    I'll be getting it on pc. I think there's cross platform leaderboards now...

    Pre-ordered. Even though I kept playing less and less with each iteration.

    I should at least try it on Switch. Not sure if I'll pick it up though, I didn't play much of Fusion either.

    @andytheadequate

    Yeah, wondering if you can add people as friends via the ubisoft thing & they'll show up on the leaderboards?

    I'm getting it, though on PS4.

    Add me Mr-Ollock

    (I was on 360 EG leaderboards)

    I might dodge the beta, but I have it pre-ordered. Had to get the season pass bundle as that's the only option for the physical release on Switch. Having seen some 'experts' pull off the most challenging tricks on Switch (And crawl up some very steep ramps), I'm no longer afraid on the lack of analog triggers.

    It could all still fall apart in my hands though. I only managed to compete one extreme track in Fusion. Found it harder than Evolution.

    I would absolutely love this on Switch but I'm not convinced by the right stick for throttle control.

    I'll be definitely be trying the beta though.

    Come now Mr. Lungs, that's not the attitude to take - get back in the saddle ;)

    Feeling under the weather today, so downloaded the beta on Switch and gave it a spin. First impressions...

    The 30fps is very noticeable. It doesn't ruin the experience by any means, or make it anymore difficult to play, but it is painfully obviously the entire time. It's not a locked 30fps, either. I've noticed a couple of minor dips.

    The analog sticks on the Joy Con actually make it easier to bunny hop. I guess that's because they're smaller?

    There's way to many loot crates. Every 5 minutes a loot crate. They're really intrusive.

    The map makes for a fiddly level select screen. I much preferred the ordered lists in Fusion. This feels more like the mobile game. It's going to grow increasingly more confusing as time goes on.

    The tracks themselves are great. I got as far as the flaming man mini game, which is both familiar and fun.

    I think I'll keep my pre-order, but I'm feeling ever so slightly less confident of a great game, having played the beta. I'll probably jump back into it this evening to get some more golds.

    Runs great on pc and it very nice looking for a trails game. Some of the tracks are completely bonkers

    Fuck the loot crates though. Doesn't matter to me to much as I wouldn't buy them anyway as I don't care what my rider looks like.

    Don't forget you can use ubi points to get 20% off as well if you have any sitting around so it's 16 or so.

    Yeah there's a lot of flimflam around (winning crates /messages popping up etc.) & I'm not a huge fan of the world map - it worked fine on Trials Frontier as you were using a touchscreen; seems clunky here.

    But fundamental game is still awesome, basically it seems like a fancier Trials Evolution - no bad thing😀

    Thought the plane level was great.

    That level wasn't half bad. I wasn't a big fan of the random gravity changes in Fusion, but it's done well on that level.

    My favourite level is the flaming man one, simply because it's the only one I've yet to gold. I've spent a good hour trying, too.

    Hah I happily took my bronze and moved along, One is not very good at trials but one does enjoy it. I couldn't win the third stage of the stadium tournament either.

    1st track I see booped in 2nd place for the region... Top of my friends list so obviously I need to flesh out my EG friends list a bit.

    Seems alright it's got that one more go thing going on... 30 minutes later I'll just try again!

    How do the leaderboards work on this? Is it based off your uplay account?

    Yeah. Your uplay account. Not sure how to add friends via that.

    I've hit a brick wall on the beta. That 2nd stage in the 3 stage knockout competition. I can't do it. Must have had about 20 attempts, but can't keep pace with the AI. Did them all individually on the first attempt, but as a trio I'm stuck. I guess I need to finish it in order to unlock the extreme track. I have nothing else to do. I've got gold on everything.

    The Switch doesn't hold its 30fps nearly as well as I hoped. Shame. It's still fun enough, but at this point, I'd rather wait for a sale.

    Besides, I'm not really feeling all the loot boxes and new menus and stuff.

    @DangerousDave_87

    Same here however I actually got to the 3rd and final round twice and lost both times. Very frustrating but no doubt I'll be back to try again.

    One to get in the Christmas sales I think like others have stated I'm not liking the loot box items and I'm not even reading the messages that appear. Just give me a leaderboard and a list of tracks it doesn't need all the other shite. Trials HD on the xbox 360 was a great example of that.

    @DangerousDave_87 Pretty much my thoughts on the Switch version. Everest is fab when you get there though, and I really like the Challenges system. I improved massively on Everest when that one rolled around and it's making me go beyond Golds.

    Tried the Extreme track and got nowhere. This may not be a Switch-specific issue...

    Used to post here as crwoody, hi guys! :)

    Downloaded this on the Switch last night and immediately purchased the full game, just one more go baby!

    Can you add Ubisoft friends for them to appear on leaderboards?

    Probably best to steer clear of the switch version if you have a choice

    @Woodythecowboy

    Hi woody o/

    Although the leaderboards are cross platform I think it only shows your xbox/psn friends on the friends boards which is a shame, hoping there might be a way to show/add people using ubi club at some point.

    Added you on that, on ps4 as ComradePete.

    @ComradePete No need to worry, after seeing the differences between the switch and other versions, I'm double dipping and also buying on Xbox one.

    Hoping the ubisoft account will sync over devices now so I can at least play on the Switch at work. :D
