    NEW April 30th

    Ubisoft announced that TrackMania2 Canyon, the sequel to the hit racing game TrackMania, will be available as a closed beta beginning in July. The TrackMania2 Canyon closed beta also will mark the beginning of ManiaPlanet, a new networked gaming system for PCs that provides easy-to-use tools for community-based game creation and participation.

    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.

    “TrackMania always has been about delivering the purest, simplest and most enjoyable form of racing, and combining it with the creativity and talent of our online community,” said Stephanie Perotti, worldwide online director at Ubisoft. “With TrackMania2 Canyon, we’re giving players a more modern, realistic and visually stunning racing experience that they can build upon and personalize in ways that simply aren’t possible with other racing games.”

    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.

    TrackMania Nations is free if you wish to check it out, they then brought out TrackMania United, which has alot of maps, during the day & night and different game modes.

    This one should be a mix of both while the gameplay is still true to it's successful sisters :)

    ^^ This, the gameplay in TM Nations is fantastic, I really hope they don't ruin it for "realism" which so many game companies are doing.

    Will you buy Trackmania 2?

    For me it's a yes! I have really got into the current Trackmania game, and can't wait for the new one. Hopefully there's a demo so I can see if it's anything like the current one, and if it is I will buy it!!

    What about you all?

    I can't see them grasping too hard at realism Ross. I don't think that's really their market place tbh. By doing so I think they'll only reduce their potential market, bot increase it.

    Yes, i have every single copy of TrackMania & so does my dad (he's number 7 in the UK) in the top 2000 for the world (yes he's an addict) !

    If the game has the fun factor & more interesting modes i'll be interested in this :)

    it isn't Nadeo's Intention to make this game realistic, they that their market is more on the fun side which is what made TrackMania so big with the extra bonus of the massive modding which is allowed within the game.

    They may aim for a more realistic Look but as far as handling goes i highly doubt they will touch it much.
