There's something ludicrously addictive about Trials' particular brand of hair-pulling difficulty and motorcycle mayhem. It's a series that's more than the sum of its parts. Trials Rising is out next week and a free beta test is available to play now, providing a taster of what to expect. Naturally, this also means the Trials Rising PC system specs have been revealed.

Trials Rising Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-6100 3.6 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory

Considering Trials Rising is a game that's also coming to Nintendo Switch next week, it should come as little surprise to see it's very forgiving in terms of system requirements, particularly for a Ubisoft title.

The barrier for entry is set real low here. You'll need a low-end DX11 video card with at least 1GB VRAM, along with a bottom-rung Core i5 or AMD's aging FX-4100. Most laptops these days shouldn't even break a sweat with these specs, provided they at least have some form of dedicated graphics.

You'll need a fair chunk more to crank the graphics settings up in Trials Rising, but again it shouldn't be a concern for most. The CPU's only increase marginally, while the required VRAM for Ultra doubles to 2GB.

Trials games require absolute precision and timing though. A single dropped frame can be the difference between success and failure when you're trying to scale a cliff on a flimsy bike. Hitting a locked frame rate is an absolute must. Turn those graphics settings down if you need to because you'll have a much easier time if you can play Trials rising at locked 60 frames per second.
