96w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian has announced today that Kat and Emmett are joining Battle Royale as part of the first PlayStation All-Stars DLC for free!

Below are the details, as follows: What? Me again? Wasn't I just here to let you know that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale had gone gold?

Have you ever wondered what dev teams do after a game goes gold? If all is going well, often times they get down to business with DLC. And in fact that's exactly what we have begun.

I'm here today to announce the first DLC characters that will be joining the All-Stars roster: Kat from Gravity Rush, and Starhawk's Emmett Graves!

In addition to the signature weapons you'll remember from his duels with the Outcasts on Dust, Emmett's playstyle will also utilize Starhawk's unique "Build and Battle" system, calling down help from the sky.

Kat's approach turns gravity on its head with some mind-bending new ways to move as she positions herself for her unique brand of aerial assault. Together, they make up one of the most original duos in All-Stars.

These DLC All-Stars still have a long way to go before they're ready to be shown off, but we wanted to let you know what the team will be working on now that we've gone...

When designing the game's structure we intended to provide ongoing variety as crucially as the instant appeal you'd expect from a "karting" game.

Firstly, along with the typical race event, we have introduced a host of other modes of racing. There are eight in total, each requiring unique skills and strategy – some will feel instantly familiar to gamers, and some will feel entirely fresh and unique.

For example, we've introduced Refuel mode - based on the principles of fuel strategy in F1, where fuel re-stocks are placed around the track, but carrying less fuel means more speed. Or Trophy Chase mode, a smash and grab event where players collect trophies, found both on the track and stolen from other drivers.

Gamers should feel instantly at home with other modes such as Sector Snatch mode, where players can own sectors of each track by setting the fastest split time though it, or racing in a classic Elimination mode.
