ManiaPlanet, a story that has just begun

Hi everyone,

It’s been an incredible ride since the beginning of the ShootMania alpha and beta, and today during the Ubisoft Press Conference taking place at GamesCom in Germany, we took a moment to look back at what YOU, the players, have achieved.

But this is just the beginning, and we have great plans for the development of ManiaPlanet, big news that will bring players of TrackMania and ShootMania from all around the world, together in their love of competitive gaming. We’re not quite ready to talk about it yet, but you can already set the date: in November of this year, during the ESWC competition in Paris, Nadeo will hold a press conference to tell you more about it.

In the meantime, we continue to work very hard on the development of ManiaPlanet and on taking over the world of competitive gaming and eSports with ShootMania and TrackMania. Lots of things are happening every week on ManiaPlanet, so watch this space, and don’t hesitate to share the spirit around you !
