Trials Evolution to Redefine Digital Downloads - AgainIt’s‘Survival of the Fastest’ in this feature-packed fol

June 7, 2011 (Helsinki, Finland)— RedLynx ( redlynx.com) today announced Trials Evolution for Xbox LIVE Arcade, the follow-up to its best-selling, critically acclaimed hit, Trials HD.

" 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 game announcement was accompanied by a teaser trailer, available on the Xbox LIVE Arcade dashboard, Spike TV, and other outlets, just prior to its announcement. The teaser offers a brief glimpse of the Trials action to come.

"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.”

Trials Evolution is expected to launch on Microsoft's Xbox LIVE Arcade service in 2011.
