News Weekly Racing Video Game News: Trial and Error

Posted on

In this week's news round-up, we celebrate the launch of Trials Fusion, RedLynx's latest entry in the notoriously tricky yet chronically addictive bike platform. It wasn't all plain sailing however, as Trials Fusion is the latest multiplatform release to perform better on PS4 than Xbox One – ironic when this is the first time the series has been released outside of a Microsoft platform. 

The other big talking point was Codemasters' new mystery racing game, after a teaser trailer hinted at a new Grid sequel, contrary to people's expectations of DiRT 4 being revealed. Is it Grid 3? Is it a Toca reboot? Or is it Grid 2 remastered with added cockpit camera? All will be revealed this Tuesday.

Elsewhere, our massive preview of The Crew went up, revealing new aspects of the game you may not have read about before, such as vehicle damage, licenced racetracks and the narrative. 

We also had some fun in the sand in BugBear's latest update for Next Car Game, adding some new tracks to the highly entertaining smash 'em up that still hasn't been officially named yet. 

All this and more can be found in the latest news round-up. Links to all articles discussed in the video can also be found below.
