Trine 2 sale on Steam introduces the Hardcore Mode New game mode for extra challenge

Helsinki, Finland - 29 March 2012 - Finnish game developer Frozenbyte is pleased to announce that the popular action adventure game Trine 2 is now on sale on Steam at a 50% discount. The sale lasts until 4/2 Monday 10 AM PST and is also featured in the Mac App Store. Trine 2 has also been updated to version 1.14 in celebration of this sale, and now includes the new Hardcore Mode and several other improvements, including the option to disable the much-debated "self-levitation"?


"The Hardcore Mode is our thanks to our most hardcore fans, and a throwback to the good old days," Frozenbyte CEO Lauri Hyv?rinen says, and continues: "This is for the fans who thought the Tower of Sarek level in the first game was just right in its pre-patches state, for those who really want an extra challenge from the game. The Hardcore Mode adds a big value to replayability, especially in online and offline co-op, and really means you have to work together or face game over."

"P.S. We take no responsibility for broken relationships attributed to the Hardcore Mode."

Trine 2 is available now on Steam for PC/Mac, the Mac App Store, Xbox LIVE? Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and? PlayStation?Network for the PlayStation?3 computer entertainment system.
