Trials Fusion flips, snowdives, and crashlands onto shelves in April

Expect a sharp upturn in broken controllers and smashed screens when Trials Fusion arrives on April 16 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Windows PC. The next entry in RedLynx's absorbingly thorny 2D platform-puzzler/stunt biker series, the first Trials ever on a PlayStation platform, is coming to physical shelves on Xbox One and PS4 in North America, as well as digital storefronts on all platforms.

The downloadable version of Trials Fusion is priced $20, while the physical version is priced $40 and includes a season pass in addition to the game. According to Ubisoft UK, the season pass can be purchased separately for the same price as the game there, which is £16. Ubisoft UK adds that the season pass features six DLC packs that will be released across the span of a year, with each one including a variety of tracks, bike components, and rider gear among other bits and bobs.
