The almost 10-year old action-platforming series Trine is getting a new installment later this year. Although Trine 4 was quietly announced last year, this is the first time we have gotten any details on the new game, and confirmation that it has gone back to 2.5D following the third game's fairly unsuccessful venture into full 3D space.
Titled Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, the game has the original three heroes - Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief - returning for a brand new quest involving the "troubled young Prince Selius."
Interestingly, the developer Frozenbyte also revealed that the game will include four-player coop for the first time in both local and online formats, but didn't go into detail on how it will work. This could mean another character could be joining the classic trio in the fourth game.
As usual for the series, the game also promises "abundant skill trees", "dynamic puzzle-solving", an "enchanting soundtrack," and more. Trine 4 will release sometime in fall 2019 for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
In addition to Trine 4, the studio also announced the Trine: Ultimate Collection, a pack that will include the entire series (including the new game) and extra goodies for retail buyers like a physical world map of Trine 4 and a digital soundtrack of the series. This edition will launch alongside Trine 4 and is heading for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
