Frozenbyte self-publishing Trine 2: Complete Story on PS4 (update)

Finnish indie developer Frozenbyte will self-publish the Trine 2: Complete Story edition on PlayStation 4, according to a post from developer Kai on the PlayStation Blog.

The side-scrolling action platformer will run at 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second, thanks to the PS4's graphics capabilities, according to Kai's post. Trine 2: Complete Story will also support stereoscopic 3D, allowing players with the right equipment to play the game in 3D. The game will feature its previous' incarnations puzzles and obstacles, and will allow players to participate as one of three classes: a Thief, Wizard or Knight.

Trine 2: Complete Story is an expanded edition of Trine 2 including the Windows PC Goblin Menace expansion and Dwarven Caverns levels previously only available in the Director's Cut Wii U version. The PS4 version of the game will offer 20 levels in total, including the main campaign and the extra content. Complete Story launched in June of this year for Windows PC, and was included as part of the Humble Indie Bundle 9 in September.

Trine 2, the sequel to 2009's Trine, originally launched for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, Windows PC and Mac in Dec. 2011. A Linux version launched in March 2012, and the Director's Cut version was available on the Wii U eShop at the console's launch in November last year. No further details on a release date for Trine 2: Complete Story on PS4 are available at this time, though Kai promised in his post Frozenbyte will be sharing more details soon.

Update: In the comments on the PS Blog post, Frozenbyte's Joel Kinnunen wrote that the game will likely be priced at $19.99 and will launch alongside or shortly after the PS4.

"We hope to be there at launch or very soon after," he said.

Kinnunen also noted that although the developer couldn't find a good use for the DualShock 4 controller's lightbar, the game will make use of its central touchpad. Players using the Wizard class will be able to draw his spells on the pad, "like creating boxes and planks." Integration with the PlayStation Vita is also not supported, but Frozenbyte hasn't ruled it out for the future.
