In the mail I got from Ubisoft about my pre-order on trials evolution gold there was this at the end:
Platform: PC (Pre-Ordered)
pre-ordered release date: Thu Feb 28 00:00:00 CST 2013

Awesome to see both of your SMB avatars.

I would join but I really need to get into the game first.

I haven't touched Trials since PC back in late '08-early '09 it became one of those games a friend and I played either hungover or drinking and before going out to a party (we had other music on while playing it)

So for me, I'll take a fairly slow approach. Oh and it'll be the first time http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_asleep.gif guess 5th technically) using a 360 controller.

If you preorder the game.

02-26-2013, 10:25 PM
If you preorder the game.
So if I pre-order the non-physical game. Do I still get all the extra stuff ( Gold bike, trials hd rider etc)? And also if I buy the physical copy of the game, why don't I get the beta then? Seems more reasonable since it is more expensive.

If you get the Uplay digital version you get all the exclusive content as well as beta access. Both the steam version and physical version have less stuff, but the physical doesn't have beta access. As to why you don't get the beta; who knows!

I don't see why you won't get access. The beta runs for two weeks, if you preorder during that time, you will just hop in.

That should mean for us in Australia, it will be around 4pm............fantastic! Knock off work at 5pm then Trials, Trials, Trials!

And in my honest opinion, buying through UPlay is the go - if only for the extra content for the Pre-order. Already have games like AC3, Driver SF, etc through UPlay, so was convenient anyway for me.

Look forward to seeing you out there!

About 5PM for me over in South Korea, I think!

I personally don't care about the extra costumes/wheels and I don't own anything else on UPlay - apart from Splinter Cell: Conviction (which is also through Steam), so preferring Steam. There's also that if I buy from UPlay, it likely has to be through the EU store which costs more. That said; I don't know about Steam's pricing yet.

First there would something in the neighborhood of a 3.5 GB download http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_asleep.gif think that's the size...?).

And then the forums would have at least one thread titled "Downloading Now!!!" or something.

So nope, not up on Uplay yet.

I'm not sure how Uplay works with a preorder, I'm so new to it.

I restart it, check the email associated with it in case I have to activate the beat that way.

Check my games tab, nothing. I'm headed to bed. It's 11:00 pm here and I gotta get a fresh start tomorrow. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

As far as I know, Ubisoft games on Steam just launch UPlay, then you download it. So it doesn't matter if you buy it from Steam.

I think you guys are putting too much emphasis on the information on the email from Ubisoft.

I think that is a generic email for new releases which generally are released at midnight of release day.

This is not a full release, but a beta.

Red Lynx / Ubisoft should have better communication with their customers.

Especially as this is their own forum, Red Lynx should be more active.

It is not blame, but fact.

Red Lynx/Ubisoft are the same company, someone will know when the release time is. Someone will know when the Steam release will be.

Somebody should be able to ask someone and find out instead of al this "will it / wont it" talk.

In any other industry, it would be unacceptable but with games, we are just meant to accept it.

Sounds like blame to me http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/razz.gif



Red Lynx/Ubisoft are the same company
Ubisoft owns Red Lynx - they are not the same company.
Red Lynx don't know things that Ubisoft do, and vice versa. This is in the same way that any parent company (in any industry; banking, insurance, travel etc) would know things their subsidiary doesn't, and vice versa (although from a financial point of view, the parent company will eventually need to consolidate all the earnings from its subsidiaries into one group-level report).


Somebody should be able to ask someone and find out instead of al this "will it / wont it" talk.
True. From my understanding, the lovely RedLynx people who have frequented this forum have been asking, and they have been replying where possible (as alluded to in my previous post)


In any other industry, it would be unacceptable but with games, we are just meant to accept it.
I know your point is sarcasm, but many industries have delays that nobody can deal with. Think books' due dates, consumer product releases, government policies. None of them are truly comparable (especially the last one; far out the government is slow at implementation), but I think it kind of proves contrary to your point.
That said, who said we have to accept it? I'm just saying a little bit of patience and understanding goes a long way.

I should not have said "same company", although when one subsidiary is providing the final product, in this scenario, lines of communication should be more open in an ideal world.

That is not a blame of Red Lynx / Ubisoft but a general observation.

I think this is a different issue, though. We payed for something and expected it delivered on the promised time (00:00 Febuary 28th) and it didn't show up. It's kind of like buying a movie ticket a week before the viewing, and waiting outside the theatre for the doors to open, but they never do.

02-28-2013, 02:13 PM
Greetings,

The thing is they have known for ages when they "said" they were going to make the beta available. So if something has come up and the date they said is no longer possible then they should have said something. Instead no word from Ubisoft at all either way. For me this just wrong.

rlmergeuser
02-28-2013, 02:19 PM
I'm suddenly very interested in the demographic of people making the different types of comments about the issue.

Patience is a virtue; yes, they said one thing and haven't delivered at this point in time, but it's not the end of the world.
We have internet connections (to keep us occupied), clean water + ample food (compared to others in this world), and a beautiful life full of improvements in many things to come; surely a few hours of delays on a video game can't have dampened life that much http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/razz.gif
I'm sure a week after the beta's released people won't give two ****s about it having been released late xD (unless some sort of financial hardship was caused due to its late release? I'm sure there are circumstances that would warrant disdain, but I doubt most of us fit that bucket)

rlmergeuser

So our complaints and worries are invalid because we live good lives? The fact is still that we paid money for something we expected to have 6 hours ago, and we expected it 6 hours ago because of what Ubisoft told us. It wouldn't have been so had if they just communicated a bit so fans and consumers wouldn't be left in the dark.

Not saying they're invalid by any means. They should communicate, no arguments.

Hi, guys,

First the beta will be launching today. You have to understand that since this is a beta and not the actual launch of the game there are many technical issues that can arise and things don't always go as planned. For most players the beta should become available around 10am PST (6pm GMT). Exact launch time for Steam has not yet been confirmed but we hope it will be around that same time.

If you got an e-mail stating the beta would be avaialable at midnight I'm sorry but that was incorrect. We never stated an exact time for the beta to begin because we ourselves didn't know. That e-mail was automatically generated by uPlay and I assume that since we didn't give an exact time it used the time of 00:00 by default.

For those that asked the beta will end on March 14th, one week before release.

I can't guarentee that leaderboards will remain after the official launch but the current plan is to only wipe the leaderboards clean if we encounter an issue that requires it like scoring calculation errors that would make the leaderboards inaccurate.

hey, guys,

Just a heads up it's actually getting a bit late here in Helsinki (8:30pm) so I'm going to go home now. If anybody has any issues downloading or installing the game please contact uPlay or Steam customer support.

I've just gotten word that it has finally appeared on Steam. So if you've been waiting for that http://store.steampowered.com/app/220160/

I was going to wait for a hard copy but I've been convinced by Sandholm to get this now on Steam and then get a hard copy later on, when it's cheaper or something.

Downloading now!

Question to Uplay pros out there. Can you only use one account to play trials gold on uplay or can you choose accounts?
Edit: Also, why the heck do I have the Japanese version when i'm Norwegian o.O?
