We hope you’ve been keeping track of all the recent updates on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale news, from an in-depth update on the PS Vita version to our behind-the-scenes look at mashing up different worlds, we’ve shown you what this game is shaping up to be…and we think it’s high time you try it out for yourselves!

Today, we’re happy to announce that the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Beta will kick off for PlayStation Plus members on PS3 tomorrow, October 16th and expand to everyone October 23rd through PlayStation Store! What’s more, as a special treat, PS Vita users will be able dive right into the multiplayer beta starting tomorrow – no Plus subscription required. The Beta will support Cross-Play, so PS3 and PS Vita owners will be able to fight with and against each other.

So what will be in this limited Beta?

  • You’ll be able to play as Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Colonel Radec, Sly Cooper, PaRappa, and Fat Princess.
  • You’ll be able to play in both the Metropolis and Hades stages.
  • You’ll be able to try out four-player online tournaments and 2 v 2 online tournaments. For the 2 v 2 games we’ll be supporting friend invites, so you and a friend can fight another team online.

This, of course, is only a tiny fraction of what PlayStation All-Stars has to offer, but we thought you’d love the chance to try it early and see what all the buzz is about. Be sure to hop on quickly as we’ll be ending the Beta on October 30th!

But that’s not all. As you know, we have a pre-order program running right now that unlocks a set of exclusive costumes in the game. Today we’re happy to unveil the rest of the costumes you’ll be getting with your pre-order of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale: Pre-order bonus skins

Unlocked with your pre-order at participating retailers, these costumes will work for both the PS3 and PS Vita when it releases on November 20th, so be sure to reserve your copy today. And don’t forget: PlayStation All-Stars features Cross-Buy support, so if you purchase the PS3 version, you’ll get a downloadable PS Vita version for no extra cost.

With Beta access beginning tomorrow, we look forward to getting your feedback on the game and seeing what you think of this highly anticipated title. Spread the word and we’ll see you online!

I just don’t understand. Sony has all these other new release games on Day 1 digital pre-order, but they don’t even have a game made by one of their inside house studios as a pre-order? WTH? Even if you don’t want to give the pre-order costume bonus to those who buy the game digital, at least make it available day one.

What a bummer. I guess I will buy a different game.

People need to use common sense. I’ve seen that this is confirmed day one digital on PS3 but just won’t have preorders. Also, how many times have they given the DLC as a first week buyers bonus on PSN? Damn people love to jump the gun. I’m sure it wasn’t a problem when almost nobody with the physical release of LBP PSV got the damn DLC, and all the digital buyers got it with no problem. People can be so ungreatful. Now I like the classic Jak is a costume but couldn’t it be a exact version of the first game jak and not just his clothes. Oh well.

It has nothing to do with being ungrateful. It just doesn’t make sense that they allow pre-orders for 3rd party games, but not their 1st party games.

The costumes are nice, but I don’t care about them that much. I just want a confirmation that the game will be available on the PSN Store day 1, which I haven’t seen yet and they haven’t made clear. The only thing they have made clear is that it will be available on the PSN Store sometime.

Quick question, to those who don’t preorder the game, will these costumes be available on the psn store as a separate purchase?

When buying the PS3 version, do we have to buy a digital version of the PS3 game to get the free download on Vita, or can it be a physical PS3 version as well?

Nothing I can do now because I’m in class, but when I left for the university at 11am this game wasn’t on the network. From what I have been reading online right now is that it’s 2:09pm and the game is still not online yet.. I was under the impression that the store updated around 12pm.. I could be wrong on this one, but does anyone have confirmation on this yet?

VaizardStevan said:

October 16th, 11:12 am

Also I had to confirm that this is and I am in the eastern timezone, it’s 2:13pm here, but my posts are timed at 11:13am?? Why is this?
