You may think that it’s just a story about two heroes, but the latest trailer for Troll and I highlights how the relationship between them both grows and evolves throughout their journey.
Maximum Games have today released a brand new trailer for Troll and I and in it, you get to see how things work out between the two heroes, Otto and Troll.
Taking place in the majestic mountains and lush forests of post-World War II, 1950’s-era Scandinavia, Troll and I follows the adventure of a teenage boy and the unlikely friendship he develops with a massive, mythical Troll. Though Otto moved to the backwoods with his family to live in harmony with nature, he now finds himself at the mercy of the unforgiving wilderness, ripped from his village when ruthless hunters looking for Troll destroy his home. Now with a bounty on his head, and forced into hiding to survive, Otto encounters and befriends Troll, an elusive creature of folklore and legend who has managed to stay hidden from the world…until now. Thrown together by circumstances out of their control, two stories of desperate survival become one.
Humans aren’t the only adversaries this duo will face off against during their journey. The hunters, in pursuit of their prize, have unwittingly awakened ancient evils from the depths of the earth, vicious kobolds and worse. Otto and Troll must work together, using their respective strengths and inherent skills to complement each other’s weaknesses if they are to survive the dire circumstances they find themselves in. No matter the unpredictable challenges they may face, be it supernatural or of this world, Otto and Troll have each other’s backs and will face them, together.
It also features a combat system that allows contrasting abilities for each character. You see, Troll and his highly damaging attacks can crush enemies in one blow while Otto needs to utilise quicker, nimbler moves. Troll and Otto can also cohesively act as one to fight off rivals, solve puzzles and complete missions. Each employs their own distinct presence and gameplay functionality.
Cooperative split-screen multiplayer will allow you to play locally with a friend, and it is this teamwork which is absolutely pivotal to staying alive. With a dynamic duo like Otto and Troll, the local co-op feature allows for shared collaboration between two gamers, creating an experience equally captivating for both players.
Troll and I will release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on March 21st 2017 in North America, with a European release a couple of days later on the 24th.
