As if we needed another reason to play Moving Out again. This wonderful party game was one of 2020’s best co-op games, and it has received a chunk of DLC today, all themed around the very thing that none of us can have: a tropical getaway. Moving Out – Movers in Paradise DLC is out now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Switch and PC.
There’s typical Team17 contrariness in releasing such a sunkissed epilogue to their game in the tail-end of winter, too. We’re all over it, and it’s the kind of escapism that we could do with. It’s also cracking to see Moving Out receiving the same kind of aftercare and love that Overcooked! 1 and Overcooked! 2 received over the years, culminating in the Overcooked! All You Can Eat Edition.
So, what do you get in the DLC? There are fourteen new story levels, separate from the main game story, with four new movers available for you to play. The likes of…
- Tooki: Movers of a feather flock together! That’s Tooki’s motto. Always taking on new recruits under her wing, Tooki brings the team to new heights. Just be careful when she invites you out to lunch; her bill is always enormous!
- Coco: Coco is one tough nut to crack. Raised in a family of fifty noisy brothers, he enjoys a quiet evening alone on the beach with nothing but his thoughts and stamp collection. But get Coco talking about tropical furniture and he’ll open right up!
- Gilly: There are plenty of fish in the sea, but none are quite as bubbly as Gilly! Born into royalty, she escaped her family’s sandcastle to live out her dreams as a furniture mover. Well, that’s what she tells everyone around the water cooler. Though the tale does sound a bit fishy…
- Clawdius: This busy little administrator loves filling out paperwork and signing forms, but when there’s boxes to move in a pinch, Clawdius will scuttle right to the forefront! You can find him at night naming all the constellations.
Ten new arcade levels are also supplied. It’s a small but welcome injection of new content to what was already a fun package, and we’re just happy to return to play it again.
On a broader note, Team17 are busy at the moment, with Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos due imminently, and the under-rated Going Under receiving DLC too. March 30th sees the launch of their retro-arcade title Narita Boy. Something is in the water over at Team17, and lockdown clearly isn’t affecting them particularly.
The Moving Out: Movers in Paradise DLC is not free, but not expensive either. It is out now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S and starts at £5.99 from the Xbox Store. It’s also out on PS4, PS5, Switch and PC.
