RTX-2013It was hot, humid, and pretty awesome.

 

I recently had the chance to visit Austin, TX in order to hang out with the Achievement Hunter crew in their RTX lounge, as well as show Trials Evolution to both long-time Trials fans, as well as people who may not have previously had a chance to play. Either way, fans both old and new, as well as spectators, had a blast doing face-first human-darts off of their bikes and into the ground, usually not on purpose.

WOTN - Many Tries

 

Approximately 10,000 people packed themselves into the Austin Convention Center between the 5th and 7th of July, which is a massive increase from the roughly 500 attendees they had the first year (which was only in 2011!).

 

Situated right beside Assassin's Creed IV and ShootMania in the Achievement Hunter Lounge were 6 Trials Evolution stations running on the newly redesigned Xbox 360 with Razer Onza controllers. Players couldn't blame the hardware for their crashes... Well, they still blamed the hardware, but that doesn't mean they were correct.

 

For three days players came by the booth to try their luck at Trials, cursing or laughing at their own crashes, and talking loads of smack on their friends. It's always fun to see people enjoying themselves in Trials, and each day of RTX was full of racing, laughter, and even the occasional challenge.

 

There was even a familiar face or two from the community. Thank you to everyone who stopped by, and please enjoy some pictures from the event:

Fusion ArtIt was our biggest stage yet for a Trials game, and we couldn’t be more delighted with positive response from both press and fans alike! At the E3 2013 Ubisoft media briefing, we announced two new games – Trials Fusion and Trials Frontier – with our big surprise trailer. Now that the dust has settled, we’re back with some new details to share with you, particularly about Trials Fusion, which is the first Trials game to not only be multi-console but also next-gen!

 
Now, everything in our announcement trailer (below) is CGI pre-rendered footage, not actual gameplay. We have not yet released any in-game video or screenshots of Trials Fusion just yet – but stay tuned, it will be a treat!

 

 

We also revealed that the game will feature a physics-based freestyle motocross tricks system (FMX), and we really highlighted that in the trailer. But rest assured, we know what makes Trials tick and what the fans want, and the FMX system is not a replacement for the core Trials gameplay, but an enhancement – much like when we added the multiplayer Supercross feature to Trials Evolution.

 

Trials Fusion - New Announce Details

 

Another key feature of the new game is its breathtaking futuristic setting. Our earliest Trials games have been set primarily in darkened warehouses. Later, with Trials Evolution we threw outdoor environments and gorgeous landscapes into the mix. We definitely still have all that with Trials Fusion, but this time around we are going for a more unified look and feel for the game, to put you into a competitive state of mind as you race through this futuristic landscape.

 

Don’t worry though, there will be a ton of environments and terrains to explore, and of course trademark wild finishes will make a return for each track. The same goes with the level editor, which will be bigger and better than ever, as well as many more ways to customize your bike and rider, share your accomplishments with friends, and compete and connect with other gamers – no matter which platform you choose.

 

Trials Fusion - New Announce Details

 

Trials Fusion will also be the biggest, most challenging Trials project we’ve ever undertaken. Our studio has increased dramatically in size over the last year and a half, and for these projects we’re also getting help from a number of Ubisoft studios, particularly Ubisoft Shanghai.

 

So stay tuned! There’s plenty more information to share, and plenty of other exciting features that will be revealed on the road ahead.

 

Ride on, and we’ll see you on the leaderboards!
