Flying through the air clinging to a twisted pile of metal, rubber and gasoline is all in a day’s work for those who have come to know the thrill of the Trials racing series. Now all of that high-flying action and mayhem has been crammed onto the mobile screen and, as of today, you can finally play Trials Frontier through the Google Play Store.
Trials Fusion finally launched on consoles last month, giving player the chance to take the latest big screen version of the series for a ride in a future consisting of giant skyscrapers, glittering glass walls and robotic…um…things spread all over the place. In the mobile game, Trials Frontier, players get to race across a completely different vision of the future, one where the player must traverse “a run-down town desperate for a hero,” according to a statement from Ubisoft and RedLynx.
While Trials Frontier launched for iOS a little while back, the Android version of the game needed to spend a bit more time in the oven, finally launching today for Google Play. Android users in the mood for some trick-infused dirt bike racing action might want to give it a gander, as the iOS version has already garnered more than 10 million downloads and an average rating of 4.5 stars.
Despite being a mobile game, Trials Frontier offers a lot of the same features that have made the home console games so popular. There’s even a post-apocalyptic wild west story to accompany the missions, not that you really need a narrative to pull you through all of those insane jumps and crash landings.
“Players will practice their skills, learning how to race, flip and cruise through tracks as they earn new gear for their bikes and complete missions for the townsfolk in order to prepare for a face-off with the town villain, Butch,” reads the official launch announcement. “As players progress through the game, they will unlock new maps, tracks, bikes and fine-tune their racing skills.”
And, just like its console siblings, Trials Frontier will also receive additional post-launch content like new missions, bikes and “infinite multiplayer brawls,” whatever that means. The game also boasts all of the usual trimmings, including challenges and leaderboards that let you see how well you stack up against friends and the rest of the world. There’s also social network integration, so you can boast to your followers about that amazing time you managed to get on that one track after 137 restarts.
Finally, players can connect their copy of Trials Frontier with Trials Fusion to unlock additional goods, like unique riders, as well as get a gander at several of the now familiar tracks before they turned into a desert wasteland.
