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.
