There’s more good news: Trackmania may also be playable on Steam Deck.

When asked by a fan user if you can play Trackmania on Steam Deck, the official Trackmania Twitter account said “it should be compatible” but will “need to go through the review process.”

We hope it will be playable on Steam Deck as Trackmania’s simple, fast-paced and addictive time attack gameplay is perfectly suited for playing on the go.

Trackmania coming to consoles this year

As well as Steam, the Trackmania reboot is also coming to consoles this year including PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. Like the PC release, Trackmania will be free-to-play with the option to upgrade to premium plans.

This gives access to regular events as well as social features allowing players to form clubs, create and share car customisations, enter private rooms, and create new campaigns and competitions.

In addition, Trackmania’s console debut will introduce cross-play and cross-progression across all platforms, including PC. At launch, players can download more than 280,000 custom tracks created by the community since launch.

There’s no release date yet, but the console version is slated for “early 2023” according to Ubisoft.
