Trine 2 Release Date Announced; Collector’s Edition coming in UK & Ireland by Lace Mamba

Lace Mamba Global is going to publish the PC/Mac retail Collector’s Edition of the upcoming high-fantasy, physics-based action platformer Trine 2 in the UK and Ireland. Trine 2 is scheduled hit the retail shelves on December 09th, 2011. Publishers Lace Mamba Global and Focus Home Entertainment recently signed an according agreement.
The boxed hybrid PC/Mac Collector’s Edition includes full versions of both games – a Steam digital copy of the first Trine game and Trine 2 on DVD-ROM – as well as an artbook and a soundtrack CD.
Trine 2 takes the first game’s beloved triad-the powerful knight, the swift rogue and the crafty wizard – and puts them into an all-new adventure filled with more action, more puzzles and the introduction of online support of the series’ popular cooperative 3-person gameplay. Boasting sumptuous visuals, a masterful musical score by AriTunes, and clever physics-based gameplay, Trine 2 is the perfect mix of old-school platforming action, original physics-based level design, and cooperative multiplayer fun.
Players choose between 3 character classes – Zoya, the Rogue, Amadeus, the Wizard, and Pontius, the Warrior – and can instantly swap between them to solve the game’s puzzles, using each character’s abilities. Each level offers many different approaches and solutions.
Each of the 23 levels in the game is designed to be a fairy tale coming alive, with beautiful, detailed graphics, creating a colourful medieval fantasy world and lush orchestral themes composed and recorded by Ari Pulkkinen and his team at the award-winning studio AriTunes.
Trine 2 also offers online and LAN co-op modes for up to three players, giving them the possibility to even increase the number of possible solutions to each level by combining the powers of their characters.
Trine 2’s digital version is slated for a December 6th release.
