Ubisoft’s Trackmania is on its way to consoles at last in early 2023, and it will include cross-play and cross-progression with its existing PC rendition.
Announced at Ubisoft Forward 2022, we learned that Trackmania will be coming to Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna early next year. It’ll be day one on Ubisoft+.
It’s still the same Trackmania we’ve been playing on PC for a few years now, shiny cars and all. It’s free to play without microtransactions, but it does have, well, macrotransactions in that there are two major premium purchases that gate large quantities of the game.
Ubisoft Forward: Trackmania Slideshow
We reviewed Trackmania on PC back in 2020, saying that its “mechanically nuanced time trials are as tense and addictive in 2020 as they were in 2006” but that its robust content selection being gated by payments might harm the longevity of the free-to-play game. It has received regular updates since that release, including a matchmaking gameplay mode and a “Royal” mode.
