Dead Space’s Isaac Clarke and God of War’s Zeus Heading to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on March 19th

Today, IGN revealed two brand new DLC characters for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale: Isaac Clarke from Dead Space and Zeus from God of War. Isaac is most similar to Radec, Ratchet, and other ranged characters in the game. He has a variety of different weapons that build AP at mid range and a couple different short range strikes to help him create short combos. He also has mines to aid him in controlling space and an interesting throw that also doubles as a projectile reflect.

Zeus, on the other hand, is more of a straight up brawler. His attacks are slow but build a lot of AP. He can also charge just about every move in his arsenal, granting him super armor and a massive boost to AP gain. A charged neutral square attack builds 95 AP!

Seth Killian walks through both of these new characters in the video below.

In addition to Isaac and Zeus, a brand new DLC stage was revealed as well. The stage mashes up MediEvil and The Unfinished Swan. It starts as a flat board but quickly changes as lobbed ink balls reveal new platforms.

Isaac, Zeus, and the new stage are all set to release for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on March 19th. Pricing details have not yet been revealed, but we can likely expect the cost to fall in line with the previous DLC characters, Kat and Emmet.

    The pricing for each character is $5 each. Which is a total rip off. Thank god I don’t care much for these characters or I’d be pissed.But they need to get their pricing together because that’s a complete rip off if future DLC is gonna be priced that high.

    Yay more marketed for new games characters… can we actually have some actual playstation ALL STARS added to this game maybe? They reject Abe but say yes to these guys just cuz they have new games out. GG Sony.

      I really hate how a fantastic idea like Playstation Allstars could turn into a massive marketing scheme. They’re just putting in characters that have new games coming out and forgetting what made them iconic in the first place. They’ve go to really pull their shit together because these aren’t allstars. They only reason on why I play this game is because of Parappa The Rapper. Atleast they got something right with this game 😛

      zeus is an all star…well this version is..

     I don’t know about this game anymore.
    So this is the final roster?
    The whole thing makes it look like they’d actually add more characters.
    I dunno.
