Double Fine has announced a date and price for its Costume Quest DLC, Grubbins on Ice for PSN – and has released it today on XBL.
It will arrive on December 21 for PSN for $4.99 and you can get it today on XBL for 400 MSP. UK PS3 users will get it on December 22.
Announced back in November, Grubbins on Ice continues the story and exploits of twins Wren and Reynold along with their pals Lucy and Everett with a brand-new level, new adventures, new costumes and new characters.
Story: When Lucy gets sucked through a magic portal, she is captured by Araxia, the monster leader who has overthrown the monster elders and is quickly making enemies. Players are taken to Repugia, a warped universe where monsters rule the land. In a twist of fate, the same kids who battled monsters in Costume Quest to save Halloween now find themselves aligned with their former foes to save Lucy against the evil Araxia and restore peace to Repugia.
New costumes in the DLC will have the following special abilities:
- A pirate costume with a zipline ability that allows players to slide down wires using their hook hand
- An eyeball costume that has a zoom-out ability letting players see more of the environment and potentially find secrets
- A Yeti costume with the ability to shield the entire party in battle
New characters include the new boss Araxia, new monsters such as the Repugiarchs, and new non-player characters like neighbors and monsters with unique outfits.
Eight new battle stamps and 18 new Creepy Treat cards will also be included.
