Xbox One's Chariot Gets DLC Before Other Platforms

The Royal Gadget Pack is available now on Xbox One; presumably coming later to PlayStation, Wii U, and PC.


Canadian developer Frima Studios has released the first DLC for its co-op platformer Chariot. Called the Royal Gadget Pack, the DLC--which adds a new playable character, more items, and achievements--is available now exclusively on Xbox One.

More specifically, the Royal Gadget Pack introduces the "funny and charming" playable character Shopkeeper (for solo and co-op play), 5 new gadgets (including a Shield Bubble and Warp Beacon), and 10 new achievements that Frima describes as "challenging." The DLC also adds the option for you to play as the Skeleton Merchant, something that fans have been asking for since launch, Frima said.

The Royal Gadget Pack is available now on Xbox One for $2.50. A bundle that includes the game and the DLC is also available, priced at $16. Chariot is also available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Wii U, but Frima did not say when or if the Royal Gadget Pack is coming to those platforms.

Chariot tells the story of a princess who is tasked with carrying her father's remains to his final resting place. With the help of her fiance, she takes hold of the chariot and carries the king's remains through underground puzzles to reach a final burial site.

Unfortunately for her, the king's ghost is bound to the chariot and "has quite a temper." The ghosts insists that he be buried with vast riches, so you'll also need to collect loot in the caves. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
