Feature: Every Stadia game coming at launch and beyond

Every Google Stadia game confirmed at E3 2019

It's been just over a week since Google announced their big launch line-up of Stadia games, but with E3 2019 now drawing to a close that list has now become ever so slightly longer, with new tiles such as Ubisoft's Watch Dogs Legion, Square Enix's Marvel's Avengers and more joining the ranks. To help keep track of them all, here's a list of every Google…

Feature: The real trial was the squirrels we made along the way

The Joy Of exploring and dying in Trials Rising

Even as a kid, I always had a fascination with death. It’s manifested in a number of different ways over the years. From learning various mythologies to get a grasp on their take on the afterlife, to reading mystery novels that taught me hundreds of impractical ways to nearly get away with murder, most of my hobbies involved death in some form. So, it's not…

Get your kicks on Route 66 in Trials Rising’s first expansion

If you ever plan to motor west, don't just take the highway - do a triple flip over the highway while on fire, that's the best. Trials Rising hit Route 66 in its first expansion, released today, with two dozen new tracks across the iconic running from Chicago to Los Angeles. Pass through--and over--big cities, one-stoplight towns, ghost towns, the Grand Canyon, Santa Monica Pier,…

Trials Rising crashes spectacularly into stores

The Trials games have always been about celebrating failure as much as victory, which is why almost every level in Trials Rising (out today) involves some manner of comically violent crash. It's okay to explode, or fall off a cliff, or be squashed by a falling cartoon piano in pursuit of glory - it's all part of the learning experience. On that note, Trials Rising might…

Trials Rising rides into a free open beta weekend today

Trials Rising launches next Tuesday, February 26th, but anyone interested can take it for a free spin right now - Ubisoft are running an open beta running until just before launch. The latest in Redlynx's long-running series of twitchy, technical platformers disguised as bike-racing games, this one feels a little bit more competitive than the sci-fi themed Trials Fusion. Still, under the hood it's the…

Trials Rising crashes into open beta the weekend before launch

Bone-pulverising bike crash 'em up Trials Rising will be free to try next weekend, from Thursday, February 21st to Sunday, February 25th, leading directly into its launch. Presumably to get some new blood on board (if you like past Trials games, this one seems similar), Ubisoft are inviting the great un-mangled public to give their motorcycle platformer a try. Bring a friend, too, for the…

Bone-crushing platformer Trials Rising launches February with a closed beta in September

I've been a fan of Redlynx's Trials series since it was a browser game, and I remain resolutely rubbish at them. Devious precision platformers cunningly disguised as motorsport, the next game in the series - Trials Rising - looks to keep up the facade. Rising is due for release on February 12th next year but players with a taste for pain and the ability to stomach…

Feature: Lean out

Trials Rising’s tandem bike is a thing of ragdoll splendour

Trials Rising may be conforming to the series’ usual style, as well as the law of videogame subtitles (Trials Origins and Trials Legends have yet to be announced) but it is adding one wonderful new feature: tandem motorbike muckabouts. In this local two-player mode, each player controls half the throttle, and each makes up half the weight on the bike. Like any Trials game, you…

Feature: The best of show

The best games of E3 2018, from cyberpunks to twisters

During this year’s E3, I saw the largest screen I’d ever witnessed, folded around the corner of a building like a giant piece of glowing paper. It told me to buy Nike. LA is already the neon futuretown of California, never mind Night City. But I didn’t just see ads for shoes at the LA convention centre, I saw a lot of games too. From…

Feature: Excluding Just Dance, sadly

Every PC game at Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference

Ubisoft's conference included everything we expected, from a closer look at Beyond Good & Evil 2, to confirmation of the leaked Assassin's Creed Odyssey, to the now traditional (and delightful) Just Dance dancy party. If you don't have time to watch the conference in its entirety however, here is a showcase of the trailers that were shown and links to the associated news from Ubisoft.

Trials Rising is backflipping out in February 2019

A new dirtbike crashing simulator has been announced by the makers of the Trials series. Trials Rising will be out in February next year, says creative director of Redlynx, Antti Ilvessuo, who arrived at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference riding a motorcycle and wearing an Evil Kineval suit, a costume only bettered by the dancing Panda bandmaster from earlier in the show. Anyway, new Trials.
