Despite Destruction AllStars being one of Sony’s first party launch titles for the PS5 this November, we haven’t seen or heard much from the game since its initial reveal. It will see an interesting mix of vehicle combat and Fortnite-esque art and characters in a free for all. Like Fortnite, too, a lot goes into the characters, and we got a lot of details for those now via the official PlayStation blog.
The game will launch with 16 AllStars, which you can see below. It’s quite a diverse cast of various characters, and they also have their own abilities. For instance, Lupita will drop trails of fire that causes burning damage to vehicle and KO characters, Boxtop will spawn parcels that buff teammates while causing explosive damage to enemies, or Ultimo Barricado who can become invincible to incoming attacks from both vehicles and characters. You’ll have to mix and match and find which ones you like the best. AllStars are also said to have active rivalries which will unfold in cinematics, alongside cosmetics to really give your AllStar their own identity.
Speaking of which, it was also revealed that the game will have a Digital Deluxe Edition. It will include the full game, a legendary character and vehicle skin, a dance emote, 4 banners, 5 avatars and 10,000 AllStar Currency that can be used to purchase more customizations. You can see it detailed below. Both it and the regular edition of Destruction AllStars will launch alongside the PS5 on November 12th.
