How many tracks are there in Trials Frontier?

Are there leaderboards for Trials Frontier?
There are both friend and global leaderboards which not only let you know how you stack up against your friends, but also the levels of their bikes. You can gain some serious bragging points by bagging a track previously held by someone with a better bike than you have.

Is there multiplayer in Trials Frontier?
Trials Frontier utilizes asynchronous multiplayer. You can race against the ghosts of your friends or anyone in the world to both foster competition, as well as learn from their moves. There are two ways you can race against another player's ghost in Trials Frontier: ANBA Missions and Showdowns.

Is Trials Frontier a companion app for Trials Fusion?
Trials Frontier is a stand-alone game optimized just for mobile. By connecting Trials Frontier with Trials Fusion on Uplay you can unlock new, super cool rider gear for both games!

How will the upgrade system work?
You will earn coins and find upgrade material by completing races and missions. These coins and items are then used to craft permanent performance upgrades for your motorcycles.

How much do I have to pay to play Trials Frontier without limits?
There is no way to “buy” unlimited play or an advantage over other players.  You can upgrade the size of your fuel tank for longer single play sessions as well as the village fuel pump which reduces the amount of wait time between fuel regeneration.

What kind of leaderboards does Trials Frontier have?
There are Friend and Global leaderboards for each track in the game and an Overall leaderboard that represents your standing in the whole game, both among your friends and everyone who is playing it.

How are the leaderboard scores calculated?
On track leaderboards, the number of faults and the time it took you to finish the track define your position. Faults count more, so people with worse time, but less faults may be higher than you on track leaderboards. Overall leaderboard score is based on how many tracks you have raced and your times and faults on those.

How often are the leaderboard scores updated?
If you play online, all leaderboard scores and ghosts are uploaded immediately when you finish the race. If you play offline or haven't yet connected to Uplay, leaderboard results are uploaded when you connect, but ghost data takes a while to get updated. For this reason, some people on the leaderboards may have a high score, but you can't race their ghost yet.

What is the Slot Machine?
The Slot Machine gives players a random mission that will reward them with prizes upon completion. Players can earn a ton of cash, power ups, and unlock 10 new tracks. The Slot Machine will need to be upgraded to access all of the new tracks.

What is ANBA? What is the last stage for ANBA?
He is a robot who has his memory circuits broken, and you can help him fix them by completing the challenges he gives you. ANBA never ends, as new tracks are added constantly to keep improving his memory.

Do I need to stay connected to internet to play Trials Frontier?
No, that's not necessary, but some cool features like leaderboards, ANBA, and Slot Machine are only available when you are connected to the internet.

If I try to reinstall the game, will I lose my progress?
If you have connected to Uplay, your progress is stored on the server and can be fetched back after reinstalling the game by logging into Uplay.

Will my leaderboard score be removed if my accounts get reset?
Leardboard scores are stored on the server, so they are safe!

When I choose to connect to Facebook, will my friends' wall be spammed by messages?
No, we don't automatically post any messages on FB from your account.

How does the upgrade system work?
You will earn coins and find upgrade material by completing tracks and missions. These coins and items are then used to craft permanent performance upgrades for your motorcycles.

Can I reset the game and start again from the beginning?
There is no reset option in the game, but if you reinstall the game, you can start again from the beginning. If you have logged into Uplay, when the game asks you to sync your progress you need to choose the local one. Note that in this case, you lose 

What platforms does Trials Frontier support?
The game is currently available on iOS, Android, and Amazon Kindle devices.

How do I add friends on Trials Frontier?
You can add friends by sending a request through the in-game Uplay page or if you have linked your Uplay and Facebook accounts, simply by adding people to your Facebook friends.

I reinstalled the game and now my progress is gone, how can I retrieve it?
If you were playing the game while connected to Uplay, your progress is saved to the server and can be retrieved by logging in to Uplay. After connecting to Uplay using the same account you used before, the game checks if you have a save available on server and asks you if you want to keep the current local progress or instead download the progress from the server. To retrieve your old game, choose the progress from the server.

I was asked to choose between two progress options today, which one should I choose?
The two messages are "keep local progress" and "download progress from the server". These pop ups appear when:
1. You have previously logged into Uplay and played the game in offline mode for some time.
2. You reinstall the game and login to Uplay with the account you have used to play Trials Frontier with previously.
3. You have played the game on another device while logged into Uplay.
4. You are being credited an item, coins, or gems.
You can choose if you want to continue the existing game on the device or if you want to download the progress from the server. You will also see the level of your rider in both saves and when the last time you played the progress that has been stored on the server.

My game crashes after updating to the new version, what can I do?
Here are some basic troubleshooting steps for the issue:
1. Quit and relaunch the application. On iOS, you can do this by double tapping the home button to launch the fast app switcher and then swipe the game out.
2. If you have connected to Uplay previously and played online, your progress is stored on the server. In this case, you can delete and reinstall the game.
3. Try launching the game in airplane mode and if it launches, play it for some time before connecting back to the internet.
If these steps don't help, check our forums and FB page for any extra information.

I am not able to make any purchases in the game, can you fix this?
Check whether your device has in-app purchases enabled. On iOS, you can do this by browsing to Settings > General > Restrictions > In-App Purchases, and making sure these are set to ON. Then try quitting and restarting the game again.

How can I contact support to get assistance?

I am connected to the internet and Uplay, but cannot access online services like leaderboards and ANBA.

Do I need a Facebook account to play Trials Frontier?
No, it is not mandatory. However, you can use your Facebook account to easily create a new Uplay account if you don't have one yet, or link it to your existing Uplay account to play against your Facebook friends and be able to share your best times on Facebook.

I did an in-app purchase, but didn't get the item. What should I do?
Sometimes the transaction may fail due to technical issues. In such cases, please use the customer support option in the settings menu to contact our customer support. They will get back to you as soon as possible.


What is Photo Finish Sharing?
When you finish a track you may share a screenshot of your accomplishment on social media via text or email. In addition, you'll be rewarded the first time you do so.

What is PVP?
Ranked, head to head competition against other players.

How does PVP work?
You compete against another player for a number of hours across 3 randomly chosen tracks, each with a randomly chosen bike that you both must race. The player who has the best performance on 2 of the 3 tracks when the timer runs out wins!

How many players can play PVP at a time?
PVP is a 1v1 competition, so only 2 players in a single match, although the whole world is playing in the same season.

Are leaderboards different in PVP?
Yes. Times set in PVP are not saved to the normal leaderboard (unless you get the new best time with a proper tier bike). There is a season rank leaderboard though which shows who has the highest rank among your friends for that season. Then, for the best players, there is the Legends Leaderboard where players are directly ranked against other legendary players.

How do I reach the legendary leaderboard?
Earn Rank 1 in the season and then level up again, you will then be placed into the Legendary Leaderboard.

How do I earn chips?
You earn chips automatically when you have the best performance on a track during a match. The longer you have the best performance, the more chips you earn.


What are golden tickets?
Golden tickets are tickets that give you extra tries to defeat your opponent in PVP matches. You can use them also to start extra matches over the normal match limit.

- Badge: Get a Riders Club badge next to your name on the Leaderboards to show off your superiority to the world!
- Month-long: The membership lasts for a full month and reactivating it is entirely your choice!

What kind of quests does the Puppy give?
The Puppy gives quests that span the entire game, from medals to LB ghost racing to interacting with other systems (like the Bunker). The puppy's quests are simple and easy to execute, but serve to provide visibility to the other parts of the game. 

What is the Doghouse? And what are the rewards for it?
The Doghouse is a counterpart to the Saloon that gives you daily quests, which are not a part of the game's core narrative. The Doghouse rewards you with XP, coins, gems, crafting parts, and eventually some special surprises. These rewards grow the more days you consecutively play the Doghouse. These rewards cap at Day 7, at which point you are reset to Day 1.
