Meet the cast
Only six of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royales characters have been revealed, and weve played them all. Check out this gallery for details on everyone who has been shown so far.
Kratos, the God of War, plays exactly as youd expect Kratos to play. His basic attacks involve him lashing out with the Blades of Chaos, executing moves in the same manner as he does in the God of War games. He also has access to Helioss head, a bow, and the wings of Icarus.
Yeah, Fat Princess is in the game. We didnt get a chance to play as her for too long, but we did try out some of her mechanics, and found her surprisingly fun to play. Different directional attacks have her throwing different characters from Fat Princess into battle, tossing knights, mages, and archers around the battlefield. She can also ride a giant chicken, so you know, theres that.
Sly is one of the faster characters we played as, with skills that benefit from getting behind a character and unleashing a barrage of attacks. Luckily, he has a trick up his sleeve instead of blocking, he simply disappears, making it easy to escape enemy attacks and sneak up on foes.
Twisted Metals signature scary clown was the heaviest hitter we played as, with dash moves that smacked enemies across the map. Beyond that, he had the ability to swing chainsaws, fire shotguns, drop mines, and even get into a giant mech suit as his ultimate Power Attack.
KillzonesRadec was the best fighting from afar, using a sniper rifle as his main weapon. It was absolutely brutal when we were able to pick off our opponents from across the map, and changed the dynamic of every fight. His first Power Attack, however, was hard to hit, and felt like the weakest of the bunch.
Parappa learned kung-fu from Master Onion remember? He puts it to good use, chopping up foes in melee. He can also drop a boom box that spawns orbs that help buff his Power meter, which lets him ride a skateboard which, surprisingly, might have been one of the strongest Power Attacks on display.
Who else is up for a fight?
This roster is just a small part of the big cast the game will have, but, so far, we can only speculate as to who else might be playable in the game. Check out our list of our dream PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale roster to see who else we hope makes the cut.
