PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale players will be able to play as two new characters with a download pack released this week.
Available today in UK and tomorrow, Wednesday March 20 in UK, the new character pack adds Zeus (God of War) and Isaac Clarke (Dead Space) to the playable roster of fighters.The update also brings 'Graveyard', a new background stage based on elements from MediEvil and The Unfinished Swan.Detailing Zeus' fighting traits, lead game designer Seth Killian says, "Zeus plays as a legendary heavyweight, making each strike feel epic. He's got limited range, but with the ability to power up every attack merely by holding down the button, he can crush a cowardly opponent's guard and build AP faster than anyone. Many of his triangle lightning attacks are also excellent at catching multiple opponents for an even faster ride towards his truly Olympian level 3 super."And on Isaac, Killian adds, "Isaac Clarke is at his best harassing opponents from mid-range, with a wide variety of projectiles powered up by his unique Stasis and Kinesis powers. He's no slouch at close range either, with some mighty melee attacks and the short-range force gun, but he shines brightest harassing more distant opponents with the grenade launcher, bouncing bola, and his Plasma Cutter."Today's update also brings new balance tweaks which, according to Killian, "modifies every existing character in some way (and fixes some pesky glitches), as well as adding some new bells and whistles to familiar items".Zeus and Isaac Clarke will cost $4.99/4.99 each, but are free to anyone who purchased a copy of God of War: Ascension and redeems their Network Pass code (offer available for 30 days only).The Graveyard stage will be playable free in online ranked matches, and will cost $1.99/1.99 to own it for offline play.
