Seth Killian, one of the main developers in charge of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, says that the first post-launch characters linked to the game are in the early stages of development and will add an interesting new dimension to the game.Gamers will be able to gain access to Emmett Graves, from Starhawk, and Kat, from Gravity Rush.
Killian tells Push Square that, “Starhawk had a lot of great technology where you’re always dropping crazy things from the sky, and we’ve tried to really implement that to represent the character. You can assume that some gun attacks will end up in his design as well, but we really wanted to accentuate this construction mechanic.”
Apparently, Kat has some problems at the moment, but the team is working hard to solve them because the core elements of the character are very appealing.
“Kat moves around the screen right now like nobody else. I’m sure, even if it doesn’t stay in the way that it is right now, that she’ll have a lot of crazy movement options and definitely the ability to play with gravity,” Killian adds.
One of the main concerns for the development team is to make sure that both Graves and Kat add a new dimension to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
It seems that the addition of Kat, which starred in a PlayStation Vita core game, is also a sign that Sony wants to see more players use the new handheld to play PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale can be played on the PlayStation 3 and on the Vita and gamers can engage in cross-play in between the two versions.
The new DLC currently lacks a launch date, but the publisher has already said that it will be offered for free for two weeks, in order to make sure that all players can get it if they are interested.
