Kat from Gravity Rush, and Emmett from Starhawk will be the first 2 DLC characters released for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, early next year.
And, if you download their DLC packs within the first 2 weeks of their release, both characters will be yours for free. After that, they will cost money to purchase.
"Were 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, well put them up for download. Theyll 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 dont worry, well be back closer to their release to remind you of all these details."
I'm really happy about this, since I think Kat makes a great heroine and would be a pretty original addition to the roster. I'm not familiar with Starhawk, but it sounds like Emmett will be pretty unique as well, utilizing the 'build & battle' system from that game series. So that's two interesting last-minute additions to PSASBR, I think we all can agree that this is good news.
