Following last week’s news, which confirms that Destruction AllStars would be a PlayStation Plus title available in 2021 to subscribers, this week we finally learn what the game plays like!
Jumping right in, the first mode George Rule, the Communit Manager at Lucid Games introduced is called Mayhem. In Mayhem, you’ll see it’s essentially classic deathmatch playable in both scrolo (their words) and teams. You’ll “deal damage and wreck as many opponents as you can in the time limit.” The idea is to get the highest score and you can control the chaos by finding the right balance between being in your vehicle and character action.
We learned about Carnado, which is playable solo and with a team. The idea centres around risk and reward to earn Gears (AllStars’ collectable in-game items) by wrecking enemies. You’ll have to sacrifice your vehicle by driving straight into the Carnado to earn points, and on foot, steal cars or get a new vehicle.
Stockpile is Destruction AllStars take on capture and control. It is a team-based mode where you’ll wreck and knock out opponents, causing them to lose Gears. You then need to get out and on-foot gather the Gears and run through a gauntlet at located at three points around the map. This is a battle for bank ownership; the team with the most banks at the end of the game wins.
Gridfall starts with 16 players and you’ll need to stay alive in order to win as only one will emerge as the victor. You’ll wreck enemies and knock them off the edge of the map while trying to stay alive. As players get wrecked or knocked out, they’ll trade a respawn to get back in the game. If you run out of respawns, you’re eliminated! The winner is the last AllStar standing.
Destruction AllStars also includes a Training mode and Challenge Series. The Challenge Series unlocks exclusive Character and Player Cosmetics.
