[embedded content] On Tuesday, March 21, Sony will release the free The Ark of Time – Raven’s Choice DLC for Gravity Rush 2 in North America, Europe, and Japan, the company announced. Raven’s Choice was originally expected to be paid DLC, but when Gravity Rush 2 was delayed from late 2016 to January 2017, Game Director Keiichiro Toyama announced that it would be free. “This DLC features a brand new story for Gravity Rush 2 focusing on Kat’s partner, Raven,” Sony says. “Alone, Raven must battle to save the Lost Children who were left trapped inside the Ark at the end of the first Gravity Rush.” The Japanese PlayStation Blog adds (translated by Gematsu) that the DLC will also bring some enhancements to the main game: the highest level of the Devool Trench Mine will raise from 30 to 50, and the rarity of Talismans will also increase.

If you’re wondering why you can’t do the online challenge missions in Gravity Rush 2 this weekend, there’s a logical answer. The official PlayStation Twitter account announced today that the first-party title’s online servers will be down this weekend as it’s “undergoing maintenance and will be back online early next week.” They also thanked users for their patience. The general response on social media was a lot of gamers being surprised that the Sony Japan developed title featured online functionality. While it doesn’t feature online multiplayer, it does allow players to compete in online challenge missions, go on treasure hunts, and share photos. So, while the core Gravity Rush 2 experience won’t really be impacted by the servers being offline, there are slightly less side activities to do. Despite the inconveniences, players should still be able to have a good time this weekend with the action game. In PlayStation LifeStyle’s review of the title, reviewer Keri Honea had this to say about the highly anticipated sequel: Gravity Rush 2 lacks quite a bit in the story department, even with the side missions, but the improved combat and series-unique exploration make it difficult to put the game down. Even when Kat’s flailings are incredibly…
