t he big pic­ture: tri­als ris­ing

Mo­tocross mishaps are com­ing back thanks to Tri­als Ris­ing

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - CONTENTS -

Ac­ci­dents hap­pen, but few games en­cour­age the hi­lar­ity of it quite like the Tri­als se­ries, and fi­nally it’s re­turn­ing to Xbox once more thanks to up­com­ing en­try Ris­ing. Get­ting from A to B via a mo­tocross bike has never been this dis­as­trous but fun. It’s a sim­ple enough premise: You have to nav­i­gate a se­ries of ob­sta­cles to reach the end in the fastest time, with each track get­ting more and more com­pli­cated and the risk of dy­ing via ex­plod­ing bar­rels in­creas­ing as you progress. If it all goes wrong and your limbs flop about use­lessly af­ter a col­li­sion with a steel girder, that’s okay, it’s all part of the ex­pe­ri­ence, and is quickly fixed thanks to su­per-fast re­sets that will have you back in the sad­dle in no time. In fact, to make it through a track un­scathed is prac­ti­cally un­heard of—if you haven’t smacked into a bridge or fudged a jump at some point, you de­serve some kind of medal of honor. Pre­vi­ous games have been sim­ple yet ad­dic­tive, and we can’t wait to have more of it in our grubby lit­tle mitts. You’ll be able to fall over re­peat­edly in early 2019.
