Discover The Origin Of Pain With Trials Evolution

Through press release means, Ubisoft has announced that Trials Evolution should receive its first major downloadable content pack by the end of September.

Aptly titled Origin of Pain, the digital add-on will take players on a trip to Paine Island, where thirty-six new tracks will be available for mastering. Their themes will, according to the release, include “lost temples, a haunted circus, deserted beaches and a menacing volcano.”

In order to justify the download’s 400 Microsoft Point ($5) price tag, the publisher has also confirmed that ten additional multiplayer tracks will be included, along with a brand new BMX dirtbike, which will be coupled with tailored tracks and a unique special event.

However, that’s not all. In fact, the game’s level editor will also be receiving an upgrade, which will allow it to offer “teleporting, gun firing, switch filters and vector math.”
