A new update has arrived for RedLynx‘s Trials Frontier, adding a PvP mode that allows players to directly compete against each other. PvP races in-game are organized by the mysterious Zudina, who has appeared from her underground bunker to set up month-long showdowns over three tracks that don’t allow for restarts. At the end of each match players will be rewarded with PvP chips, which in turn can be traded to unlock tracks, outfits, and special items.
Justin Swan, Lead Designer on Trials Frontier, had this to say on the update:
The PvP mode is the largest in-game update in Trials Frontier, and will be the first time a true competitive Player vs. Player has ever come to the Trials’ Universe. We’ve worked diligently to create a PvP mode that lets players race each other asynchronously while also keeping the competitive Trials spirit alive. We’re inviting all of our players to come fight for a spot on our Legends Leaderboard for fame, glory and in-game winnings.
Trials Frontier is available to download for free from the App Store now.
