game release date for PC:
TrackMania 2: Valley is a racing game connected to ManiaPlanet service. It was developed by Ubisoft subsidiary Nadeo. The game develops the mechanics used in TrackMania 2: Canyon and is tightly integrated into that title, however, at the same time this is a separate, standalone module.
In contrast with the previously released TrackMania 2: Stadium, Valley module offers a completely different set of locations, which are unique as compared to what appeared in previous games. The titular Valley consists of muddy routes and wide highways running through lush forests and across green fields. Apart from new tracks, players also get a lot of fresh elements ready to use in the map editor. There are also some new game modes.
TrackMania 2: Valley stays true to the series traditional solutions and arcade driving model. The authors chose high speed and tension of races over realism. Also, a distinctive feature of the series makes a return, i.e. winding roads, which require you to perform many impressive acrobatics. At any route you can either drive solo or against other players in multiplayer mode. A lot of emphasis was put on modding tools and social features. These allow you to create your own routes and share with other fans thanks to ManiaPlanet service.
