    The latest trailer reveals more details about Pontius the Knight, one of the characters you can take control of in Trine 5. He can utilize a shield and sword, a charge attack, and a Talisman that allows him to clone himself for puzzle assistance. Expect more trailers about the game’s other main characters before Trine 5‘s release.

    The official Steam page of Trine 5 describes it as a 2.5D platformer adventurer with 1-4 player single-player, local, and online co-op modes. You can take control of Zoya the Thief, Amadeus the Wizard, and Pontius the Knight as you go on a daring adventure across a beautiful fantasy world. The game will also feature accessibility options, customizable outfits, a “fairytale soundtrack,” and a thrilling story that puts the other games before it to shame.

    Trine is a franchise that has always been focused on cooperative 2D exploration and action. There have always been three character archetypes: a thief, a wizard, and a knight. Each character has its own playstyle and move set, making later playthroughs unique. Trine 5 looks to be an exciting new entry into the franchise that takes elements from all prior games. For those who haven’t played the last games, however, don’t fret. All previous games are currently discounted on Steam for about $17 for a limited time. Experience the universe of Trine before the fifth installment in the saga arrives.

    Lastly, Trine 5: A Clockwork Conspiracy will release on August 31 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
