Following last week’s news, I’d like to talk more about the game itself, so let’s talk about what you can expect when you download a copy from PlayStation Plus next February * and a breakdown of the game modes you can play solo. Teams with AI, or online multiplayer friends and rivals.
Mayhem plays like a classic deathmatch. Playable with scrolo and teams, it will damage and destroy as many enemies as possible within the time limit. The player with the highest score wins. Sounds familiar, but can you control the confusion by mastering the balance of action between the vehicle and the character?
Put everything you learned in Mayhem on the Carnado line. Playable both solo and as a team, with a focus on risk and reward. Earn gear (All Stars collectable in-game items) to damage or destroy your competitors. These are automatically saved in the vehicle. Sacrifice your vehicle by driving it to Carnado and earning points. Go back on foot and get a new vehicle or steal one from your opponent to quickly earn points. The more wrecked you get, the more gear you can get.
Stockpiling is our view of capture and management. In this team-based mode, if you destroy or knock out an enemy, your gear will fall to the floor. Collect gear on foot and drive through the car gauntlets to one of the three banks around the map. Stand in the bank to deposit Gears and charge the team. This is a battle for bank ownership. The team with the most banks wins at the end of the game.
16 All Stars will enter the arena, but only one will win. In gridfall, it’s important to use all your skills to stay in the game as the arena moves away from under the wheels. Destroy enemies from the edge of the map or find temporary safety on the platform above. If a player is wrecked or knocked out, they will exchange respawns and return to the game. If you run out of respawns, you’ll be eliminated! The winner is the last All Star position.
This is the game mode at launch, but what else can you expect from Destruction All Stars at launch?
Visit the training area, complete the tutorial and practice with one of the 16 All Stars.
Play Genesis’ “One Small Step” challenge series to unlock character and player cosmetics through a series of carefully selected challenging events against AI.
Access the expanding wardrobe of cosmetics in All Stars and player profiles. Unlock items as you play the Challenge Series and level up in multiplayer to earn All Star coins for the items you need.
But that’s not all …
The team closely monitors community discussions and engages with players to integrate player feedback through regular updates. We will also extend Destruction All Stars through future content drops such as seasons, events and updates during 2021, including new game modes. Expectations:
- New All Stars
- New challenge series
- new function
The team will come back at a later date to give you more information about our upcoming season. Until then, stay tuned for All Star action.
*Access to the game at launch is only available for a limited time with a PlayStation Plus subscription (sold separately). Internet connection required.
