The Trackmania Nations Remake combines easy-to-learn, hard-to-master gameplay style with a fresh look and creative direction.

Trackmania is the biggest and most compelling remake of the legendary racing game, TrackMania Nations. Trackmania combines easy-to-learn yet hard-to-master gameplay with a large variety of tracks, regular seasons, live events and customization options.

Royal mode is an exhilarating and fun new 60-player game mode where players can team up with two friends to compete against other teams in a pool of 20 randomized challenging maps including one new map every day. In Royal mode, players must channel their wacky nature to overcome courses filled with animated obstacles and wild water features leading to treacherous twists and turns.

Starting with 20 teams, four teams are eliminated each round until a champion team emerges. Each game will last a maximum of 15 minutes across the five rounds for the best teams.

Ubisoft announced that the Trackmania Grand League 2022 World Cup will take place from July 1 to 3 at the Stade de France near Paris, France, with live audience for the playoffs and Grand Finale on July 3.

A limited number of tickets are still available here.

  • Group Stage: July 1 & 2 – behind closed doors. 
  • Playoffs & Grand Finale: July 3 – open to the public in the Stade de France Auditorium.

Concluding the 2021-2022 season of the Trackmania Grand League (TMGL), the World Cup is a moment of celebration where players and fans come together and enjoy peak Trackmania action as the top 16 players around the world will race for the title and cash prize. 8 players qualified for the event through the TMGL circuit, while the 8 remaining spots were decided through the Open Qualifier early June, accessible to anyone looking to try their chance at one of the most prestigious competitions in the TMGL.

To add to the celebration, the Trackmania Grand League World Cup can count on its main partner, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, the motorsport subsidiary of the world’s leading car manufacturer. As part of this collaboration, Trackmania players can already race with 3 cars, available in the Grand League club, branded to the colors of the World Cup and TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, and enjoy branded content after the event.

“The combination of our passion for competition and the art of pushing beyond limits, whether behind the wheel or with a gamepad controller in hand, will allow us once again to bring together these two worlds of sport and esports throughout the 2022 World Cup” said Omar Benabdallah, Esports Manager at Ubisoft Nadeo.

“Through esports, just as through real races, we want to convey the passion of motorsport and make it accessible to as many people as possible, whether it be physical or virtual”, explained Luca Neyroz, Marketing Director of Toyota France. 

The new Royal mode will allow players to engage in a daily competitive feature called Super Royal, where players will have the opportunity to race amongst the best players and become the Super Royal team champion.

Players can also generate their own Royal party code to create a private server, where they can continue the fun with their friends and communities in personalized matches.

This new upgrade also includes new physics and mapping innovations, like water blocks and plastic blocks, as well as animated and dynamic items, giving more opportunities to build and enjoy incredible tracks.

Also featured is an all-new Ranked Matchmaking mode, where players can link up in teams of three and take on a field of competitors to climb the in-game ranking divisions.

Trackmania is available on the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store, available for free with Starter Access, $9.99 with Standard Access and $29.99 with Club Access.
