The PC version of Test Drive Unlimited 2 received a free downloadable content pack this weekend. Eden Games plans to release this Exploration DLC for the consoles soon as well.

Also included in the update are a number of bug fixes. For example, cars will never start flying or go invisible. Both of those bugs sound kind of awesome actually but they probably hurt the game's realism a bit (okay, a lot).

The full patch notes are below. Platform-specific changes are noted where appropriate.
