Chariot is Now Available for Xbox One (and free for Xbox Live Gold members)

ChariotContent: Chariot
Check price and availability in your Xbox LIVE region

Game Description: Chariot is a humorous, physics-based couch co-op platformer in which a brave Princess and her Fiancé carry a funeral wagon through ancient caves, fending off swarms of looters while amassing riches, to bury the King’s remains in a worthy, gold-filled tomb. If only his majesty would keep quiet… The chariot’s large wheels and long tethers allow the heroes to reach higher ground, swing across chasms and perform all sorts of impressive maneuvers. Extract riches from the very walls of the caves in multiple environments, and make your way to the exit by avoiding – or beating back – greedy looters as they attempt to steal your hard-earned loot! With skill-testing coordination mechanics and thrilling physics-based stunts required, Chariot will definitely please couch co-op enthusiasts as teamwork and cooperation unlock new possibilities.

Purchase Chariot from the Xbox Games Store

Note:  Chariot will debut on Xbox One as a free download as part of October’s Games with Gold.

Here’s a note from Chariot’s developer, Frima:

Grab a seat with a gaming pal and prepare to laugh a lot as you’ll work together to find the king’s final resting place and collect precious gems. High-Fives will be in order.

On behalf of the entire team, we hope you have as much fun playing Chariot as we do.
