A winter-themed downloadable add-on is coming to Costume Quest at some point in December, a GameSpot-exclusive look has revealed. Grubbins on Ice, as the content is being called, will expand on the game's story, taking place after the events of the RPG, which had you saving your brother or sister from the clutches of the troll-like and candy-obsessed Grubbins.
Grubbins on Ice takes place in a wintry Repugia, an area that game creator Double Fine says is slightly larger than a level in the core game. You'll be plopped into this world during a time of political struggle, one that will conveniently require you to trick-or-treat the area's various houses in order to gather supporters or hurt opposition. A sibling factors into this all as well, but I suggest you check out GameSpot for the full scoop on that.
New costumes and new powers for both battle and world navigation have been confirmed, and as a bonus, Grubbins on Ice will offer fixes for the core game. The text speed will be lowered for us slower folk, select phone posts will become save points, and you'll be able to pause during cut-scenes. Not bad, but it'll cost you an unspecified number of Microsoft Points.
Hey, more Costume Quest! You wanted more, right?
