Trials Fusion PC release date slips, but the open beta starts tomorrow

Preorder Trials Fusion for PC from Uplay or a "selected digital retailer" to get access to the open beta, but PC owners will have to wait a week longer than Xbox One, PS4, and 360 owners to get the full game.

The PC release for Trials Fusion has slipped from April 16 to April 24, meaning the master race will have to wait an additional week to play RedLynx's latest stuntbike caper.

But it's not all bad! PC owners who preorder the game from Ubisoft's own Uplay or "selected digital retailers" will be able to access a Trials Fusion closed beta from March 21. That's tomorrow!

Ubisoft says the beta will include 14 tracks and 2 skill games at first, with the content on offer changing every week with an update. Leaderboards and challenges will also be included.

Trials Fusion will launch for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 4 on April 16, with the digital download costing $20. A physical version for Xbox One and PS4 will be available at retail for $40.

On top of that, Trials Fusion will include a season pass for the game's six DLC packs. RedLynx plans to release DLC for Trials Fusion up until the end of April 2015.

So which is it, closed or open beta? Because the article says both. Does anyone proofread these?

I wonder if the PC version will again be atrocious.

I was stretching to use Origin for Titanfall, which I actually don't mind all that much (steam sucked at one point too). However, I refuse to use UPlay. No reason other than I'm sick of having to install DRM monitors to play my games. One is enough, 2 is pushing it...3rd to the party gets ignored.

It's like Ubisoft sais "hey, I hear you complain about the lack of discrepancy between digital and physical prices, well here's our answer." No, bad answer, bad answer!

If this game requires UPlay to run, then I will be picking up the console version instead.


Give that shit up and go back to making DRM-free games, Ubisoft.

$20 for the downloadable version and $40 for the physical copy? Paying double the amount for a case is ridiculous.

"But it's not all bad! PC owners who preorder the game from Ubisoft's own Uplay or "selected digital retailers" will be able to access a Trials Fusion closed beta from March 21. That's tomorrow!"

so what is it an open or closed beta? either way I hope the PC version makes use of Nvidia physix for even better crashes

Ubisoft always does this with their PC multiplats. They wait until it is right on the cusp of release, allowing plenty of time to pre-order, then delay the PC version. Their attempt to curb piracy which, like most anti-piracy measures, just negatively affect their legitimate customers.

@LiquidGold  PS3 And Xbox360 need to die because it run games slow and out of date graphics make the games boring when you playing

Doesn't appear that way. Also from this article it says the season pass is included with buying the game... or beta

@Duckynevada ya half price that doesn't seem right at all, I could understand like 5 dollars but not 20!!  it sucks for people like me who have a slow internet, I can only dl about a gig an hour but im not going to get raped that hard for the physical copy

@Duckynevada $20 from the DD will still net them more profit than the $40 for the disk

Couldn't that be said by PC gamers in which the PS4 and XB1 hold back their games from looking even better b/c companies use the consoles as main platforms as well?  It's all relative when you look at it from all angles imo.

@Saidrex @Frostbite24 Trying to get people to buy the games on consoles by delaying the PC version.  Bad tactic, most pirates don't care about waiting.  (SimCity for example, lulz)
