Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Public Beta Will Start In Early October

DualShock Nexus: Today Sony officially announced a public beta for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale in the fall but didn't say when it would take place exactly. The private beta a lucky handful of players got to participate in will continue from now until early October. Once the private beta is finished is probably when the public beta will begin for the rest of us. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, SuperBot Entertainment)

I've heard from several people that the roster is still sort of a bummer with a lack of some key characters...

But this is definatley one of my most wanted games!

Yeah I suppose 'key' characters is a matter of opinion.Parapper, Sir Dan, Spike,Sly,Ratchet and Jak is all I really need. Anyone who thought Square and Activision would share any of their characters for peanuts are delusional.

@ Omar91. Maybe. Maybe I am being too negative. We haven't gotten the whole roster yet and I am sure there is still room for more. But I refuse to be disappointed seeing that other characters can still come later for DLC. Even if we don't get Crash and Spyro now we could still get them later. I am sure Superbot would have added Spyro and Crash in a heart beat if they belonged to them.

I honestly have not given hope. I think Activision and Square gave sony at least something.
Reverent  +   1121d ago
I agree, as stubborn as Square ans Acrivision are, I think Sony might be able to get a character or two out of them. As for me, Cole Macgrath was the major character I was hoping for in this game. Now that we've got him, I'm happy:)

Well, the major players like Crash, Spyro, Wanderer, and Cloud are missing, but it's not all up to Sony. I still think we will see them as DLC since Activision would love to make a profit off of this.

Sony has control of the Shadow of the Colossus IP, so it's a given that the lead character (it's Wander btw) from one of the most iconic & beloved PS2 games would be included. I'm more excited about the Colossus stage than fighting as Wander though.

I wonder if Amaterasu will be in there since she was also in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. They might allow it though, since it would help push Okami HD on PSN.

I'm excited to see some Sega characters in there such as Kazuma Kiryu (Yakuza) and hopefully even Sonic with Tails and Knuckles as sprites, and a Dr. Robotnik stage. That would be great.

Some other realistic hopefuls: James Bond (I heard he was gonna be in there), Max Payne (with bullet-time ability), Leon Kennedy (RE4 version), Jade and Pey'j (Beyond Good & Evil), Ico & Yorda, Katamari stage, Hale & Chimera (Resistance), Old Snake (with Big Boss and Young Snake skins), Prince of Persia (original trilogy).

I was certain that Plus members would be getting in this month, October seems to far away, especially since the current private beta is very small and going all the way to October itself (and it wouldn't make sense to keep such a small limited beta for that long)
WeskerChildReborned  +   1121d ago
I'm not sure if the beta we're getting this month is the Playstation All Stars beta.

I wish it's either PSABR or God of war Ascension beta.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1121d ago
That's great if it's true.
THESHAUNZY  +   1121d ago
I hope this is true!
Acquiescence  +   1121d ago
I've got the beta...
and it's glitchy as hell, but great all the same. I'm here to brag essentially.

(maining PaRappa)
flavorbabies  +   1121d ago
I agree that even with the glitches it's still a great game. We have well over 2 months before all these issues get ironed out. Level 3 supers are really glitchy. Especially Sly Cooper's. Radec's level 3 sometimes prevents people from spawning.

Granted, it could also be an old build;) Problems could very well already be solved.
r21  +   1121d ago
wait, isnt PSASBR releasing in October? or did they change the date?
flavorbabies  +   1121d ago
No it's still releasing October 23rd.
r21  +   1121d ago
really, shouldnt they like stop the beta a month before. its rather strange they're releasing that long. unless they want to give the public a sort of demo before buying the game.
