TrackMania 2 closed beta announced

ManiaPlanet network system also detailed.

A closed beta for TrackMania 2: Canyon kicks off in July, publisher Ubisoft has announced.

There's no information yet on how you can gain access, but the beta will launch in tandem with the new ManiaPlanet network system.

It's a connected system that offers a map editor, the players' creations explorer, and ranking and match-making systems. TrackMania 2: Canyon will be the first game to use it, but developer Nadeo's forthcoming ShootMania and QuestMania will be incorporated too.

Closed ShootMania and QuestMania betas are also planned in the next few months.

"ManiaPlanet is about putting players at the center of the gaming experience," explained Ubisoft online director Stephanie Perotti.

"With TrackMania, ShootMania and QuestMania, we're offering approachable, fun and first-rate online titles. More importantly, these games are powered by the players and their limitless imaginations and creativity."

TrackMania 2: Canyon is expected to launch on PC later this year.
