A closed beta for Trials Evolution: Gold Edition, the PC port of the XBLA hit set to drop in March 21, has started today. Ubisoft has announced that anyone who pre-orders the digital version of Trials Evolution: Gold Edition will get instant access to the beta, which runs until March 14.

The beta itself covers all game content – it's less of a beta and more of an early unlock for a specific amount of time, really. Trials Evolution: Gold Edition features all of the content from the console release, plus all tracks from Trials HD, recreated with Trials Evolution's updated graphics and physics engine.
