Finnish game developer Frozenbyte has announced the release of a free DLC level to Trine, its award-winning action-platformer.

The free DLC level, "Path to New Dawn", is now available on Steam and will be released shortly for other PC distribution platforms. In celebration of the DLC release, Trine is being offered at 75% off its asking price through April 26 - it's a snip at £4.25.

"We are extremely happy to release this free level. It is our way of saying thanks to our fans and giving back to everyone who has bought Trine," said Lauri Hyvärinen, Frozenbyte CEO. "As a company, we've had an interesting journey getting this far. I'm sure the path ahead is also full of dangers and traps but we'll do our best to avoid them and continue to bring great experiences to gamers. We've been delighted that so many players have enjoyed Trine so far, and I hope this free level adds a little bit to that enjoyment!"

Path to New Dawn is a unique level with new visuals and challenging gameplay, especially on Very Hard difficulty setting. It also features 10 special items for the player to collect. The level is unlocked and available in the Select level menu once the game has been completed.

The free DLC is part of Patch 1.07, which also includes a couple of minor additions to the game, such as visible experience bottle information in the Inventory menu for treasure hunters.
