If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s this; I freaking love Trials HD. So, in the greatest news of this week, month, year, and possibly forever, Redlynx have released a teaser trailer for Trials Evolution, a sequel to the Xbox Live Arcade hit that had so many people addicted to it.
“Trials Evolution is more than just a sequel to Trials HD,” said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx. “We listened carefully to all the feedback we received from the previous game and added it to our own vision of what the ultimate Trials game could be, coming up with a gamer’s wish list of must-play features.” He promised more details would be revealed in the future
The biggest thing that can be taken from this short trailer is that it shows several different colored bikes racing side-by-side along the track. Could this mean that you’ll now be able to directly race people on track via Live? If so it could take the already competitive Trials formula and multiply it exponentially.
“Including the base game and both DLCs, Trials HD has sold more than two million copies since its release, making it one of the best-selling games on Xbox LIVE Arcade of all time,” said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. “And most importantly has also maintained a Metacritic score of 86 since its release among critics, and an even more generous 90 amongst gamers.”
“All these factors, including awards such as Best Nordic Game of 2010, Best Finnish Game of 2010, and Best Download of 2009 as voted by the Xbox LIVE Arcade community, made another Trials game something we really wanted to do,” Virtala said. “But we took our time in carefully planning and developing it before announcing it, because we wanted to do it right.”
Currently no pricing details have been announced, nor has a release date for the game
