Co-op platformer Chariot rolls out on PS4 next month

Frima Studio’s unique adventure debuts on 22nd October

It’s been a long ride, but the royal chariot is finally ready to roll. Since we first unveiled it at this year’s E3, hundreds of players have had the opportunity to take Chariot out for a spin and give us some feedback.

One question kept coming back: “When is it gonna come out on PS4?” Well, today we’re happy to announce that PS4 owners in the SCEE region will be able to experience Chariot’s unique co-op platforming and spelunking goodness on Wednesday, 22nd October.

You’ve never heard of Chariot, you say? That’s alright. We’ll sum it up for you:
Chariot is a co-op platformer where two players have to work together using physics-based mechanics, like pushing and pulling, to bring His Majesty’s royal coffin to his final resting place. Since the king’s ghost is picky (to say the least) regarding where and how he expects to be buried, this won’t be an easy task. Along the way, the princess and her fiancé will have to gather gold and precious gems to decorate the sepulcher.

We love that local multiplayer games are making a comeback, but we wanted to stray from the competitive game model and make one that focused on cooperation. That being said, the game can be enjoyed and finished by playing solo, but steel yourself, because some of the challenges will require an enormous amount of creativity on your part if you decide to go it alone.

  • Three weeks after the US release? *sadface*

    Looking forward to this though, it looks like a game where co-op really makes sense and is used in creative ways. What kind of price are we looking at here?

  • This needs to be released on VITA!

  • Co-op with Vita & PS4 – epic!

  • It’s a shame about the three week delay in Europe but I know it’ll be worth the wait! The art style looks gorgeous and I’m really impressed with the voice acting.

    Does the game have online co-op or is it purely local?

  • We decided to go with local multiplayer only for a couple of reasons. The direct communication is very important in the game as you will need to strategize and point at the screen a lot while playing co-op. Also, the tricks you’ll need to do with the Chariot requires a lot of precision and we felt that precision might be lost because of the latency online.

  • real sore about the disparity in release dates. scee amd scea need to sort it out amd have some sort of joint cert process. if the game is read in english, release it in english in english-speaking territories with a disclaimer for those who don’t speak the language.

    no matter, i may buy it from the us store next week

  • Really hoping that both players can get trophies on this one and not just player 1. The ps4 now supports psn logins on each controller so each player should get trophies.

  • My GF loves this sort of physics based co-op tomfoolery, count us in :D

  • just another 5 minute wonder indie game on the so called next gen PS4 console why launch a more powerful console just to play the never ending 80,s games

  • I am so glad this is coming to PS4, I played it for a good few hours on my friends XBO. I think it’s one of the best co-op games I’ve played in a long time, I can appreciate why it’s local co-op, you really need to discuss the plan of action.

    It’s great to see so many indie titles bringing new IP to the gamer and as for AAA titles there are plenty coming very soon as I know there are many complaints that there is only indies on PS4.

    I just want to say WELL DONE to the team behind this – it plays and looks great!

    A lot of people don’t appreciate how much time, effort and passion goes into creating a game and then want it for free, developers need to earn a living too.
