Trine 2 is an physics-based action platformer that takes the original's beloved triad 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.

Trine 2 takes gamers on another adventure with the powerful knight Pontius, the swift thief Zoya and the crafty wizard Amadeus. The three heroes embark on a new adventure more fantastic than ever, where you will have to survive lethal traps and terrifying monsters, solve many physics-based puzzles and unravel an epic mystery during a challenging campaign that can be played either solo or in co-op with up to 3 players online or offline! Featuring stunningly sumptuous visuals, a masterful original soundtrack, 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!

The Steam version of Trine 2 will support cross-platform multiplayer between PC and Mac thanks to Steam Play. The currently ongoing Trine 2 Beta has been made available for the Mac, making cross-platform multiplayer available right now for gamers who have pre-purchased Trine 2.

"The cross-platform multiplayer between Windows and Mac makes it easier to find people to play with, allowing everyone to enjoy the full co-op potential of the beta and the upcoming game," said Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte.

In addition to the Mac version, the two-level PC beta now also supports NVIDIA 3D Vision. The stereoscopic mode is enabled automatically upon launch of the game. "Trine 2 looks stunning with 3D Vision. We knew it was going to be good but it really caught us by a surprise just how great it looks. Trine 2 has been built in full 3D, and while some of this may go unnoticed when the game is played normally, 3D Vision makes it pop out in a way that is just amazing," concluded Lauri Hyvärinen.
