Trackmania Adds Two Free Modes

Ubisoft announces the addition of two free game modes to Trackmania, the racing game remake of Trackmania Nations. The game's free Starter Access tier now includes ranked matchmaking along with an all-new Royale mode. Here is the royale decree:
Royal mode is an exhilarating and fun new 60-player game mode where players can team up with two friends to compete against other teams in a pool of 20 randomized challenging maps including one new map every day. In Royal mode, players must channel their wacky nature to overcome courses filled with animated obstacles and wild water features leading to treacherous twists and turns. Starting with 20 teams, four teams are eliminated each round until a champion team emerges. Each game will last a maximum of 15 minutes across the five rounds for the best teams.

The new Royal mode will allow players to engage in a daily competitive feature called Super Royal, where players will have the opportunity to race amongst the best players and become the Super Royal team champion.

Players can also generate their own Royal party code to create a private server, where they can continue the fun with their friends and communities in personalized matches.

This new upgrade also includes new physics and mapping innovations, like water blocks and plastic blocks, as well as animated and dynamic items, giving more opportunities to build and enjoy incredible tracks.
