Read the full press release below and visit the official website here for more information.

Think you've got what it takes to rule the competition? Go head-to-head-to-head-to-head in intense, local supercross multiplayer, but be sure to make all the right jumps and stick all your landings. Go against the best of the world's best, but be aware that every split-second counts. Whether racing locally against your friends or challenging the top times and scores in the leaderboards, Trials Fusion gives you different ways to take on anyone who dares to attempt stealing your platform-racing crown.

The much-anticipated Trials game for the next-generation will be here on April 16th, 2014 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 and on April 24th, 2014 for the PC. Pre-purchase the standard or deluxe edition of the PC version now and get access into the playable Beta program today. Take on an unlimited array of platform-racing challenges in the unreal world of Trials Fusion!

Trials Frontier Now Available

Ubisoft announced that Trials Frontier, the free-to-play mobile title from RedLynx and its best-selling and award-winning Trials series, is now available only on the App Store. The series’ first appearance on mobile devices, Trials Frontier transports players to the distant future where they find themselves the newcomer in a run-down town desperate for a hero.

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. As players progress through the game they will unlock new maps, tracks, bikes and fine-tune their racing skills.

Trials Frontier will receive regular post-launch updates that include new bikes, missions and the introduction of infinite multiplayer brawls to keep players competing and racing on the newest bikes. Stay connected with friends through time challenges, leaderboard sharing capabilities and social network integration to prove who has the fastest time.

Players can connect with Trials Fusion, coming out April 16 on console and April 24 on Windows PC, to gain access to bonus rider gear and see what some of the tracks looked like in their prime.

After playing it for two days, Jon Robinson from SI Extra Mustard has posted his hands-on impressions of the PS4 version of MLB 14 The Show and claims it is the best next-gen sports game he has ever seen.

Quote:
In terms of the actual gameplay, I was only able to compete head-to-head and against the CPU (online isn’t ready yet), but I have to say, the PS4 version is not only looking better than its PS3 counterpart, it’s playing better as well. Over 200 new fielding animations were added exclusively to the PS4 field, and I saw everything from a ball ricocheting off Matt Cain’s leg only to be barehanded by (a now slimmer-looking) Pablo Sandoval as he gunned the runner out at first, to all new catcher animations showcasing the masked men jumping out from their crouch to pounce on bunts out in front of the plate. Other new animations include helmets flying off sliding runners and the Ichiro slap swing. Says Russell: “We even added lean animations for baserunners so they don’t look so robotic. Everything about the game just looks, feels, and plays more natural.”

Ubisoft is launching The Crew this Autumn and it sounds pretty good, according to this write up from IGN. The creative director stated, "This is an MMORPG that just so happens to feature cars."

Quote:
The Crew’s ability to let you seamlessly zoom out the camera to a view of the entire country, scroll over to any area you want, and zoom back down to find your car right there is incredible. Dozens of major cities are represented in the game, along with a ton more smaller bergs across the country. Ubisoft claims that it takes a few hours to drive from Los Angeles to New York City, and honestly, I believe them. I also really appreciated that despite the cities obviously being truncated, they still maintained the flavor of their real-world counterparts. From the sun-baked neighborhoods of Miami to the barren industrial yards of Detroit to bombing up and down hills in San Francisco, each city had a unique look, feel, and tone.

Check out the full press release below.

Ubisoft Announces the Crew to Launch in Autumn 2014, Releases Worldwide Premiere Gameplay Trailer

Ubisoft announced that The Crew (see the new screenshots here) will be available this fall for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and PC.

The Crew is a revolutionary action-driving game that takes gamers on an exhilarating ride throughout a massive, open-world recreation of the United States, brimming with exciting challenges and populated by other real players.

The Crew’s worldwide premiere gameplay trailer shows four cars, each with different tuning specs and riding in an iconic region of the United States, forming a crew to continue their journey together across the living, breathing open-world.

From April 8th, players will be able to win exclusive rewards through the Golden Plates treasure hunt. Golden Plates are license plates hidden within the game assets (screenshots, trailers, etc.) that have already been revealed or that will be revealed until the launch of The Crew. At launch, submitting the license plate code into the dedicated website hub will unlock in-game rewards, goodies and mystery rewards.

The Crew is now available for pre-order in two different editions for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Limited Edition will grant early access to rides that will prepare gamers for any road—and off-road—conditions. Players who pre-order this edition will receive early access to the BMW Z4 sDrive35is, Mini Cooper S, and Dodge Ram SRT-10 and their respective sets of full custom and performance parts. The Muscle Edition, which can only be pre-ordered at GameStop, will include all early unlock content from the Limited Edition and will also grant exclusive early access to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. Both Editions include 10,000 bonus Crew Credits. Players can pre-order The Crew for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at their local retailers.
