LOS ANGELES — June 11, 2018 — Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft revealed Trials® Rising, the newest iteration of the gripping Trials motorcycle platform series. The game will be released worldwide in February 2019 on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC.
Ubisoft RedLynx, a studio based in Helsinki (Finland), returns with the biggest and most compelling sequel of the franchise to date, combining the classic demanding gameplay, a fresh look, more competition and over-the-top action praised by fans, plus all-new features. The game was developed with Ubisoft Kiev (Ukraine) in collaboration with Ubisoft Odessa (Ukraine).
Set in new epic locations around the world and featuring more than twice as many tracks as ever before, Trials Rising lets riders travel the world and put their skills to the test through various levels of difficulty, beat the competition, grow their fame under the eyes of experienced sponsors and work to become Trials champions. While enjoying the view of the Eiffel Tower or riding along the Great Wall of China, riders won’t be able to resist the thrill of astonishing exploits and fails on their way.
From local backyard competitions to the biggest stadiums on the world stage, each player is the master of their own fate and must compete against other players as fully visualized ghosts or in real-time local and online multiplayer. Getting to the top of the leaderboard isn’t the only path to success: with the new Contracts feature, sponsors reward players as they progress through their career, with new challenges to achieve at every step.
Trials Rising also adds an exciting new Tandem Bike multiplayer mode for players to expand their coordination skills and ride with their friends. Two riders, one bike, looking for the perfect line on an over-the-top, action-packed track: surprises and hilarity to ensue!
Players will also have the freedom to customize their rider and bike gear with endless possibilities. Everybody can share their custom gear with the community and will earn in-game rewards when other players use them. Trials Rising hearkens back to the franchise’s roots and brings back the core gameplay fans know and love. Powered by the community’s feedback, the team crafted an always-on game that guarantees never-ending experiences.
