Destruction AllStars PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Destruction AllStars is a helluva lot better following its reboot earlier this week, and you can find out more about what’s improved in our hands on. The big battle for Lucid Games is now getting people to try it, and while many will have the title in their PlayStation 5 library following its PS Plus run last year, there’s a suggestion that it may go free-to-play.

Eagle-eyed Reddit users spotted during a period of server maintenance this week that the new-set of Welcome Challenges in the game – onboarding tasks which reward you with XP and in-game currency for completing some fairly simple starter tasks – were labelled in the source code as ‘F2P’, potentially signalling some kind of free-to-play re-release. It’d make sense, seeing as the title is clearly inspired by the likes of Fortnite and Apex Legends.

The game is due to get a new seasonal update at some point, and with the response being positive to its latest update, it’s now or never for the explosive combat racer. Titles like this live and die by their communities, and while the servers have been fairly populated this past week, we could see a free-to-play re-launch being quite successful at this point in the its lifecycle.
