Destruction AllStars seems to be replacing Twisted Metal as Sony’s entry in the vehicular mayhem genre. Not only does it have some high-octane, car-based combat but – based on this new trailer – it also features some playable characters that are just as ridiculous as the iconic drivers from Twisted Metal.
No one will ever replace Sweet Tooth, but Destruction AllStars looks to have put together its own roster of memorable characters. Granted, their background isn’t nearly as grim as the maniacs in Twisted Metal, but they’re an interesting bunch, nonetheless. Destruction AllStars gives you seven unique characters to choose from, each with their own personality, background, and special combat abilities. Learn more about each of them in the video below:
From Ultimo Barricado and Boxtop to Harmony and Jian, there’s an over-the-top driver for everyone. Jian’s special ability seems to be one of the most useful in the game, as it turns their car into a rolling ball of spikes.
Destruction AllStars most interesting aspect, however, is your ability to leave your vehicle entirely and run around the battlefield on foot. It sounds like a one-way ticket to the loser’s podium on paper, but in action, it looks to offer a lot of versatility and opens up new strategies. Most of the stages we’ve seen so far are littered with platforms and ledges that are only accessible on foot, giving you a safe place to hide from the opposition while you plan your next attack.
Destruction AllStars will be available in February as a free PS Plus title. However, it’ll only be available on PS5. The game was originally slated to launch in 2020 but was pushed back a few months due to various issues during development. Despite launching next month, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the game. We’ve only seen it in action a few times, but it’s been more than enough to pique our interest in the exclusive.
