Trine 2: Complete Story Coming to PS4 Tomorrow

Kai's Avatar + Posted by Kai on Nov 14, 2013 // Frozenbyte

Hi everyone. I’m very happy to announce that Trine 2: Complete Story is a PS4 launch game. That was our goal, and it’s been a hectic few months, but we’ve made it. Trine 2: Complete Story is now officially lined up to arrive on PS4 tomorrow.

In the trailer above, you’ll see some of the new skills that are available in the Complete Story version, such as the Knight’s Kitesail Shield, and the Thief’s Low Gravity Arrow. There are a total of 20 levels full of adventure, with sceneries ranging from lush forests to a scorching hot desert, and the insides of a gigantic sandworm — even isles floating in the sky.

Trine 2: Complete Story supports DualShock 4′s touch pad, and it makes many elements of the gameplay very intuitive. An example of this is drawing boxes or planks with the wizard, and moving them around and interacting with the environment.

Trine 2: Complete Story, 02

Trine 2: Complete Story, 03Trine : Complete Story, 01

On the tech side, Trine 2 runs at beautiful full HD 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second. It’s truly a sight to see, and what’s more is that we’re also one of the few games at launch with stereoscopic 3D support. So remember to fire up your 3D TV’s, put on your glasses, and enjoy the visual splendor.

Trine 2: Complete Story launches on this Friday, November 15th in North America for $19.99. Thanks to everyone supporting us, and I hope you enjoy our game! If you want to stay up-to-date with news regarding Trine 2 and our other games, follow us on Twitter — and don’t forget to stay tuned here. We can’t wait!

I already own the game for PS3. Do I need to buy it again or is it free?

    + Joel Kinnunen on November 14th, 2013 at 3:18 pm said:

    Sorry, you’ll need to buy it again as we can’t support Cross Buy due to some issues on the backend (we’re self-publishing Trine 2: Complete Story on PS4, whereas we had a publisher on the PS3 version – and the PS3 version sadly doesn’t have the Goblin Menace expansion campaign or any of our recent gameplay updates). We also weren’t able to figure out any proper discount or consolation for the North American launch, sorry!

Is there local co-op?

    + Joel Kinnunen on November 14th, 2013 at 3:19 pm said:

    Yes there is! The co-op is for 2-3 players, and works both online and locally. For local co-op, you just connect the controllers and join right in, it’s very simple and you don’t have to go through any setup screens etc. It just works. Very much recommended too. :)

    + Joel Kinnunen on November 14th, 2013 at 3:27 pm said:

    You mean compared to the PS3 version? Quite a bit. While the PS3 version is still a nice experience, a year later we developed the Goblin Menace expansion that features 6 new levels and it has some of the best levels we’ve ever done, and overall it seems people really like the story a lot more too. It also includes new gameplay features/skills, and those skills can also be used in the main campaign (so things like the Knight’s Kitesail Shield which allows him to glide in the air, Thief’s Gravity Bubble which is awesome). There’s also been some gameplay changes and minor features, and the Complete Story edition also includes the Dwarven Caverns bonus level that we did not too long ago, which is a separate adventure of its own really.

    If you already own the PS3 version, then it’s a tough decision for sure… I’d say it’s best to make the decision based on how much you like the game, or wait for a sale (not sure if we will have any discounts in 2013 though, but down the line I’m sure it will happen). I hope this helps!

But more worried about the gameplay element.

Not sure if this would be a title even close in my lineup of purchases.

Would think about it, as a Cross Buy with Vita though.

Finally, a PS4 title with 3D support!!!

Will there be a discount for people who already bought Trine 2 on PS3?

Will remote play on VIta work with a local co-op players as well?

    Sadly there is no discount. :( We actually wanted to do it but it wasn’t possible for launch, sorry!

    Remote Play and local co-op, that’s a great question… To be honest I don’t have the answer for that, sorry!

@Rezolution77: I wasn’t talking to you.

Nice job taking 3 posts IN A ROW (yet again) to say nothing and do exactly what you complain about others doing.

You really are completely worthless. :)

OMG………. do you even read your own comments?

Maybe if you did you would realize that my reenactment of the very thing you are doing, is EXACTLY what you are complaining about.

BTW…….. notice YOU and those like you are the only ones, I resort to your own tactics with?

Let people complain, its their right.
Maybe some good can come of it, instead of you trying to force / ridicule them to be quiet.

Yep, as usual. Rezolution’s ego is so blinding to him/herself that he/she couldn’t see that he/she shot him/herself in the foot right in his/her very first post. Good job! Like I mentioned about a week ago, we should really let you wear Ryumoaner’s dunce cap for a few days. You seem to really want it.

By the way, nothing wrong with legitimate complaints or constructive criticism. But you’re completely bonkers if you think all the crybaby whining that you support will ever lead to anything truly good.

You’ve been trolling this blog for months now whining like a spoiled kid (which is sad for someone who claims to have kids), yet you still haven’t changed a damn thing. Sony’s still ignoring you, and people like me are still embarrassing you… no, wait, you’re embarrassing yourself, that’s right.

“one of the few games with 3D support at launch,” wait I thought this was the ONLY 3D game at launch. What else is in 3D?

also, do previous buyers get this free or do we need to buy again? Flower on PS4 is free for PS3 buyers, so I hope it’s the same for Trine 2.

You too afraid to use that huge intellect of yours, one at a time?

Or you like always jumping on a bandwagon since you have no willpower, and your lack of spine makes you a follower and NOT a leader?

Why would I be embarrassed?
You think a couple of Blog Avengers is humiliating?

I unlike you have real life to contend with, I do not sit in my home afraid, to say these things out loud.

Anyway, It is not unlike leaders to have to deal with multiple setbacks, since someone did not pave the way for them.

Good Luck to you Sore Thumbs, and Tired Arse.

    Sorry! There’s a dozen things that went wrong with our PS3 stuff, and sadly we ended up not being able to bring the Goblin Menace DLC to PS3. I think I’ve explained the reasons before to you, but in a nutshell there were technical issues (the DLC levels are much more demanding on the hardware, they didn’t run smoothly and would have required a lot of optimizations), and also business-wise there was some trouble, and on the tech side we also had issues with our version management because Goblin Menace was released one year after the original release, so a lot had happened to our game engine in that time… We would have needed to update the whole thing (2 gigabytes or so) and that too was a bit difficult on the previous gen consoles. Sorry! It’s not our proudest moment and I can only offer my sincerest apologies for that. :( Feel free to get in touch with our support at http://www.frozenbyte.com/contact/ and we can explain some more details.

@ Rezolution

The only thing you accomplished with that post is you proved to me how desperate you are for someone else to believe the lies you’re telling yourself. Yes, keep telling yourself that you’re so important. Some idiot, somewhere, one day, might believe you.

Anyway, the game looks lovely, and I’ll be sure to give it a shot when I inevitably purchase a PS4. Good work, Frozenbyte.

Will 3D also have 1080p resolution at 60fps?


    Kai's Avatar

     

    + Joel Kinnunen on November 16th, 2013 at 1:24 pm said:

    Thanks! We have to go by the 3D limitations at the moment – so the regular resolution is 1080p and 60 fps, but in 3D the resolution gets dropped to 720p (pet eye, at 60 fps). The game actually stills runs at 1080p internally. So in the future the game may even automatically be able to run and output at 1080p60 even in 3D if a new firmware is released and if the TV is modern (like 2012 onwards, depending on the models – I think the Sony W805 and W905 series should support it at least, I have a W805 myself so I’m keeping fingers crossed too!). And if not, we can hopefully create a small patch to make it happen. So let’s see how it goes!

Just bought the game at lunch so didn’t have tons of time to try it out yet, but I must say it’s BEAUTIFUL!

At the risk of being flamed (I readily admit i’m a trine noob), is there some sort of secret to using the touchpad on the dualsock 4 controller to draw (and summon) a box as the wizard? I tried 10 different times and I could never get it to work.

Perhaps I’ll figure it out tonight when I have more time to play around with it. But any advice would be greatly appreciated!
