PSN-exclusive Wheels of Destruction announced

This week saw the US release of Twisted Metal, an entry into the near-dormant car combat genre. We thought it would be the last we heard from this type of game for a long time but here comes Wheels of Destruction to prove us wrong.

An Unreal Engine-powered PSN-exclusive, Destruction is developed by Gelid Games. Rather than asking players to pick a specific character, it takes the class-based multiplayer seen in so many other games and transfers it to an arcade car shooter experience. Scout class speedsters will outrun tank-like heavies, but they in turn pack considerably more firepower.

While no release date has been announced for this one, the developer has┬ámentioned┬áthat “it’s almost here.”

The big question on everyone’s mind of course; won’t we all still be playing Twisted Metal?
