Trials Rising

Trials Rising is a very interesting looking title from Ubisoft and comes to PC and console soon - check out the new trailer here.

Developing and extending what has been a long running franchise now, Ubisoft are set to launch their new 'Trails Rising' bike racing game on both console and PC this February 26th - marking the latest addition to the franchise since 2014's Trails Fusion.

Still under the control of Ubisoft and RedLynx, the latest entry into a series that has run since the turn of the millennium features an all new and improved graphical experience, with more features, tracks, challenges and all round action than has ever been seen before in the series.

Due to release at the end of the month, Trials Rising looks likely to be a very popular and welcome return to this solid and enjoyable game franchise.

I was looking for a realistic 2d/3d from the side/side scrolling trial bike game on my phone (also on PC would be awesome) to have going from and to work. Sadly there just isnt any realistic trial bike games. They Always have 500m jumps and crazy stuff. Wish i could put together a team and make one. It would be super fun if you need skill and practice to go over real obstacles like they do in real Life. It just wouldnt be boring if its well made. We had a few long time ago but they are gone now making way for the unrealistic ones.

Granted i also think this series is fun. I just want a more realistic one with modern graphics, sound and all that jazz.

Always loved this series ever since the Flash games miniclip days back in college.

You really need a console controller to play this, though, and I got so frustrated with Xbox controllers losing their centering that I had to give it up.

Can anyone recommend a solid, robust, compatible controller for pc? Preferably Xbox layout, but not the end of the world.

This is out now. Anybody try it? It's a little pricey for me right now so I haven't bought it but they always seem to be quite good games.

I really enjoy these games. Easy to start off with and then they get progressively more difficult but it's so rewarding when you do complete an advanced level.

Just waiting for a deal on this. Seems they went a little crazy with the dlc, lootboxes(?) and in-game currency. Puts me off buying it immediately.
