PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has gone gold, which means developer SuperBot Entertainment has turned its attention to DLC, announcing that the first batch will add two additional characters to the scrapper's already rather extensive roster.

Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawk will be coming to PS All-Stars Battle Royale post-launch, each with signature moves and weapons, Emmett will use his build-and-battle moves during fights, whereas Kat will be able to twist gravity 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, and that you can look forward to playing them… for free!" writes Sony Santa Monica Lead Designer, Seth Killian on the PS Blog.

Kat and Emmett will be free to download for two weeks following the date of their release on PSN, which has yet to be confirmed. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is out on November 20th in North America and November 23rd in Europe.

Why would they add the main character from Starhawk to this? He's not exactly an iconic character, he's been in one game and that was about a year ago and then there's kat who's been in one game released early this year. I know I sound cynical but these guys seem a little lame in comparison to what people have been asking for.

Kinda disappointed that this is called "All-Stars" and it doesn't actually have the Sony All-Stars cast. I'd at least think Spyro or Crash or even Sora would have been the first DLC characters...Just sayin. Although things are just getting started for this game. Here's hoping!

Lame addition. I wanna see Crash Bandicoot and Samanosuke Akechi. Those two are way better than these two. At least they aren't making us pay for the two Non all stars though.

I agree with others. Sony knows that most of the fans want Crash and Spyro and yet they are either keeping us in the dark for now, or they just don't plan on doing those characters due to licensing or what not.

Now that I think about's free! Why complain. Thanks Seth. It looks like you have learned your lesson from being with Capcom previously. Too bad the rest of them haven't yet.

I'm tired of hearing people bitching about 'where's this and where's that?'. The reason why some of the most iconic characters are not in the game is because the companies that hold their rights are asking too much to allow them into the game, and the developers of PSASBR simply don't have the money for it. Now quit your whining.

Guys, you have to take into account that Sony doesn't own Sora, cloud, crash or spyro. If you want those characters in the game, take your complaints to the companies that own the characters lol seriously though, sony can't just have any character they want in the game. They need permission from the other developers/publishers. In the mean time, I just got a vita a few weeks ago and played gravity rush, Kat is an amazing character for the game. Her moveset is going to blow our minds :P

If people don't know who these characters are, they are not true loyal fans to the Sony console/handheld product. So far great news. Hopefully we see Crash, and Sypro next, I don't mind spending about $3.99 for that set of DLC characters..

One last comment.. this might surprise you but there are wayyyyyy more greedy companies out there than Sony. And those greedy companies are the holders of those highly requested characters. You have to think realistically here /: be grateful we have companies like naughty dog, sucker punch, ninja theory that allowed there characters to be used.

I will not be satisfied till i see Yakuza's Kazuma *pretty obviously choice if you as me*, or Crash Bandicoot! :( but really this game is coming along quite well and has more of a new age look with most newly designed games being in their *new dante, new raiden, and the two above etc*

Sadly u can't please everyone... I think it's great though :) good on Sony for throwing a few freebies in there :) I'm sure all those who are complaining will still be downloading them. There's lotsa people I'd like to see... Old mate from red faction guerilla would have a move set ideal for a game like this. Will he be there? Who knows... Does that mean I'm boycotting? Definitely not!!

PLEASE stop trolling on here. Man seriously just stop it already! You've voiced your opinion on the game and you're entitled. However, you've done it in every damn article for it and its quite annoying. Just stop doing it man. Let us (the fans) enjoy the game to its entirety.

@27 - "If free why complain?"

If someone gave you a free bag of shit to eat, would you not complain?
