The Trine 5: A Clockwork Conspiracy team has recently launched Update #2 with it a whole bunch of bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements. While its name and contents might seem quite unassuming, Update #2 is actually rather significant as it also brings with it a highly important and often requested feature - crossplay!

Thanks to Update #2 you're now able to join games and play together with your friends regardless of which PC storefront or console they might have the game on. And in order to make sure private games can function under the new system, consoles have also been given a virtual keyboard to facilitate password input. It's a little bit clunky, but it sure beats having random people barge in!

s for whether Trine 5 is worth the trouble, I'd say the answer is an easy yes if you're a fan of puzzly action-adventures. It's quite likely the best game in the series, and definitely the longest, so if you have a couple of friends willing to dive in with you, chances are you'll have a blast. Just don't take things too seriously as Trine 5 is at its best when all your carefully laid out plans fall apart in hilarious fashion.

My little musings aside, you can get a pretty good idea of what Trine 5 and its gameplay are all about through the trailer below. Have a peek:

You can learn more about Update #2, as well as Trine 5 in general, over at Steam. Enjoy the chaos!
