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 mentioned that “it’s almost here.”
The big question on everyone’s mind of course; won’t we all still be playing Twisted Metal?
