There was a cinematic trailer for Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown that revealed which city fans of the cult franchise will explore: It’s Hong Kong.
An interview with Amaury Beyris and Alain Jarniou, Game Director and Creative Director at KT Racing, respectively, brought more details to light on some of the title’s features.
The organisers of the Solar Crown selected Hongkong, a city with many faces to host the next competition. As both an urban jungle and nature jungle. Hongkong is the ideal playground to settle the disputes between the Sharpe and the Streets. The modern and technology leading city of Hongkong is also one of Asia’s Symbols of luxury, where the world’s most incredible street racing car can be found! But Street or Sharpe, the city will only remember one name: the winner of the Solar Crown.
Sharps: The Sharps consider themselves an elite class and are characterized 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 the highest society in an elegant and contemporary style.
Streets: 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 Sharp’s traditional and conservative ways. The Streets are driven by a much more underground and extravagant street culture.
