Gamers who have been waiting to get their hands on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale can do so soon since Sony have announced the game will receive a public beta this Fall. Right now a few lucky gamers are already having a merry time with the Sony based brawler via the closed beta, but in the coming weeks everyone will have a shot to experience PS All-Stars firsthand themselves.
Thankfully Sony is slightly throwing a bone to PS Plus subscribers as members of Sony’s special PSN service will automatically get into the beta. Exactly when such a thing will happen still hasn’t been revealed, but it could happen soon seeing as how the game is bound for release in mid-October. Those who aren’t part of PlayStation Plus won’t have to wait too long as codes will be sent to gamers in the coming weeks in addition to giveaways and things of that nature.
SuperBot Entertainment’s President Chan Park also addressed the recent mega leak that occurred this weekend. In case you didn’t see it, several key files were extracted from the current closed beta that’s underway for PS All-Stars which resulted in several characters and stages being revealed such as Nariko, Ratchet, and a Killzone inspired level.
Speaking of the beta leak Chan said, “We’ve enjoyed reading all of the fan reaction and are thrilled that so many of you are excited to learn more about our character roster and level mash-ups, however we are still in development and the leaked content does not fully represent the final product nor the incredible efforts that were made to make these elements truly spectacular.”
It was nice for Chan not to tiptoe around the leak that occurred and act like everything that came out if it was false, even if the evidence was there. The response from Chan may have still been the standard politician style response we’re sometimes accustomed to receiving from game developers as it does seem like the beta leak pretty much did reveal all the key content the game has in store for us. But with that said I do agree with Chan’s points that we still haven’t really seen the full effect that the stages and characters will offer since we haven’t seen a single snippet of new footage yet.
We know that there’s a Killzone and Uncharted stage in PS All-Stars but the magic hasn’t exactly been spoiled since we don’t know how those stages will react in the game and how folks like Dante and Sir Dan will feel to control. Though to be honest I still think it's dumb to have Evil Cole in the game but that's an issue I can talk about for hours.
Knowing that a beta will soon begin may make the wait for PS All-Stars that more difficult, but we can at least have some of our hunger satisfied as the game will be heavily featured at Gamescom this month.
