Xbox One version of Trials Fusion gets day-one patch that improves resolution to 900p

Launch-day patch also fixes Track Central and Leaderboard issues across all platforms.

by

Ubisoft's bike-racing platformer Trials Fusion launched today and though it doesn't run in 1080p on Xbox One like it does on the PlayStation 4, gamers will notice a visual improvement when they download its launch-day patch for Microsoft's console. The day-one update for Xbox One improves the game's native resolution from 800p to 900p, Ubisoft announced today.

As was previously announced, both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Trials Fusion run at 60fps.

Trials Fusion is available today across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PS4, while the PC version is coming next week. All versions received a day-one patch that addresses Track Central and Leaderboard issues. The update also fixes a problem where replays were not in sync.

Developed by the Ubisoft-owned studio RedLynx, a digital copy of Trials Fusion is $20, while physical versions that include a DLC pass and bonus unlockable items are available at retailers for $40. For more on Trials Fusion, check out GameSpot's review.

Wow it got a patch to make it still not Next-gen and still second rate to the PS4...how nice.

Great job on your "gaming" machine MS, your vision of the future is sorely lacking in quality which I guess goes hand in hand with the subpar Surface, subpar Windows phones and horribad Windows 8. Now that I think about it, is there product made by MS in the last 3 years that is NOT subpar?


Maybe that's their vision, a future of products worthy of the "made in China" label that's on them.

Around the world electrical appliances are getting power consumption limits, even vacuum cleaners.

They had to make these consoles use less power than last gen. You know, the crumbling environment and stuff....

1080P/60fps with 150 watts is kinda tough

I would play a subpar version of this game before ever installing UPlay on my PC again.

Everybody, leave from the comment section, and enjoy your PS4, Xbox One, WiiU and PC!

I'm just glad that the majority of the games I play on the ps4 are FULLHD because all the tvs in my house are 1080p

What must be so galling to Xbox users is the fact that even thou, this small res difference isnt much. It just points out the disparity between both machines, what will happan in year 3 when designers will get more out of a machnie. Oh and please dont say DX12 will save the day. Couple to that the disastrous launch and no real "must haves" .While the Xbox is not dead. It is heavily wounded and must do something amazing or it will be left behind. 


I only know 2 people in the UK who went from 360 -1 and they are both 13. Everyone else has or is moving to PS4. When I now go round to see my mates kid who has a One, I have to nag a bit to play on Titanfall as he's bored and no longer plays it, if fact one of the 2 kids I know with the 1 is about ready to sell up and get a PS4


Every time I hear someone defending the xbox by being rude or nasty just makes me think of a battered spouse, hitting out at anyone who say they could do better and to leave and only ever say s"you don't know them like I do, you should see them while were alone"

They told use 1080p games LAST gen guess what it didnt happen then, was mostly 720p and most the time it was sub 720p scaled.


Now this gen comes and they say 1080p and still it not 1080p its 900p or 720p scaled yet again. False advertisment we should all sue!, joking aside.


I call BS this what happen when you put damn mobile cpu at 1.6ghz in console. if they actual used ACTUAL desktop CPU with actual power things would be 1080p. Spec on both consoles are great, but the mobile cpu they stuck in there was let down to me.


MY 4+ year PC runs my games  1080p @30 FPS all the time, and good chunk of the games can do 60 fps @ 1080p just fine.



I saw this game for PC it not exactly  graphic power house either and it console cant even get 1080p.

Without the xbox brand trials would not be relevant. Show some respect.

You know I wonder when people are going to start saying a next gen console isn't running 4k K 120 fps ...PATHETIC. lol I mean there are so many stipulations its ridiculous like is  a next gen console only next gen if all its games run 1080p 60fps. Or does is it next gen when 80% of games run 1080 60fps . It surely isn't next gen because its not running the highest possible res and frames. Fact is neither console is next gen so please stop acting like one is gods gift when it comes to graphics and frames

Fk M$ , even this game can't run 1080p on Xbone!

A day one patch to improve the 720p resolution of a game (running on a "next-gen" console which comes equipped with a camera that has approx. 10% of the console's GPU power reserved for it) into 900p??

PATHETIC.....

everyone talking about resolution, what about the order 1886 running at 800p with cinema boxes around it? but but but ps4 is superior hardware.

It can't even handle a 2D-plane sidescroller in 1080p?  Wow...

Its official! XBONE isn't powerful enough! This game has simple graphics and it couldn't be done in 1080. It needed a day one patch just for 900. All the XBOTs are crying like how the Nintendo fanboys use to say it was all about gameplay not graphics. 

The truth is the 360 was very advance for 2005. The XBONE was old before it was even released in 2013. MS isn't what it use to be. The glory days are gone. Just accept it. lol

Just for reference, VHS Tapes had between 230-300 lines of resolution. DVD's had 480 lines. VHS at it's best was 180 lines less than DVD and people swore DVD was superior, that's at 180 lines of resolution and it was a significant difference. Now take DVD at 480 and add another 600 lines for real HD at 1080p. Now imagine what 100 lines or more of lost resolution can make in a video image. It's significant when displayed on a properly calibrated big screen. Display sizes are significantly larger and more detailed than they were in the VHS/DVD era so lost resolution is even more apparent than it use to be.

if the Xbox One can't run a game as simple as Trials Fusion, then there's no hope for the Microsoft console...

being an xbox one guy (ELDiablo2531). I cant agree more. its not just lower res, i notice frame rate stutter as well.... its rather bad and dissapointing. lower res generally I can deal with, but on an arcade game this is unacceptable. I paid for xbox one cause of my family and friends are using it and I loved 360. M$ really effed up plain and simple, I am invested now so the loss of cash to crossover is tuff to do, so I will have to commit. Being a pc builder/ gamer as well as soon as i saw ps4 ddr5 i new xbox had a problem, so much for listening to what I know....

@queupthudere yeah, true trials begun on 2009 with Trials HD on Xbox 360! (Trials 2 was not much of anything)

@TheRealBigRich  I've said this many times in comments, you have to remember that this is about expectations and what people are accustomed to.  Most people don't know much about this stuff, they've had 1080p this and that thrown at them for years.  Their TVs are 1080p, their tablets, their phones, media players, whatever.  Also don't forget that as always these companies boasted like crazy about how amazing the graphics would be on their new consoles.  Remember the 4k speculations?  Did anyone come out and say hey everyone, calm down a little, sorry but 4k ain't gonna happen :).  They themselves bombarded us with marketing about HD and 1080p, even last generation.  Nintendo who constantly talked about how graphics are not important with the Wii are now doing it too, always mentioning how great stuff looks on WiiU in HD and recently calling out specific resolutions and framerates.


Whether it ultimately matters or not, I have no problem seeing them get all this stuff thrown back in their faces now.  They liked to brag about resolution and "HD" and such when it suited them, now they have to take some of their own crap.  I have no sympathy :).

@kahnseal  This article is about Trials on the Xbox.  You bringing in a totally unrelated game on a totally different console really suggests you're butthurt about something.  But while on the subject, you're really confused about the relationship between aspect ratios and resolution.  The Order's, what you call, "800p" is actually of higher resolution than Ryse's 900p.

@jk12324 research.


This game is in 3D setting not 2D. You haven't watched a single video of it.

@xcollector  You know what?  Neither company has put nearly the R&D into these consoles this gen like they did last.  It cost them so much money and especially Sony being in the hole that it's in, didn't want to have to invest all that money again.  It's just so much more cost effective to design a system using existing components than to design something totally new like the Cell processor.  I will agree that Microsoft dropped the ball on their system by putting a bottom of the line GPU in there.  They could have at least put a better GPU in their system like Sony did, but I do believe things will improve over the course of time as far as resolution and graphics in general go.  After all, we all know that devs get used to the hardware and can do all sorts of things to squeeze more out of these systems.  They don't have to worry about designing a game that will run on all manner of hardware like on PC.  I expect great things out of both the PS4 and Xbone as far as both graphics and gameplay goes.

@xcollector  fabboy you have no game to play now on your 4ps so sad for you hahahah

So uh..... forza 5. Better graphics than this, runs at 1080p and 60fps. Care to explain how the supposedly weak hardware (yes it's weaker compared to ps4 but on it's own?) was capable of running a more graphically impressive game at those numbers when compared to this?

@xcollector  Look, another sad little fanboy acting like he can announce something as official.


Do you realise how generic you are?  How un-original and completely thoughtless??  You make yourself look so stupid, but don't worry, you will be looooong forgotten in about 5 minutes.


Way to go, you just messed up the climax of your existence.

@wookiegr

When the pixels per square inch gets really dense (like your head), differences of lines of resolution become less noticeable. 720p vs 1080p is not that huge let alone 900p vs 1080p/ Yes it is a visible difference but not as dramatically as people make it out to be.

@wookiegr  You are so far off with that, it isn't even worth pointing and laughing.

@fede018 It DOES run on Xbox One. They just made 900p to have smooth 60FPS gameplay. Do you care resolution? Build a PC at best!!

@fede018  do you have a xbox 1 ps4 have 1080p but no game how many exclusive do you have 2 or 3 now is all ahhaa so funny

trials hd and evolution were both good. fusion is just ok and didnt trials begin on pc?

adamjd31
adamjd31

yes this is a good comment, and to roll alittle bit on top. 360 and ps3 already did sub 1080p less than 60fps... so for me when my marketed $550 "next gen console" doesnt do better in resolution or fps its a problem....I can play on my pc but defeats the purpose of playing a good gamr on my tv sittin on the couch.

XNEXUS666X

@hystavito @TheRealBigRichBoth consoles are garbage, I don't know how people can accept it, 1080p 60fps should be the absolute minimum for this gen. Fortunately my PC is true next-gen, Watch Dogs on PS4 already looks half as good as PC, that's truly sad for a 6 month old system.

Yes he obviously does some research before spending hundreds of dollars on console.

ps4 using ddr5 ram is pretty cool, not availble in pc market besides grfx cards. as yime goes it will be better and better fpr ps4 users

adamjd31

cool but my forza on xbox one looks marginally better than my forza on 360 sooo wtf is that about and fact still stands that trials on my xbox one still is a stuttering sub 1080p pos. before the flame comments, let me say its the internet and I can complain about my mistake if i want to lol, yes i will cry and yes i am butthurt from m$ big ol winkie gettin me good..

adamjd31
adamjd31

its not smooth 60fps and it is a problem that a side scroll arcade game cant br run at 1080p......a big effing problem... i already have a pc that can play games really well but that isnt the topic or point. ur answer is to pay another $700 for a pc on top of already paying for a console that was advertised as next gen mininum 1080p 60fps? good logic

XNEXUS666X

@wallacom @XNEXUS666X@hystavito@TheRealBigRichYeah apparently consoles are just meant to be retarded PC's that can't even run games as well as PC's... 

My graphics card was $500 ACTUALLY, and it's more than just a little more pixels, it's frame rate, effects, textures, lighting, processing power for AI (performance incl NPC's, loading etc etc). Not to mention the other tasks my PC can do better than consoles, I don't see the purpose of consoles if a PC can do it better, they used to be relevant, but I find them redundant now. I could go on, but if resolution is the issue (which it is here) then consoles have pretty much lost right out of the starting gate.

@XNEXUS666X @hystavito @TheRealBigRich  Consoles where not suppose to be PCs. I have a PC and both consoles, and I enjoy all 3. And your Watch Dogs comment is absurd. How can you justify a $600 Graphics Card just so you can have a little more pixels?
