After quite a lengthy wait, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has just received two brand new fighters as free DLC, in the form of Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett from Starhawk, as well as a new stage that's available as a paid add-on.PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale came out last year and delivered a pretty impressive fighting game experience, with the developers at SuperBot Entertainment bringing together all sorts of impressive characters, both from Sony franchises and from third-party properties.
Now, after lots of teasing and a lengthy wait, the game has finally received two brand new characters, in the form of Kat, who previously starred in the PS Vita-exclusive Gravity Rush, and Emmett, from the PS3 title Starhawk.
Check out the complete descriptions of the new fighters below, via PS blog.
"Kat graces PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale with her presence, as an up-close melee fighter who utilizes 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 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. Aside from his default rifle and pistol, Emmett can also call for additional weaponry in the form of shotgun and rocket launcher loadouts, allowing him to adapt to any situation. These loadouts will also change his level 1 super, giving him a total of five supers to choose from!"
The new characters will be available for free in the next two weeks and, after that, Battle Royale players will have to pay to add them to their roster.
What's more, a brand new stage called Fearless has also been made available. The level is free to play on in ranked online matches but, if players want to experience it offline or in player matches, they'll have to pay a small fee.
