PS4 sales stood at 7 million in April although Sony has failed to provide an update since. PS3 and PS4 sold a combined 3.4m units between April-June 2014, however, of which the vast majority are expected to be PS4."

3d ago - Community Manager Daniel Nixon announced that Trials Fusion: Riders of the Rustlands PS4 DLC arrives on PlayStation 4 today!

To quote: Rev up your engines, Riders of the Rustlands is coming to your Playstation 4 today! It's time to continue your journey of racing dominance on the leaderboards by venturing into the fringes of civilization, leaving the cityscapes and high-tech regions in the dust.

In the Rustlands, you will encounter the home of people who have been ignored and forgotten by their government, people forced to scavenge through the shambles of once-thriving facilities in an effort to survive outside of the gleaming high-rises and vast cities. Warring factions, neglected laboratories and tetanus boosters are a way of life in the Rustlands.





Riders of the Rustlands brings ten new tracks to Trials Fusion, adding six medium-and-up difficulty classic Trials Tracks, two Supercross Tracks, one Skill Game, and one FMX Track.

There are also 18 Track Challenges, with new secret locations, and additional squirrels to be discovered, as well as 5 new trophies to earn. Track creators will find a nice selection of new Rustlands pieces in the Track Editor to use in their custom content.
