Looks like 2019 is a great time to be a Trine fan, as Frozenbyte revealed today that the fourth entry in the acclaimed cooperative adventure series will arrive later this year. Titled Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, this all-new chapter will introduce new gameplay mechanics such as four-player co-op and a revamped combat system.
Featuring an all-new story that reunites Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince returns to the magic of 2.5D sidescrolling with the puzzle-platforming gameplay that defined a genre in Trine 1 and 2. Come play as the three iconic heroes in the most extensive Trine adventure yet, complete with stunning new environments and dynamic, physics-based puzzles that players have grown to know and love.
