E3 2011: Trials Evolution in the works for Xbox Live Arcade release
RedLynx, the studio behind the XBLA motocross platformer hit Trials HD, has announced a sequel to that game called Trials Evolution.
Expected to go live this year, a trailer was released on the XBLA dashboard along with the title’s announcement.
"Trials Evolution is more than just a sequel to Trials HD," said RedLynx creative director Antti Ilvessuo.
“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.”
Studio CEO Tero Virtala expanded on his company’s desire to build on the success of Trials HD.
"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," he said.
“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 XBLA community, made another Trials game something we really wanted to do.”
