An introduction to the three heroes of the iconic puzzle-platforming series
I am super excited to announce that not only is Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince coming to PlayStation 4 on 8th October, but Trine: Ultimate Collection will also be available on the same day so you can enjoy the entire Trine series in one convenient bundle!
The fantasy land of Trine is teeming with obstacles from menacing monsters to impassable terrain. In order to conquer these challenges, you will control the three heroes Amadeus the Wizard, Zoya the Thief, and Pontius the Knight, each with their own unique abilities, weapons, and tools.
Freely switch between the characters on-the-fly to adapt to each situation or combine their skills in up to four-player coop in the biggest Trine experience to date.
Whether it’s your first venture into the Trine series or you’re returning for the newest installment in the beloved series, there’s a lot to discover about our heroes and the new abilities available to them in Trine 4.
Amadeus is a talented wizard capable of levitating objects around the world and materializing platforms, boxes, and durable steel balls which he can use to overcome obstacles. As you improve, so does Amadeus, learning skills such as a horizontal throw or a dangerous box stomp to take out enemies or act as a tool to solve puzzles.
The determined magician is a perfect fit for you if you thrive on thinking through challenges and want the versatility to protect your team with conjured objects, disable enemies with levitation, or to send objects and enemies alike flying.
Zoya is a highly skilled thief who lets actions speak louder than words. The quietest of the bunch, her accuracy with a bow combined with the mobility of a grappling hook makes her an invaluable asset for traversing the world of Trine.
Throughout the adventure Zoya’s toolset will only grow more robust, introducing fire and ice arrows that can freeze enemies and objects or set them ablaze for bonus damage, a combat roll to evade damage as well as a Fairy Rope that can make everything from objects to enemies float.
Zoya’s grappling hook enables her to create tightropes that allies can walk across and act as a tether to hold objects in place, while her arrows are able to hit hard-to-reach objects and enemies.
Zoya’s designed for players who want a little of everything – distinct skills that provide support, tools that allow players to bypass hazards, and ranged attacks to damage enemies in combat.
Pontius is a loyal janitor turned knight whose sword and shield make him a formidable force in combat and handy in overcoming obstacles. Whether he’s running atop oversized pumpkins or bouncing off huge sea creatures, he goes where his unwavering sense of duty summons him.
He can use his sword to unleash a flurry of attacks that can carve a path through enemies while his shield can block incoming damage, reflect projectiles, and create a platform for his partners to hop across.
Pontius has a bit more utility in puzzle solving this time around – he can create a copy of his shield using the new Dream Shield ability. This magical blockade will deflect enemies, projectiles and objects alike.
Pontius might be for you if you prefer to force your way through a locked door or charge head first into a volley of arrows to close the distance rather than taking a strategic approach to engagements.
Each hero has their own strengths and weaknesses, and you’ll need to utilize every tool and weapon in your arsenal to overcome the encroaching dangers present in the world of Trine. Whether you choose to brave the journey alone or in up to four-player co-op, you will be able to switch between the trio on-the-fly as the situation demands.
Amadeus, Zoya, and Pontius won’t be able to complete the quest alone, so you’ll need to combine their abilities to progress — using Zoya’s rope with Amadeus’ magical box to create a hanging platform, reflecting Zoya’s ice arrows off multiple copies of Pontius’ Dream Shield to hit an enemy in a hard to reach place, or suspending an enemy in air with the Fairy Rope only to cause them to come crashing down from an impact from a zooming steel ball — the possibilities are limitless.
