Costume Quest Xmas DLC 19 Nov, 2010 / 6 comments

In Double Fine's efforts to replace The Nightmare Before Christmas, their Hallowe'en themed Costume Quest (which we will get round to review, promise!) will be getting a Christmas-themed DLC pack called Grubbins On Ice. GameSpot has the first preview.

I admit I intentionally haven't read too much of that preview (since it clearly says that it has spoilers for people who haven't played the main game), but Double Fine are aiming for around five hours of playtime. No word on the price yet.

This also marks Double Fine's first ever single-player DLC, as they only ever released multiplayer stuff for Brutal Legend. This post also would have marked the first ever time I didn't mention about a game not being on PC, if I hadn't had just done so.

    The DLC for Brutal Legend was not purely multiplayer. There were some extra unlockables for the single player campaign.



    You know exactly what I mean, Mr. Pedant!

    Five hours? I beat Costume Quest in seven hours, I don't think a DLC could be THAT long.
    Anyway, great news! :-)



    Yeah, DF says--apparently--that the DLC will be "a bit longer than a single level in the original game," Which would put it at around 2-3 hours for most players, I'd think.

    That said, Costume Quest is the rare game that makes me want to dive head-first into its kooky little world, so another couple of hours spent running around in there would be just fine by me.

    Excellent. I should have a chance to finally play Costume Quest by the time this is available.
