Those of you still engaged in vehicular combat will be pleased to learn that Sony’s adding a new set of wheels to Twisted Metal’s garage today. Axel, the former pre-order bonus, will be available to everyone that updates the game to its latest version.

The two-wheeled motorised menace – which has become a fond favourite of Twisted Metal fans over the years – will allow you to blow away the competition using the hellish Crowd Control attack. Should you prefer a more direct approach of action, you’ll also be able to squish your foes using the ruthless War Wheel alternate special.

You can learn more about Axel's abilities over at the Twisted Metal University.
