CELEBRATED WITH -50% WEEKEND SALE
Helsinki, Finland – 5th of November 2015
Frozenbyte has announced a free content update to the physics-based platformer Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power , originally released in August this year.
The update will roll out on Steam, GOG and Humble Store on the 5th of November and includes a free new level, as well as official support for SteamOS and Linux. Also included are various minor fixes and improvements, such as mid-level checkpoints for the Lost Page levels.
The new level is a mini adventure featuring the three heroes and their (or mainly Pontius’s) desire for some food – a cake, no less! As a response to fan feedback, the adventure is set in the Book theme that many fans fell in love with.
Frozenbyte CEO Lauri Hyvärinen commented: “This is a free update that we felt inclined to do for our fans. We would love to continue with the Trine series and this is our first tentative step in that direction, hopefully the first of many.”
A video has been posted on YouTube, where glimpses of the updated content can be seen:
Included in the November 5th update are the following:

About Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power
Experience a fairytale world of breathtaking sceneries and face a myriad of physics-based puzzles, wonderful contraptions, dangerous foes and enchanting creatures.
Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is a platforming game of action, puzzles and adventure, and the sequel to the award winning Trine and Trine 2. Reunite with the familiar heroes – Pontius the Knight, Amadeus the Wizard and Zoya the Thief in an all-new adventure, now for the first time in full 3D!
Playable in single-player or in co-up with up to three players, both locally or online.
Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief have slowly come to the conclusion that having their lives commandeered by a powerful magical artifact is not a desirable state of existence on a permanent basis.
The heroes try to return their extraordinary gifts to the Artifact called Trine, and so they meddle with powers beyond their understanding: Trine shatters, and a heartless ancient sorcerer escapes. With only a broken artifact to guide them, the heroes must try and repair the damage they’ve caused… or the damage that might yet be done.
- Online and Local Co-op
Up to three players can play online and local co-up. Any mix is possible (for example 2 local, 1 online) and you can switch from singleplayer to multiplayer and vice versa. Play with your Steam friends and explore the secrets together!
