The Trackmania franchise turns 20 today, and it’s celebrating with new content, events, and more. The festivities kick off today in Trackmania with the first of three episodes that will revisit the “Original Trilogy” from the first game: its Snow, Desert, and Rally environments. The first episode, Snow, is available now – and in addition to a new 15-track campaign, it transforms the Stadium car into the Snow car, which plays like its 2003 counterpart with modern twists. The episode also introduces a new kind of competitive road surface, wood, and adds 100 new 3D blocks and items for track creators.
The new content is accompanied by a variety of live activities, beginning today at 7PM CEST/10AM PT with a new Track of the Day and Cup of the Day to accompany the Snow campaign. On November 30, Ubisoft News will livestream the Cup of the Day at 6:30PM CEST/9:30AM PT, joined by Trackmania Producer Augustin De Vita and Content Manager Ayrton Lemaire. Ten streamers – bren, Karlberg, Lars, Majijej, SBVille, Spam, TrilluXe, Wingobear, Wirtual and Yannex – will also begin crafting their own tracks, creating a streamers campaign that will also be featured in the Trackmania 20th anniversary competition on December 18, which will be open for public competition. Additionally, the studio held a car-skinning contest in honor of the 20th anniversary, and players can now head over to the in-game Ubisoft Nadeo club to check out the top 10 player-crafted skins, chosen by a jury of community members and Nadeo staff.
Also on the near horizon is the Trackmania World Championship Final Stage, which will feature eight teams of two competitors each, livestreamed from Montpellier, France. The finals begin with two best-of-seven Group Stages with
