Trine 2 due out on PC/Mac December 7

Trine 2, the sequel to Frozenbyte’s 2009 physics-based puzzle platformer, was finally given a release date today. The developer announced that Trine 2 will release on PC and Mac on December 7, just two days away from now.

The console version of Trine 2 will release a couple weeks later on December 20 for the PlayStation Network, and a day later on Xbox Live. Linux users, on the other hand, will have to wait until an undisclosed point in 2012 to get their hands on the game.

“FINALLY!” says Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte in a press release. He continues: “Alas, fans will have to wait a little longer for the console versions. Trine 2 will be available in North America for PlayStation 3 system via PlayStation®Network on December 20, and worldwide for Xbox 360 system via Xbox LIVE Marketplace on December 21.

“A European release date for the PS3 system version of Trine 2 is still awaiting confirmation but we hope it won’t be far behind if delayed at all. The console releases might be arriving a bit later, but they are still in time for the holidays!”

Trine 2 is available to pre-order right now on Steam, GamersGate, and Direct2Drive for $14.99 / €12.99. A collector’s edition is also available for $24.99 / €$19.99 – it includes a digital artbook with developer commentary and the original soundtrack. A retail version of the collector’s edition will also be available, which includes a physical version of the artbook along with the soundtrack.
