E3 10; Trine 2 Debut Trailer confirms Online Co-Op
When Trine was first announced, we went crazy with anticipation. There is just so much to be excited about. We absolutely loved Trine. The music, the gameplay, the art direction, the narrator, everything! Such a magnificent game. If you haven’t played it yet, you are missing out on a magical experience.
By the looks of it, the sequel will be even better. The graphics in the original were already beautiful, but we’re extremely impressed with how great the sequel looks. It’s truly a technical achievement on all levels. It really is that breathtaking.
Trine 2 features more of what we loved. The Thief, Knight, and Wizard reprise their roles as the heroes in this tale. There’s more enemy variety, puzzles, and we’re promised that each character will be more balanced. Unique traits will be emphasized a lot more this time. Expect to utilize specific abilities frequently no matter who you choose. Will the Thief be the character of choice again? We’ll have to wait and see.
Just like the original, you can switch characters at any point in the game. There is support for up to three players offline and online. The lack of online play was our only gripe with the first Trine. If you didn’t get to play cooperatively before, you won’t have an excuse this time. Nor would you want one. Trine is at its best when played with friends. We’re sure the sequel will be no different.
Trine 2 is currently scheduled to release in the Spring of 2011. The game is being published by Atlus but it’s still developed by Frozenbyte. Check out the screenshots below:
