Coming to PSN tomorrow: Deadliest Warrior: The Game

Prithvi Virasinghe's Avatar Posted by Prithvi Virasinghe on Oct 04, 2010 // Creative Director, Spike Games

We are really excited for the launch of Deadliest Warrior: The Game on PlayStation 3! In addition to the game we also have new avatars and themes that went up on September 28th. If you are a fighting game fan then we hope you enjoy the realistic battle system we created. Prepare to slice and dice (literally) your opponents, but don’t be surprised if your opponent also chops off an arm, leg or even your head.

The best advice we can give to new players is: play defense! Be tactical and look for the appropriate opening to strike. This is more a game of timing than it is about button dexterity. One-hit kills can happen so stay alert and don’t rush your enemy foolishly. Sometimes all you need are a few strokes to achieve victory. Because we wanted the game to stay true to the Deadliest Warrior show premise we wanted the warriors to be tough! So when you start playing, don’t be surprised if the game is HARD. Because it is! No really, if you go to the game settings and check the difficulty you notice that we start you on HARD. You’re welcome! If you want to slice your way to glory quickly and unlock all the weapons and extra armor then feel free to switch to Normal until you become familiar with the system.

Since there has been some time between releases, we have been able to add more balance to the PS3 version. The biggest issue we fixed was rage quitting where players could quit ranked matches via menu exit or powering down their systems and not lose ranking points. This causes a lot of heartache as you can imagine! The other major issue fixed was balancing the Ninja character. The Ninja’s weapons were slightly overpowered in the original release and he had an unfair instant recovery flaw that could be exploited. Needless to say, that has been fixed for the original PSN release. We’ve added a bunch more balancing fixes in there to uplift some of the weaker characters as well, so the multiplayer lobbies should be buzzing and the leader boards will reflect the true skill level of all the players.

We are also excited to announce upcoming DLC. Three new characters will be available with entirely different play styles. The only announced character so far is Rajput (above) but if you want a hint as to who the other two are, be sure to check www.deadliestwarriorthegame.com and see which characters came out on top during our fan polls. We listened! That’s all I can say for now, but I look forward to playing everyone in the multiplayer mode!

Umm. So thanks for the update.. I can now connect to people. Only.. The game freezes during online multiplayer matches about sixty-five percent of the time now. It just stops working, and you have to exit the entire game every time.. It would have been nice to be able to play thru an entire round. Nice update…

Game Is Cool But Very Stupid Things Very Annoying !!! Like When Do Ninja Super Move Eg Sometimes Even From Very Close It Not Stun Opponent !!! & Ninja Blow Gun Is Worst Of All In Game !!! Only Two Shoots & Ninja Shoot Not Accurate & Sometimes Mis Even Opponent Stand Still . But Pirate Pistol Is Absolute Overpowered !! Two Shoots & He Shoot Extra Accurate & It Can Kill If Hit In Head . Even If Not Hit In Head Two Shoots Can Easy Kill If Hit One Hit Do Half Damage To Good =)

I’m liking the look of this game.
It has a more realistic feel to it ,but not frustrating, considering one hit kills is much more probable than a life bar but unfortunately my hands are tied as i have purchased the limited edition of castlevania and bought lara croft and the guardian of light off psn which totals to about 100$ in a week which is waaay over my budget for games monthly

but next time i get a psn card, i’m getting this…

Looks a lot like SoulCalibur, however, I’m sure it won’t be as intricate. But, then again, I am partial to the SoulCalibur series.

    It plays closer to Bushido Blade than SoulCalibur. In SC you can’t chop your opponents head off.

Not to sure about this one but you can’t argue with the price

I’m a Fighting game fan so you have me already. Plus being a Deadliest Warrior fan makes is even more epic to me. Now I can show every one that Samurais are the best.

P.S. I also like how the game starts on Hard.

Geez, why do people complain about if it doesn’t have Move Support, they’ll not buy it. DON’T WORRY IF IT DOESN’T HAVE MOVE SUPPORT, JUST ENJOY THE DAMN GAME, JEEZ LOUIS!!!

Anyway, I love the show and I would like to play the game. Kudo to you and Jeff Demoulin for creating this game.
