Sony Santa Monica has been completely silent since inheriting Super Bot Entertainment’s, Playstation Allstars Battle Royale. Well, up until today, that is. Santa Monica wrote a “Support Update” on their community forums that you can read in full length here. But, they didn’t have good news.
I’ll summarize for you:
1. No more DLC characters or stages – “There will not be any new DLC characters or environments released for PS All Stars. We were proud to work with SuperBot Entertainment and they created a great game, but the characters that have already been released to-date represent the full content for PS All Stars.”
2. Pre-order costumes for Dante, Raiden, Heihachi, and Big Daddy will be released on PSN for free on August 27.
3. Both Zeus and Isaac are still owed their third costumes. Those will be released on PSN, for free “later this fall.”
4. A possible patch is coming “later this fall.” – “This is still in the early stages of research and development. Even if everything goes smoothly with the development and implementation, the patch will not be finished until later this fall. In particular, we’re assessing all character strengths, weaknesses, and functionality for adjustment considerations in this patch. We have been monitoring your feedback in the forums, and will continue to follow your thoughts throughout the process.”
This is such a shame, as PS Allstars is such a great game. But, this is a perfect example of what happens when games don’t sell. Speak with your wallet and support things you like and care about. We can only hope and dream that a sequel comes to the PS4, somewhere down the road. Until then, you can find me tearing it up with Good Cole until the servers are shut down. Long live All-stars!
