Trackmania 2 Lagoon roars out

Ah, a tropical getaway! Sun, sand, surf, and speeding through loop-de-loops into corkscrews at 300mph until you sick up your sangria. That's the fun offered by Trackmania 2 Lagoon [official site], which launched today. The latest in Nadeo's wonderfully silly racing series takes the tropical environment from 2016's Trackmania Turbo and whacks it into the interconnected ecosystem of Trackmania 2, bringing new modes and whatnot…

Trackmania 2 going tropical with Lagoon this month

More splendidly silly timetrial racing is coming with Trackmania 2 Lagoon [official site] on May 23rd, Ubisoft have announced. It'll bring tropical courses to race across in a new solo campaign and a new multiplayer team mode. The taxonomy of Trackmania is endlessly confusing but I believe this is Nadeo rolling the lagoon environment of 2016's Trackmania Turbo into the ManiaPlanet world of Trackmania 2…

Trackmania Turbo Slows, Is Delayed Till Early 2016

Trackmania is a glorious thing. A joyful, sunkissed, loop-the-loop arcade racing game about incrementally learning the impossible geometry of user-made tracks until you're able to hit their boosts, ramps, and dodge their pitfalls in a single continuous run. Trackmania Turbo [official site] was due to be released before Christmas with some new features - the most important of which is that it's very blue and…

Speediest Racer: TrackMania 2: Valley Out Next Week!

I know the TrackMania games are known for being speedy, but this is making a mockery of everything I know about game development, as well as the laws of time and space. It was only last Friday that TrackMania 2: Stadium was released, and now they've announced the release date of TrackMania 2: Valley. It is coming out on July 4th, 2013. The new addition…

Cars Take Off: Trackmania 2 Canyon Out

Trackmania 2 Canyon is available right now as a digital purchase straight from its very own official website. It’s the game with an obscene amount of player-controlled cars racing around thousands upon thousands of physically impossible tracks. The game uses Nadeo’s own ManiaPlanet system for updates and downloads, which is why it’s only available direct from the website. That may change but don’t count on…

Trackmania 2’s “Educational” Trailer

What's educational about it? Well, it teaches you about the game, I suppose. It shows you how there's a bunch of customisation options, and how the game's editor allows you to build elaborate race course for the cars wot go fast. Most of all though, it teaches that Trackmania is basically crazy. And that is why we love it. (It's the bit at 1:35 which…

Trackmania 2 Will Not Contain UbiDRM

We've just had word from the electronic beak of Ubisoft. It says: "You’ll need to register online once when you install the game. You’ll then be able to play without an online connection." So there you have it: Trackmania 2 is free from always-on tyranny! The game is out on the 14th. I am gonna race so fast. Anyone else got any exciting DRM news?…

Trackmania 2 Arrives September 14th!

Nadeo's excitable racing-game sequel, Trackmania 2, will arrive next month, Ubisoft have announced. Pre-ordering types will be able to get their hands on it before then, however, because the beta - which is accessed via pre-ordering - will start on August 17th. Pre-orders cost $24.99 or £19.99. UPDATE: abhishek notes in the comments below that Nadeo have said the game is "unconfirmed" for Steam, and…

Goes Fast: Trackmania 2 Canyon Footage

Our eagle-eyed internet informants have spotted Trackmania 2 footage - actual game-being-played-by-a-dude footage! - and I've posted it below. Might be one of those Soon To Be Zapped typed situations, as we don't seem to have got this from Mr Ubisoft directly. It looks suitably slick, and just about mad enough to be Trackmania. And yes, I used the same screenshot again, wanna fight about…

Squee: First Trackmania 2 Image

Exquisite excitementation! The sequel to my second-favourite ever racing game is starting to give up some secrets, including this image (click for full size). It's not telling a whole lot, other than Trackmania features a big yellow muscle car and a canyon, but we are expecting something to happen after E3 this year, due to comments made by Nadeo's boss person. (You might recall that…

The Year Ahead, Part Three

Once we get past early summer things get a little hazy. We enter a nether-realm of shifting dates and unclear prophecies. By then we'll also have a whole bunch of games I haven't previously mentioned show up in the intervening months, stuff that we didn't have release dates for to place them in our line-up. This final post in our preview attempts to survey them…

Trackmania 2 Revealed Via Wobblecam

Thanks to the folks who forwarded me this link (Blues), it's cheered me right up. French devs Nadeo have announced a true sequel to Trackmania at the Paris Games Festival, and you can see it (shakily) in action below. The video shows off the track editor and a load of shiny, shiny cars in action. It doesn't look like Trackmania 2 will lose anything of…
