Finnish indie studio Frozenbyte has announced that their latest title, Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is coming to PlayStation 4. Console owners won’t have to wait very long for the third entry in the Trine series, as it’s expected to release before the end of the year.
The PlayStation 4 version of Trine 3 will be up to date with the current PC build, and will include the latest level called The Quest for Cake. Like the PC version, gamers can enjoy the gorgeous 3D platformer at a resolution of 1080p, and watch the action unfold at 60 frames-per-second. The game also includes stereoscopic 3D support.
Frozenbye CEO Lauri Hyvärinen was excited to announce the news. “We’re happy to confirm the PS4 version of Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power,” said Lauri. “It’s been a rollercoaster of a year but closing it with the PS4 release gives me great satisfaction.”
The story of Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is told over seven chapters, and allows players to play as three different characters. Each character has their own abilities, and players can choose from Pontius the Knight, Zoya the Thief, and Amadeus the Wizard. Trine 3 supports cooperative play up to three players, so all three characters can see action at the same time.
If you’re wondering why Frozenbyte’s CEO referred to 2015 as a rollercoaster of a year, it’s due to Trine 3 being divisive to the Trine series’ established fan-base. The game marked the series’ move from 2D platforming to full 3D, and reaction was mixed from both critics and fans. Originally an early access title, Trine 3 will be getting a new chance at a first impression on consoles.
While an exact release date and price for the puzzle-platformer was not given, Frozenbyte has said to expect an announcement shortly. Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is currently available on Steam for $21.99, so you can set your expectations accordingly.
