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…

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.

Splatto: Trials Of The Blood Dragon’s Demo Will Reward Good Play With Full Game

Combining the stunt riding of Trials with the shoot-o-wackiness of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon in Trials of the Blood Dragon [official site] did not go too well, our John will tell you. But do you believe everything John tells you? He told me that dog eggs are delicious, that ice cream vans jingle to warn they're out of ice cream, and that a new…

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 Announced, Then Released

Obviously the combination of physics-driven motorbike stunter Trials and the neon world of FPS spoof Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon would result in something ludicrous but gosh, Trials of the Blood Dragon still surprised me. Ubisoft officially announced the garish stunt game during their E3 press shindig today, a while after word of it leaked, and... then they launched it. It's out now. You can…

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…

Feature: Vroom with a view

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…

Cycle Of Life: Trials Evolution Evolves A Demo

When one of the finest PC releases of 2013 is a side-scrolling motorbike game - Trials Evolution: Gold Edition - I can understand that some who've not played the Trials games before might be confused by concept. Fortunately there's now no excuse for not having a play of this ridiculously fun game, as at last there's a demo.

Feature: Wheelie Go... (You're Fired - Ed)

Trials Evolution Gold Edition review

Trials Evolution finally came to PC shores a couple of weeks back. Rebranding itself the Gold Edition, and adding in a bunch of features unique to the PC, RedLynx has once more returned to the platform that gave them life, that they so cruelly spurned. Has it been worth the wait? Does it survive Uplay integration? Here's wot I think:

BRRRMMM! Trials Evolution: Gold Launch Trailer

After a lengthy beta on the Halo 720 Doritos machine, Trials Evolution: Gold Edition is finally about to hit the perfect landing in the rutted mud track of the PC. At some hour on this very day we'll be able to see what all the fuss is about, but we kind of already knew. Hey, RedLynx. What gives? We embraced you. We made you what…

Wheelie Good News! Trials Evolution On PC In March

It's obvious that RedLynx stopped loving us. We were there for them, day and night, attending to playing their games. But then oh look who should stride in with their long legs and big, muscley arms but Microsoft, flashing their wallets and giant cars. And Trials really became an Xbox thing, leaving us staring at the space where RedLynx used to be, sobbing. Oh, but…

Non-Trial New Trials Version

And if you can't decode that particularly labyrinthine syntax, "New patch for RPS fave Trials 2". The full details are here, but the two biggest changes directly answer a couple of my reservations. They've reworked the game so it accepts downloadable content, and to show off have added five courses to the full game. Four easy, and one dynamic, the former of which helps with…

I Like Bike! – Trials 2: Second Edition

Okay, we blogged about it yesterday before we had a chance to actually play it. Now, I have and can only concur with the excited people in the comments threads. This is brilliant, and a perfect example of how a modern approach can rejuvenate even the most venerable of arcade games. But before I talk about that, something about my bladder. Now, I tend to…

“This is why they invented helmets”

We like this sort of thing. Redlynx wrote to us to provide review code of their recent bike-stunt-thing, Trials 2: Second Edition. We haven't had a chance to play it yet, but we wanted to bring it to your attention quickly as it looks somewhat neat and are a little annoyed we missed it (As Jim just put it "There are so many videogames!". If…
