PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Public Beta This Fall

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Hey everyone! Last week, SuperBot Entertainment and PlayStation invited a small group of players to get a hands-on preview of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale as part of our early development beta. We’re beginning to test our servers and connectivity issues and this is just the beginning as we work toward rolling out a public beta to the entire PlayStation nation this Fall. As part of this exclusive access, players were able to take control of characters such as Kratos, Sweet Tooth, PaRappa the Rapper, Colonel Radec, Sly Cooper, and Fat Princess and battle in environments such as Dreamscape, Metropolis, Sandover Village, and Hades. The feedback we’re receiving from beta testers has been highly encouraging and valuable, helping us craft the best online multiplayer fighting experience possible.

In addition, there was an unexpected and unintended leak in our beta that allowed fans to be able to see some additional content. We’ve enjoyed reading all of the fan reaction and are thrilled that so many of you are excited to learn more about our character roster and level mash-ups, however we are still in development and the leaked content does not fully represent the final product nor the incredible efforts that were made to make these elements truly spectacular. This will be evident in the coming weeks as this content is officially revealed, beginning with our next character announcement at Gamescom in a couple of weeks.

While just a small group now, in the coming weeks we will continue to send out batches of codes as we gradually expand the beta; so keep your eyes open. You just might receive an invitation to join! Keep checking back with the blog for more information around the public beta, starting with early access to PlayStation Plus members.

If you’re having this much fun with the game now, we think you’re going to be thrilled with all the great stuff coming in the final product!

66

+ SnoochyBoochiez on August 2nd, 2012 at 9:53 am said:

Spyro and Crash will be the debating factor to see if I get this game. Polygon Man as a boss fight?


67

+ Naijaplaya3 on August 2nd, 2012 at 9:57 am said:

Please Superbot I hope you guys consider a well known character like Wander from Shadow of the Colossus(also ICO from the game ICO)
he is an iconic ps2 character and his game is considered to be one of the best ever.
Also it would be cool if you could add Kat from Gravity Rush as character. Also i want to mention characters from the psone era just to remind you like Alundra, Dart from legend of dragoon and Arc the Lad. I wish that you could also surprise use with more psone era characters, since the leaked rosterr is not the full one

I think I would love this game and will probably get it, but I would feel much better about it, if say, I got a closed beta code maybe. PLEASE!


78

+ MushThePainter on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:12 am said:

+ Shadow-Man_4 on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:14 am said:

I got my invite and played a few matches already. I have to admit, I was pretty surprised with how fun this game turns out to be, and I hope there are more characters incoming for us to try in the Beta!

One thing that I have posted about in the Beta forums already, where are the Devs on the forums? I can’t see anyone posting or talking to us. Will you guys join us the conversations anytime soon? And what did the last patch include?

I would love to get a beta code to this game. I have been waiting for it to be released since they announced it. It appears to be the perfect fighting game.


83

+ xGhostReapeRxx on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:18 am said:

what i dont get is how come when they said crash bandicoot cant be in this because he wasnt a ps only character anymore why is the big daddy in it when he originally started on xbox 360 and later was added to ps3 whats up with that?


84

+ MurderousEmcee on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:18 am said:

So if you have PSN plus you automatically get the beta before everyone?


85

+ sagake on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:20 am said:

hope so


86

+ Gintoki-w on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:21 am said:

Thank you for your hard working

but I still hope to play as Specter ( Ape Escape 2 costume ) when the game come out ! so could you add him to the roster ? :)

I’ll pre-order if you do !

Good Luck .

hope is like the beta in hong-kung

+ freshprincepbg on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:37 am said:

I really hope you guys have better characters under your sleeves, particularly 3rd party characters, as I haven’t seen one I liked so far. So far the roster is disappointing :(

I wouldn’t be mad if you replaced characters either, *cough* Dante, Raiden, Evil Cole *cough*


89

+ ArchAngelMai on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:45 am said:

I am patient, I can wait for the PS+ early access. Hopefully the public beta will have access to all characters announced at that time. We appreciate your hard work and dedication to your fans and your work!

+ zferolie on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:50 am said:

Ah, glad to hear that there will be more and more people in the beta’s. As a huge Smash Bros fan, I cannot wait for this game.

As for the leaks, I happy to see you guys addressing them, as well as to hear that there are still a bunch of surprises. As much as I liked what I saw with the leaked characters, I was a little disappointed with there being only 2 females, and no representation on more japanese games(RPGS and such). This gives me hope that we will see more interesting characters. Also… I hope Evil Cole is just a Pallet swap… because that’s a bad idea.

My wishlist:

Crash, Spyro, Kat(Gravity Rush), Sora(though I see this as an issue with Disney as well), A FF character, and a Disgaea/Nippon Ichi character.


92

+ Buds4Jax15 on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:51 am said:

I feel pretty special that I stumbled on a beta code (THANK YOU TODD PAPY) but I was on the fence about this game but now that I have had hands on time with beta I will be buying day one. I love being sly cooper he has powerful supers. But hate play against players that are good with radec and sweet tooth. Radec has.strong supers and can snip you from any where on arena. I can’t wait to try out more characters and maps. Nathan drake and the uncharted map u know will be awesome.


93

+ zferolie on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:51 am said:

Had to break my comment into 2 parts :p

I really hope someone from Nippon Ichi comes to this game. They have been supporting Playstation for many MANY years, and have brought some great games, mainly the Disgaea series. Right now I am worried you guys are just going to be catering to the western players. That’s cool, but I think it would be unwise to ignore characters that may be more popular in Japan, and Disgaea would be a great series to use for that. I recommend Etna, since she is probably one of the most well known in the series, and you can use Prinnies with her attacks.

Other characters that may appeal to the Japanese(as well as americans of course), would be other RPG characters, like Lightning, KOSMOS, and even Neptune (Purple Heart) from the very popular(mainly in japan but also here kinda) Hyperdimension Neptunia. She is the Humanized version of the PS3 after all.

+ ccrogers15 on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:54 am said:

PLEASE SUPER BOT! CONTACT ACTIVISION AND ALLOW SPYRO (Insomniac version) AND CRASH (Naughtydog version) TO JOIN! PLEASE???


96

+ ccrogers15 on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:55 am said:

@ ThaWhiplash

When the time comes, all plus members will be randomly selected to join the beta first. A month later, sign ups for non plus members will start.


97

+ BlazingAce197 on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:56 am said:

Wow, good news. I’m really hoping that i’ll get a code before fall. Been wanting to get into this since a beta was first announced. Any ideas how much earlier us + members will get access?


98

+ Dark-Doomday on August 2nd, 2012 at 10:59 am said:

I hop get the beta. I have playstation plus but I did not buy it yet because I’m safeing.


99

+ Shadow_Kamui on August 2nd, 2012 at 11:00 am said:

I really hope they reconsider take the Dante from ninja theory out that is an insult for the game they should put Dante from DMC 1,2,3 or 4 or trade him for other character then will be a perfect game again.
Dante from Ninja Theory is a waste slot really change him.
