Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince hits consoles and PC this fall

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is the next entry in the puzzle-solving franchise.


Frozenbyte and Modus Games are bringing gamers the fourth entry in the long-running adventure platformer series Trine with Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.

The latest entry in the Trine series will follow Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya once more as they work to find Prince Selius. The Astral Academy wants the three unique heroes to help out as much as possible to bring him back. Meanwhile, his dark nightmares have begun slipping into reality and damaging the real world. This means the game is rife with challenging boss fights, puzzles, and plenty of challenging obstacles to overcome if you want to make it to the end.

Luckily, there are also new skills, vibrant environments, and a new soundtrack to bring it all together, as well as four-player co-op for the first time in the series ever.

Trine 4 will be coming out this fall alongside Trine: Ultimate Collection, which gathers together Trine: Enchanted Edition, Trine 2: Complete Story, Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, and Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince as a standalone release. It will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC as both physical and digital editions.

If you preorder the game, you'll be able to take home a Trine 4 cloth poster and smattering of in-game content. Buying the Trine: Ultimate Collection at retail will net you an original soundtrack, digital art book, collector's reversible cover sheet, and a physical world map. Buying Trine 4 at retail will net you Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince (of course) and a physical Trine 4 world map.

There's a lot to look forward to here with the upcoming debut of the fourth Trine game, but if you haven't already experienced the series, it's absolutely worth tearing into, especially now that all the games are handily collected in one place.
