All Articles: Trials Fusion
Sports! Sports! Sports! This week’s Xbox Live Game Store update celebrates everyone’s love of sports with two new titles: Trials Fusion and 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.
Trials Fusion brings RedLynx’s “platform-racing” concept to the Xbox One for the first time (though the game is also available on the Xbox 360). A Trials Fusion Season Pass is also available for sale and it will give players access to six downloadable expansions that will be released between now and May 2015. Finally, the real World Cup may be a few months away, but EA’s tie-in game, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, can be purchased on the Xbox 360 now for $59.99.
More details about both games can be found after the break. (more…)
Sony dumped another huge pile of games onto the PlayStation Store yesteday. Let’s start digging through the goodies…
Square Enix has officially launched the PS4 version of their MMO, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. It is available in a standard edition and a Collector’s Edition. And speaking of special editions, Ubisoft has added Trials Fusion to the store and it is also available in two editions on the PS4 (a standard edition and a Deluxe Edition, which includes the Season Pass).
Board games were also big in yesterdays update as Backgammon Blitz is now available for the PS3, PS4, and Vita (sorry, there’s no Cross-Buy option). If you’re looking for more brainteasers, Pure Chess and That Trivia Game were both released for the PS4.
What else… a little over six months after its retail release, Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls is now available to download for the PS3. Meanwhile, EA Sports has made 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil available to download for the PS3 on the same day as its retail release. And Vita owners will surely want to know that Dead Nation has finally come to Sony’s handheld.
We’re barely scratching the surface of this week’s PlayStation Update. More information about all of this week’s releases can be found after the break and a full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Three new retail releases will compete for your gaming dollar this week…
RedLynx’s platform-racing series makes the jump to next-generation consoles with the release of Trials Fusion. The game will be available in a “Deluxe Edition” that includes a Season Pass so players can gain access to future downloadable content for both the PS4 and Xbox One.
Also available next week is 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The actual World Cup is still a few months away, so you’ll have plenty of time to prepare yourself with EA’s quadrennial tie-in game.
Finally this week, Atlus will release Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars for the 3DS and Vita. If the title didn’t tip you off, Conception II features an absolutely insane storyline that includes evil gods, a group of god-fighting cultists, and a whole lot of baby-making.
Yup, definitely a Japanese RPG.
Several big name publishers won’t be in attendance at this year’s PAX East convention, but you definitely shouldn’t count Ubisoft among their number. The French publishing powerhouse will have a massive booth featuring eight different games at this year’s show:
- Watch Dogs – Con-goers will be able to view a before-seen demo of the game as well as participate in an “eye-opening Watch Dogs experience that lets fans see themselves through the lens of a hacker and get a look at how they could potentially be targeted.”
- The Crew – Ubisoft’s upcoming driving game will be playable on the show floor as “players will be able to the own the road in a massive, open-world re-creation of the United States that is brimming with exciting challenges.”
- Trials Fusion – Scheduled for release on April 16, attendees will get their first chance to play the first next-generation game in the Trials series. In addition to the hands-on demo, professional BMX riders will perform stunts in Ubisoft’s in-booth skate park.
- Child of Light – Players will be able to take control of the game’s main character, Aurora, in a new hands-on demo: “Players will use an active turn-based fight system to uncover mythical dragons and other enchanting creatures, as well as explore the gorgeous watercolor-painted 2D environments in a poetic journey inspired by fairy tales.”
Ubisoft also plans to showcase a playable demo for an unannounced downloadable title as well as a trio of free-to-play titles: online shooter Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Phantoms, hack and slash The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, and collectible card game Might & Magic: Duel of Champions.
PAX East 2014 is less than three weeks away and it’ll be held in Boston, Massachusetts from April 11-13.
Trials Fusion will be released on April 16
Ubisoft has just announced that the next entry in the beloved Trials series will be released on April 16.
Trials Fusion will be available to download on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam for $19.99. A $39.99 disc-based retail version, which will include the base game and a Season Pass, will also be made available for the next-generation consoles. The Season Pass will be available to purchase separately for $19.99, giving player access to new tracks, bike parts, rider gear, and other items in six packs that will release between now and April 2015. The packs will be available without the season pass, but without the savings of 30%.
If you’re new to the Trials series, here’s what Ubisoft and developer RedLynx had to say about some of the new features found in Trials Fusion:
Trials Fusion builds on the same maddeningly addictive physics-based gameplay as its predecessors while incorporating brand new features, including the FMX tricks system. Players will be able to create tracks that stretch both their imagination and skill, and put their friends to the ultimate Trials test by sharing online with the bustling Trials community, made possible by the fan-favorite Editor Mode.
You can watch the latest trailer for Trials Fusion above.
RedLynx’s Trials series has been a massive success on current generation consoles, but the developer will be taking their motorcycle stunt show to the next-gen with Trials Fusion. Trials Fusion is in development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. An Xbox 360 edition is also in the works.
Mobile gamers will also be able to get in on the fun with Trials Frontier, which will be available for “smartphones and tablets.”
Both games will be released sometime in 2014. You can check the first trailer (and a few seconds of gameplay for each title) in the E3 2013 trailer above.
