After Nadeo released TrackMania in 2003, the game and its extensions grew to become an online phenomenon, attracting more than nine million players who in turn created hundreds of thousands of customized racetracks, thousands of videos, and hundreds of 3D car models. Nadeo has improved upon that foundation with TrackMania2 Canyon, delivering tremendous advances in graphic quality, racing realism and network infrastructure while maintaining the intuitive gameplay, captivating racing modes and familiar community tools that make the TrackMania series unique.
TrackMania² Canyon will be the first game released on ManiaPlanet, a system offering customers an unparalleled networked gaming experience. ManiaPlanet includes the creative instruments already familiar to the TrackMania community – such as the map editor, the players’ creations explorer and the ranking and match-making systems – and extends them into other popular gaming genres, including the first-person shooter and the role-playing game. As part of ManiaPlanet, these tools also will become more interactive and easier to access, resulting in greater game depth and diversity for players.
TrackMania² Stadium marks the comeback of the Stadium environment from TrackMania Nations Forever, still enjoyed by millions around the world. Stadium will soon be integrated into the ManiaPlanet system, enjoying the benefits of its many services as well as an improved graphics engine.
For those who prefer a more bucolic environment, TrackMania² Valley will allow drivers to race through highways as well as muddy roads, bringing a brand new gameplay style to the TrackMania series.
TrackMania² Stadium and Valley will be released in ManiaPlanet in early 2013.
