Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince

Publisher Modus Games and developer Frozenbyte have released a new, nine-minute “101” trailer for Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.

Here is an overview of the game’s story, via Modus Games:

Trine’s cunning thief Zoya, brave knight Pontius, and wise wizard Amadeus will each master new tricks as they reunite for Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’s engrossing tale: Zoya will add elemental arrows to her quiver and levitating capabilities to her versatile rope; Pontius’ trusty blade will pack a shocking charge while his shield enables dream-like replicas of itself; and Amadeus will learn new conjurations plus a teleport-esque blink ability. These powerful discoveries and more are on full display in today’s trailer.

Players are free to tailor their journey through Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince to their liking through each hero’s distinctive skill trees. The game’s puzzles change depending on how many players are in a party, too; go it alone for total control and on-the-fly hero swapping, enjoy the series’ classic three-player design, or take on chaotic fun in the series’ first four-player multiplayer mode, where any combination of duplicate heroes is fair game.

Frozenbyte 4: The Nightmare Prince is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on October 8. On the same day, a Trine: Ultimate Collection featuring all four Trine titles will also be available. Read more about the sequel and collection here.
