Once again developed by Redlynx, which Ubisoft acquired in 2011, the follow-up to Trials HD and Trials Evolution features a number of familiar features alongside an eye-popping visual upgrade and an increased array of customisable bikes.

In a new Trials Fusion preview, CVG contributor Nick Cowen says the game "feels robust" and like "the next step in the franchise's evolution".

"Yes, there's a lot players will recognise from past iterations and yes, it is standing on the shoulders of a giant. But Trials: Fusion feels like the next step in the franchise's evolution.

"It feels necessary and immediate. It feels like a game that can leave its predecessors in the dust and if you're one of the many, many people who became slightly addicted to them, you'll know what a recommendation that is."
