Trine 2 managed to more than live up to its highly regarded predecessor, and so the announcement and subsequent teaser trailer of its upcoming DLC left many somewhat addled with anticipation. Frozenbyte have taken to Gamescom to give us more on what is now known to be named the ‘Goblin Menace’ expansion, and it just so happens to be in the form of an absolutely stunning trailer.
Debuting on Steam this fall before its inclusion in the Trine 2: Director’s Cut for the Wii U this winter, the expansion will bring six new levels and numerous new skills to the game. These as yet unannounced new abilities will also be available within the original campaign, and could perhaps bring a slightly new angle to the much loved levels.
It has been a while since I immersed myself in the world of Trine 2, but it looks ever more incredible than I remember. The Goblin does indeed appear to be a menace, but in spite of his violent nature I can’t help but want to get close to him and stare longingly at his textures. I suppose if I did that I would miss out on the rest of the world which, as the video below undeniably demonstrates, would be absolutely unforgivable.
