Seth Killian, lead game designer at Sony's Santa Monica Studio, announced today that Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawk will be added to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale as free DLC.

There's a two week window where both fighters will be available for free, after release. After that time, it's unclear how Kat and Emmett will be made available for download, and if there will be any resulting fees to pay to use them.

Killian noted that these are, "the first DLC characters" implying there will be additional fighters added to the game.

Emmett's playstyle will include his signature weapons, but he'll also be able to utilize Starhawk’s unique "Build-in-Battle" system, calling down help from the sky. Kat uses gravity to position herself for unique aerial attacks. Check out the character's artwork below.

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale has gone gold on both Playstation 3 and Vita, hundereds of hours of content in game

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale has gone gold on both Playstation 3 and Vita, hundereds of hours of content in game Seth Killian wrote an installment of the Playstation Blog recently to drop a few bits of information about Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. Both the Playstation 3 and PS Vita versions have gone gold, meaning the games are finalized and ready to be sold next week on November 20th.

Also, in response to a user's comment asking about single player options, Seth mentioned that there will be hundreds of hours of content to keep players busy for quite a while. Below is Killian's response.

Beyond arcade mode with intros, endings, and rival cut-scenes for every character and all the multiplayer stuff, All-Stars has tons of interesting challenges and trials (both overall trials and character-specific stuff). Certainly it’s hundreds of hours of content there, and a very extensive set of unlocks, from titles, to taunts, to character-specific intro and outro moves, musical themes, badges, etc. Hope this helps.

This Playstation Blog also features the intro cinematic for PS All-Stars that was released last week. This shows a glimpse at Polygon Man, the final boss of the game.

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale: Negotiations for Crash happen on a higher level than SuperBot, no secret characters - all unlocked at start

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale: Negotiations for Crash happen on a higher level than SuperBot, no secret characters - all unlocked at start Siliconera recently sat down with Playstation All-Star Battle Royale director, Omar Kendall, for an interview discussing the upcoming Playstation brawler. Kendall touches on various topics including the process of getting first and third party characters into the game, how the negotiations for Crash Bandicoot occur on a higher level than SuperBot and that there will be no secret characters to unlock.

Below is a bit from the article to get you started.

Did you try for Crash Bandicoot at all? Crash was so synonymous with the PlayStation brand early on even though he’s at Activision now.

Yeah. I have to say it’s not that Superbot is some independent developer chasing down third-party characters. This is a negotiation that happens on a much higher level than Superbot, with Sony and Activision, these two giant companies.

And I completely understand how big and important a character like Crash is to the PlayStation universe. We want to make it clear to fans that we understand how important a character Crash is to the PlayStation universe. Obviously, we try everything in our power to try and get characters like Crash.

Are there any secret characters in the game that you still haven’t revealed?

Playable? No. We’ve got our 20 launch characters and they’re unlocked from day one. We’ve got some secrets, but not on our playable roster. If I really dig Sly Cooper and he’s not unlocked on day one, that’s going to be a bummer for me, so we want to make sure the characters are available.

Be sure to check out Siliconera for the full interview. Tip by jtir123.

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale was originally planned as 4v4, class based, capture the flag game

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale was originally planned as 4v4, class based, capture the flag game Siliconera recently sat down with the lead game designer of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, Omar Kendall, for an interesting interview. According to Kendall, before PS All-Stars became a brawler style game, it was actually going to be a 4v4 capture the flag type game with different classes such as fast runners, defenders and more.

Below is a bit from Siliconera's article to get you started.

"Eventually [SCEA] decided on a PlayStation All-Stars type game – a broad concept of let’s take all of these great PlayStation characters and PlayStation universes and bring them together into a single game. And then it became a question of what kind of game do we want to bring these characters in," said Omar Kendall, Lead Game Designer at SuperBot Entertainment, to Siliconera. I asked Kendall about SuperBot’s origins and what other game concepts they had in mind other than a fighting game.

"There were all sorts of little gameplay demos and prototypes. When I talk about the last version of the game before we settled on the current incarnation was this 4v4 capture the flag kind of game. It was a class based game where you had fast runners who were good at capturing the flag and taking the flag back to base. You had defensive dudes. We were taking PlayStation characters and using them like archetypes," Kendall answered.
