3D platformer Kao The Kangaroo gets all new content, base game goes free on Epic

Bend the Roo’les with Kao the Kangaroo’s new DLC, and if you’re on Epic for the PC, you can also nab a completely free copy of the base game.

Too right

So this is a pretty cool little development. It’s actually the latest addition to what’s already set up to be a big week for Tate Multimedia’s great-looking 3D platformer, Kao the Kangaroo.

If you don’t know, that’s because Kao was already set to be delivered an Anniversary Edition, meant to celebrate the game’s first year on sale. The new edition includes both the Oh! Well pack, and the brand-new Bend the Roo’les DLC. So if you skipped the original and grab the new version, you’ll Geta. fair shake of added content.

Bend the Roo’les, by the way, is a pretty chunky pack. It includes a whole new campaign to play through, as well as a new boss battle. That comes by way of the Crab King, a particularly sassy shellfish out to make a bad day for Kao.

The bouncing and punching kangaroo Kao is back with the launch today of its latest DLC Bend the Roo’les. This new DLC adds an incredible amount of content to the game with a whole new campaign and a new enemy boss, the Crab King, as well as five new levels with different challenges including a time challenge, rising lava, dimming light, and even a 2D level! “Bend the Roo’les” is now available on every platform for $7.99/€7.99/£6.59.

Tate Multimedia press release

Let’s get back to the free stuff though, as that’s the latest to the table. Tate has announced that Kao is indeed a free addition to the Epic Game Store, and will be free to add to your account through the 11th of May. Just to clarify, this is the base version of the title, not the Anniversary. So if you do want to play Bend the Roo’les, you’ll need to pick that up separately.

Also worth mentioning again, is that the original Kao titles have been bundled together, exclusively on Steam. So if you wanted a little trip down memory lane, there’s your ticket.
