Trine 2 'Goblin Menace' expansion coming this September 6th, beta version available to Collector's Edition owners pre-launch
Frozenbyte has announced that an expansion for its action adventure game 'Trine 2' will be available on Steam (PC/Mac) this September 6th. Trine 2: Goblin Menace features an all-new campaign spanning six unique levels and new skills that are also playable in the original game.
In preparation for the Goblin Menace expansion, Trine 2 on Steam has been updated with a major 2 GB patch to make sure the game and the new expansion work together in multiplayer. Some of this work is still ongoing and will bring many long-requested features to all Trine 2 players, including an arrow indicator of other players location in multiplayer, lots of minor gameplay changes and additions and technical fixes.
Moreover, current Trine 2: Collector's Edition owners on Steam get immediate access to a beta version of Goblin Menace, featuring the first two levels. Once the Goblin Menace expansion is available for purchase on September 6th, the beta will end.
"We wanted to give our loyal fans something extra and also get some early feedback before the official launch. The Goblin Menace is compatible with the original Trine 2 in multiplayer, and this is one of the areas we want to focus on during the beta test. We've been working on the Goblin Menace for almost a year and are very proud of it. We can't wait for all the feedback!" said Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte.
Trine 2: Goblin Menace will cost $7.99/6.99 EUR, with a small launch discount for early buyers on Steam. The expansion is first released for PC and Mac, and will then soon be released on the Mac App Store, and on Linux.
Trine 2: Goblin Menace will also be included in Trine 2: Director's Cut for Nintendo's Wii U. The Director's Cut also includes a number of enhancements to the original game and Wii U exclusive features. More information, including pricing and release date, will be announced later.
