Today, Sony announced that Destruction AllStars, a game originally set to launch with the PlayStation 5, is no longer coming out next month. Delays are going to continue to happen with the ongoing pandemic seemingly not going anywhere just yet, so add this to the pile.
We got our first look at Destruction AllStars back in June, which was when we got our first look at the PlayStation 5 via the Future of Gaming Showcase. Since then we’ve only seen bits and pieces of what the game is and I’m still wondering what the game is about. Thankfully, Pete Smith, the Director of Product Development spoke about the game on the PlayStation Blog.
Smith confirmed this is a multiplayer game and because of that, you’ll need players to compete against from all over the world. “We want as many people as possible to experience the mayhem on PS5, and what better way to do that than to provide the game to our PlayStation Plus members?”
Sony is now offering the game to PlayStation Plus subscribers for two months for free starting in February 2021 and the idea is to allow as many people to play together and to allow the user base to grow on PlayStation 5.
I think this is a great idea and one that will surely pay off for what the game is meant to be. Expect a brand-new trailer next week and more information about the game, “so you’ll know exactly what to expect when you download it in February.”
