A Holiday Gift to All Folklore Fans!

Eric Fong's Avatar + Posted by Eric Fong on Dec 19, 2007 // Associate Producer, Santa Monica Studio

To celebrate the holiday season, I’m happy to announce that we will be releasing a free holiday-themed Folklore add-on pack this week on the PlayStation Network!

The pack will come with 2 new winter outfits for our heroes Ellen and Keats, a new quest to play with Keats called “Holy Night Visitor”, and a brand new Folk for your collection called “Grab Bag” who you have got to play to believe.

Ellen is sure to get Mrs. Claus jealous with her sweet red snow-bunny outfit complete with the earmuffs.

Keats will sport a slick white trench, festive beanie, and if you can believe it, a holiday sweater. (Keats is the only person that could make a reindeer sweater look good.)

Keats will have his hands full this holiday in the new quest you can play.

The new Folk, Grab Bag, will take his enemies down by spreading holiday cheer!

This is a thank you from the developers at Game Republic and from us at SCEA for all you Folklore supporters out there. Be on the look out for more great Folklore content in 2008.

Have a happy holiday and a great New Year!

cool. My friend who has Folklore will be pleased. :)

Sony- can we get GT5 Prologue demo as a freebie Christmas gift this year? It would be a nice pattern to follow from last year’s GTHD gift. Please?

Thanks so much for the freebie guys, especially since it’s furthering all of the goodies going around like firmware updates and game patches/expansions.

Also, a personal thanks for keeping the pack (seemingly)P.C.

That way everyone can enjoy! :)

An update for F@H, PS3, PSP, and Warhawk, and now a free Folklore add-on!? You really do love us don’t you? (In a platonic way- don’t get any ideas. :P )

Nice work guys, thanks.

+ juanleche on December 19th, 2007 at 12:58 pm said:

It would be even cooler if you added 1080 scaling to folklor so that we all could play this game in HD on our HDTVs


25

+ leetfoo on December 19th, 2007 at 1:06 pm said:

@24 juan
Indeed… I was really excited about this game until I saw that it would only run in 480p on my 1080i TV. Low-def, no thanks, not this gen.


26

+ nmc75 on December 19th, 2007 at 1:07 pm said:

#24, I think 720p is considered HD. Maybe your TV doesn’t do 720p?

It keeps the games fun and fresh! :)

It’s bizarre how this game be packed with so many great character designs when so few games can barely create one memorable one.

Cheers for this.

oh btw, shut up about in-game xmb, they already said they’re working on it. Do any of you keep up with the news? Geezes, someone ban people that mention “in, game, and xmb” in any combination

@bunnyhero/darkiewonder (#13/#20) – I just talked to the Store folks: once it’s up, the Folklore Christmas pack will be up for roughly a few months. So don’t worry if you can’t get to it in the next couple of weeks – but don’t expect it to be there this summer or anything.

+ The Souljourner on December 19th, 2007 at 1:51 pm said:

That’s really fantastic. I’m really happy to see development studios putting out free DLC in this era of micropayments. It’s really good for fan relations and not too bad advertisement either.

+ Carl on December 19th, 2007 at 1:52 pm said:

Thanks, you guys are the best.

This pack came out last week here in Europe, and i downloaderd it straight away. Ellen looks very cute in her new outfit, i must say :P She now rivals Nariko lol.

Thanks to everyone at Game Republic for making such a great game.

Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope Santa brings you what you want (as if he ever does lol)

Thank you Game Republic and Sony. If one game was worth the price of the PS3, Folklore is definitely it. Can anyone tell me if a sequel or a next installment is going to be in the series? I’m really hoping for a sequel. Such great art direction in Folklore. I hope this game sold well, I hate for this game to be unappreciated and overlooked.

Mr. Jeff Rubenstein, do you have any idea if a possible sequel/next installment has been considered to Folklore? Thanks.

@edwardelric85 (#40) – haven’t heard anything about a sequel, but personally, I hope so too. If anything were ever to be announced, you’d read it here on the Blog.

I believe you can download the holiday pack before purchasing the game – it should show up as an installable package file.

leetfoo – the game definately runs at 720p. Are all your games running at 480?

I play Folklore on my 720p 121″ front projector and it looks great… wonder if there’s a way for me to post pics…

Also, if you guys aren’t playing in 5.1 audio, definately check it out – really makes a huge difference.

I have to say Folklore trully was a different but great game.

I want to know what is next for Game Republic will it be another new IP or may be a new version of past games.

Also will Dark Mist come out on the US PSN servers that game looks nice.

Another thing when will Toy Home come out too.

Plus thanks for the free stuff. The team at Game Republic is setting a high standard for other devs to give away free stuff every now and then.
