Get back on your bike for a trip around the world
If you’ve played any of the previous Trials games then, yes, you already know what to expect. Trials Rising is, like its predecessors, a game of side-scrolling bike parkour. Your rider must cross improbable tracks full of jumps, loops, exploding barrels and other potentially fatal hazards.
You’ll shift your weight forwards or backwards in order to carefully navigate your way through intricate sequences, or mash the accelerator and hope for the best as you go flying off the end of a massive ramp. You can also respawn, which is handy, because – if what I played at E3 is any indication – you will fall over a lot.

Trials of the Blood Dragon, maybe that’s for the best.
