Are you ready for more Trine? Frozenbyte is working on a significant expansion pack to Trine 2. And although it is technically downloadable content, the scope of the project has the developer hesitant to call it "DLC."

Coming later this year (before Summer, the delay-prone developer hopes) is a as-of-yet unnamed expansion that will add a brand new six level campaign, with new enemies and a new story. Best of all, the three heroes of Trine will be granted new abilities that carry over into the original Trine 2.

The publicly-released teaser for the expansion showcases the new environments being developed for the expansion pack:

Unfortunately, Frozenbyte isn't showing off the abilities that we saw in a private meeting with the developer. Perhaps the most significant change involves a "gravity bubble" the Wizard can use. By summoning one, the effect of gravity is significantly reduced inside the bubble, allowing players to suspend objects in air, and increase their jumps. (As if the Wizard weren't powerful enough already!) And because this ability can be transported back into the original Trine 2, expect to get through levels in a completely new way.

Frozenbyte wouldn't commit to a price for the expansion pack, but did note that it will be "very reasonable."

      Gonna be an instant buy. But they should disallow the self/co-op player floating trick. We had to make up an artificial rule not to use it, in order not to break the game.

      Not sure what to expect.... Am I the only one who prefers the original Trine to Trine 2? Trine 2 has too many puzzles they break the game dynamic. Trine is charming, Trine 2 is well, frustrating at times. Probably I'm too dumb for the puzzles but I expect more of a platform game than a puzzle game.

        Trine and Trine 2 are supposed to be just as much puzzlers as they are platformers, if not more so.

        The physics was so much better in Trine 2 though. Especially with the wizard telekinesis and hit detection.
