Trials Evolution expansion, PC version on the way
Xbox Live Arcade game Trials Evolution receiving Origin of Pain DLC in Q3, PC Gold Edition containing HD and Evolution games coming early 2013.
After setting first-day sales records on Xbox Live Arcade with Trials Evolution in April, developer RedLynx is set to bring more tracks to the arcade racer. The game's first downloadable expansion, Origin of Pain, is set on Paine Island and will include 36 new tracks including lost temples, deserted beaches, a volcano, and a haunted circus.
The expansion will also include a new vehicle in the form of a BMX dirt bike, which has its own tracks, plus 10 new multiplayer tracks and new additions to the track editor including teleporting, gun firing, switch filters, and vector math. Origin of Pain will be hitting the Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft points during Q3 2012.
RedLynx will also be bringing the Trials series back to the PC for the first time since 2008's Trials 2: Second Edition. Trials: Gold Edition will include both Trials Evolution and Trials HD, resulting in more than 120 tracks, in early 2013. The package will also include console features such as leaderboards, user-made content, and online multiplayer.
