Deal lets it concentrate on making great games.

Life at Trials HD developer RedLynx won't change now that it's a part of the Ubisoft family, according to co-founder and creative director Antti Ilvessuo, other than the fact that it will have more time to devote to making great games.

Xbox Live Arcade game Trials HD has sold over a million copies, Finnish creator RedLynx has announced.

RedLynx told us back in March that it had sold over one million pieces of "content" - over 825,000 copies of Trials HD at 1200 MSP (10.20 / $14) a pop, and over 185,000 copies of the Big Pack DLC at 400 MSP (3.40 / 4.65) apiece.

Levels! Skill games! Editor objects! Patch.

RedLynx has pulled back the curtain and exposed the now dated and priced Trials HD BIG Pack downloadable add-on.

Inside are 23 new courses to hop around on and they focus on the medium and hard tiers - the "sweet spot", the developer told us. They are split into 12 medium, 9 hard and 2 extreme.

Each has been built to focus on the new objects added to the editor. On our visit to Finland to visit RedLynx we saw a space-themed level that simulated zero-gravity by using the new wind-gust object. We were shown another level where players must stay atop a moving monster truck, which highlighted the new rolling car model.
