Play The Division, Steep and Trials Fusion for free this weekend

There's a platter of free stuff going at Ubisoft this weekend. Post-apocalyptic online shooter The Division [official site], winter sports sim Steep [official site] and two-wheeling platformer Trials Fusion [official site] all available to play for diddly squat until 8pm on Sunday (UK time) through Ubisoft's Uplay client. Now, I know some of these games are getting long in the tooth but there are probably some of you out…

Feature: I find it very guilty

Trials Of The Blood Dragon review

Ubisoft surprise announced, then immediately surprise released, a new game last night: Trials Of The Blood Dragon [official site]. Combining Red Lynx’s long-running motorbike stunt platformer with their half-idea standalone Far Cry: Blood Dragon is a bold choice. And having played this towering turd all day, one I can understand their wanting to keep a secret for as long as possible. I’m a little surprised…

Trials Of The Blood Dragon Might Be A Thing?

Eagle-eyed database watchers have spotted traces of an Ubisoft game named Trials of the Blood Dragon listed by the Taiwanese software rating board. The listings have been pulled, but did reveal a logo and single screenshot which seemed to show, yep, a Trials game with the neon lighting of Far Cry 3's expandalone Blood Dragon. That's it. If it's real and happening, I'd expect more…

Ubisoft’s Annual Uplay Spring Sale Now On

My calendar tells me we're now over halfway through April. The Met Office tells me astronomical spring in the northern hemisphere started on March 20. Yet the weatherman told me yesterday that I can expect highs of a whopping nine degrees centigrade here in Glasgow this weekend. I'd swear it was still winter had the annual Uplay Spring Sale not kicked off this week, with…

Ride A Unicorn In Trials Fusion: Awesome Level Mix

One of the more colourful highlights of the Ubisoft E3 press conference, amid all the brown and grey Tom Clancy titles, was a curious video that raised and dashed my hopes several times over before the end. It eventually turned out to be the announcement trailer for an upcoming expansion to Trials Fusion [official site], titled Awesome Level Mix. In which you play a gun-toting…

Trials Fusion Online Multiplayer Finally Rolls Out

Being in a motorbike accident is, I've been told, terrifying and awful, just awful, the pits, ugh, frightful, I really don't think you'd like it. Yet watching a motorbike accident is, I've seen on You've Been Framed, a rib-tickling barrel of laughs. Tempering the horror of the first with the joy of the second, Trials Fusion now has online multiplayer to go with its local…

M-m-m-multibike: Trials Fusion Online Multiplayer Update

Ubisoft has released a bunch of info about multiplayer changes to its bikestravaganza, Trials Fusion. The update promises to add online multiplayer and to up the number of racers from four to eight. Currently there's asynchronous leaderboardy business which has been part of Trials since the first game. There's also a local multiplayer option for four people. I gave it a bash at a preview…

On Your Bike: Trials Fusion Adds Tournaments

Motorbikes are pretty cool, right? I'd love to learn to ride, but two things give me pause: a story from a family friend about scraping scraps his own skin out his bike leathers after an accident, and the terrifying physics of video game motorbikes suggesting that I'd quickly end up there myself, knife in hand. Trials games probably haven't given the most realistic understanding of…

Trials Fusion review

I was ready to love Trials Fusion. Trials Evolution Gold Edition turned out to be the perfect game to play when I didn't have much time or didn't know what to play. It filled in the holes of a busy day or fixed a boring evening. I didn't care that it was only on Uplay, and I didn't suffer any the bugs that bogged it…

Zoom Zoom Splat: Trials Fusion Out In April

Aw, Redlynx and Ubisoft, you really shouldn't have. I know we've had our ups and downs (and loopty loops and explosions) in the past, but now you're releasing Trials Fusion the day before my birthday? You really didn't have to do that. One small quibble, though: you failed to include any mention of Nathan Grayson's Rad Birthday™ or the accompanying Impossibly Sexy Karaoke Partython anywhere in…

Trials Fusion Fuses Bikes, Future Cities And Caligula

Well, Caligula is that is indeed John Hurt on narration duties, and not a Hurtalike doing the whole gravel-voiced 'ooh, I was in Aliens and I, Claudius and The Elephant Man, and most recently I turned up as a possibly evil [REDACTED]' thing. I hope so, I quite like the idea of John Merrick intoning out of my monitor. Hurt, or Hurtalike, is applying his…
