Take a Closer Look at Kratos and Radec in PlayStation All-Stars
Posted by Sammy Barker
The entire contents of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale may have leaked online, but there’s still plenty left to learn about the game’s bulging roster. Filling in the gaps, Sony has released a brand new series on the PlayStation Blog providing in-depth strategy videos for each of the title’s big-name brawlers.
First up are Kratos and Radec, who shouldn’t need much introduction to PlayStation fans. Starting with the former, lead combat designer Paul Edwards explained that the studio “wanted to pay proper homage to Kratos” so it included some of the character's most iconic weapons from the God of War series. Available implements include the Blades of Chaos (duh), Apollo’s Bow, and the Blade of Olympus, which factors into the anti-hero's Super moves.
Kratos is described as a “simple character for beginners while having a lot of depth for more advanced players to explore”.
Meanwhile, Killzone 2's infamous villain, Radec, boasts a slightly more technical play style. He focuses on long-range combat, and uses unique Helghast technology such as the cloak and combat knife. Edwards continues that Radec is very good at controlling space via his VC32 Sniper Rifle and VC21 Boltgun. He also has access to grenades, but is very weak in close combat.
You can check out both of the characters in action courtesy of the new trailers below. Who do you think would win out of a fight between Kratos and Radec?
