Seth Killian's 10 tips on how to improve in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

Seth Killian's 10 tips on how to improve in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Sony Santa Monica's Seth Killian recently divulged 10 tips on how to improve your gameplay in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. These tips focus on various areas including how to play effectively in free-for-all, how to build AP quickly, tips on taking out the final boss and more.

Below is a bit to get you started.

5. How to survive on All-Star difficulty

Besting arcade mode on the All-Star difficulty is tough like a tattooed diamond – and to crack that particular nut you’ll need to master the art of eliminating multiple foes at once. ‘If you’re judicious with your level 1 specials and are able to take out 1, sometimes 2, maybe 3 opponents,’ Killian suggests. ‘Pay attention to your moves and try to maximise your AP.’ This means short, snappy combos that you can quickly duck out of if another opponent approaches from behind. Make frequent use of evade, and be sure your specials are going to hit before you execute them.

6. Look after the environment

Often the arena itself will slam down an attack – Hades is a constant menace in God of War’s ‘Underworld’ stage for example, while Metal Gear Ray can make an appearance with stinger missiles locked and loaded. ‘Using the arena is absolutely critical. All the characters doing things will give you big cues – Hades will wind up as if he’s going to strike down, and it’s also consistent every time. With a little experience you’ll get the hang of when Hades is about to attack, and be ready to avoid that.’ Not only can you avoid the damage yourself, but shoving opponents into the line of fire can be a great tactic.

Updated: Not true infinite, small AP meter bug - Nathan Drake potential infinite discovered in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

Updated: It is being reported that the Nathan Drake gun shot infinite is not a true infinite, but rather, a glitch with the AP meter at the bottom of the screen. Dragoomba sent in a new video showing that the loop is still practical in combos and he shows a successful loop from a hit confirm on an airborne opponent.

With the recent release of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, it seems players have already begun discovering infinites in SuperBot's Playstation brawler. Dragoomba uploaded a video showing off a possible infinite using Nathan Drake.

This infinite requires a cornered Nathan and is quite situational. Dragoomba shows a few clips in this video, one of which showing the Infinite Prevention System kicking in and the latter showing the infinite in full effect.

Gravity Rush's Kat in Playstation All-Stars can 'move around the screen like nobody else' - currently not working as intended, slighlty broken

Gravity Rush's Kat in Playstation All-Stars can 'move around the screen like nobody else' - currently not working as intended, slighlty broken Push Square recently conducted an interview with Sony Santa Monica's Seth Killian to discuss some of the upcoming Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC. According to Killian, Kat from Gravity Rush will retain some very unique movement capabilities and at her current stage of development, is not quite working as intended.

You can check out a bit from Push Square's article below.

“As for Kat, well, she’s kind of broken right now,” the lead game designer told us. “Again, these [DLC] characters are very early. They’re just sort of mock-ups that still look like other characters. They’ve got bits of other protagonists still stuck on them that we have to rework in order to get them properly finished.”

Assuming the design doesn’t change prior to release, Killian added that the character will feature lots of crazy movement options, and the ability to adapt physics. “Obviously, she’s immune from gravity, and she’ll have the opportunity to exploit that in battle," he said. "She’s got a lot of great combos already actually.”

Seth also added that at this point in time there are no announcements on the Crash Bandicoot front.
