PS4 Gets Another Indie Hit With Trine 2: Complete StoryBy: Zach Walton - October 28, 2013
Earlier this month, Sony announced that it would be updating four of its PS3/PS Vita indie hits for the PS4 in 1080p at 60FPS. At the time, I pondered if more developers would update their existing PS3 titles for the PS4. It seems that the guys at Frozenbyte pondered the same thing and decided to act upon it.
Frozenbyte announced today on the PlayStation Blog that it’s bringing Trine 2: Complete Story to the PS4 in 2014. Trine 2 launched on the PS3 in 2011, and received an update called Goblin Menace in 2012. So, what does the Complete Story add to the game? It’s everything that came with Trine 2: Director’s Cut on the Wii U, but with updated graphics to take advantage of the PS4’s capabilities.
Interestingly enough, Frozenbyte notes that it’s self-publishing Trine 2: Complete Story on the PS4. This is only the third time the company has been able to do so as Atlus published the original Trine 2 on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Aside from 1080p visuals and 60FPS gameplay, Frozenbyte says that Trine 2: Complete Story for PS4 will support stereoscopic 3D for those who have 3D displays. It’s not yet known, however, if Trine 2: Complete Story on the PS4 will support Cross Buy for those who purchased the original Trine 2 on the PS3.
With Frozenbyte bringing Trine 2 to the PS4, I think we can safely say that we’re on our way to a trend. Indie developers may very well start remaking their previous PS3 indie hits for the PS4 with improved visuals and smoother gameplay. It’s definitely a smart move, but it’s hard to say if major publishers will do the same thing. It would be kind of weird to see an Assassin’s Creed collection on the PS4 with the improved visuals from the PC versions, but it’s not out of the question.[Image: PlayStation Blog]
