New PlayStation All-Stars enter the fray next month

Yo! I’m excited to finally announce that our first wave of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC will be available on 13th February. Here’s what to expect.

Kat graces PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale with her presence, as an up-close melee fighter who utilises her ability to manipulate gravity to turn the tide in battle. Players who enjoyed Gravity Rush on PS Vita know that Kat loves to bend gravity to allow her to dash, slide and fly from one place to another, and her All-Stars incarnation is no exception.

Those who enjoy AP burst combos and varied mobility will definitely gravitate towards Kat.

Emmett Graves from Starhawk also joins the fray! He brings his signature “Build & Battle” style from Starhawk, calling down different structures to aid him in battle, including Rift Extractors for AP and Flak Turrets that fire at will.

Emmett - PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Aside from his default rifle and pistol, Emmett can also call for additional weaponry in the form of shotgun and rocket launcher load-outs, allowing him to adapt to any situation. These load-outs will also change his level 1 super, giving him a total of five supers to choose from!

Rest assured that these DLC characters will be getting the same treatment the rest of our cast was given, including updated official website pages with moves and bios, alternate costumes, Arcade Mode cut scenes, Trial Modes and more.

Our newest level, Fearless – a mash-up between Heavenly Sword and WipEout – will also be available to purchase in February. Please note that purchasing Fearless will allow you to select the stage offline and in non-ranked lobbies, while those who choose not to purchase it can still enjoy it in ranked games online.

Kat and Emmett will be available to download from 13th February, and will be free for the first two weeks, so mark your calendar and get them as soon as possible! We’re not stopping there, though. We still have some more All-Stars on the way, so keep your eyes peeled in March for more info!

Did you enjoy this?

Sounds awesome, can’t wait to add Kat and Emmett to the roster. Hope to see more characters very soon. Btw, any word the other DLC what the US got last year? =D

any new trophies with the dlc?

 

Great DLC for a great game, I’m still really impressed you managed to nab Kat.
Excited to see what All-Stars we may have coming too, many thanks to the SuperBot team.

 

Kat is cool, but a Starhawk geezer…not at all.

Lara Croft
Crash
Spyro
Abe
Cloud
Any Resident Evil character..

Where they at, etc etc

 

Next DLC characters, my bet is:

Crash & Abe

BOOM! There, I said it!

Kat look’s like a character I’d really enjoy, while Emmet looks like a character my brother would enjoy, so this looks really good.

I’d like to ask, i there any plans to make the Rival Stage available to use in multiplayer, maybe even add the “Polygon” colour scheme to the characters?

 

BRILLIANT GAME!!! :P :P :P I really love this game;) Only 2 fighting games i have loved in my nearly 15 years of owning a PlayStation & this is 1 of them(the other 1 is ‘Tekken 3′ on PS1) ;)

+ PLEASE bring ‘Crash Bandicoot’ & ‘SNAKE’ & ‘Lara’ to this game :P

+ if anyone wants to get the ‘Friendly Competition’ Trophy add me;) No one has the game on my PSN Friends list :(

When will the DLC costumes be release in the European PSN Store?

 

I wish we could see Hatsune Miku as a DLC. After all Miku games are exclusive to Sony consoles.

Maybe some chars from Persona 4 as well ;).

Wow i cant wait to play with them both,especially Kat!
I want Rikimaru from Tenchu games now and i will be happy :)

Are the stages and characters tied together? Or rather will the characters be free for a limited time and the stages will always cost money?

I’m not sure I like the whole paying for characters thing, people will buy but there should have been more content on the disc. I was massively underwhelmed by the story mode (have you played Mortal Kombat?) and the content you unlock is either useless or a single costume. I’m a big fan of fighting games but the number of characters / backgrounds and general halfheartedness of PSASBR has put me off it hopefully I’ll be won back by some awesome DLC characters / backgrounds.
