Yesterday, developer RedLynx released a version 1.04 title update across all editions of Trials Fusion. The patch fixes a few glitches, improves the game's stability and brings back the single-player tournament mode from 2012's Trials Evolution.
The complete change log includes:
- Removed the "FMX speed boost exploit," where riders could gain an unintended speed boost by performing certain freestyle tricks
- Fixed additional issues regarding the PlayStation 4 Season Pass.
- Resolved some issues regarding Uplay connectivity
- Added a number of stability fixes to the track editor
- Several improvements to texture and graphics issues
- A number of fixes and improvements to Track Central
- Some of the best user-made tracks have been spotlighted in Track Central
- Demo added to Xbox One marketplace.
- PC-specific stability improvements and optimizations
- New options for users to tweak the graphic settings (foliage, particles)
- Mouse cursor now disappears when using the gamepad
Wednesday's patch marks Trials Fusion's first significant content update since its mid-April release on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Single-player tournaments, a feature familiar to fans of Trials HD and Trials Evolution, will challenge players to complete a set number of courses in a row. These tournaments recycle existing career mode tracks, though the events themselves are scheduled to rotate every day.
Online multiplayer, which is still being advertised on the back of Trials Fusion's box art, remains absent from the game.
Gamers who paid an extra $20 for Trials Fusion's Season Pass also have nothing to show for it at the moment, aside from the "hazmat suit" rider outfit that was available on release day.
The Season Pass, which promises "six content packs before May 2015," plans to include "unique tracks and editor objects." No further details have been revealed, aside from a "summer" start time.
