Well that didn’t take long. Five days before the release of PlayStation All-Stars comes the news of two free DLC characters to add to the roster. Best part? They’re both free! Worst part? We have no idea when they’ll release.
According to the official PlayStation blog:
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, and that you can look forward to playing them… for free!
Yes, you heard that right. We’re very happy to announce these first two DLC characters will be free to everyone for the first two weeks once they are available for download early next year.
That may sound a little tricky, so let me be clear: once Kat and Emmett are finished, we’ll put them up for download. They’ll be totally free for two weeks. The only limit is that you have a two-week window to claim the characters. Once you have Kat and Emmett, they are yours forever. That may sound like a lot to remember, so don’t worry, we’ll be back closer to their release to remind you of all these details.
So who are they? I know the suspense is killing you, right? Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett from Starhawk.
The blog goes on to talk about how both of these characters are some of the most unique on the roster. Kat will bring the gravity altering powers she has in her game and focus on aerial attacks. Emmett sounds awesome with Starhawk’s Build-In-Battle making an apparance as things come raining down from the sky to help him out.
