Preview: Trine 5 takes you on the series’ longest adventure on PS5, PS4



The Trine series has been around for nearly 15 years, releasing four beautiful puzzle platformers of varying quality in that time. The third game attempted to bring the beloved character-swapping action to a 3D plane. When that didn’t work, the follow-up reverted to the side-scrolling action beloved by fans, and all was right with the world. Today, developer Frozenbyte has announced the next installment, Trine 5: A Clockwork Conspiracy, and it looks to deliver more of that comfortingly familiar gameplay.

Telling a new story, our usual band of heroes — Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief — are under threat from an army of Clockwork Knights built to eliminate the trio. A malevolent queen wants to undo her chivalry once and for all, and it’s up to you – and, optionally, some supportive friends – to stop that from happening. Of course, the story is mostly background to allow for a more awesome, physics-based adventure, and Trine 5 has that in spades.
