In Trine 3 as in previous games the player controls three characters simulatneously
In Trine the player controls three heroes simultaneously, instantly switching between characters. Each character has its own unique capabilities. The Wizard can conjure and control objects, the Knight can fight with a sword and shield, and the thief uses a bow and a grappling hook. In co-op mode you need to combine each character's unique skills in order to get through a level.
The first two games were great, providing a perfect combination of puzzles, platforming and fighting, combined with very beautiful environments. Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is currently planned for a 2015 release on the PC. No other versions have been announced at this point. We will bring you any new information on Trine 3 as it becomes available.
