'Trials HD' and 'Evolution' confirmed for PC in March

- +

Having racked up an impressive 4 million sales, the motorcycle stunt series "Trials" will be making a comeback on PC with an ultimate edition planned for March. 

Trials Evolution: Gold Edition -- bound for PC in March 2013

Finnish developer RedLynx had originally devised "Trial Bike" and its successor "Trial Bike Pro" in the early 2000s as PC games, and then "Trials 2" in 2008, but the contemporary "Trials HD" (2009) and "Trials Evolution" (2012) were previously limited to Xbox 360, where they received critical and popular acclaim.

The PC version of "Trials Evolution: Gold Edition" is promised for March 21 in North America, March 22 in European regions, and is to include global leaderboards, local and online 4UP multiplayer, the track editor, and over 129 tracks as part of the deal.

Though the game itself is "Trials Evolution," all of the original "Trials HD" tracks will be contained within it, which should turn the "Gold Edition" into a comprehensive catch-up.

What helped make the latter "Trials" games successful, as well as the intense competition of friend leaderboards and oftentimes infuriatingly well-implemented physics simulation, was the compulsive nature of their instant restart functions -- much like fellow physics-based assault courses "Joe Danger" and "Happy Wheels," no error had to take players away from the action for longer than it took to hit that checkpoint button.
