UPDATE: After the two weeks of being free Kat and Emmett will cost $4.99 each to download. Fearless is priced at $1.99

Owners of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale should look to the PSN Store right now. Two new characters are available for download. And that’s not even the best part… for the first two weeks, they’re available for FREE!

PlayStation All-StarsThe first new character is Kat and Dusty from the PS Vita’s Gravity Rush. Kat will specialize in close combat melee, using her ability to manipulate gravity to give her attacks extra power, give her a speed boost or stagger her enemies. She can also float up debris and objects lying around and hurtle them at her foes. Sounds fun, right? If you needed any more reason to be excited about Kat joining the All-Stars, go ahead and watch her in action.

The second new character joining in the brawl is Starhawk’s own Emmett Graves. Emmett has a myriad of weapons at his disposal, and the one you’re using will also change his super. Not only that, but this guy gets automated turrets to continue wreaking havoc for him while he eliminates his targets.

As if two new FREE (for two weeks) characters wasn’t enough, there’s also a new level being released. Fearless is described as “a mash-up between Heavenly Sword and Wipeout” and will be available for purchase in February. It seems the level will not be free like the characters, but even if you don’t purchase it you will still be able to play it during ranked online matches.

So, waste no time, these characters are available to download now! I’m sure they’ll be a smash! There’s more All-Stars DLC to come in March, too. You can bet we’re looking forward to it.

  • I love Kat’s character design, but I can’t make myself get the game for her… especially when I haven’t played the game she’s from…

    And she’s really the most appealing character to me, which is kinda sad…

      Seriously. Gravity Rush makes me wish I had a Vita.

    • Nova Remnant

      Oh, don’t.  It’s really nothing special, and I was disappointed in that after my purchase.

      You probably suck at gravity shifting now you come here to say shit

    • Matt

      It’s a real good game, you should buy it! It’s my favorite Vita game so far, and I can’t stop playing! Made my Vita totally worth it already! 😉

    •  I’m really on/off about Gravity rush. It’s an OK game, the change in gravity bugs me sometimes, and the game gets real stale after a while.

    • dubaloseven

      B-b-but, Pandora’s Tower!

  • Because when you think “classic PlayStation characters” you think…Starhawk?

    • It’s the icons of Playstation overall, not just the classic characters. 

    • Britney Spears

      You should read the game’s name, it’s PlayStation All-STARS Battle Royale, not PS All-Classic Battle Royale

    • And a character from Starhawk somehow qualifies for that?  There are some painfully obvious omissions on the roster, like Crash Bandicoot (not Sony’s fault since he’s owned by Activision now), and an over-reliance on third-party characters (what is it about the Big Daddy that screams PlayStation?).

      Agreed. Sony should have licensed out Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon. Hey, it could even help sell Skylanders if they tied it in right…

      Those are two icons that I always think of when I think of PlayStation, maybe because I’m a jaded fan of the PS1.
