Ubisoft takes its popular Trials series free-to-play on mobile
Ubisoft is looking to take its hugely popular Trials stunt bike game and experiment with injecting the free-to-play monetization model into the game.
Trials Frontier was announced for mobile devices back at E3 earlier this year. The game will offer a more casual spin on the hardcore franchise, with a large focus on social features.
As part of Ubisoft's Digital Days event, the company today revealed that the upcoming title will be free-to-play, allowing you to upgrade your bikes by spending real money.
"We want a lot of players to play this game, and people are more likely to give Trials a try if it doesn’t cost them to test it out, RedLynx's managing director Tero Virtala explained. "More players means more competition on the leaderboards, more players able to participate in local and live events, to create and share user-generated content."
There's no release date set for the iOS and Android game as-of-yet.
