Trine 2 gets cross-platform play on PC and Mac

Can turtlenecks and pocket protectors get along? Developer Frozenbyte is going to find out with the upcoming Steamworks release of Trine 2. The co-op platforming sequel will support cross-platform multiplayer across PC and Mac, and you'll be able to test that feature right now with a newly-released Mac beta, available for everyone that pre-orders the game.

"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 a press release.

Trine 2 will be available later this year on PC, Mac, PS3 and Xbox Live Arcade for $14.99 (1200 Microsoft Points). The Steamworks version will include achievements and support for the Steam Cloud; a DRM-free version of Trine 2 will be available in 2012.
