Trials Fusion is also currently set to be published by the Red Lynx parent company Ubisoft (Valiant Hearts: The Great War & Watch Dogs). While the release date is not yet solid, the game is expected to arrive on PC on April 24th of 2014 and is already available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
The development process for Trials Fusion is something that hasn’t been covered greatly by Red Lynx or the gaming media. Trials games run on a unique blend of arcade racing across various platforms via the implementation of a finely tuned Physics based engine that rewards precision and control. There has however been some changes made to the game that initially elicited negative feedback from the massive and devoted Trials fan base.
After coming out of 2013’s E3 event, Red Lynx was met with fan backlash after they announced that the game would now be including tricks into the overall gameplay. This concerned fans who favoured skill based times and records more than tricks and impressive visual shows, in turn the games creative director Antti Ilvessuo came to the defence of his work, “People were worried that we were ruining Trials,”, “But we’re the developer; we know how to make this game. People should rest assured that we know what Trials is. We’re not breaking anything.”
Trials Fusion is also set to run alongside another Trials game on Smartphones called Trials Frontier, while it is unclear if this is simply a companion app or a standalone title the two games are expected to work together. As of March 21st of 2014, Trials Fusion was opened to a period of closed Beta testing prior to it’s launch. Players seeking access to this Beta would gain entry by pre-purchasing the game via GameStop and Amazon amongst other retailers. The Beta was however only available on the PC build of the game.
On April 11th of 2014, it was confirmed that Trials Fusion would run at a resolution of 1080p on the PlayStation 4 and 900p upscaled to 1080p on Xbox One. Both systems will run the game at 60 frames per second.
Players will compete in a variety of challenging races in order to gain the required scores to unlock and open up new stages or entirely new areas.
