The latest game in the wonderful Trials series may have launched back in February 2019, but a mysterious Starter Pack has arrived on the Xbox Store. These new in-game items were actually added to Trials Rising back in June 2019 alongside the release of Season 2 – Medieval Motor Mayhem, but now you can purchase them outside of having to spend your Acorns in the game’s shop.
But what is included I hear you ask! Well, two items mainly, and a nice sweetener. First up is the shopping cart, a new bike with its own unique mechanics. This is much more than just a new skin for your bikes, as the shopping cart controls are completely different with a mind of its own; anyone that has ever visited a supermarket can attest to that.
Secondly, there is the Premium Knight Outfit, which was once again only previously available through the games shop. This is a full outfit, containing helmet, torso and bottoms, and makes a suitable clang when paired up with the shopping cart. Then, the sweetener. This Starter Pack also comes with 60 Acorns thrown in, to then purchase yet more in-game items.
Normally, 60 Acorns would set you back £7.19 on their own, but this Starter Pack comes in just 80p more at £7.99. And if you only previously owned the base game for Trials Rising, this is a great time to invest because this week the Expansion Pass is also on sale – also for £7.99 – featuring two pieces of DLC: Sixty-Six and Crash & Sunburn. Purchasing the Expansion pass also grants access to Stuntman Rider and Samurai Item Packs, unavailable for purchase elsewhere.
If you’ve yet to play Trials Rising at all, our review can be found here.
If you are someone who hasn’t played the game yet, we’d like to know: Does this Starter Pack entice you in at all? If you were to pick up the base game, would you include this in your purchase? Or is the price simply too much considering this week the Expansion Pass is on sale for the same price, and that includes over 55 additional tracks for the game? Let us know your thoughts!
Begin your journey to fame and glory with the Trials® Rising Starter Pack! Get instant access the Shopping Cart Fun Bike and experience a hilarious new way to ride through the tracks, and the Premium Knight Outfit for your rider. This also includes 60 Acorns of in-game currency.
