A post on Ubisoft’s blog explains that it’s “received valuable feedback” from fans, which it takes “very seriously”. This is why it comes as no surprise that Ubisoft today announced that the game would be delayed.
Enhancing the campaign and the game’s interface is on Ubisoft’s list of improvements, as well as refinements to Trackmania Turbo’s multiplayer modes.
Trackmania Turbo was one of the quieter announcements to come out of the multiple high-orbit nuclear strikes that was this year’s E3. But!
What is obvious is that the developers need more time to make the online multiplayer experience more stable, and not have a disaster on their hands if they released it too early.
But wait, there’s more!
A brand new feature will also be introduced offering a “new way” for players to challenge their friends on user-made tracks, although further details have yet to be confirmed.
Finally, we will be able to fine-tune the random generator feature and make the Trackbuilder even more accessible and complete. This is a special mode that we think will extend Trackmania Turbo’s longevity because of how it spurs competition between players. The UI has notoriously been convoluted in past TrackMania games and appeared rough in the looks we’d gotten at Turbo.
