Today we are happy to announce that a new TrackMania environment will soon be integrated into ManiaPlanet: Stadium. This all-time favorite played by millions around the world through TrackMania Nations Forever will be available in ManiaPlanet in early 2013.
Stadium will join the ManiaPlanet family and benefit from all the ManiaPlanet features such as: Title Pack creation, custom gamemodes, 3D object import, ManiaPub, etc. Besides these, TrackMania² Stadium will also benefit from the improved game engine used in TrackMania² Canyon and ShootMania Storm, meaning a better management of light and shadows, among other goodies.
The year 2013 will be very ManiaPlanet, and for more information on TrackMania² Stadium you can check out the game’s website, as well as the announcement trailer:
Summer is over, but we have you sorted with more hot e-sports events in Europe and North America, including a change to win a spot under the warm sun of Las Vegas! Under the spotlight today, two major competitions coming on ShootMania and TrackMania:
The Gamers Assembly finished a month ago and we still have fond memories from the entire weekend. Firstly, we would like to thank the Gamers Assembly staff, gamers and visitors for your help, support and the atmosphere created at the Shootmania Booth.
The Op3N ShootMania tournament was hotly contested! The combination of highly skilled gameplay and audience reaction made for a great show. We congratulate the teams that reached the finals (from first to fourth place) :
- aAa.oldschool (sunscorcher, Winz and Raoul), champions of the Op3N tournament
- allstars (HaRts, MoMaN and Strenx)
- Epsilon TF2 (Mitsy, basH and Stefan)
- Branque (skyyart, l’homme platré and OuTrag3)
A big GG to the aAa.oldschool for imposing their skill during the competition and becoming the first Op3n Shootmania Champions.
A special thanks to the “Grr” for their sportsmanship, even if they missed magic potion (don’t forget the cauldron next time!) Also thanks to ZeratoR for igniting the booth with great energy during games. But beware, we’ll beat you on the next game Glasses-Man!
Is wasn’t only ShootMania at the Gamers Assembly, TrackMania was also present with three tournaments (TrackMania Nations Forever, TrackMania United Forever and TrackMania² Canyon). All three tournaments were very close with great atmosphere. Congratulations YoYo for taking the first place on TMNF, Kaka on TMUF and Waaam on TrackMania² Canyon!
