Trials HD is a full-scale, physics-based motorcycle racing game. The game features over 50 mind-boggling tracks (levels) in two unique game modes: Race and Skill. Race-mode emphasizes balance, skill and control as the player tries to tackle indoor obstacle tracks with minimum faults, as fast as possible. Skill-mode extends the riding into breath-taking, extreme stunt tracks, in which explosions, crashes, and injuries cannot be avoided. Skill-games also introduce a completely new type of in-game friend scores, unseen in any other Xbox LIVE Arcade game so far.

The physics model of RedLynx’s Trials-game is taken even further, allowing the tracks to vary hugely from extreme stunt tracks to skill-based race tracks and physics puzzles. The game also has stunning full 3D HD graphics, rider customization, unlockable bikes, global rankings, and many other Trials HD specific features. While playing the game, players also get to enjoy the perplexing, hilarious, and absolutely fearless voice-overs from truly bone-breaking Trials HD riders: Brandon DiCamillo, Art Webb and Rake Yohn!

The next chapter in the history of Trials is Big Thrills, the second DLC for Trials HD. It will feature 40 new tracks, including 10 special user created courses, new tournaments, and new achievements. Trials HD - Big Thrills is scheduled to arrive on December 1, for only 400 Microsoft Points.

Trials Legends reprises 33 classic tracks from the early days of years 2000-2005 of Trials, and includes six bike models, 15 ranks to achieve, local scoreboards, a track creator, and a short history of RedLynx's Trials games. The tracks are based on courses from Trials Basic, Trials Pro, Trials Construction Yard, and Trials Mountain Heights - games originally released between 2000 and 2005 as free-to-play online Java games and small, for sale PC games.

"This is just one additional way of saying 'thank you' to the community," said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. "Trials HD launched just over one year ago and recently achieved the one million sales mark. In that time, we've constantly received amazing fan feedback and after that milestone, this positive response actually increased.

"One of the most common questions we receive is, 'How did you come up with Trials HD - where did it come from?' We decided that the best way to answers this, with the bonus of being able to thank our fans, was to show them the original Trials games, with some surprising twists, of course!"
