Ubisoft has announced it will launch a new online community towards the end of the year that will be based solely on user-generated content.
ManiaPlanet was first revealed during the publisher's E3 press conference and unites fans of Nadeo's Mania titles with its accessible toolset and focus on popular genres.
The service will debut with the launch of the TrackMania 2 beta in Q4 2010, which allows users to create their own tracks and cars.
It will then be expanded with the betas of FPS title ShootMania in Q1 2011 and RPG creator QuestMania some time next year.
Ubisoft claims ManiaPlanet is the world's first user-powered PC gaming zone”.
