Trine 2: Complete Story: An Enchanting Fantasy Adventure with Rich Visuals on the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet

Gaming News

Developed by Finnish game studio Frozenbyte Inc., Trine 2: Complete Story on the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet is the definitive version of the acclaimed fantasy-themed platforming adventure.

The game delivers incredible physics-based gameplay and puzzle solving, combined with a gorgeous fantasy world. This makes it the perfect match for the new SHIELD tablet’s immense processing power coupled with the console-caliber controls of the SHIELD wireless controller.

It comes pre-installed on every SHIELD tablet for a reason, as it showcases the graphical might and versatility of the next-gen SHIELD platform. In fact, the Android edition of the game is currently available exclusively on the SHIELD tablet and other Tegra K1-equipped devices.

Trine 2: Complete Story includes the original full PC version of Trine 2 , its Goblin Menace expansion pack, and the unlockable Dwarven Caverns level—available for the first time on Android.

Without question, one of Trine 2’s biggest highlights is its vibrant fantasy settings, which illustrate the developer’s masterful use of color and lighting bolstered by cutting-edge visuals effects.

Leveraging the 192-core NVIDIA Tegra K1 super chip powering the SHIELD tablet, Trine 2 features a slew of high-end graphical flourishes. These include real-time physics, as well as advanced lighting and particle effects that are particularly impressive when casting magical spells.

Trine 2: Complete Story casts players as a trio of heroes—Amadeus the Wizard, Zoya the Thief, and Pontius the Knight—in a storyline that unravels a few years after the conclusion of the first game where the kingdom is restored from evil.

At the beginning of Trine 2, Amadeus is awakened by the ancient and enigmatic Trine artifact, which summons the wizard for a new quest that reunites him with his old allies, Zoya and Pontius.

Just like the original game, each of the characters possesses their own unique abilities and strengths, which you must draw upon to overcome obstacles and progress in the game.

Amadeus, for instance, can magically levitate heavy objects and even create new objects out of thin air. Zoya is equipped with a bow and arrow as well as a grappling hook that can propel her to great heights. Pontius, the brawler of the group, primarily relies on his brute strength as he smashes all enemies in his path with his sword and hammer.

For players who want to really test their puzzle-solving prowess, Trine 2 enables the difficulty level of puzzles to be set at the start of the game. A Hardcore Mode can even be enabled, which ramps up the game’s challenge considerably by limiting resurrection of characters and disabling the ability to save while a mission is in progress.

Trine 2 can be enjoyed a number of ways on the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet. Use the device’s touchscreen controls, prop up the display with the SHIELD cover that doubles as a kickstand and play with the SHIELD wireless controller, or fire up the game on a big high-definition television.

Trine 2: Complete Story on Android is now available only on NVIDIA Tegra K1 devices such as the SHIELD tablet, which is also available for purchase in the United States.

Celebrating the release of Trine 2 on Tegra K1, the game will be available to download from SHIELD Hub for $13.95 until August 5—30% off its regular price.
