Probably my favourite thing about Trials Evolution is this: it's a skill that can be learned. It's always possible to get better at Trials. The skill cap is astronomical and becoming really good at this game requires effort. So I'm glad Ubisoft is putting together a world championship for Trials Evolution, because if you're the best in the world at this gosh-durn game, you deserve to be rewarded.
Interestingly, for a 'world' championship, only a select handful of countries are eligible for entry: the US, UK, Germany, France, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Japan and Australia.
Entering the comp is pretty simple — the in-game leaderboards will do most of the work. Players just need to download a new track on Track Central called TWC 1, releasing on September 11 (possibly tomorrow for us here in Australia...) and TWC 2, releasing on September 18. The top six players will advance to the next round.
The final round will take place in Paris at Paris Games Week hosted by Ubisoft. The top four players in both the Xbox and PC brackets will a trip to Paris to take part in the final. The winner will receive an in-game statue of himself in RedLynx's next major Trials release, Trials Fusion, on next-gen consoles. Players will also get the chance to win a high end PC or a PlayStation 4.
