'Trials Evolution' (XBLA) Racks Up 500,000 Players

Trials Evolution returns to Xbox Live Arcade with all-new challenges, expansive outdoor environments, and four-player multiplayer via Xbox Live.

In Trials Evolution, you’ll flip, climb and race your way across levels that span both indoor and outdoor tracks, or build your own level using the new level editor that lets you share your creations with anyone on Xbox Live.

RedLynx shared some interesting numbers based around the game’s unique level editor, which allows players to create and easily share user-generated content through the game’s built-in Track Central system.

“To date, players have created more than 60,000 custom tracks and skill games, using the exact same editor we used to build our own levels within the game,” said Tero Virtala, Managing Director of RedLynx. “Those same players have recorded more than one million entries on custom Leaderboards associated with user-created tracks, they have given more than 800,000 reviews of UGC within Track Central.”

“We spent two years developing the tools,” said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx. “With them, in less than a month, users have created more than 60,000 levels, including both high quality Trials levels and extremely innovative, creative skill games that have truly amazed us.  And this is just the start:  The editor is extremely powerful and users are still learning it.  It’s hard to even imagine what we will be seeing in the near future!”

“With right type of social features, tools and support for user-generated content, the traditional gaming terms like “amount of content”, “play-through time” and “value for money” get a whole new meaning.  There are going to be a number of fast-evolving game market segments, but what we have now seen in the console-space, is definitely a glimpse of the future of gaming,” said Virtala.

Key Features:

  • Multiplayer – both local and online
  • Challenging but balanced single player game
  • Outdoor environments and curved driving line
  • Full-featured track editor
  • Global track sharing
  • Bike and rider customizations
