PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal opens up to PlayStation Plus members this week, giving subscribers exclusive access to the beta, followed by general public release next week. PlayStation Plus subscribers will be getting access to the PS3 version from October 17th 2012.
The beta will open up to everyone else from October 24th 2012. On the PS Vita, everyone will be able to get access to the beta starting tomorrow – no PlayStation Plus subscription required. The beta will support Cross-Play, so PS3 and PS Vita owners will be able to fight with and against each other.
So, what exactly will be in the beta?
- You’ll be able to play as Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Colonel Radec, Sly Cooper, PaRappa and Fat Princess.
- You’ll be able to play in both the Metropolis and Hades stages.
- You’ll be able to try out four-player online tournaments and 2 vs 2 online tournaments. For the 2 vs 2 games we’ll be supporting friend invites, so you and a friend can fight another team online.
