Trine 2 due for release in Q4 2011
Focus Home Interactive is the publisher for Trine 2, and has given the game its official release date – or release time-frame, we should say.
The Frozenbyte developed RPG-platform-puzzler will be out on PC and Mac in the fourth quarter of this year, most likely in the run-up to Christmas we’re guessing. It’ll be out as a downloadable game and boxed copy.
If you missed the original Trine, it was released two years ago and was regarded as something of a PC classic that came out of nowhere.
The sequel maintains the same basic concept and three characters: a fighter, mage and thief. Each have different powers, and in the single player game you can shift between them at will.
Trine is best enjoyed as a co-op multiplayer affair, however, with many laughs to be had as the wizard tries to levitate the fighter across pools of lava on wobbly boxes with predictable disasters occurring from time to time.
Want to take a look at some screenies and a trailer of the new Trine? Then point your browser in this direction.
The graphics have certainly been improved considerably, although many of the powers – the wizard’s boxes and levitation, thief’s rope and fighter’s shield – remain much the same.
The most obvious difference the trailer shows, apart from the tasty graphics, is the new enemies who look far more impressive and more varied than the original’s denizens (which mostly consisted of a lot of skeletons, if memory serves).
Frozenbyte has taken its time with this sequel, and we can only imagine the levels, physics and puzzles have been honed considerably to make for a compelling sequel. Fingers crossed that’s the case.
