Trackmania is a name familiar with racing gamers all over the world, fast, smooth, responsive, accurate, competing, perfection. These are words familiar with the Trackmania fanbase, but like all games, it needs to evolve and earlier this year Ubisoft announced Trackmania.
More than just a remake of Trackmania Nations, Trackmania is a new beginning in the franchise, a vision to take the title forward, more extreme, more ideas yet built on everything you know and love about the series. Today Ubisoft announced new racing experience packages, and we’ve detailed those below based on the official information revealed so far.
Based on the official press release, the initial packs outlined are as follows:
Starter Access: Free for players to race solo or multiplayer on quarterly renewed official campaigns, including 25 tracks, allowing players to earn medals and record scores in the regional rankings. Players will be able to enjoy other player’s creations on the Arcade Channel, try various editors (tracks, replays and skins) and map review servers. The weekly Nations League is also available for casual competitions.
Standard Access: In addition to the free content, Standard Access expands the content available with player creations, including the “Track of the Day” selection, and full access to replay, track editors and map review servers. Additionally, players can participate in daily competitions and keep every “Track of the Day” and “Official” campaign track. One year of standard access is available for £8.59.
Club Access: Including the above, Club Access allows players to join their favourite clubs to access exclusive content and activities such as skin customization, special campaigns, online rooms, training tracks and competitions. They can also create their own club to share their creations and organize events. Players can participate in the Open Grand League, organized by Ubisoft Nadeo, and try to qualify for the Trackmania Grand League. One year of the Club Access is available for £25.99 or three years for £49.99. At the end of their access, players keep the tracks offered in the official and “Track of the Day” campaigns.
Trackmania will be available on July 1 for PC via Uplay. Hopefully, conversions to other formats will be announced in due course – a Switch version would work very well, for instance. We’ll keep our ear to the ground for more information and will share a hands-on preview when the opportunity allows.
