Paris – 20 June 2013 – Ubisoft and Nadeo have today released the PC racing game TrackMania˛ Stadium. The game is available on the ManiaPlanet platform and downloadable through trackmania.com and via Steam.
TrackMania˛ Stadium is the latest in the successful Trackmania series, a racing game phenomenon with over 12 million registered users.
Stadium benefits from a new single-player campaign, new content creation tools, as well as an overhauled graphics and lighting engine. This engine provides high-quality, scalable visuals, and the new content creation tools offer greater diversity for the TrackMania community.
TrackMania˛ Stadium is the next evolution of the series and a fitting successor to the popular TrackMania Nations Forever. TrackMania Nations Forever gathered over 1 million players in its first few weeks and has grown ever since, reaching over 12 million players by 2013.
"I’m happy to confirm to the TrackMania players, that the Stadium environment is coming to ManiaPlanet as TrackMania˛ Stadium. This is a new start for our most popular and beloved racing environment. As a matter of fact, having it as a part of ManiaPlanet with TM˛ Canyon and the upcoming TM˛ Valley, will enable us at Nadeo and the community to make TM˛ Stadium come alive thanks to new features, content and evolutions along the way." said Nadeo Publishing Managing Director at Ubisoft, Anne Blondel-Jouin.
