Trine 2 half-off, Hardcore Mode out

Another weekend sale to take advantage of; Frozenbyte has cut the price of Trine 2 by 50 percent on Steam.

To make taking the plunge even sweeter, the developer has released a fresh patch that adds a new Hardcore Mode and “several other improvements.” Just one of said improvements is described though: the “self-levitation” trick can now be disabled.

“The Hardcore Mode is our thanks to our most hardcore fans, and a throwback to the good old days,” Frozenbyte CEO Lauri Hyv√§rinen says.

“This is for the fans who thought the Tower of Sarek level in the first game was just right in its pre-patches state, for those who really want an extra challenge from the game. The Hardcore Mode adds a big value to replayability, especially in online and offline co-op, and really means you have to work together or face game over.”

The sale lasts until Monday, 10 AM PST. It applies to the Mac App Store as well.
