Our XB1 videos of Trackmania Turbo

Our XB1 videos of Trackmania Turbo

TrackMania Turbo was recently released and we have finally found enough time to prepare a few videos of the Xbox One version thanks to the Xbox network. As fast as ever the game is here rendered in 900P to try to achieve a flawless 60 frames per second framerate. Mission accomplished, or almost as a few drops can sometimes occur, especially in very detailed environments.

XB1 - Track 1 2 and 3
XB1 - Track 4 and 6

Even Trackmania is 900p pathetic. It's a great looking game, I even have it for the PS4 but never did I think the X1 couldn't handle this in 1080p@60. Is it the console or the developers, I don't know now. Dirt Rally was 1080p@60 so it seems possible.

Dirt Rally has a dynamic res that goes between 900p to 1080p on xbone according to codemasters.

I know i'm late for the party with Trackmania in general, but i still can't understand if there is some competitive mode (with IA or other players) in addition to the time attacks.
Also, is there split-screen? Could be a pretty fun party-game

In the solo mode you have 200 time-attack tracks on which you battle against ghosts recorded by the developpers.

There's no AI in TM as the maps can be really tricky with big jumps, wall-rides and using anything as a "road", so developing a good AI is quite impossible.

There's local multi-player, either split-screen (up to four) or turn by turn if you have only one controller, there's even a mode with collisions.

There's also online multiplayer, with up to 100 players on a server at the same time (no collision).

You can create tracks, download other player's tracks, use the track generator, play on servers with user-created tracks, ...

Thank you Miguel, I can understand how developing an IA with these "impossible" circuits can be tricky, I didn't think about that actually.
4-player split screen could be the most interesting part of the game, maybe I'll get it once the price goes down.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Activision isn't too much better, with the exception of Blizzard games. Ubisoft is maybe adapting better. (6 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think publishers can miss the plot a bit too. I think EA is stuck between chasing trends and being stuck in sorta old ways. They need to figure out this market. (7 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it would work on consoles too. Elite Dangerous with it's advanced controls were still able to work reasonably well on a gamepad. Giving the game a dynamic campaign built around story elements. (9 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think giving one publisher exclusive rights to the license was probably a mistake. Sorta putting all your eggs in one basket. (9 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth a flight sim background (Lawrence Holland). But i can't imagine disney/ea being interested in doing a game like that (12 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Another kind of SW game i'd love to play is a space-sim kind of game. sorta like a modern take on Tie-Fighter (or the X-Wing series in general). Those were games developed by a team that came from.. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I definitely worry about the focus testing approach they take and the appeal to everyone thing, but I'd also love to hear more from insiders. (18 minutes ago)
