TMU BLASTS FROM THE POLE POSITION IN THE US WITH STEAM!

Post by Focushome » 19 Jun 2007 13:05

Focus Home Interactive has released TrackMania United last week on Steam platform, from the famous American developer Valve®, (Half Life).

The launch of Nadeo’s game on Steam is a true success on this platform, in fact during its week of release TrackMania United has even stolen Steam’s sales charts’ first place to the unbeatable Counter Strike ® for one day. A very rare performance that generated a lot of comments on Steam’s very popular forums.

“Trackmania has captured the attention of both racing and action gamers across Europe and the world,” said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. “The launch of this title not only expands Steam’s collection of racing titles, but also continues in the Steam tradition of introducing innovative titles to our worldwide audience of over 13 million customers and growing.”

This cooperation with Steam has allowed thousands of Americans to join TrackMania’s large community from the first release week and it’s only the beginning, Focus and Valve are currently working closely to promote the game among the American gaming press that gave a very positive feedback after they played the first versions of the game.

TrackMania United has been critically acclaimed across the entire Europe. The major European magazines such as PC Gamer, Edge, PC Zone or Gamestar do not hesitate to place it as one of the best videogame of the year, or even one of the best videogame ever (PC Zone, GamesRadar)!

don't care about the critics and all the complaints about starforce (lite!) This game rocks and everyone should know!
Good job at using the steam platform to boost up the sales, maybe theres some more motivation to work on known bugs :)

We saw a flood of new players that day, mostly from steam. The Air Time server (located in California) had over 20 players on it for most of the day, which is most than double what it normally sees, now if they will be sticking around to play more or not will be seen.
