Announced last month, the first PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC will arrive in the form of two new playable characters, Kat from Gravity Rush and Starhawk's Emmett Graves, plus a new stage that's part Heavenly Sword and part Wipeout.
"These DLC All-Stars still have a long way to go before they're ready to be shown off," Seth Killian, lead game designer at Sony Santa Monica Studio, wrote on the PS Blog in mid-November, adding that they'll be free to download for their first two weeks of availability.
"In addition to the signature weapons you'll remember from his duels with the Outcasts on Dust, Emmett's playstyle will also utilize Starhawk's unique 'Build-in-Battle' system, calling down help from the sky.
"Kat's approach turns gravity on its head with some mind-bending new ways to move as she positions herself for her unique brand of aerial assault. Together, they make up one of the most original duos in All-Stars."
Yesterday, game developer SuperBot detailed a number of changes to the game set to be ushered in with a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale patch next week.
CVG's PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale review said the PS3 and Vita brawler is "fundamentally solid but lacking pizzazz".
