Zeus and Isaac Join the Battle Royale Today

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC 2

Just stopping by today with a quick reminder that Zeus and Isaac Clarke are live today for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, along with our new stage “Graveyard”!

Graveyard mashes up MediEvil’s zombies, mausoleums, and gargoyles with elements from The Unfinished Swan, revealed via ink splats after a mid-game whiteout. It looks great and keeps the fighting honest, with a medium-width playfield and zombies that will earn you AP when destroyed.

Zeus plays as a legendary heavyweight, making each strike feel epic. He’s got limited range, but with the ability to power up every attack merely by holding down the button, he can crush a cowardly opponent’s guard and build AP faster than anyone. Many of his triangle lightning attacks are also excellent at catching multiple opponents for an even faster ride towards his truly Olympian level 3 super.

Isaac Clarke is at his best harassing opponents from mid-range, with a wide variety of projectiles powered up by his unique Stasis and Kinesis powers. He’s no slouch at close range either, with some mighty melee attacks and the short-range force gun, but he shines brightest harassing more distant opponents with the grenade launcher, bouncing bola, and his Plasma Cutter.

Both characters come with full single-player story modes, including intros, outros, and rival scenes, as well as exclusive unlockable minions, a second unlockable costume, and all the unique customizable taunts, themes, etc. you’ve come to expect.

In addition to today’s launch of Zeus and Isaac, we’ve also done a new balance patch, which modifies every existing character in some way (and fixes some pesky glitches), as well as adding some new bells and whistles to familiar items. The hardcore players can check out the details here in the official PlayStation All-Stars forums.

Isaac and Zeus both come free for anyone that purchased a retail copy of God of War: Ascension (it’ll be in your box as a pack-in code). For anyone else, you can pick them up on PSN for $4.99 each. The Graveyard stage is available for free in online ranked matches and is $1.99 to own it. Both of these new All-Stars add some very unique angles to the game. I’ll see you online.

Zeus who hasn’t an unique game, is in PSASBR, and GABE LOGAN, who IS a true PlayStation icon since PS1, ISN’T in PSASBR.

Can we have respect for this ***** game? I guess not.

Well, this may be another third party butI would like to see a BORDERLANDS Character in the game, my own opinion I think Maya would be a good choice because she has guns and powers (and the fact I think there needs to be more female characters in the game), for example, square attacks could be melee attacks, Triangle could be guns, and Circle could use Siren Attacks. Supers could use elements from borderlands such as Rocket launchers, vehicles, and other supernatural things. Claptrap would make a nice minion too, but that is just my opinion, I know it’s weird.

Also, I may not know much about it, but Jodie Holmes from BEYOND: TWO SOULS, would make a nice addition too, since she is connected with an entity with supernatural powers, though I don’t know anything about Beyond two souls gameplay. She and Maya would make a good rival battle.

For PS3 users, you can now search: Playstation All-stars Battle Royale on the store – check it’s Add-ons & look for the DLC.

Yes, there’s a 9.99$ bundle with both characters & the new Graveyard stage.

Thank you Seth & Sony & Superbot for making such an awesome game and all your hard work…I dont care what any negative comment says about anything because I myself love this game to death..

@LivingDisaster07 i agree i think there should be more female characters in this game.

I’ve got a couple hours left in my second playthough to platinum Ascension, then it’s time to download the stage and give Isaac a try.

I hope this is just the next great DLC installment of many more to come. Maybe we can get some cross promotion with The Last of Us too. Joel and a Chimera? A Sound Shapes stage mashup? Or maybe an agreement can finally be made for Naughty Dog’s early icon, Crash? Puppeteer with Kutaro and Rayman?

Dont u think the DLC is overpricing a little, i mean $10 for 2 *cough* characters and a stage? i would be okay if they were crash, cloud sora or spyro but unrequested characters for that much? better have more DLC cuz im buying it to show some support thats all!

I hope a Legend of Dragoon rep gets in eventually. It shouldn’t be too hard to get since LoD is a genuine sony-developed first party game.
Heck, I’d be willing to pay ten dollars just for Dart Feld alone.

And no trophies for any part of this.. Just a heads up people.

Thanks for adding the characters as a bonus for those who bought GOW Ascension new.

I’m happy to pay 2$ for a lvl, but there isn’t a game in the world that I would pay 5$ just for a character.

10$ for all three isn’t too bad, considering DLC practices these days, but still more than I’d pay for unless there’s a character I love in the package. Just my two cents.

I haven’t played yet today but looking forward to trying out the new dlc, I hope we get to see more characters in the future/a sequel.

Getting The Unfinished Swan Stage soon, the other two can wait indefinitely, I’d buy Solid Snake and Cloud Strife as soon as they hit the store and pay 10 dollars for each one, also Kat still rules.

Well I’ll be the first to say it.. Y’all kinda f’d up on this dlc.. It says the advanced suit is the extra costume for issac, but its totally the basic engineering suit.. Not the dead space 2 advanced suit.. Fix it superbot

Where’s Abe? Prinny? ANY RPG related character at all?

lolzeus, scraping for ideas with that one.

Is it possible to release the list of nerfs and boughs to each characters made to. I’ve seen a list of the amount each character will recieve but not a list of attacks that got nerfed or boughed. Ethan Mars, ICO, Wander and Scarlett Blake for PASBR!

i thought you said there is going to be trophy’s

please reply

+ twistedfloyd on March 20th, 2013 at 9:25 am said:

Nice update. Good looking level and character. But if you guys were to put Snake or Big Boss in there, I’d pay 10 dollars for either one. Either one of those would fly off the digital store shelves!

Nice DLC, happy I got the two character free with GoW! It would be sick if Santa Monica would make a stage that is a mix of The Last of Us and Dead Nation. And they should introduce Joel as a playable character. :P

Why no trophies?

+ Vanaja-89 on March 20th, 2013 at 10:04 pm said:

Can we have Crash Bandicoot and Spyro The Dragon as DLC? If you check PSASBR forum you can see how much the fans want them, and they have even created a campaign to contact Activision wich have the rights to them!

+ Nomad-PhX on March 20th, 2013 at 11:10 pm said:

i think there should be a mokujin type character (fighting style is a random character each round) based off that polygonal head, you could call him “Currently Undergoing Maintenance”

snake is dead to me after super smash bros. so he probably wont be joining playstation all stars anyways.

why not Captain Quark as well? he seems like a decent addition.

Ryu frim ninja gaiden perhaps….

To almost everyone making posts about new characters:
PlayStation All Stars is a game about Playstation exclusive characters.

This means no Final Fantasy, no Kingdom Hearts and no Crash Bandicoot. Even if there were awesome characters in these games, they are not Playstation exclusives at all – if you didn’t know that allready, wake up.

+ Viva_Bagel on March 21st, 2013 at 10:46 pm said:

@123,
No, it’s not.
Half of the roster is filled with 3rd party characters, emphasis on THIRD PARTY.
On another topic, Santa Monica should really just have a poll on characters they can make and have fans vote, that or just bring the community down hill, hey they fired Superbot so here’s hoping this game lasts another 4 months.

Nice, i also have a few suggestions for some characters…

*lightning from final fantasy

*Alex Mercer
-Sgt. James Heller as alternate or dlc costume

*sora from kingdom hearts

*crash bandicoot

*spyro

*Ezio auditore

*Lora Croft

Just a few ideas, hope that at least one of them makes it in ^-^
