Trackmania: Game info
Trackmania is a racing game series that has been around for more than 13 years now.
Unlike other racers which might feature tracks and cars based on their real-world counterparts, Trackmania is a high-speed ride across creatively shaped-tracks, with loops, jumps and tunnels which make for a more arcade style of gameplay.
There are many modes, from time attack to rounds, team (1v1, 2v2, 5v5 etc) to tram chase and more.
The most recent game is Trackmania Turbo, though in the competitive scene Trackmania 2 Stadium is the go-to title.
While it still has a dedicated following with some players, the competitive side of Trackmania has shrunk in recent years, with top organisations such as Team Dignitas moving away from the scene.
Trackmania is the most popular online PC racing game. It fuels seven different racing environments; hundreds of thousands of tracks and millions of players to compete with. You can download the car you are dreaming of, paint it, drive it through insane tracks made of loopings, ramps and off roads. It is all about you, your driving skills and the track in front of you.
Just to make sure we understand each other: this is pure arcade driving madness.
First and foremost, you simply drive on fun tracks boosting ramps, wallrides, loopings and gigantic jumps.
Then you can make much more out of it: improve your driving skills and become a world champion, achieve world records, build tracks, edit videos and easily share all that with everyone.
More than 15 million players joined, enjoyed... and some loved it to the point of becoming maniacs, trackmaniacs.
