We already knew PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale would be getting DLC post-launch, but yesterday lead game designer Seth Killian revealed the first two characters that will arrive shortly after the game's launch. The first two characters that will join the roster will be Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawk.
According to Killian, Emmett's playstyle will utilize Starhawk's "Build and Battle" system along with his signature weapons. Kat will bend gravity to position herself for aerial assaults.
"These DLC All-Stars still have a long way to go before they’re ready to be shown off, but we wanted to let you know what the team will be working on now that we’ve gone gold with the main game," Killian said.
Best of all, both of these characters will be available to everyone for free when they are released "early next year". The only catch is that you'll have a two-week window to claim the characters, but once you do so they are yours forever.
"Everyone at SuperBot, Bluepoint, and Santa Monica Studio has tried hard not only to make a great game, but also to keep the fans very firmly in mind, offering the most we can wherever we get the chance," Killian concluded. "So far we’ve offered exclusive free pre-order costumes, an amazing digital version for PS Vita at no cost when you buy the PS3 version, frame-accurate cross-play, and now Kat and Emmett coming soon for free!"
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is set to arrive on PS3 and PS Vita on November 20th.
