We have known for a while now that the first DLC for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will feature Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawk. However, in a recent post on the PlayStation Blog, the release date has been confirmed for February. The content will be free for the first two weeks, so make sure you pick it up as soon as it is released or you’ll have to pay. Here’s a little information about the two new entries and their playstyles:
Kat (Gravity Rush)
“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 (Starhawk)
“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 DLC will also feature a new map named “Fearless”, which will boast the staple mash-up of two franchises known to players. This new stage will merge together PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavenly Sword with WipEout.
The post also indicates that more announcements will be made in March, so who are you holding out for? Are you looking forward to playing either of the new characters? Or none at all? Let us know!
