your engines and… no, let’s not go there.. FishLabs are going to be releasing Rally Master Pro for the iPad in September which will see the humble game go from small to big res, with a beta version to be introduced at Gamescom.

New F1 2010 Dev Diary Lives the Life

Codemasters would like to show gamers how to  ‘be the driver, live the life’ by releasing a fifth developer diary for F1 2010 that shows how that mantra has been transformed into an innovative career mode that takes players closer to the sport than ever before. “The expectations for the driver playing the game are the same as in real life given your machinery,” said Davidson. “At the end of the day, the teammate that you have is the only direct competition you’ll have through the whole season. There’s a strange balance of having to work together but also this desperate competition. Where it gets a little bit personal is events like qualifying and the race where you’re just out there to beat him, no matter what.” Said former Formula One driver Anthony Davidson, Technical Consultant on F1 2010.

FlatOut Wii Enters the Battle Arena

Team6 has revealed details of a battle arena in FlatOut for the Wii, the latest platform the franchise has landed on. The most obvious gamemode for rewarding, agressive racing behaviour is the old Destruction Derby mode but at Team6, we felt that this agressive ‘violence factor’ was missing in the old destruction derby gamemode from the previous FlatOut: and therefore we thought of new ideas to make this gamemode more fun and violent!
