We reported earlier about the recent behind the scenes video showcasing Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’s developers hopes to return to form after what is seen as a general misstep in the previous title, Trine 3. Now some on the team have put out some new details about various aspects of the game, and how they hope to achieve that with talking about everything from the game’s length to its difficulty settings.
In a AMA on publisher Modus Games’ Discord, five team members from the games development team answered various questions. In regards to length, they said it would rival Trine 2 and its 6 DLC post-release levels with roughly 8-12 hours depending on the person. As of now there’s no plans to release the game with a Hardcore mode, such as what was added in the original title, but did mention they planned to continue supporting the title post-release so it and other missing features (such as ultrawide support on PC, as well as Editor and Worshop mode) could come later. Finally, the team calmed worries some had about the PC version being a Epic Games Store exclusive, saying the game would release on Steam and possibly GOG.
Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is slated to release later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
