RedLynx has announced its stunt biker game, Trials HD, recently passed the 1 million sales mark on Xbox Live.

Available on the service since August of last year, the milestone is for the original game only and does not include sales of Big Pack, which was the first bit of DLC released for it.

“Only a handful of downloadable console games have reached this plateau,” said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. “For a company of about thirty-five people, it’s a significant achievement, and it validates our strategy of focusing on online and downloadable games that have the potential to evolve into long-term, successful game franchises.”

“This is a satisfying milestone, but it’s just the beginning,” added Antti Ilvessuo, creative director and co-founder of RedLynx, as well as the lead designer on Trials HD.

Big Thrills, the second expansion pack for the game, is targeted for a Q4 release this year, complete with 40 new tracks – 10 of which which were created by fans competing in the Track Creator Challenge.

“With the Big Thrills DLC, we are including ten of the very best user-created tracks right alongside our own. Thousands of tracks were entered into the competition [and] for the next few weeks, I shall be a very busy, track-judging man,” said Ilvessuo.

Great job, and congratulations.
