Ubisoft have announced that there’ll be an open beta for their upcoming arcade racer Trackmania Turbo starting this Friday on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. You can check out the trailer for the beta below:

TrackMania Turbo is racing onto new-gen consoles for the very first time, and gamers are invited to play in an immersive arcade racing universe featuring next-gen graphics and a brand new art direction that incorporates elements of racing culture and references to 90s arcade gaming.

TrackMania Turbo features “easy to learn, hard to master” gameplay. Players’ skills are challenged in 200 head-spinning tracks divided into four environments, each one with its own gameplay style. Using the Trackbuilder tool, players are empowered to design their own outlandish tracks and share them. They can also add more variety to their experience by generating random tracks with ease. Finally, players can also be joined by their friends either in local or online multiplayer, with dozens of game modes on offer. With the huge variety of options available in TrackMania Turbo, players can enjoy a highly replayable experience.

To participate in the TrackMania Turbo Open Beta, players can connect to their console’s digital store to download it, starting March 18 at 1pm UK time.”

I’ve been looking forward to playing Trackmania Turbo so I’ll be definitely trying out the beta this Friday. If the gameplay is anywhere near as manic as it looks in the trailers I think I’m going to have a good time with the game…
