Ships Ahoy - TrackMania2: Valley

Ubisoft announces the release of TrackMania2: Valley, saying the next installment in Nadeo's racing series is now available on ManiaPlanet and Steam. The game offers full Steam Workshop support, as do all Mania games as of today, allowing players to create and share new content, and there's an accompanying new ManiaPlanet update available as well (thanks Frans). Here's word on the release, including the explanation of how what was intended as the first TrackMania2 release ended up being the third:

Bringing added realism, Valley is a new take on the classic arcade rally racing genre and marks a new checkpoint in the history of racing games. As with all TrackMania˛ games, Valley comes with a solo campaign, deep multiplayer experience and a world of possibilities in user-generated content thanks to a feature-packed track editor and the flexibility of the ManiaPlanet system.

“ 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 Trackmania˛. 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.
