As Destruction AllStars rolls out to PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium subscribers as part of the service's re-launch, Lucid Games is looking to capitalise on its new potential player base with more modes and events. Starting on 22nd June 2022 (the day before the service finishes its rollout phase in Europe), a new Rise event will go live containing a new game mode, challenges, and AllStar Pass.
Events are brand new to Destruction AllStars, and three are planned so far. Each lasts six weeks and will always include either a new game mode or playlist along with another AllStar Pass to work through. For example, the new mode launching alongside the Rise event is called Jumpshot. "It’s a team-based game mode that requires you to think fast on your feet and behind the wheel as you score points with the help of your team," said marketing lead George Rule on the PlayStation Blog.
Two further events will follow in the coming months: Unite on 10th August 2022 and Survive on 28th September 2022. If you played the game before its inclusion in PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium — don't forget Destruction AllStars was part of the old PS Plus at launch — then you'll be treated to a Founders Pack for free. This contains some exclusive cosmetics.
Destruction AllStars has been on an upwards trajectory since its big January overhaul, with the game finally feeling good to play. Now part of PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium, perhaps it'll start to grow a devoted player base. Are you going to give the game a chance? Fill up the fuel tank in the comments below.
Reeling me back in like... 🎣
Looks good, enjoyed it to begin with but then got bored with it. Also wanted to ask, with the new ps plus being out in other countries. Are there ps plus premium top up cards to buy? The reason I’m asking is my plus ran out in April & I’ve held off buying it, waiting to see if we can buy it as a form of top up card. Never been keen on putting my card details on the PlayStation. I’m from the uk by the way-havnt seen any news of it.
If this game had proper track based racing like destruction derby 1 and 2 i'd be all over this..as it stands wreckfest is far superior..
They should have added more trophies. Not sure why more devs don't do this to entice trophy hunters who already have all the trophies a nice incentive to come back.
Flogging, dead and horse spring to mind
If only they'd make the single player stories free. Then I'd give the game a try.
Oh cool, seems to have had a few changes since I last played, I just got bored playing online without friends.
Just rework it into a 3D arena smash brothers with cars wtih Playstation characters.
@Hundred_Hand_Slap in agreement about dlc trophies but not with this game at all. Getting the plat for this game was horrid. The trophies for Ratu and Fuego were the stuff of nightmares.
All right. I'll play this again.
Looks great, decent game to play in short spurts. Excited to jump back in!
@Hundred_Hand_Slap Thought this for a while myself, too. It's always odd to me how games built around player retention don't add more Trophies over time.
@Lfc1105 Yeah those 2 trophies were a bitch but it was also kind of fun to get those ones while yucking it up with a boosting group.
@get2sammyb seems like it would be worth the development time and money just to get some old players back to beef up their player count even if it would be for a limited time engagement.
I liked the game but, to me, there wasn't a compelling reason to keep grinding. None of the cosmetics were particularly good, plus they cost a fortune, and there weren't many options. I might look into it again because I had fun with a few friends that played it.
I like it but it needs more players. The Demon Souls remake is taking up all my time i love it. 😁👍
Hopefully they’ll get the servers filled.
That’s the only reason I quit playing after the last night update. The first few weeks were strong. But then it started taking 8 to 12 minutes to find a match.
I ain’t got that kind of patience.
Got an email about the 'new' ps plus today & this bit made me laugh:
Enjoy games from the original PlayStation, PS2 and PSP generations – select titles available to both stream*** and download – including:
Borderlands The Handsome Collection
Since when did the last one launch on any of those consoles lol
