We would like to share with you an important upcoming change regarding the Trackmania offer.
While the console release has surpassed our highest expectations in terms of both amount of players and playing time, we need to adapt the quantity of content given for free with the Starter Access, to better match the way the game is played. We also have to be realistic and compare the situation with the efforts made by the studio.
As a result, we have decided that going forward, Trackmania Starter Access will give access to 10 free tracks at each new season.
Starter Access will continue to provide free access to Royal & Ranked modes (including the full tracks) and to the 10 first campaign tracks in solo and live menus. Starter Access players will also retain access to the Arcade channel, which allows them to explore and enjoy the finest creations crafted by fellow players. This will be applicable with the next Winter 2024 update.
Be sure we understand that many of you have become accustomed to playing the full campaign for free and we would have preferred to keep it that way. This adjustment is being made to ensure that we can keep on providing Starter Access users with various free content. Our primary goal is to keep Trackmania live as long as possible, and have it enjoyed by a maximum player from around the world thanks to the right balance for players who play for free and others who are making it possible for two decades.
We will also streamline the Trackmania offers by merging the content of both Standard and Club accesses into a single CLUB ACCESS offer, for an annual cost of 19.99€/$19.99. Players currently on Standard or Club accesses will maintain their status until their access expires. This will also be applicable with the next Winter 2024 update.
Finally, to better accommodate real-life constraints, we’re targeting a new release date for the Winter Campaign 2024. Feel free to note in your calendar that the new date is set for January 9th.
Meanwhile, the Trackmania 20th anniversary is approaching in late November. We’re looking forward to having you join us for this incredible milestone!
Thank you for your understanding and continued support for 20 years.
Ubisoft Nadeo Team.
