The newest addition to the franchise focuses on large, open scale races.
Sure, the vehicles of Trackmania 2: Valley may bump and grind like glorified Micro-Machines, but one can’t deny the sheer fun factor in Nadeo’s next racing iteration. Featuring a European-style landscape, there’s quite a number of jumps and loops to clear, but the scale appears significantly bumped compared to other racers.
For one, there are dozens of cars in a single race, as all vie for supremacy. The game looks great, with varying environments ranging from lush forests to city-scapes running at a smooth frame rate (cars don’t appear to have any damage model though). For now, Trackmania 2: Valley is poised to come out in 2013 for PC.
