Console Corner: About Trine we got a sequel
With Christmas approaching game releases are slowing down but Trine 3: Artifacts of Power offers something a bit different.
There is also the added bonus that PlayStation Plus members will get a 10% launch discount lasting until January 6.
Trine 3, which was released on Wedneday, is essentially a 3D platforming game set in a beautiful fantasy world of vivid colors.
There is a mixture of puzzles, adventure and action and is a title which really reinforces just how good some of the digital downloads can be.
The gamer has three distinct characters, a Wizard specialised in conjuring boxes and levitation, a stout-hearted Knight with powerful fighting abilities, and an elusive Thief, great at fighting from afar with her bow and at overcoming obstacles with her grappling hook.
Each character will help the gamer in different ways on their journey.
The story starts off with the Heroes growing tired of their duties. They try to return their extraordinary gifts to the Artifact called Trine, and so they meddle with powers beyond their understanding: Trine shatters and a heartless ancient sorcerer escapes.
With only a broken artifact to guide them, the heroes must try and repair the damage they’ve caused… or the damage that might yet be done.
All told the game has 28 trophies, including a Platinum one, so you’ll have a good bit of challenge trying to complete them all.
And there is also an added bonus for 3D TV owners as developer Frozenbyte has continued to support stereoscopic 3D with Trine 3 which gives it an edge on other titles in terms of that unique selling point.
The game features seven story-driven chapters and 11 puzzle-solving, skill-focused Lost Pages and should keep you enterained over Christmas.
There is also a local co-op mode so you can enjoy it with friends.
