PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Good news for Sony fans.  Starting on October 16, 2012, PlayStation 3 owners who are also PlayStation Plus members as well as all PlayStation Vita owners will be able to play the beta version of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.  Featuring famous characters from a plethora of series, players will be able to fight as Big Daddy from Bioshock, Raiden from Metal Gear Solid, Dante from Devil May Cry, Kratos from God of War, and many more.  Since PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a multiplayer game, up to four players can battle one another in arenas from different Sony games.

The beta will run for two weeks, from October 16 to October 30.  For PlayStation 3 owners who aren’t PlayStation members – don’t fret, after the first week, the beta will go public on October 23 and be open to anyone who would like to try the game.

The actual North American release date for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is scheduled to be November 20, 2012, and it is available for pre-order.

Check out the beta announcement!

Will it ever achieve the same popularity as the Super Smash Brothers franchise?  Only time will tell.

About Stephanie Yang

Stephanie loves MMORPGs. Especially Ragnarok Online. She also is a bit obsessed with Fire Emblem. That's all you have to know about her.

  • Do you have to be a Plus member AND have a Vita, or just a Plus member?

    • If you’re a PS3 owner, you must have a Plus membership to join the first week of beta.  If you’re a Vita owner, then you’re all set.

  • I hope they’ll add some old PS1 combatants. The PS1 is under-represented with the current lineup.

  • Awww, how come Europe gets nothing? We get no beta… or do we?

  •  I’m afraid that’s the list UNLESS they’re planning on DLC characters :3

  • Just a plus member. Also, this should be for Europe and US when the store is updated later today.

  • Add the Vib-Ribbon rabbit and I’m game.

  • They could’ve used the original Dante instead of the one from the crappy reboot 🙁

  • Louis Lam

    That’s not Dante >:(

  • Much love to Parappa. I hope they have some unlockable characters too. I’d like to see Rayman, Um Jammer Lammy, and some characters from the Shadow Hearts series. We’ll see what they do, but I’m not holding my breath.

  • Sniper D. Luffy

    i had a Vita and i DLed this easily…and then i compared it too much to Smash and it lost it’s sparkle…maybe later…

  • Jacob grady
