This Tuesday Sony are releasing the “Fat Roles” add-on pack for the evergreen Fat Princess. The five dollar pack includes three new classes – pirates, ninjas and giants – and, more importantly, a new option to allow up to four players on the same PS3, which will massively improve communications and team planning, something the game has been blighted with since the beginning.
It seems that the new classes will be activated via a ‘multi-class’ spawner, which suggests it’s random which you get, but with the pirates having cannonball attacks, ninjas the ability to hide in the shadows and giants that can cause earthquakes, it probably doesn’t really matter.
The DLC will also be accompanied by a free patch (taking the game to 1.06) which will allow four-player same-console co-operative play, which is a most welcome new feature. Four players will now be able to use the same PS3 in both online and offline games, and the players will also be able to spawn at outposts, creating an almost Battlefield-esque twist to the tactics.
Patch 1.06 also adds clan tags, new Trophies and password protected games, so hopefully we’ll be getting in on the action here at TSA if anyone fancies a game.
