Trials Rising slides onto Xbox and PC
Trials Rising looks punishing.
Trials Rising is an extremely punishing motorcycling game which requires you to carefully navigate lethal courses. The Trials franchise is quite famous among gamers because, in many ways, it's part of popular culture. Completing a difficult course gives you bragging rights, and back in 2004, everyone wanted to play it to test their skills with a controller.
At Gamescom 2018, Ubisoft announced that Trials Rising would launch on Xbox One and other platforms in February. Luckily, that day is upon us. It seems like only Trials Rising: Gold Edition discs are being sold for $40. If you want to get the base game for $25, the only option available right now is to go digital.
Trials Rising is getting good reviews, but some critics feel that the emphasis on bettering yourself by repeating levels is gone. While hardcore fans may not like this approach, it's great for newcomers because it allows everyone to experience new levels. With Trials Fusion, many of my friends stopped playing because they couldn't get enough stars to unlock new levels.
This time around Trials Rising has an expansion pass, so expect a lot of new levels in the coming months. There is a strong focus on the community so hopefully the title will remain popular for years to come.
It's quite difficult
The gold standard for motorcycling games
