Today we received new details on the PC/Mac launch, which will include a retail release in Europe. The game is set to hit in Q4 (still quite vague). I got a chance to play the game at e3 as well and it’s looking to be a worthy successor to the original.
Check out this new gameplay trailer:
And some screenshots!

Focus Home Interactive and Frozenbyte announce Trine 2 for European PC/Mac retail and digital release on Q4 2011
Focus Home Interactive is proud to announce their partnership with Frozenbyte to release Trine 2 for PC/Mac retail and digital release in Europe in Q4 2011. Trine 2 is the sequel to the first Trine, the enchanting side scrolling adventure that has enthralled nearly a million players and received a long series of awards as the game was highly praised by the press and gamers all around the world.
Trine 2 is set for Q4 2011 in Europe for PC/Mac retail and digital release, and takes gamers on another adventure with the powerful knight Pontius, the swift thief Zoya and the crafty wizard Amadeus. The three heroes embark on a new adventure more fantastic than ever, where you will have to survive lethal traps and terrifying monsters, solve many physics-based puzzles and unravel an epic mystery during a challenging campaign that can be played either solo or in co-op with up to 3 players online or offline! Featuring stunningly sumptuous visuals, a masterful original soundtrack, and clever physics-based gameplay, Trine 2 is the perfect mix of old-school platforming action, original physics-based level design, and cooperative multiplayer fun!
Cédric Lagarrigue, CEO Focus Home Interactive: “This is a great pleasure to accompany a studio as talented as Frozenbyte for the European launch of the sequel of this marvelous game. It has already been a great pleasure and privilege playing Trine 2 and we look forward to sharing this accomplished and fascinating game with everybody in Europe.”
Lauri HyvÃƒÂ¤rinen, CEO Frozenbyte: “We are delighted to partner with Focus and bring Trine 2 to European gamers through their extensive distribution network. We are making sure that Trine 2 as a game will be fantastic and we are happy that Focus will be with us to make sure that the PC version gets the kind of distribution it deserves!”
Trine 2 will be available in Europe as a Standard Edition and as a Collector’s Edition that features an exclusive CD soundtrack by the returning composer Ari Pulkkinen (recently of Angry Birds/Outland fame).
