    Features

    Career Mode

    Learn the skills it takes to master the tracks that Trials has to offer. Career mode will take you through a series of training programs teaching you how to overcome obstacles. Use these to dominate the various events and track locations provided to earn medals. Success in completing these tracks will earn you more advanced bikes and unlock more events as you progress.

    Tournaments

    Tournaments provide live competitions for in-game prizes. These challenges consist of a series of tracks. As you ride, the individual scores from each track are combined to create your leaderboard score. In-game cash, XP or Acorns will be rewarded to players who complete the tournament based on their leaderboard position.

    Local Multiplayer

    This multiplayer mode allows you to play locally on the same screen with up to four of your friends using multiple controllers.



    Online Multiplayer

    Play games against other players online around the world or with your friends in ranked or private multiplayer matches.

    Ranked mode is split into monthly seasons. At the end of each season players who rank on the multiplayer leaderboard receive in-game rewards based on their leaderboard position. Players must complete 20 matches before getting ranked on a season leaderboard.

    In private multiplayer a host and up to 7 friends can play on up to 8 tracks at a time. Use our custom parameters tool to customize your private matches. Adjust basics like the number of heats or bikes allowed or go nuts and adjust gravity, bike power or a number of other “crazy” parameters!

    DLC ownership is not required to play DLC tracks or UGC using DLC objects in online multiplayer! In ranked mode all players can play any track in the multiplayer rotation regardless of DLC required. In private multiplayer the host can only include tracks using DLC they own but all other players in the lobby can play the tracks without owning the DLC.

    You can also stream online competitions or just watch your friends compete with our spectator tool. In spectator mode a host can invite up to 8 friends and set them loose on up to 8 tracks then sit back and watch the action. Spectator mode has all the same features as private matches with a few additional camera options for the host.

    To see some Trials pro’s battle it out in online multiplayer and get a look at our spectator mode check out the Grand Finals from the Trials Fusion Dreamhack Samsung Open from Dreamhack Tours 2015.

    Customization

    Show off your style by customizing your bike and rider with our collection of unique customization items. In game currency earned through career mode can be used to purchase items for your bike or rider in the Garage. There are also premium items that can be purchased with Acorns. Acorns can be earned through some tournaments and multiplayer seasons and are also purchasable on your platform store for real world currency.



    Leaderboards

    Compete with your friends and players around the world on leaderboards. Each track has a leaderboard as well as an overall global leaderboard for career mode tracks.

    Through the leaderboards you can also watch replays of other player’s runs. This is a great way to figure out tricky obstacles that you are struggling on. Watch some replays of other players and see how they tackle the obstacle but keep in mind really skilled players will make it look easier than it really is.

    Level Editor

    Create your own tracks using the same tools our Redlynx level team uses to create the in-game tracks. Our level editor is a very deep tool that lets you do anything from creating basic Trials mode tracks to coming up with all new game modes that don’t even need to use the bike or rider. Check out some links below for help learning the Trials level editor from basics to the most advanced tools.


    Track Central

    Share your own custom tracks or play custom tracks created by other players! Track Central is split into different feeds that each contain different types of tracks. A good place to start to see the high level of quality possible with our editor is the Uplay Recommended feed. This feed collects some of the best tracks as selected by our developers.

    Custom tracks are shared cross platform so players on PS4, Xbox One & PC can all play the amazing creations from our building community. If you see a track created by “Fusion Community” or “Fusion Shared” that track was created by a player on a different platform

    University Of Trials

    Many players new to the Trials series experience a point in the game when it becomes very difficult to progress. Some players will power through this until they improve enough to move forward. Some might switch to playing other game modes or UGC. Some even stop playing. What if I told you there is another way? A few years ago our good friend Professor FatShady started the University of Trials YouTube channel to help struggling players improve their skills and achieve Trials greatness. He’s got everything from tips for beginners to full breakdowns of how to take on the most difficult obstacles. If you feel like you need some help getting better at Trials FatShady is your man. Follow the University of Trials on YouTube, Twitch & Twitter.

    Track Central

    A big part of Trials is custom tracks built by players like you. Track Central is our hub for track sharing in Trials Fusion. There you can browse through feeds that sort tracks by different criteria or use the search option if you know what you are looking for. If you are new to Track Central the Uplay or Community Recommended fees are a great place to start. These feeds contain tracks hand picked by our developers and players from the community. All Trials Fusion players have access to Track Central regardless of whether or not they have an Xbox Live or Playstation Plus membership. Tracks have a small symbol in the thumbnail if they use DLC

    (DLC ownership is required to play custom tracks that use DLC content.)



    Custom tracks are shared cross platform so players on PS4, Xbox One & PC can all play the amazing creations from our building community. If you a see a track created by “Fusion Community” or “Fusion Shared” that track was created by a player on a different platform.

    With nearly 140,000 custom tracks currently available on Track Central there's no shortage of great Trials content to check out. When you do come across something you really like be sure to give it a thumbs up to let the creator know that you like what they've done.

    Editor

    Included in Trials Fusion are the same tools our own level designers use to create the tracks in the game’s career mode. Our level editor is a very robust tool with a lot of options that range from simple to very complex. How far you take it is up to you. Some creators are content using the basic tools to create great Trials mode tracks while other dive deep into the complex logic tools that allow them to create whole new games within the editor. Fortunately there are many great resources for improving editor skills and our awesome community of builders includes many players who are happy to help others learn the tools.

    Learning The Editor

    The editor as it currently exists was first introduced in Trials Evolution. For that game we created nearly 40 tutorial videos detailing almost every aspect of the editor. There were some small changes between Trials Evolution and Fusion but most of the tools in Fusion are identical to their Evo counterparts. If you have any questions about specific tools in the editor these videos are a great place to start. You can find them all in the Trials Evolution – Editor Tutorials playlist on our YouTube channel.

Follow him on YouTube to have your mind blown.

    Core2tom

    Core2Tom also has a large collection of Editor Tutorials in his Trials Editor Tutorials playlist, currently 28 videos.

Follow him on YouTube & Twitter.
