Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown was announced in July 2020 as an exotic street racing game set on an open world island "recreated on a 1: 1 scale", which as we said back then implied that it was based on a real world location . . It’s now July 2021 and we have a new trailer that confirms our hypothesis – the action takes place in Hong Kong – and also gives us the September 22 release date.
The trailer, like the teaser we saw last year, is a cinematic showcase of exotic cars, pulsations and lifestyles of the ultra-rich and vaguely sinister, breaking through the open highways, the narrow and dangerous streets.

At this point, however, there is not much more in detail. It’s still unclear exactly how multiplayer will work [Steam lists both an MMO and a single-player game], but both cars and avatars will be customizable, and this will apparently be an important part of the overall experience – as Nacon said, "Social status is everything in the world of TDU."
