Trine 4 and Trine Ultimate Collection Coming This Fall

Posted by | March 05, 2019 | News, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, Video, Xbox One | No Comments

Indie developer Frozenbyte and publisher Modus Games have announced the fourth game in the co-op puzzle-platforming series Trine. It’s called Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.

At the same time they announced Trine: Ultimate Collection, which will include all four Trine games. Both Trine 4 and Trine: Ultimate Collection are coming this fall for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One. Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince will also be available for Switch.

Trine 4 will reunite the fantasy heroes of Amadeus (wizard), Pontius (knight), and Zoya (rogue). The Astral Academy sends the heroes on a quest to find Prince Selius, whose nightmares threaten the entire world.

Series fans will be satisfied to hear that Trine 4 will return to the 2.5D side-scrolling roots of Trine 1 and 2. Trine 3, released in 2015, took the platforming-puzzle series into 3D, and was met with mixed to bad reception.

For the first time in the series, Trine 4 will support up to four player co-op, online and locally. Puzzles will scale for the number of players, while the combat system has been revamped and enriched.

Pre-ordering the physical versions will net some goodies. The Trine 4 box will include a physical cloth world map. The Ultimate Collection has the world map and collector’s reversible cover sheet, as well as digital download codes for the soundtrack and art book.

Trine 4 has not yet been rated. The previous three Trine games were rated E10+ with Fantasy Violence and Alcohol.
