Quebec, Canada – September 22th, 2015 – With the upcoming first anniversary of the release of its couch co-op platformer, Chariot, on Xbox One, independent developer FRIMA Studios celebrated with the release of Chariot’s debut DLC – the Royal Gadget Pack. Now available on Xbox One, the Royal Gadget Pack includes a new playable character: the funny and charming Shopkeeper, 5 new gadgets, including Shield Bubble and Warp Beacon, and 10 challenging new achievements.
“The Royal Gadget Pack brings a whole new level of Chariot shenanigans to both solo and co-op players,” said Martin Brouard, Executive Producer at Frima Studios. “Some of these gadgets will delight the speedrunning community, while others will make some of the harder levels somewhat easier for less experienced players. We’ve also added the option to play as the Skeleton Merchant, which is something that many fans have been asking for since our 2014 launch.”
The Royal Gadget Pack stars the Shopkeeper, now a playable character that can join both solo and co-op games. For the first time, Chariot introduces awesome new technology delivered straight from the royal engineers’ workshop in the form of five new gadgets. Walk on ice, light up the darkness, swim in lava, freeze the world, teleport the Chariot through time and space, and much more! Also included are new achievements and blueprints hidden throughout existing levels. Help His Downloadable Majesty to rest in peace already!
