Looking forward to what Ubisoft RedLynx will be providing with the upcoming release of Trials Rising? Well, with the full game release fast approaching, Ubisoft have fully detailed their post-launch plan for the game – and it’s looking pretty damn interesting.
Trials Rising will be bursting onto Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC come 26th February 2019, pushing the latest iteration of the gripping Trials motorcycle series to the forefront of gamer’s minds. This will see Ubisoft RedLynx, the Helsinki-based studio, returning with Trials Rising, as they attempt to bring the biggest and most compelling sequel of the franchise to date.
This means they are combining the acclaimed classic gameplay with a fresh new look, a ton more competition and the usual over-the-top action that has previously been highly praised by fans. You can add in to that a load of all-new features with Trials Rising too – ensuring that the latest title in the series may well be the best yet.
But it’s not just launch day that Ubisoft are interested in and today they have revealed details of their post-launch plan, something which has the Trials Rising Expansion Pass front and centre of the action, along with free Events and Seasons that will be found keeping the competition alive.
The Trials Rising Expansion Pass will see players utilising the opportunity to dive in to new exciting locations across the United States and the Southern Hemisphere. This will mean more than 55 new tracks hit the game, with the full contents as follows:
- Trials Rising Sixty Six – Expansion I: Cruise and crash along Route 66 to experience the splendor that is the Land of Opportunity with new tracks and new Contracts. Taking inspiration from one of America’s favourite pastimes, football, this DLC includes items such as a football helmet, shirt, pants and cleats so players can cross the finish line in a sporty fashion.
- Trials Rising Crash & Sunburn – Expansion II: Go below the equator to see the wonders of the Southern Hemisphere. Ride your way through the epic jungle-covered mountains of Peru to the icy region of Antarctica with two new bikes that introduce new gameplay possibilities, challenges and an explorer-themed outfit.
- Stuntman Rider Pack: Defy the laws of gravity and fly through rings of fire with the Stuntman Rider Pack, where players can don the flashy Stuntman costume and ride the engraved retro bike to show everyone that no obstacle is too tough.
- Samurai Item Pack: Slash through the tracks with the spirits of ancient samurai to guide you, with customization items that will allow players to stand out even more on the tracks.
With Trials Rising being all about the competition, new riders will also no doubt be keen to keep an eye out for four Seasons, where riders will have access to new poses, animations and customisation items for bike and rider, as well as seasonal-themed Events like Easter. Weekly Challenges will also be in place, providing in-game objectives that we happily reward you with in-game currency and limited-time prizes. These Challenges will be renewed each and every week to keep things fresh.
Like the sound of that? Well, the digital pre-orders for the Standard (£19.99) and Gold (£29.99) Editions of Trials Rising are now available, with the latter including the base game and the Expansion Pass with two major expansions, two Customisation Packs, fun bikes and more.
Pre-order bonuses are also a thing and should you wish to drop your cash right now, will find that the Jungle Rider Pack, in which players can go wild in a gorilla suit and bike camouflage, and the Wild West Rider Pack, which features a cowboy outfit and a rodeo headlight, will be yours. Each pack includes five items for your rider and one item for your bike.
