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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

Trials And Toribasho: Sumoman

The Trials series is the best place to look for side-scrolling physics-based stunts, but what if a childhood spent listening to Leader of the Pack and watching Easy Rider while hyped up on caffeine has left you with an overwhelming fear of motorbikes? Until now, you'd have been in a pretty pickle but with the upcoming release of Sumoman, you'll be able to enjoy all…
