Trials Frontier pops a wheelie, propels self to Android

The Trials series provides both gratification from conquering brutally-difficult obstacle courses and surges of frustration from the dozens of attempts preceding a victory. If that's a mix of emotions you'd care to display in public, Trials Frontier is now available to Android users for the affordable download price of free.

The experience isn't uninhibited though, since attempts on courses burn up a microtransaction-based currency of fuel. Contributing Editor Earnest Cavalli details the limitation in our Frontier installment of Portabliss, though he reminds us that in a case of taking the good with the bad, Frontier "definitely offers more of the former."

TRIALS FRONTIER NOW AVAILABLE ON ANDROID DEVICES

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – May 22, 2014 – Today, Ubisoft announced that Trials Frontier, the free-to-play mobile title from RedLynx and its best-selling and award-winning Trials series, is now available on the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store. Trials Frontier transports players to the distant future where they find themselves the newcomer in a run-down town desperate for a hero.

Trials Frontier, the series' first appearance on mobile devices, has been very well received on iOS with more than 10 million downloads and an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. With today's release on Android devices, the Trials Frontier community continues to flourish.

Players will practice their skills, learning how to race, flip and cruise through tracks as they earn new gear for their bikes and complete missions for the townsfolk in order to prepare for a face-off with the town villain, Butch. As players progress through the game they will unlock new maps, tracks, bikes and fine-tune their racing skills.

Trials Frontier will receive regular post-launch updates that include new bikes, missions and the introduction of infinite multiplayer brawls to keep players competing and racing on the newest bikes. Stay connected with friends through time challenges, leaderboard sharing capabilities and social network integration to prove who has the fastest time.

Players can connect with Trials Fusion, available on both consoles and Windows PC, to gain access to bonus rider gear and see what some of the tracks looked like in their prime.
