Deadlocked HD has launched on the PlayStation Store in North America. As you know, we worked with Sony to offer Deadlocked HD as a free download for you who bought Full Frontal Assault to make up for the delayed Vita version of that game.
For our friends in Europe, Gladiator doesn’t have a release date yet. Stay tuned for more details as soon as we hear when it will launch in Europe.
Also to note – at this moment, the Deadlocked HD servers are OFFLINE. Sony and Idol Minds are looking into this. We’ll update when we have more details.
How to Download Deadlocked HD:
Due to the special nature of the promotion + cross-buy, it’s a little tricky to download it on the PSN store, this post is to help you find the game.
If you bought Full Frontal Assault on disc: Go to your XMB under the DISC option and you should see DISC BENEFITS. As long as you are logged onto PSN, you should be able then download the Vita versions of FFA and/or Deadlocked HD from that menu.
If you bought Full Frontal Assault digitally on the PSN Store: Due to the special nature of the promotion, this is a little trickier to download. Search the PSN Store for the Vita version of Full Frontal Assault (yes, on your PS3!). Then download it. It should start a download of all three titles (PS3 FFA, Vita FFA, Deadlocked HD). You can then go to your Download List and cancel any unwanted downloads (while leaving Deadlocked HD downloading).
If you haven’t bought Full Frontal Assault: What are you waiting for? It’s a heckuva deal to download Full Frontal Assault (you get both the PS3 and Vita versions) and you also get Deadlocked HD! But if you really really only want ONE Ratchet game today, you should be able to search the store or new release list for Deadlocked HD, which you can purchase for $9.99.
Whew. Think that’s it. We’ll keep you up to date with any updates on the servers.. Have fun in the Dreadzone!
