I was gone for a bit, but now I’m back (there’s a joke in there somewhere). Today’s picks will be done in the order I am first playing them. This means we are jumping right into it with;

Dehumanized by EvilForknspokes
Have I ever said that I like uphill tracks? Dehumanized is a flowing uphill battle where the best way to get a good time is to learn the track. There’s a great closed in feel for a good part of the track, with more open sections that lend themselves to feeling more dangerous when bridging some gaps. The decoration and the theme are well executed, and the only thing left to say is “go play it”, so go and play it.

Or you can feast your eyes on our video.

-OF- The Reaping by ObsceneFreak
I always play tracks first with the Roach. I don’t know why, but I do. The first thing I noticed after playing was just how long this track feels, and that’s not a bad thing. A full minute of Trials riding in a pretty excellently decorated track? Sign me up for these all day. This one is a high speed/flowy track, so it makes the track length even more impressive.

Check out The Reaping in Uplay Recommended, but we’ve got a video in case you can’t play just yet.

~White Night~ by KaiLiMAN x
If there is a track that feels more ominous than White Knight, please let me know. The sounds, coupled with the black and white aesthetic (and that message on the floor) just scream out that things are.. a bit off. It makes me a bit uncomfortable, and that’s not something you will typically see in a Trials track. It doesn’t hurt at all that there is a solid, tricky driving line inside of the track either.

I know we’re gonna link to a video, but please, go play this one first.

~MGK-Factory~ by G SatchmO
This may seem like a “by the numbers” track. Changed up lighting? Check. Flowing line? Check. Good decoration? Check. This is an all-around SOLID track. It’s also stupid fun to play and fail at. Those failures will also be your own fault. There wasn’t a single time that I thought “Ugh, stupid such-and-such was done wrong”. The only anger I felt, was towards myself. Also, that animation at the end…

Here’s our video of the MGK Factory, watch, play, have good times.

SUNDAY SERVICE by NicholasBBB
We started out the picks with an uphill, and that’s exactly what we are ending with. A super solid jaunt up the side of a temple/church (why is there LAVA?!) that will require some patience and a firm grasp of the basics of Trials bike handling. Anyone reading this should be able to complete this track… But doing so smoothly might be a bit more difficult of a task. I highly recommend this one for practicing those skills.

You can learn by watching (the video), or by doing (it yourself on Track Central).

Firefighter ¥ by kronenb
1, 2, 3, 4, 5… 6? You counted right, Trialists, there is an extra track this week. Firefighter by kronenb was selected for a special competition being run by the French Trials.fr forum (http://trials.fr/). We had already taken note of the track for a possible feature in Uplay Recommended so it was a no brainer when they asked if we could make it available on other platforms for their competition. The track is fast, fun and full of excitement as your rider takes on the role of a firefighter making his way through a blockbuster disaster movie circa 1997.

Given the last minute nature of this pick we don’t have our own video. Luckily edragal (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6tOyI5MCJYfdpJ2Mbe7S5w) has our back with this video.

6 Trials tracks in the bag but we’re not done yet. We’ve got two more X-Supercross creations coming in this week’s drop as well.

#2spooky4supercross by Ubi_Shogun
I usually talk some trash when we put a RedLynx employee track in here, but (and don’t tell Shogun I said this) 2spooky is actually fun. It’s really fun when you have a full lobby and watch everyone except for yourself get caught up on something. I mean, I guess it is. I wouldn’t know. I took a face full of rock on every “great” run I had going on.

Across the city [FG] by FG-312
I loaded up The City and went directly to the Panda… Don’t do that unless you have freakish TKO skills like Dumptruck. Across the city is on the shorter side, but I think it’s a good introduction to the slightly more difficult tracks in the land of Trials with just a couple of tougher obstacles.

That’s 8 new tracks out now on Xbox One, PS4 & PC. Some of our selections this week were too heavily optimized for the newer hardware to run Xbox 360 which will be getting some, but not all of this week’s tracks.

We post a lot of new tracks to Uplay Recommended, but sometimes we miss some. If you see tracks that should be here, then reach out to us on the forums, the Trials accounts on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/trials.official) & Twitter (https://twitter.com/TrialsGames), or even our (https://twitter.com/ShiftySamurai) personal (https://twitter.com/cannibalshogun) accounts (https://twitter.com/BlueBadger400) and say “Guys, this track is the bomb” and hashtag it #UplayRec or something.

That’s about all I have for this week.

looking good , not played them yet but i know for surethe ps4 contribution " of the repeaing " is a blast , awesome design and detail , good use of objects which at first glance i thought they wast even in the editor. Played it some time ago though so should be good to play again by now.

others look good too and the x supercross are pretty fun also , looking forward to playing that white night , i love new ideas and difference in tracks. Looks freaky it reminds me of the track i was creating my self some times ago with the 3d black and white primes bringing out the 3d element which at almost the end i saved over it. Done this about 3 times now , each time my ps4 gets a step closer to the front room window hahaha

nice looking choices ,

(why is there LAVA?!)

Why is the sky blue? What makes a rainbow so pretty? I think questions like these are best left to the suits and fat cats in Washington.

@ aMc - I doubt it, I too was pretty shocked we only got two new tracks for UPlay picks this week (I suppose its better to say you'll be getting some than just two to not look as bad in the description), and last week we were given tracks we have already all played as if it was an afterthought. I can understand how great it was last week with all those competition tracks for the other consoles and it wasnt possible for 360, but I thought more thought could of been put in to at last give us other tracks that we havent played.
I kinda hope things pick up on 360 again because these last two weeks its been left out of a few things. Anyway, I liked your last new tracks aMc, always find your extreme tracks real challenging and addictive to 0 fault.

Thanks that means a lot I work really hard on my tracks some take 2 weeks to build. Most of the time I can do one track a week. I wish we 360ers should stop being left out its depressing I'm like woop woop Thursday uplay :( nope one track I'm like wow this sucks. Then I figured maybe there was a mistake on there end every hour or so I checked the uplay feed and nothing changed. Believe me if I had the butter is buy an X1 but I have priorities and responsibilities that supersede gaming. I also wish they would just be upfront and say this is the last update, DLC, season ect.

More great tracks! I haven't played the Super Cross ones yet, I better get on that. Wow, also I can't believe it's already been a year (give or take a couple days), but still awesome!
