Pre-Order Bonuses and Release Date for PlayStation All-Stars

Cristian Cardona's Avatar + Posted by Cristian Cardona on Jul 06, 2012 // Associate Product Marketing Manager, Software Marketing

It’s only been a few weeks since E3, and the Internet has been set ablaze with anticipation for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale! We announced new fighters Nathan Drake and Big Daddy, and that PlayStation All-Stars will have a PlayStation Vita release when it launches later this year – so you’ll be able to take the battle with you on the go, or experience cross-platform matches against your friends whether you’re playing on PS3 or PS Vita.

We’ve been thrilled to hear all of the great responses to the news about the game so far, and have been reading all of your questions and comments on the blogs and forums. While we’ll get to answering all of them soon enough, today we’re going to be answering a couple of the more popular ones: “Why pre-order?” and “When is the game coming out?”

Aside from making sure you’ve got a copy on day one, pre-ordering will snag you an exclusive set of costumes for all of the characters in the game! Here are the outfits for the roster so far, but be sure to check back in with us later when we unveil them all.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Pre-Order Costumes

We’ve revealed eight characters already, but you’ll have to wait until our announcement later today to see who else will be in the ring. We will be unveiling two new characters during our Exhibition Presentation at EVO in Las Vegas this evening at 6:00pm PST. So if you’re in town for the tournament, stop by and check us out or tune in to the PS.Blog for more information.

When the game launches, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to unlock multiple costumes for each character, but these exclusive costumes will only be available if you pre-order. And yes, they’ll be available right when you start playing the game!

I’ll leave you with one last update: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will be launching on October 23rd, 2012! We’ll have plenty more details on the game — including pricing for both the PS3 and PS Vita versions — soon enough, but we wanted to give you a date to mark on your calendars. Be sure to head over to a participating retailer to reserve your copy today!

I REALLY hope you don’t make 5 versions of this game making everyone regret preordering it….that happened with marvel vs capcom 3….
and please, don’t go selling the best characters on ps network later….i mean, we all want snake, you can sell the snake skins from older games, or sell gray fox (the ninja from metal gear solid for psx) …anyway, i know i might sound too picky, but none of us like to pay what the game costs just to buy more and more stuff to actually get to fully enjoy the game….we miss that from ps2, where you got to unlock things, not just buy them.
thanks for reading this.

Hey Sony,

Based on what this game is, and this ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTi5EaocGaY ) commcercial, you need to add Crash Bandicoot as a playable character!

Please tell me he is going to make it… Activision can lend.

PLAYSTATION ALLSTARS without “COLLECTORS EDITION” IS JUST PLAIN STUPID. the 1st time sony does this and no special or collectors edition to give its true fans! why?! and is this cause sony has a plan to do a GAME OF THE YEAR like EDITION and give all its dlc and what not.if so i mite just wait. this should f had at least some type of freebie besides dlc but a more physical bonus like poster or pin, statue,any type of apparel.sony should be ashamed of their lack of marketing thats been going on.

Looks cool. I’ll be mad if Ratchet and Clank aren’t in the game.

Expecting characters from VANQUISH, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts or any Megaman series (X preferred).

Awesome, are going to be more costumes for these characters, like desert drake or subject delta?, also will certain mercenary with a lucky number 7 and a solid spy with a penchant for cardboard boxes be in the game?

Nice roster so far. I hope Nariko for Heavenly Sword gets drafted into the game. I think would be an epic battle or duo between her and Kratos. Or maybe even my avatar Batisu.

@241: No, I assume that people would have some COMMON SENSE. Which is why COMMON SENSE is called COMMON… because everyone is supposed to have at least a fragment of it. The game a few months away from release and people really believe there’s only 10 characters?

When they first showed the game, they showed a couple. They say IN THIS ARTICLE how they revealed two more at E3 and that two more would be revealed at EVO…

Gee, I guess they’re done! HERP DERP.

Common sense dictates that they’re revealing more characters… *gasp* as time goes on. *LE GASP* All that can be gathered FROM THIS ONE ARTICLE.

Oh i do hope Sackboy joins the ranks

That roster is looking reaaaally weak.

I mean, the most recognizable characters up there aren’t even in their typical costumes/appearances. This is looking like a disaster in the making.

+ DJ_VinylScratch on July 9th, 2012 at 11:21 am said:

They should put in Fiona and Hewie from Haunting Ground.


268

+ DJ_VinylScratch on July 9th, 2012 at 11:24 am said:

And also, Courier 6 from FNV or NCR rangers, scuritrons or legions, idk.


269

+ DJ_VinylScratch on July 9th, 2012 at 11:34 am said:

And this is my third comment, so im going to puta list of eveyone that should be in it:

Fiona and Hewie (Haunting Ground)

someone from FNV (Fallout New Vegas)

Kyoya Suda, who would have an epic 3rd super attack (SIREN)

Shibito (SIREN)

Pyramid Head (Silent Hill)

Chell (Portal)

Lee Everet (The Walking Dead)

James Sunderland (Silent Hill)

And some fun levels to play on would be:

Rapture (BioShock)

The Mojave Wasteland (Fallout New Vegas)

Aperture Laboratories (Portal/Portal 2)

Belli Castle (Haunting Ground)

Hanuda or somewhere within it (SIREN)

Silent Hill (Silent Hill)

One thing i have to say is that this game needs more sword fighting characters. To have that sweeter taste as a natural fighting game is supposed to be. Maybe Cloud,Squal (Leon) from Final Fantasy.Dante from Devil may cry 3 even though hes already in a cross-over fighting game (Marvel vs Capcom 3) (Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3).Or better yet Sora or Roxas from the Kingdom Hearts series.If u want true fighting game players to play this game they most likely want characters like this to be in it.
