We played a lot of games at Gamescom, but sometimes you get an exclusive taste of something you didn’t expect. We were also allowed to work on this for an hour Unlimited Test Drive: Solar Crownthe latest release in the series.
After the introduction in which the manufacturers demonstrated all sorts of things, we were allowed to race for half an hour. It’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into the game, because they recorded different real sounds for each car to make them sound as real as possible. In addition, with each car, you get the opportunity to do standard things that you would expect with a car, but in reality rarely exist in the game. For example, you can use turn signals, turn fog lights on or off, open or close the roof of certain cars and much more.
Weather conditions also affect driving behaviour, meaning each car reacts differently in rain, sun or snow. Traffic during the day is different from that in the evening, making the world a distinctly living entity. Not only that, but since it’s a completely online experience, you’ll also encounter all kinds of other players in the open world. If you don’t encounter them on the street, you can also find them in one of the many centers the game offers. You have to join a clan and then you can participate in all kinds of races to place yourself within this clan and be able to reach higher circles. This also means you have access to more expensive cars, other areas, and more.
You can join two clans, the streets that have a more modern vision of cars, racing and lifestyle, or the shops that are more classic in terms of lifestyle and car preference. Each clan consists of six members that you must defeat to move up in rank. That’s how he tries Unlimited Test Drive: Solar Crown It challenges you to discover everything and level up so that you can get the most beautiful and best cars to use in the races. You can play against other clans in four-on-four races and other ways to challenge each other.
During our gaming session I felt it Unlimited Test Drive: Solar Crown It tries to give its own touch to other similar games such as the crew or Forza Horizon. At first glance, this works reasonably well, but there’s an added level of detail given how well you can operate your car using direction indicators, for example. However, the question remains how long will this game be fun if you’re almost forced to keep playing constantly to get the most out of it. Fortunately, there’s enough content at launch to keep you busy for hours with tons of races, challenges, and other things.
