What about the other environments?

#1 Posted by Kung_Fu_Viking (708 posts) -

I want to get this. I've had fun playing TrackMania Nations in the past and figured a nicer looking and maybe better(?) version for £19.99 is a pretty good deal. I was wondering if the other environments also going to cost £19.99 or have they not talked about that yet? It seems a bit steep for what is essentially a tile set.

I heard Valley was going to be one, but i honestly cant remember where i heard that. And probably yes on the money bit, considering the other environments aren't going to be out for a while.

"Trackmania 2: Valley" Will come next, im assuming it will be another $20...

i hope they make an environment with the ridge racer handling. being able to corner at full speed whilst spinning in the opposite direction would be sweet

If they throw in some handling changes along with the visual changes then maybe I can justify paying the same amount of money again.

I guess I would expect that the handling model will change slightly with the new maps, just like how the car handles differently in Canyon when you're on a dirt road vs. asphalt.

In previous Trackmania games (United in particular), different environments had remarkably different cars and track building blocks. For example, the Island car was similar to Canyon's car only even faster (but it couldn't drift as well), while the Snow car was slower but could turn on a dime. Each played like a different game with the same underlying engine and track editor. Basically, each environment is much more than a tileset.

I honestly couldn't see spending $20+ on each environment, though. Hopefully they only charge existing Maniaplanet customers ~$10, if anything.

Nadeo has stated that they will be releasing one environment every 3 months over all of maniaplanet

So, one month will be a trackmania 2 environment, 3 months later will be a shootmania environment, 3 months later will be a questmania environment.

So, for Trackmania, there will be a new environment approximately every 9 months.

The goal is to have a total of 15 environments, and they will likely cost $25 each (perhaps less if you already own some maniaplanet content, I'm not sure on how they're going to do it)

Valley was originally supposed to be the first environment for TM2 which shortly after, turned in to canyon.

Valley is still a possibility, definitely not out of the question, but we'll have to wait and see.

The other one in the works is Arena, which by the sounds of it will be similar to the stadium mode, but there aren't any confirmations.
