Trine 2: Complete Story Points Its Sword at PlayStation 4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Two warriors, one wizard

If you aren’t already satisfied with the outrageous roster of indie games heading to the PlayStation 4, then hopefully Trine 2: Complete Story will win you over. The outrageously beautiful puzzle platformer from Finnish outfit Frozenbyte is set to strike the system soon, and will be self-published by the company on the console.

The game previously deployed on the PlayStation 3, but this enhanced re-release will include overhauled visuals, and will run in 1080p at a blistering 60 frames-per-second. Furthermore, it will include stereoscopic 3D support, which we suspect will work particularly well considering the title’s side-scrolling format.

For those unfamiliar with the original, it puts you in control of three disparate heroes, each boasting unique abilities. You can toggle between these characters on the fly, in order to solve different puzzles. The Wizard, for example, can build blocks by drawing shapes, which we hope will be mapped to the DualShock 4’s touchpad.

The company’s promising more information in the near future, but the absolutely delightful screenshots embedded in this article should tide you over until then. Are you willing to play through the game a second time? Did it pass you by on the PS3? Summon a reaction in the comments section below.

Sweet, I know some have complained about lack of AAA, and to much focus on Indies, but its not like PS3 didn't have AAA games, just because they don't throw 7 exclusives like Microsoft at launch, doesn't mean it wont have games, that just means PS4 will have lots of games in the first year, while Microsoft only really has Titanfall, since they have no Indies basically, and all there big games are at launched

YES! Played the demo back on the 360 and loved it. The visuals were gorgeous, even back then, so a 1080p version in 60fps with all of the PS4s shiny new shaders should be awesome! Definitely keeping an eye on that one!

The 3D support will be enough to entice me to give it another go. If it's at least full 720p or higher for 3D anyway good to see it still being added to titles

@get2sammyb One of the devs confirmed on the Playstation blog that the touchpad of the DS4 will indeed be used for drawing, riddles and such.

@MadchesterManc AND one of the devs also confirmed that the 3D output will be in 1080p/30fps per eye...with the devs trying to crank it up to 1080p/60fps after launch.

Sadly, the 3D will not be for me, I can't see it. Would love to see a beautiful game as this in 3D...or anything in 3D, for that matter.
