Trials Fusion getting multiplayer in 2015
New free update that introduces Teams, online play coming next year
Ubisoft has today released a free update that introduces Teams in Trials Fusion, and announced plans to bring multiplayer to the game in 2015.
With this week's patch, players can now form Teams to compete against rivals and work their way up the Teams leaderboard by boosting their Team score. Teams can have up to 50 members and are represented by a name and emblem. Each Team hosts its own bulletin board where teammates can communicate.
Online Multiplayer, coming as a free update in early 2015, will allow four players per race on the Xbox 360 and up to eight players on the other platforms.
Three Online Multiplayer modes will be available. In Online X-Supercross, up to eight players race on three random tracks, after which a winner is announced based on an accumulative best score. With Private Game, eight players select which tracks to race and customize race parameters such as gravity of the track, modifying bike speed, or inverting the bike’s controls. Finally, Private Game with Spectator lets players looking to watch online multiplayer select the tracks and parameters for the race and invite eight other players to ride so they can kick-back and watch the race. These matches can also be broadcast using streaming platforms.
Developed by RedLynx in collaboration with Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Kiev, Trials Fusion has sold over one million copies. It is available for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PS4.
