Ubisoft has today broadened the horizon for their racing game, announcing that Trackmania is now playable on a variety of platforms. In addition to PC platforms such as Ubisoft Connect, Epic Games Store, Steam, Amazon Luna and Ubisoft+; players can now nab themselves a copy via the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 – and the Xbox Marketplace for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Crucially, both PC and console players can race together thanks to the introduction of cross-play and cross-progression.
Trackmania boasts over 1000 tracks for players to race on, with a new one introduced every day. The game seeks to offer a unique competitive experience, allowing players to vie for the top spots on leaderboards and progress through the ranks to unlock new prestige skins, medals, and trophies. Furthermore, two distinct game modes, Ranked and Royal, offer the opportunity to team up with friends and participate in casual daily competitions. For those seeking a more competitive edge, an official Esports circuit and community-organised events are readily available.
Beyond racing, Trackmania aims to foster a community of creativity, with more than 2000 player-shared car skins available for all to use. Coinciding with the console launch, Ubisoft has introduced a Track Editor specifically designed for console players and are offering hundreds of new blocks dedicated to gameplay and styling. This builds the total block collection to over 3000 pieces. Players can also immerse themselves in creating and customising in-game Clubs, with new collections of pictures inspired by Ubisoft games.
Mirroring its PC counterpart, the console version of Trackmania offers the same levels of Access. These include a free Starter Access, a Standard Access for $14.95 AUD per year, and a Club Access for $44.95 AUD per year or $89.95 AUD for three years.
Ubisoft has structured Trackmania’s access levels to cater to a range of gaming preferences. The free Starter Access offers 25 tracks for solo or multiplayer racing in official campaigns that rotate quarterly. This tier also allows players to earn medals, record scores, and explore tracks created by others through the Arcade Channel. Additionally, players can test their creativity with the track, replay, and skin editors, as well as compete in the weekly Nations League.
For those who opt for the yearly subscription to Standard Access, the game opens up with full access to Trackmania’s track and replay editors and map-review servers. Standard Access also enables participation in daily live competitions and includes curated Track of the Day selections that players can keep indefinitely, along with every official campaign track. A step further, Club Access subscription allows players to create and join clubs, share their creations, organise their own events and more.
