Screens of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’s DLC Show New Characters, Stage

Today, we got a chance to go hands-on with the upcoming DLC for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and we’ve come back with a handful of screenshots showing off what’s being added to the game.

In addition to two new characters—Kat from Gravity Rush, and Emmett Graves from Starhawk—the game is also getting an additional stage. As with the rest of PS All-Stars‘ stages, it’s a blending together of elements from different PlayStation franchises—this time, Heavenly Sword and WipEout. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Looks fantastic!

Love the perspective depth of Wipeout's track, really translates what the game is about

And Kat <3

I really hope they are not rivals. Anyway, I wonder if a character can get hurt by the vehicle in that Wipeout stage.

Those images look good and it looks like the DLC is coming along fine.

Seth Killian response to them being rivals

"Yes, happy to say both Kat and Emmett have full story modes complete with rivalry cinematics. Are they rivals? Hmmm…"

I'm assuming no for that response, but if they have a story than who are they rivaled with?? maybe we'll be teased with two more characters

Looks great. Can't wait to see what Kat can do.

And the best part of all this is it's free!

Them being rivals makes sense. One controls gravity, and the other uses objects that fall from the sky.

Simple really.
ForgottenProphecy  +   944d ago
they were confirmed as rivals. Sorry I don't have the source.
Nitrowolf2  +   945d ago
was hoping the new stage would actual be one from Gravity Rush along with Starhawk mix. Imagine a level where the players are falling to reach the bottom of the creators world (gravity rush thing). man that section of the game took forever lol.

Great stuff, even more reasons to get PlayStation All-Stars if you havent already. Dont miss out on this great game
League_of_Draven  +   945d ago
I'm seeing even less reasons to get it unless you've just started gaming with PS3.
Snookies12  +   945d ago
Your statement is flawed. This is in fact MORE of a reason to get it, that is a fact considering this will be free. You cannot say this is not more of a reason.

What does this game have to do with just starting out gaming on PS3 anyway? Are you implying that it's too easy or something, because you'd be wrong.

Seeing less reasons? That actually requires you to see what the game is like which I highly doubt you have. And by the way how about you own a PS3 before you make a statement like that.

SICK! Love this game. Support it buy picking it up people!
P_Bomb  +   945d ago
Ha, love it! Game is so under-rated. Never thought I'd see WipEout in a 2D fighter. Fun

Is this all going to be free? I know the characters will be.
Kane22  +   945d ago
yes this is all free
cpayne93  +   945d ago
Sweet! Helpful bubs.
CaitSith  +   945d ago
Actually, it's only free within 2 weeks post-DLC release. So after that, you'll have to pay for the DLC.
CaitSith  +   945d ago
Don't know why I got a disagree. It's not like I'm pulling this information out of my ass or anything.
garos82  +   944d ago
You are absolutely right.those of you thinking of buying the game in the future can still download the free dlc and use it when you get the game.

Those who don't have it what are you waiting for? It's so much fun
Neo-Axl  +   945d ago
Any DLC these guys will give, Characters or maps

r21  +   945d ago
Look at pic 4, Sly is scared as hell XD
I cannot wait to play as Emmet and Kat :) Btw, are the stages free as well? All I've heard is that just characters are free for 2 weeks, dont know bout the stages though.
PhunnyJesta  +   945d ago
crash and spyro really needs to make it in as dlc characters....even though they should of been in from the beginning -__-
TheFallenAngel  +   945d ago
Holy crap, they still can't put Nathan Hale or a chimera from Resistance??? Fall of Man sold more then all those games combined and they still cant put them. Nice to see how sony supports their first killer and launch game. Shame.

Because you can see the future and know what characters are going to be part of the game. It doesn't matter if they want to put the character in the game, it's if the developer wants to put it in the game. Do you think they could just put a Chimera or Nathan Hale without talking and convincing Insomniac and asking their permission first? You should be asking Insomniac why they are taking so long to let Nathan Hale or a Chimera into the game.I am sure Superbot would be happy to accept an offer of new characters but what can they do until Insomniac gives the go ahead?

@ PhunnyJesta that is not up to Superbot or Sony. That is up to Activision and they don't have to listen or give up their characters if they don't want to. They don't have to follow Sony's schedule or their needs. They can damn well put Crash or Spyro if or when they want. Did you expect them to delay the whole game until Activision decided to hear them out? Suppose Activison told them they could negotiate with them until six months after the game was supposed to be released, should they have waited six more months just to put them in? Remember they are working on the developers terms not theior own. They can easily just say no and it wouldn't affect them in the least.

I don't think this is the last of the DLC for this game. Also, we have stages from resistance. So, I'm sure we will see them in the game, but before we do, SuperBot has to get the okay from insomniac.

Let's hope we get someone from OddWorld and Persona Games as well. I know the Developers would like to see them in the game. And the best thing about this is getting encouragement from other developers.

IMO, I think we are seeing Kat and Emmett in this game to help make them more known and help sell their current and maybe future titles.
DigitalRaptor  +   944d ago
Wow, so they haven't put in Wander/Colossus from a game of legacy and you're complaining about Resistance?
Y_5150  +   945d ago
I love this! I'm about to get Gravity Rush because of Plus. The demo was fun! :)
kratoz1209  +   945d ago

the depth is crazy. I bought this game it's a must have
Pentumsmart  +   944d ago
This should've been in the game already...
WeAreLegion  +   944d ago
They didn't have time. Balancing is the biggest issue to worry about. Sure, they could have added the characters in, but it would have taken even more time to balance them out with the rest of the characters.

KAT!!!!
