Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is Finally Coming Out This October


It has been several years since the last Trine game, but the fourth entry in the series has finally gotten a release date. Developer Frozenbyte and publisher Modus Games confirmed today that on October 8, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince will be hitting PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch; consequently, the Trine: Ultimate Collection that contains all four games will also be arriving on that date. Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince got a batch of new screenshots as well, so you can see those below:





At release, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince will cost $29.99 while Trine: Ultimate Collection will be $49.99. That being said, both will still see individual re-releases. As both of those physical releases have a solid launch date in sight, Modus Games also detailed what will be included in each package and what players will get if they decide to pre-order the game. When it comes to Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, its retail edition will include the game as well as a physical world map. Meanwhile, Trine: Ultimate Collection adds on the first three Trine games, download codes for the series’ original soundtrack as well as a Digital Art Book for Trine 4, and a reversible cover sheet.

If you pre-order either thing, you will also get a cloth poster based on Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’s box art as well as access to a DLC level called Toby’s Dream, which crosses over with another Frozenbyte game: Nine Parchments. In it, the three heroes of the Trine series help the dog Toby find treats within Heatherwood Hall.

This release date announcement came alongside a brand new gameplay trailer that you can check below. Trine: Ultimate Collection and Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince release for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 8, 2019 and both are available for pre-order on Amazon.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince Returns to the Series’ 2.5D Roots this Fall


Earlier this year, Frozenbyte and Modus Games confirmed that they had partnered to work on Trine 4, the latest entry in the puzzle-platforming series that put Frozenbyte on the map. Today, the game was fully unveiled by the pair. It reverts back to the 2.5D sidescrolling art style that the first two games have and will be releasing across PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this Fall.

The developers have made a point to declare that Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’s style is more like the original Trine and Trine 2 rather than the 3D Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power. This makes sense as going for a fully 3D game ended up being more difficult than expected on the development side of things, resulting in Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power being receiving more middlingly than the first two games.

Still, the return to the classic Trine formula doesn’t mean things are more simple; in fact, Frozenbyte and Modus Games are flaunting the game’s improved graphics, puzzles, four player co-op, and a fleshed out combat system, all of which can be seen in action by watching the game’s reveal trailer. As for the story, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince sees series protagonists Amadeus, Zoya, and Pontius searching for the titular Prince Selius as his destructive dreams are leaking into the real world.

For people who want to play the entire series on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Modus Games will actually be releasing Trine: Ultimate Collection this fall. Trine: Ultimate Collection contains all four games in the series, a digital soundtrack, digital art book, a reversible cover, and a map of Trine 4’s world.

You can check out the new trailer highlighting both of them below. Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is set to come to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch sometime in Fall 2019.
