PlayStation 3 owners with PlayStation Plus memberships will have access beginning October 16th, while the open beta will be available for everyone else one week later, on October 23rd. PlayStation Vita owners can also enter the beta tomorrow without a PlayStation Plus membership, and the beta will support Cross-Play, allowing Vitas and PlayStation 3s to duke it out together.
The beta will include Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Colonel Radec, Sly Cooper, PaRappa, and Fat Princess in the Metropolis and Hades stages. It will support four-player and two-on-two online tournaments, with the latter supporting friend invites to create two-person teams.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is set for a November 20th release on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Check out the action in the beta's announcement trailer above.
