The Trials series are physics based puzzle games where you are tasked with driving through motorcycle courses, using momentum to pull off insane stunts and reach the finish line as quickly as possible. They are well known for their death-defying set pieces and insane difficulty level. The last full release in the series was Trials Fusion, released in 2014, although a few spin-offs have come out since then. But another entry in the series is coming in 2019: Trials Rising. Ubisoft showed off a trailer for it near the beginning of their E3 presentation, and it looks pretty slick. Check it out:
It doesn’t really look like it’s bringing anything new to the series, but that’s alright as long as the quality of the tracks is still the level we expect and there are a few new wrinkles, that shouldn’t be a huge issue. I do like the look of the multi-bike beginning of the trailer – somewhat like a new wave Excitebike.
Trials Rising is scheduled to release in February 2019 on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. There are also sign ups for a closed beta coming soon.
