Back on the radar you go
At some point during the past several months, TrackMania Turbo slipped off my radar. Which is a shame, because it looks super good. You can air-drop from a helicopter into a race and drive upside down on magnetic rollercoaster tracks. Uh, yeah, I’m on board with that.
The arcade-style racer was supposed to release last year, but it was delayed for another round of polish. It is now targeting March 22, 2016 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
This installment has 200 pre-built tracks spanning four themed environments: Rollercoaster Lagoon (which has been the focal point of the trailers), International Stadium, Canyon Grand Drift, and Valley Down & Dirty. You can also design your own devious tracks with the editor or, if you’re feeling so bold, have the system spit out some procedurally generated ones.
This is going to be just wild in virtual reality (Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR).
