Trials is back! At Ubisoft’s E3 2018 conference, RedLynx announced Trials Rising, the first game in the stunt bike series since 2016’s Trials of the Blood Dragon and the first main game in the series since Trials Fusion released back in 2014.
Releasing PC, PS4, Xbox One, and, for the first time in the series, Nintendo Switch, in February 2019, Trials Rising looks like it will take the series back to its roots after the series veered in a more futuristic direction with Trials Fusion and Trials of the Blood Dragon.
Ubisoft promises Trials Rising will have “more tracks than ever before” taking players on a world tour “from the Eiffel Tower to the Great Wall of China”, with courses set in canyons, cities and forests among other locations. Multiplayer is returning, and there will be a Tandem Bike mode, with two players “each contributing fifty percent of the power and balance” ride together on one bike.
Ubisoft has collaborated with Trials fans over the past two years during development including members of the YouTube channel the University of Trials and over 20 community members to help create tutorials and in-game content.
A Trials Rising closed beta will launch before the game’s release in February 2019. Players can register interest in the beta on the official Trials website.
