Show full PR text

Today, Ubisoft® announced that players who pre-purchase Trials Fusion™ for Windows PC on the Uplay™ shop, GameStop, Amazon and other select digital retailers will have access to a closed beta, which will begin on March 21. Trials Fusion will be available digitally on PC for $19.99 on April 24.

Trials Fusion is the highly anticipated sequel to the massively popular platform racer Trials Evolution®. Developed by RedLynx in collaboration with Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Kiev, Trials Fusion offers players an unlimited array of obstacles and challenges as they race against the clock – with players from around the globe – to set track records.

The game builds off the same maddeningly addictive physics-based gameplay of its predecessors while incorporating brand-new features, including the FMX tricks system. Create tracks that stretch your imagination and skill, and put your friends to the test by sharing online with the bustling Trials Fusion community, made possible by the fan-favorite Editor mode.

Whether players choose to race alone, against friends or in a worldwide tournament, the competition is endless. Just one run is never enough.
