PlayStation Plus: Skullgirls Encore Free for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on May 12, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

Skullgirls Encore boasts some really unique characters. This fighter’s roster is comprised of mainly females (hence, “Skullgirls” and not “Skullpeople”) and includes really oddball personalities. There’s Cerebella, an orphaned circus performer who happens to have a kick-ass living hat with massive arms, the feline-esque Ms. Fortune who cannot die since she swallowed a Life Gem (making dismemberment part of her playstyle), and Double, an amorphous character that can transform into anything, but usually hangs out in as a nun. The game has a fantastic art style, and the Encore version includes gameplay updates, balance changes and new stages and music.

We’ve got some discounts below for our members as well, including a sale on content for some Free to Play titles like DC Universe Online, Blacklight Retribution and Dust 514.

You can download Skullgirls Encore after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, May 13th.

Skullgirls is a nice game for people who don’t already have it. Wasn’t really a fan of the online mode but the single player was fun at times. Can’t wait till next month to see the new plus additions hopefully we can see beyond two souls join. Also twisted metal or mortal kombat would be nice ones to get added. I have a feeling all stars will be added which I already have and in my eyes 9 out of 10 people already have the game.

God enough of the indies with plus already!
I’m not trying to sound like a whiny little kid but seriously, indies are the worst. Almost all indies are awful little mobile quality titles upscaled in higher res for consoles.

Stop with the indies! So far, April and May plus updates have NOT been impressive. Who runs Plus anyways? Why do we keep getting these low quality games?

June is hopefully at least decent or else I don’t think I’ll be renewing!

I wish you could edit replies. This is irritating having to post numerous times. Oh well. Anyways:

If I may, I want to recommend something:
You should stop giving us indies. Even if you have to give us “Older” titles, that would be much preferred to these games. Indies feel like mobile games with a high res graphic engine on a console. I hate them, and I know many others do too. You should see my poll on the PS Forums general section about the IGC. Many said the same.
Hopefully you actually take feedback to heart. I look forward to June’s plus update only because I am hoping its actually good, unlike this month and April which has been awful.

Also, like last year and the year before, will june completely swap out the entire IGC for different titles? I hope so.

Fantastic sale guys!

DC Universe Online is my favorite MMO, but I haven’t picked up any expansions yet due to deleting the game off my hard drive to save space. . looks like the perfect time to collect for whenever i can upgrade my hard drive or get a ps4!

Hi Kristine, how are you doing?
I just have a little question for you, do you know anything about some offer or something like that in Motorstorm Apocalypse?
I’m eager to try out my new 3D Bravia and I’ve been told that MS:A is by far, one of the best titles to show off 3D.

Best,
A proud Sony User.

I’m a Vita owner, and I still haven’t seen anything that convinces me on becoming a plus member. There sure are a few games that called my attention and that I don’t own… but nothing extraordinaire.

give us a good sale already! PS3 got the amazing flash sale last week, and all we got was Guacamelee from the japan golden week, and nothing else…

Stop giving us the “you bought a joystick, deal with it” treatment…

What sets these two apart? “DC Universe Online: Ultimate Edition Starter Pack” and “DC Universe Online: Ultimate Edition”. S slight price difference.

I might get into this game, is this cross buy between PS3 and PS4? Is there a monthy subscription or is this a “lifetime” purchase price?

Thanks.

    Just looked into this for you and found that the The Ultimate Editions are different platforms, hence different prices. The PS4 one is slightly cheaper than PS3. Your more DCUO specific questions can probably be answered by the game’s official Twitter feed @DCUO.
