updated 03:00 am EST, Thu November 24, 2011

Steam version offers cross-platform multiplayer

The sequel to the successful video game, Trine 2, is nearing release and the ongoing beta is now available for Mac players who have pre-purchased the game, allowing cross-platform multiplayer adventures to be available immediately. The game features side-scrolling adventuring and physics challenges in a dungeon-crawl motif with exceptional graphics, even available in 3D on some systems.

The Windows version of the beta now supports Nvidia's 3D Vision, a stereo-scopic 3D mode that is enable automatically if the system supports on launch. The game is available for pre-purchase on Steam and GamersGate and will soon be available through other channels, including Direct2Drive. When it is formally released, the game will also be available in a special Collector's Edition DVD, which includes a digital artbook with commentary and the original soundtrack. The company says it will also make a DRM-free version of the game available early next year.

Players play as one of three heroes fighting their way through a fairytale environment to save a village, utilizing an artifact known as the Trine to allow characters to swap places for maximum advantage. The game combines action, platforming and physics puzzles using gravity, magic, fire and water to make progress.

Trine 2 will be released n Steam for PC and Mac, in the Mac App Store and for both platforms in Europe via retail channels. It will also be available for the Xbox and PlayStation 3. A Linux release and the possibility of other platforms is also being explored.
