[UPDATE] One week only to get free druid costume for LBP

LittleBigPlanet makers Media Molecule have noticed the change in the weather, and it reminded them of the beliefs of the ancient inhabitants of their native U.K., the druids.

The druids believed the sun to be hottest at midday during the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. This was the biggest holiday of the year for them and they met in vast stone circles to perform religious rituals.


Today, science has confirmed the summer solstice to the exact day. In celebration of the druids and their awesome astronomical knowledge, LittleBigPlanet will have a free druid costume for download, but it will only be available for one week.

The beardy druid costume is available on June 18 in the U.K. and June 25 in the U.S. Don’t forget, because unlike solstices, beardy druid Sackboy is not coming back.


UPDATE: The costume has been delayed one week in Europe, according to a tweet from Media Molecule.

"Solstice costume delayed in Europe until next week - sorry folks," reads the message, followed by an empathetic smile.
