Just a short while ago Sony announced that their upcoming mascot brawler PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale had gone gold. The development team over at Superbot Entertainment also recently revealed that the game will get downloadable content post-launch with additional characters and other DLC levels.
Well now Sony has unveiled the first DLC characters to be joining the All-Stars roster ‒ they are Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawk. According to Seth Killian, a Lead Game Designer at Sony Santa Monica Studio, this is what dev teams do after a game goes gold, they work on DLC!
Together Kat and Emmett promise to make up “one of the most original duos in All-Stars.” Emmett’s playstyle will utilise Starhawk’s Build and Battle system, where he will call down help from the sky. You’ll also recognise his signature weapons from his duels with the Outcasts on Dust. Kat, meanwhile, will turn gravity on its head with “mine-bending new ways to move as she positions herself for her unique brand of aerial assault.”
These first two DLC characters will be available for free to everyone, but only for the first two weeks when they become available for download early next year. You can check them out below.
Seth Killian, “Everyone at SuperBot, Bluepoint, and Santa Monica Studio has tried hard not only to make a great game, but also to keep the fans very firmly in mind, offering the most we can wherever we get the chance. So far we’ve offered exclusive free pre-order costumes, an amazing digital version for PS Vita at no cost when you buy the PS3 version, frame-accurate cross-play, and now Kat and Emmett coming soon for free!”
PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale will be released for PS3 and PS Vita on November 20th in the US and November 23rd in the UK. If you pick up the PS3 version you can download the game on PS Vita free of charge.
