The Games with Gold list for August has been unveiled, and finally after roughly three long years of waiting and being frugal (or cheap if you believe certain people) We’re getting our hands on Trials Fusion for $FREE.99!
Trials Fusion is the third installment in the successful Trials franchise. Apparently Developer RedLynx kicked things off with the first game in the series as a browser-based game back in 2000 called, you guessed it, Trials. That’s all well and good, but my first experience with the long established franchise was with Trials HD, releasing all the way back 2009 on the Xbox 360. Since then, they’ve released two more Trials games, that last being Trials Fusion.
If you’ve ever fancied yourself a motocross superstar or a skilled trick technician this is the game for you. Be warned, it’s highly addictive trying to beat your friends in multiplayer or just trying to beat their fastest time your favorite track. That being said, it can also be highly frustrating. I’ve lost more than a few good controllers to Trials HD back in the day, and I’m sure that when Trials Fusion goes free on August 16th, I’ll lose a few more. But, with a name like Trials, tribulation kind of comes with the territory.
It’s been a minute since I’ve played a Trials game, and the last time I did, I went and bought a used motorcycle from a local shop in Dallas called Freedom Powersports
