Coming to PSN tomorrow: Deadliest Warrior: The Game

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.

Deadliest Warrior: The Game for PS3: Ninja

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 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!

    Apologies, the Europe version has not been cleared by Sony yet. It is a different platform group and we have to go through a separate process. Working on it!

We have been receiving reports of multiplayer matching issues. We’ve been up all night trying to figure out the issue and we have discovered that some routers cause player matches to drop.

We apologize profusely for this issue and have worked through out the last two days to create a fix. We have that fix ready and will submit it to Sony today. If all goes well the fix should be operational in 10 days.

Again, sorry for inconvenience, but we are actively trying to fix this ASAP.

We WON’T leave you hanging.

Spike Games.

the game is cool and all and i like the one hit kill stuff… but what it needs work on is the online player matches… for example letting you change your character rather than just rematch and quit… its just really annoying having to exit out if your with a friend or not just to pick new characters

Any more news on the Eurpoean release? Been waiting a long time for Deadliest Warrior on the PS3 and was devastated when it wasn’t there on the 5th. How much longer do we have to wait?

Love everything about this game so far, its not perfect but its FUN, the only vice I have as of right now is the multiplayer. I am ecstatic to hear that a fix is already in sight. Fingers crossed!

What’s wrong with the multiplayer? I still have yet to connect to ANYONE!


+ That_guy44 on October 18th, 2010 at 11:47 am said:

At first the multiplayer worked for me. But for the last week I can’t connect to anyone play a match. Please tell me the fix will be soon. Any news of it?


+ sesomebody on October 18th, 2010 at 12:08 pm said:

So.. The fix was supposed to come in on the 17th.. it was a Sunday and no update or downloadable content. I figured “hey its Sunday.. it’ll come tomorrow.” Yet.. still nothing. Can we get some sort of update on the release date of the patch Spike??


+ Gelb123 on October 19th, 2010 at 6:19 am said:

And how about some news about the European version? Half of the times we have to wait 1 month or more to get many of the dlcs


+ The_Last__Shadow on October 19th, 2010 at 7:35 am said:

will it be availible in the UK?


+ sesomebody on October 20th, 2010 at 1:18 pm said:

Still waiting on that patch for the online play for Playstation 3 Users Spike Games. It’s over 10 days now. Still no word on any site about when the patch will go thru. I am sorely dissapointed that I talked my brother into purchasing the game, only to find we can’t even play together. PLEASE Release the Update!!


+ Gelb123 on October 21st, 2010 at 7:50 am said:

Think about how much we are disappointed in Europe since we don’t even have the game >.<


+ sesomebody on October 21st, 2010 at 10:34 am said:

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 =)
