ShootMania Storm release date delayed until April

Open beta announced, fires up next month.

ShootMania Storm's release date has been delayed until April 10th, publisher Ubisoft has announced.

The upcoming FPS from TrackMania developer Nadeo had previously been set to launch tomorrow - although we hadn't heard anything about the shooter for several months.

That'll change next month, when Nadeo throws the doors open to its customisable arenas in a new PC beta - due to begin 12th February - lasting until the game's launch. More details on that are on the way.

Stadium returns for TrackMania 2, while ShootMania is given a final release date

Stadium returns for TrackMania 2, while ShootMania is given a final release date

Classic setting coming as part of free-to-play push from Nadeo.

TrackMania's classic Stadium setting is making a return for Nadeo's sequel, and it'll form the free-to-play component of the soon to be expanded TrackMania 2.

Stadium's on course for release at an as yet undisclosed date early next year, and it'll arrive in tandem with Valley, the first expansion proper for TrackMania 2 since it launched with Canyon last September.

Whereas Stadium places an emphasis on the over-the-top elements of TrackMania, Valley's a more down-to-earth approach. It's based on a map that allows for tree-lined roads, tight corners and an experience that's more like that of a traditional racing game - although its taste for ludicrous jumps ensures that it holds on to the TrackMania character.
