Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown Reveals Its Hong Kong Setting and a 2022 Release Date


Last year, the new open-world racer Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown was announced, and today during the latest Nacon Connect presentation, we got a new cinematic teaser for the game that revealed where our new driving playground is located -- Hong Kong! A rather interesting choice given the recent political tensions there, although it should make for an excellent racing locale. This was revealed via a new stylish extended cinematic trailer, which you can check out below.

When you think Hong Kong, you typically think of neon-lit tight-knit urban streets, but the Test Drive devs at KT Racing are promising a full 1:1 recreation of Hong Kong, including the surrounding area, which will provide plenty of off-road racing opportunities. The game also includes online MMO elements as players will be able to join one of two factions -- the Streets and Sharps -- which you'll be helping advance by completing races and missions.
