Trackmania Highways?

Post by Boogs » 11 Jul 2007 02:17

A m8 of mine came across this:
http://www.qvsoftware.com.au/products/r ... hedule.asp
(November release)

Trackmania Highways? Possible future expansion or new game?
Although at $50 it'd want to be a whole new game :P

Anyone know anything about this?

November release? Nah, if that was true we'd probably know about it already.

Anyway, interesting info, they probably just didn't make something up... looks like a publisher's website

This site has it too: http://games.reeltime.tv/product_info.p ... mu69jqnsq3
$47 here

Those are the only two sites Google can find where the phrase "Trackmania Highways" occurs. Now tm-forum is the third i guess :P

The French forum doesn't have any mention of it yet.

Edit: Seems like they're both Australian sites. So it's Australian dollars. I don't know how much American dollars that is though :P

edit2: $40. Sounds about right for an expansion price... although previous games have always been cheaper than most other games, but not by this much, it's €30 in non-moonmoney :P
And that's 20 pounds for the British.
And of course this price may be wrong and maybe all the info is wrong and there won't be TM Highways at all. TMH? hmm...

During the betatest there where versions with different environment combinations for the people, explicitly to test the functionality to extend TMU with further environments in the future. So the chance is very high for this (if it has anything to do with our TM), to be an expansion for TMU.

That picture looks like something that could be a windows default wallpaper, with a couple of inserted signs and a car. Nice one

Hmm, perhaps it might be something similar to 'Command & Conquer: The First Decade'
Every TM release in the one pack?
Probably with a bunch of extras: tracks, skins, wallpapers, trailers etc.
