PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Getting Continued Support

All of the DLC characters for Sony's mash up fighter have been released, but that doesn't mean the company is done supporting the game. PlayStation All-Stars will see more patches, costumes, and leaderboard fixes in the coming months.

In a blog post on Sony's PlayStation Blog, the company explained that SuperBot Entertainment has finished releasing DLC characters for PlayStation All-Stars. However, fans of the fighter can still look forward to a balance patch – which is still in the early stages of research and development – that should go live later this fall. A third set of costumes for Dante, Raiden, Heihachi, and Big Daddy, which were originally pre-order bonuses, will also become to everyone else on August 27. Zeus and Isaac's third costumes will become free as well, but probably won't hit until later this fall. Sony is also looking into the monthly tournament leaderboard reset problem, and will fix this bug as soon as it can.


Our Take
PlayStation All-Stars came out in November of last year and got a handful of good downloadable content. It was especially cool to see characters like Issac Clark and Zeus make it into the game, and while it's a shame that Abe from Oddworld never got a chance to join the cast, I'm not surprised to see that Sony has stopped the character rollout. I'm also happy to see that the game will be getting a little more support and that Sony is still working to balance and fix bugs this late in the game. Not many games get this level of support.
