Finnish game developer Frozenbyte has announced that Trine 2 is available now for Linux in a beta form, with the regular edition priced at $14.99 and the Collector's Edition at $24.99. The Collector's Edition includes a digital artbook and the original soundtrack by the composer Ari Pulkkinen.
The Linux version of Trine 2 includes all the features available in the game, including online co-op. Once the game moves out of the beta phase, the Linux version will also be able to play multiplayer with Mac users. A variety of recent distributions are supported, including Ubuntu 10.10/11.04/11.10, Fedora 16, OpenSUSE 12.1 and Linux Mint 12. Other distributions could work as well but may require additional library installations manually. The Linux version will also come to other distribution channels later in the year, including Desura and Gameolith.
