E3 2010: COOPERATIVE PHYSICS-BASED ACTION PLATFORMING GOES ONLINE: ATLUS AND FROZENBYTE ANNOUNCE TRINE 2TM FOR DIGITAL RELEASE IN SPRING 2011
Trine to complete this adventure is more fun if a couple of your friends are trine, too.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 17, 2010 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc., in collaboration with Frozenbyte, today announced Trine 2TM, a high-fantasy, physics-based action platformer with cooperative online multiplayer. The sequel to GameSpot.com's Best Downloadable Game of E3 2009, Trine 2 takes the first game's beloved triad-the powerful knight, the swift rogue, and the crafty wizard-and puts them into an all-new adventure filled with more action, more puzzles, and the introduction of online support for the series's popular cooperative 3-person gameplay.
"The Trine series is a bastion of pure gaming fun," stated Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales for Atlus, "Expanding upon what was considered one of the best cooperative multiplayer experiences in recent memory, Trine 2 introduces online cooperative support for up to three players, dramatically expanding the fun and appeal of the game's spectacularly rich action platforming. In addition, the unique traits and abilities of the three character types in Trine 2 mean more now than ever before, with enhanced skill trees and progression ensuring perfect balance. As a result, the game's new arsenal of thrilling physics-based puzzles delivers just as much challenge and satisfaction for a sole player as for three friends playing together."
Boasting sumptuous visuals, a masterful musical score, 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!

@Moonwalker: The plot of Dark Souls is very simple and straight forward. The lore however, is pretty cool. And it's told with the game, not exposition. (1 Hour ago)
The developer of Lords responds to early previews with new footage [url] (3 Hours ago)
@Megido: Yeah, i wish MS would finally put it on the Marketplace for preload. Goddamn. Maybe this won't become available as preload, then i'll simply have to download it on release day. (3 Hours ago)
Yeah but i dont get one thing. Dark Souls for me barely had a story at all....but ENB seems to think otherwise. I barely recall any story elements in DS. (3 Hours ago)
But it's gonna be interesting to play it next week. Looking forward to it. (3 Hours ago)
