A Hat in Time brings DLC expansions to PS4 and Xbox One alongside frame rate upgrade for next-gen consoles


60 Flairs-per-Second

It's been a fair few minutes since we last heard from fun adventure franchise A Hat in Time and its developer, Gears for Breakfast. But the studio has resurfaced to announced that it is finally bringing the 3D platformer's DLC expansions to PS4 and Xbox One, following on from its release on PC and Switch several years ago. Better late than never!

The first expansion, Seal the Deal, includes the new story chapter The Arctic Cruise, six new Time Rifts, a run of new customization items including dyes, flairs, and camera filters, and a new difficulty mode for the most hardened Hat in Time player: Death Wish. The second DLC, Nyakuza Metro, is more of a "goodie pack," featuring 10 new Time Pieces, a new "stickers" customization options, a new Baseball Bat weapon, new badges, and even more flairs, dyes, and camera filters.

In addition to the above expansions, local split-screen co-op multiplayer will be implemented to the title for free. What's more, A Hat in Time is being upgraded for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, and will now run at an improved frame rate of 60FPS. Both the Seal the Deal and Nyakuza Metro expansions will launch on March 31, priced around $5 each.
