Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown – Gameplay FAQ (Getting Started and Technical Questions)

Frequently Asked Questions

Getting Started

What content will be available during TDUSC Demo?

TDUSC Demo will feature 16 cars from the Daily Driver and Cross Country as well as a selection of 22 Supercars available for Test Drive in the car dealers. Five districts in the South of the Island will remain closed and progression will be limited to Level 15. The Solar Hotel and Clans HeadQuarters will be open as well as 7 car dealers. A total of 27 races will already be available in all kinds of type, together with 25 secondary missions.

What is the Solar Hotel?

The Solar Hotel is the main competition area and also where the players live, like their own HQ. Built by the organisers of the Solar Crown, this enormous tower houses a huge luxury hotel complex. Visible from much of the island, its interior design is a perfect blend of technology and the finest materials. The Solar Hotel was designed to be a flagship building for the ultra-high-end market and one that meets the lofty expectations of its wealthiest clients. Note: access to the most luxurious suites is reserved for the most prestigious clients. These guests can enjoy the Solar Hotel’s exclusive services.

What is the Sharps Clan?

The Sharps consider themselves an elite class and are characterised by a distinct love of sophistication and classic luxury. As traditionalists, they scorn the extravagance of the Streets and their perceived lack of maturity. The Sharps represent this “high society” in an elegant and contemporary style.

What is the Streets Clan?

The Streets do not want to blend in with the crowd and are certainly not shy about proving it. For them, success is synonymous with making an impression and going against the grain. Provocative and sometimes extremely so, they mock the Sharps’ traditional and conservative ways. The Streets are driven by a much more underground and extravagant street culture.

General Presentation

What game is Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown?

Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown is above all about love of cars, especially luxury cars. Cars that signify a certain status but also cars that win races! Your garage will be home to Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Ferrari, Porsche, Range Rover, Koenigsegg, Apollo, Bugatti and many others. However, you’ll need to demonstrate your commitment to the Solar Crown and the clan you represent to gain access to all these exclusive models!

The organisers of the Solar Crown selected Hong Kong, a city with many faces, to host the next competition. As both an urban jungle and natural jungle, Hong Kong is the ideal playground to settle the disputes between the Sharps and the Streets. The modern and technology-leading city of Hong Kong is also one of Asia’s symbols of luxury where the world’s most incredible street racing cars can be found! But Street or Sharp, the city will only remember one name: the winner of the Solar Crown!
