It’s time to go in the Valley!

Hello everyone,

You were waiting for it and it’s available. You can now play TrackMania² Valley!TM2 Valley - Available Now v2 - Slide

Welcome to the country-style environment with Valley where you’ll be able to drive in a beautiful European landscape with birds flying near the roads!

With Valley you’ll find a driving-style between arcade and simulation where the speed can be your enemy. Much skill will be needed to be in the highest ranks of the ladder!

Of course Valley comes with many features like:

  • A new rally-style handling

  • A new 65-tracks solo campaign

  • A brand new set of blocks dedicated to this environment and including for the first time in the TrackMania² history dynamic objects like a “bird road block” and the “windmill block”.

You will also have access to many tools like the map editor, a replay editor, the possibility to import 3D objects, and create custom gamemodes for example.

Florent Castelnérac, Nadeo founder and and Managing Director said:

Making a racing game, is going the fastest from point A to point B. But to make a solid one, there are many areas to master, such as 3D engine, multiplayer, physics, UGC, gameplay, sounds, graphics, level design and more.

With Valley, we started five years ago. It was supposed to be the first installment in Trackmania². But our target to get a specific balance between realism and arcade, immersion and fun, was so difficult to achieve that we had to change our mind, take our breath, and make other works. It turned out to be a really efficient move. Today, I hope that the 65 tracks of the solo campaign will demonstrate how well the Nadeo team finally made it.

For me, Valley is the closest to what I dreamed a classic rally arcade racing gaming could be in modern times. A feel of freedom, fear of speed, immersion and fun. And, I really hope you will all enjoy it,”

And to celebrate this completely new environment, TrackMania² Valley will be 10% off until Monday!

So head over to the ManiaPlanet Store to enjoy this offer. Note also that the game is available on Steam and Uplay. Please note that you can redeem your GamesPlanet and Uplay key on Steam.

Have fun and see you on the tracks!
