With its own dedicated server, Nadeo's TrackMania lets players gear up for online racing competitions. Though playable over a LAN for multiplayer action, gamers can log on to Nadeo's server to receive newly created trackbuilding blocks as they are made available. The TrackMania server is designed to promote a player community, where fans can enjoy more intense and exciting tracks, created by other gamers like themselves. When playing TrackMania for the first time, players will have three environments to choose from desert, countryside, and snow each of which comes with its own car and unique driving characteristics. In the beginning, players will have only a few building blocks from the catalog with which to create their race track, but as they solve puzzles, obtain medals, post faster track times, and complete challenges, they earn Copper, which can be used to obtain more building blocks and better race tracks. Eventually, 300 different blocks will become available, enabling the player to create an impressive track incorporating up to 2,000 blocks. - Enter a crazy universe of track building, puzzles, and breakneck racing - Create your own tracks and share the experience with others online - Challenge the puzzle mode to unlock new construction blocks to use in your track creations - Choose from Rally, Alpine and Speed modes - For 1 to 10 players.
