Ubisoft Unveils Trials Rising Expansion II – Crash & Sunburn

Ubisoft has unveiled Crash & Sunburn, the second expansion for Trials Rising – which I called “a fantastic return to form for a great franchise”, and it hits PC, PS4, Switch, UPLAY+ and Xbox One on September 10th. The game and expansions will also be available on Google’s Stadia streaming service when it becomes available.
Crash & Sunburn heads south of the equator for 37 new tracks set in South America, Africa, Australia, and even Antarctica. There’s even two new bikes, both of which offer completely new ways to play. The Turtle bike has a rollover ‘shell’ to offer protection, while the Alpaca bike is front-wheel drive. Both changes will mean a complete revamp to how riders approach challenges, and offer up new ways to beat tracks you had issues with in the past.
Trials Rising Crash & Sunburn is available as a standalone purchase or part of the Expansion Pass that also gives you Trials Rising Sixty-Six, the Stuntman Rider Pack and the Samurai Pack.
Here’s the press release:
