Trine 2 delayed

Trine 2 delayed

Developer Frozenbyte has delayed Trine 2 until 'late summer' for unknown reasons.

Developer Frozenbyte has delayed the release of upcoming action-puzzle-platformer, Trine 2. The team has not given a reason for the delay.

Trine 2 is now set for release in 'late summer', when it will launch on PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade all at once.

The original Trine, which told of three heroes bound together by a curse, was one of our favourite co-operative games of 2009 thanks to some beautiful environments and clever physics-based puzzles that had multiple solutions. In fact, Trine still holds on to the Underdog Award in the Bit-Gamer Hall of Fame!

Like the original, Trine 2 will boast co-operative play - this time in offline and online modes.

To help compensate for the delay, Frozenbyte has released a gorgeous new trailer for Trine 2, which you can see below.

Check out our Trine review for more information on the series, then let us know your thoughts in the forums.

yay, Trine 2. I didnt even know the game was in development. I had a good few hours playing the first, and definitely looking foward to this now too.

Trine is a great game! And this trailer must be the most beautifull one I saw in a while. This game really deserves good sales. All the best for the team!

On a side note, I just saw the "Catherine, the game" in the related movies. It is from Atlus too. I was really impressed! looks like we are going to rear about this developer a lot in the coming years.

Atlus is the publisher, they've been publishing JPRGs for years.

I loved the original Trine. It really went under the radar, yet it was simply fantastic. Also one of the best looking games i've ever seen, with a great use of colour. Trine 2 looks to be no different.

Trine is one of the few indie or indie-like games that I've actually thought was worth its asking price. I thought it had some of the best visuals of any game in recent years (yeah, including Crysis) and it was the first platformer I've enjoyed since Jazz Jackrabbit 2.

Fun gameplay, absolutely gorgeous graphics, fantastic music and great atmosphere - It looks like Trine 2 is going to be more of the same so it's a must-get for me.

Instead of the last level in this one they might as well just show a middle finger or trollface on the screen.

Don't get me wrong, I loved Trine. Up to that point.

Up to what point? The final level?

Yup. Rising lava death + random elements spawning just to piss me off = fail.

The developers have acknowledged that the last level was a mistake. I remember that killing the enthusiasm I had for it immediately. Even lowering the difficulty to Easy, it seemed to make no difference to how quickly the lava rose.

The first Trine was awesome, I was sad when it ended but it seems like this game could only be made better in the sequel. Hopefully we get a chance to use some more exotic weapons than in the first game.

@ Yemerich - I am very much looking forward to Catherine myself, some of the levels in that game look intense as far as platformers go. Not to mention all the cool sheep people!

@ Zurechial - There was a Jazz Jackrabbit 2!!!???

Yeah that was kinda tedious, but I played through it because it reminded me of the old days, NES, and SNES, and arcade days, they used to stuff like that a lot back then.

I actually enjoyed the last level of Trine.
It was frustrating as hell and I ended up using my 3 heroes as sacrificial meatshields just to get one of them to the top, but I found it fun and climactic enough for an ending.

There was, and it was awesome. :)

It's possible to get your hands on it as grey-area abandonware if your google fu is strong enough.

Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is awesome, one of my favourite games of all time probably.
