Next PlayStation All-Stars DLC to Add Isaac Clarke and Zeus (Plus a MediEvil / Unfinished Swan Mash-up Stage!)

Two more challengers are joining the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale cast next month, including Dead Space‘s Isaac Clarke and the almighty King of the Gods himself, Zeus from God of War.

Zeus doesn’t strike me as a PlayStation all-star — he’s an antagonist to Kratos but far from being an iconic gaming character gamers associate with the PlayStation brand. The same can be said of Isaac, but he’s a good choice since at least Dead Space is a popular modern franchise. Obviously there are plenty of other classic characters still MIA, but remember that Sony can’t just go plucking characters from other studios without permission. I’m sure they’d love to have Spyro and Crash Bandicoot on the roster, but Activision has to agree first.

Cooler than the new characters is the next fighting venue, which mashes up MediEvil‘s graveyard with ink splashes and a mid-match whiteout from The Unfinished Swan. Now that kicks ass.

This “Graveyard” stage will go on sale March 19th for $1.99, though it’ll be playable for free during online ranked matches should you not want to throw more money at the game to have the map for offline play. On the same day, Isaac Clarke and Zeus will be made available for $4.99 each. (Bummer, they aren’t free for a limited time like the previous DLC fighters.) However, if you pick up a copy of God of War: Ascension, launching the week prior, you’ll find a voucher packed inside the box granting free access to the two DLC characters.
