Ubisoft has bought Parisian developer Nadeo, known best for the car-jumping and route-planning TrackMania series of games.
TrackMania developer Nadeo has told Eurogamer that the new TM compilation will be in the shops by the end of the year. Nadeo also revealed that a beta is scheduled to start some time around the end of August / start of September so they can try out all the new network features.
The TrackMania United website has revealed details of the new compilation that's set to include all the previously released games and add-ons in the series.
Those joygiving stewards of the brilliant at Nadeo have decided that instead of releasing the old TrackMania to "sale-a-brate" its release on budget, it'd be far cooler to release an enhanced version of the original done up in the TrackMania Sunrise engine. Those guuuuuys. And there's a demo too, which you can grab on their site.
