The first piece of DLC content for Trials Fusion, Riders of the Rustlands, will launch July 29 for $4.99, developer RedLynx revealed today, offering new tracks, challenges and Track Editor objects.
Riders of the Rustlands features five new achievements/trophies, 18 new Track Challenges, where each classic Trials track contains three Track Challenges. The 10 new tracks consist of six classic Trials tracks, two new Supercross tracks (local multiplayer), a new skill game called Laws of Motion and FMX track The Gauntlet. Dozens of new Editor Objects are also introduced with a steel pipe set, wooden ramp set and computer mainframes.
Riders of the Rustlands is the first part of the game's $20 six-part season pass, which will be released over the following year up to May 2015. The second content pack Empire of the Sky, slated for release this summer, is set above the world where players can explore floating islands.
The developer plans to take the world of Trials Fusion "into the clouds, under the sea and even deep underground" in future DLC. A new feature called Teams will also be introduced.
"Teams will be huge. Imagine playing Trials for your Teams, against other Teams on tracks and in tournaments and, in a little bit later down the road, online," creative director Antti Ilvessuowrote on the Ubisoft blog. "There are many other free features after those too — things we haven't talked about but are on the roadmap. We are dedicated to the model of continuously expanding and improving the game with new features that will make the game even greater. This is the long-term plan."
Trials Fusion launched April 16 on PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and April 24 on Windows PC. Be sure to read our review and Overview video above for more details.
