Electronic Theatre ImageUbisoft has launched a celebration marking the upcoming tenth anniversary of the popular TrackMania franchise. Ubisoft also shared that TrackMania recently surpassed eighteen million registered players, making it one of the most played eSports racing titles of all time.

With almost ten years’ of eSports expertise now in the rear-view mirror, Nadeo, a Ubisoft studio, has grown TrackMania from a simplistic puzzle videogame running on a few servers to a beautiful, massively-multiplayer videogame running on the powerful Electronic Theatre ImageManiaPlanet gaming system, which lets players organise, create, compete and exchange with others. Along the way, players from more than one hundred countries have joined in the fun, nine hundred and fifty thousand tracks have been played online and TrackMania Nations recorded the series’ highest number of players on the same track: two hundred and fifty six.

Over the years eSports has turned from a niche past time to a hugely popular phenomenon that continues to grow exponentially. Viewership has gone from hundreds to hundreds of thousands, and TrackMania continues to be one of the pillars of this growing activity, alongside titles such as League of Legends.

TrackMania Nations was one of the first titles that presented itself as an eSport,” said Yves Guillemot, CEO and co-founder of Ubisoft. “Ten years later, the games are as relevant and dynamic as ever, and that is aElectronic Theatre Image tribute to the Nadeo team and the passionate, growing community of TrackMania players.”

Nadeo is offering fans a free multiplayer demo of all TrackMania2 titles until 15th December 2013 as part of the tenth anniversary commemoration. Furthermore, the developer is discounting special collectors’ bundles of TrackMania, giving players all three TrackMania2 titles for £15.99 GBP, or all three plus TrackMania United Forever for £22.99. Players can download the demo from maniaplanet.com and Steam, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the TrackMania franchise.
