The first batch of DLC for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is apparently free, and it’ll include – as everyone knows – Kat from Gravity Rush, Graves from Starhawk and a WipEout-esque battle arena.
After that, though, it’s widely expected that DLC won’t be quite so generously priced, although up until today we’ve had no idea how much that future DLC might cost.
Now though, thanks to one keen eyed forum poster, it looks like we have a rough figure: £2, or $3.
The news comes from Sony’s own ‘PlayStation Ultimate Matchup‘ site, which is some kind of Facebook-based competition. The rules page of said site lists the value of certain possible prizes, including one “PlayStation® All-Stars Battle Royale DLC Pack digital voucher” which has a value of “$3″.
Comprehensive? Locked down? Confirmed? Hardly. But it does give us an idea – the DLC Pack (whatever that might be) will cost $3 if it’s not won. About two quid, then.
It’s likely that each batch of DLC will include two characters and a map
Developers Superbot were recently hiring for something that looked just like a sequel to Battle Royale, which is encouraging to see after relatively poor sales for the first game in the UK and elsewhere. The game is actually rather good, and scored 9/10 here on TSA.
