Focus Home Interactive and Nadeo have announced the April 16 release of TrackMania Nations Forever, a highly anticipated racing sequel to be available free of charge.

TrackMania Nations Forever will offer a new "Forever" version of the Stadium environment, a single-player mode and 65 brand new tracks. The game will also bring together the large TrackMania community, enabling players of the free versions to play online with players from the retail version of TrackMania United on Stadium environment servers.

Owners of the retail version of TrackMania United will also be able to download a United Forever expansion for free, including tracks that have never been seen before, new design blocks and a graphics update for the three historic environments: Desert, Snow and Rally.

TrackMania Nations Forever will be available for download from April 16. Head over to the video player for a glimpse of the game in action.
