PlayStation All-Stars to add Kat and Emmett via free DLC

Gravity Rush and Starhawk stars joining the fight.

Gravity Rush heroine Kat and Starhawk hero Emmet Graves will join PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale after its November 20 as free download content, developer SuperBot has announced.

Kat’s gravity abilities will allow her to move about in “mind-bending” ways as she positions herself for unique aerial assauults. Emmett’s play style will utilize his signature weapons from Starhawk, as well as the game’s “Build-In-Battle” system to call down help from the sky.

“These DLC All-Stars still have a long way to go before they’re ready to be shown off,” said Sony Santa Monica Studio lead designer Seth Killian, “but we wanted to let you know what the team will be working on now that we’ve gone gold with the main game, and that you can look forward to playing them… for free!”

Both characters will be made available early next year. They’ll be free for two weeks. Once you grab them, they’re yours forever.

Thanks, PlayStation Blog.

    Now I’m buying this game just for Kat. <3

    • PrinceHeir

      definitely a huge plus for me as well ^^

     Free DLC. DLC done right :) happy about Kat, knew she was coming but nice to have confirmation.

       Its amusing that people think all dlc should be free oh got to love this gen.

      • BizarreJelly

         I didn’t say all DLC should be free… A vast majority of it should be though.

      • SearchingCurious

        If game developers decide to make free dlc for those who are playing their games, don’t you think it’s a good deal?

    I played the beta, for one day, I had forgot about it. The game is actually pretty damn fun. Sony’s cool little SuperSmashBros-esque brawler. The one thing holding me back is the characters. They’re cool but their isn’t one that makes me go like “f**k yeah, I want this.”

  • MrRobbyM

    Okay. This is a good move, Sony. They really should be free forever and always but at least it’s free.

    It’s hypocritical that people praise Superbot but those very people complain about Capcom when both of them give out free DLC under a certain condition. Admittedly, Capcom’s condition is a little more strict but when you look at it closely, they’re both doing the same thing. Free DLC but with terms and conditions. Those who believe in ‘ethics’ or whaetever would not buy this game but alas gamers, are a fickle bunch.

    Anyway, nice job Sony.

      The difference is, most of Capcom’s DLC is a bunch of crap content and shouldn’t even be considered “DLC”

      • delon33

        Because hours of new gameplay with a highly requested character is ‘crap’.  

    • BizarreJelly

      The difference here is that these characters aren’t already on the disk and locked, which Capcom love doing.

      • delon33

        Because the Vergil DLC is disc locked right? Right??? Thought so. 

        • BizarreJelly

          Wow one game, bravo. Resident Evil, Street Fight + Marvel vs Capcom 3 and their 10289478+ versions with their on-disk locked content say hello.

    Free DLC?

    Oh Sony, you shouldn’t have! :3

    Hopefully there’s more DLC characters on the way *prays for either Cloud or Lightning*

    Free for two weeks??? Should have been free forever but I can’t complain much… If Superbot does this the same for the other DLC characters, I have no problem buying this than to wait till all DLCs released…

    Still crossing my fingers for the characters I want….

  • new_tradition

    Is it fair to say these two and even the core 20 character cast are current gen characters? Will that give us an idea of what future dlc characters we can expect?

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    Fuck Yes!!! Can’t wait to play them.

  • KurisuMakise

    GOOD NEWS, Purchased confirmed, KAT 4 LYFE >;

    wot, no Ari from Okage?

  • Charlie

    Couldn’t give a rat’s arse about the Starhawk character but Kat is a welcome addition to the roster. I still don’t understand why Superbot still haven’t decided to add Crash, Spyro, Lara or Cloud, it doesn’t make sense.

    Not surprised by this as they were leaked not too long ago.
