Get ready for more very-pretty co-op platforming, because Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince has been announced by Frozenbyte and Modus Games! As before, players take control of knight Pontius, thief Zoya, or wizard Amadeus to solve tricky physics-based puzzles amidst lush environments. Unlike Trine 3, which introduced ill-received 3D sections, Trine 4 is once again strictly a 2.5D affair. You can check out a trailer for Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince below.

Yup, that certainly looks like Trine to me! You could argue the series hasn’t really changed much over the past decade, but after the disappointing Trine 3, a return to the basics is welcome. Here’s a rundown of Trine 4’s key features:

  • Gorgeous, 2.5D landscapes. Explore uniquely designed levels in beautiful, 2.5 dimensions, from breathtaking ruins and haunted tombs to tranquil birch groves and blueberry forests.
  • Local and online multiplayer. Play with up to 4 players online or in local co-op.
  • Captivating storytelling. Follow the story of a haunted prince as you journey through magical fairytale landscapes inhabited by friendly creatures, as well as a host of nightmarish foes.
  • Dynamic puzzle-solving. Solve puzzles - solo or with friends - that feature fire, air, light, magnets, electricity and more, with challenges tailored to the number of players.
  • Abundant skill trees. Unlock diverse abilities and amazing new skills.
  • Completely revamped combat system. Experience the heroes' own bloodcurdling nightmares in boss fights featuring an enriched combat system with fresh challenges and thrilling action!
  • Enchanting soundtrack. Enjoy a wondrous soundtrack with songs that bring life to each new environment.

Modus is also releasing Trine: Ultimate Collection, which will contain Trine 4 and all three previous games in one package. Ultimate Collection will also include a soundtrack, digital art book, and other goodies. The standalone version of Trine 4 costs $30, while Trine: Ultimate Collection will set you back $50.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is coming to PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch sometime this fall.
