Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince returns to the series 2.5D roots while reuniting its heroes, Amadeus, Pontius, and Zoya, for a nightmare-infused fairytale adventure. A good dose of platforming is on the way, alongside many physics-based puzzles.
The fourth entry in the series will feature revamped combat. Four-player co-op will also be available for the first time in the series' history.
