Just about all you need to know about the vehicle combat title.
Console launch line ups tend to be on the forgettable side a lot of times with the key exception of 1 or 2 titles. It remains to be seen if the launch of these consoles will be any different to the annuals of time, but at the very least, Sony is bringing quite a diverse line up of first party titles to the PS5. One of those is Destruction AllStars, one of the three next gen only titles coming out on the system, and today we got a nice deep dive in the vehicle-based combat game.
The official PlayStation blog released a good deal of information on the game. It’s arena based and can be played either solo or with teammates in multiplayer. As is obvious, the combat focuses around various vehicles as well as the drivers (you can see a list of those through here). Each hero vehicle has its own abilities such as the Sabre that deploys a blade along the length of the vehicle to slice opponents in half or something more defensive like The Undisputed that activates a huge shield that makes them temporarily indestructible.
The overall combat is mostly vehicle focused, being all about smashing and slamming into your opponents’ cars in the arenas, with well placed hits being devastating. But your driver can actually do damage even after their ride is destroyed, by going to raised platforms to get items and lure those left on the battlefield into deadly traps.
Destruction AllStars will launch alongside the PlayStation 5 on November 12th. The game is also said to get free updates with new modes and features post-launch. A new trailer will also debut soon.
