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!
I never really understood why people get so bent out of shape over sales. Dreamcast and Sega Genesis are two of my favorite consoles ever. Love my WiiU. Just play games noobs. (25 minutes ago)
I'd like to see uncharted but that won't be this year. And as with every big game thing like E3, i'd love to see last guardian. I suppose that might be a surprise thing for this year...but i doubt it. (37 minutes ago)
I find it hard to believe that Microsoft doesn't have a single title to position as a big holiday release. Sure, it might be Halo 2, but I also (SADLY) half expect that strategy to work. (39 minutes ago)
I have a feeling E3 is going to be more a conveyor of bad news. Like division not coming this year, or destiny delayed until january...just annoying all round. (39 minutes ago)
I think MS will have sunset overdrive, halo 2 and forza horizon (oft rumoured to be 2014) and sony will have the order, last of us, driveclub. I think exclusive wise that'll be it from both. (43 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: yeah, the remake of halo 2...halo 5 ain't this year. I'd be surprised if either have anything to add to this year tbh. (45 minutes ago)
