Occasionally, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale receives updates. These updates may include the following:

  • Glitch/Netcode Fixes
  • Character Balancing
  • Online Stability
  • Addition of new DLC characters, stages, costumes, minions, items, etc.
  • Added features

In order to use the online features of this game, the player must download the latest update.

On August 2, 2013, Sony Santa Monica stated that there would be a substantial balance update slated for late Fall 2013. However, a more recent, unconfirmed statement explained that the update was delayed to early 2014.

Update 1.12Edit

GENERAL CHANGES

  • Isaac’s alternate “Elite Advanced Suit” costume and Zeus’ alternate “Young Zeus” costume have been unlocked.
