Trials Evolution: Gold Edition crash-lands on Steam, reloads, crashes again
After mucking around on the Xbox 360 for a few too many years, Trials is finally back where it belongs: on PC. As our preview explained earlier this week, Trials Evolution: Gold Edition is no simple port. It includes every piece of content from Trials HD, its similarly Xbox-exclusive predecessor, all of which have been rebuilt in the Evolution engine. That makes for 129 tracks and mini-games in total - or a "crapton", in technical terms. The game hits digital stores today, and yer actual brick-and-mortar ones tomorrow, once the game's jumped over that large gap, survived some explosions and done the loop-de-loop. You'll find a bone-shattering launch trailer below.
Ouch. The Big Thing about Evolution is its hugely powerful level editor, which has been used to make all sorts of exciting stuff. That's obviously included in this PC edition - though, disappointingly, we won't be able to access the 300,000-odd Xbox 360 mods - along with instant replay-sharing via YouTube.
You can grab Trials Evolution: Gold Edition here, once the game unlocks in a matter of hours.
