Hey everyone, AllStars Destruction is finally here on PS5, a full game available at no additional cost to PlayStation Plus members *, and we’re excited for players to be able to jump into the arena!
Before you get started, we wanted to give you some tips and tricks to help you start your AllStar career! While the game is easy to pick up and play, the destruction runs deep and our AllStars are far more capable than they appear.
1. Vehicles are disposable
In Destruction AllStars, you had better not become too attached to one vehicle. During a match, you’ll want to research the best time to kick yourself out and look for a new race. Mix things up and change your strategy on the fly. Grab one of the heavy vehicles to do some serious damage or get behind the wheel of one of the smaller, more agile cars to dodge or deal precision hits! Even your hero vehicle is ultimately disposable as you may have the chance to summon it multiple times during a match. Do not exceed your welcome at the wheel.
2. Use the arena to your advantage
On foot, you’ll want to be aware of your surroundings when planning your next move. Our arenas have a lot of verticality with suspended platforms that provide temporary security against enemy vehicles. Staying light on your feet as you run between platforms is crucial in finding a brand new car or preparing to pounce on one of your enemy vehicles.
3. Use mics to reverse the trend
As you explore our arenas, you will find a variety of pickups that can help you recharge your circuit breakers (capacities). Collecting shards from platforms and walls will charge your vehicle and breaker hero. Use them to get a head start right from the start of the game or complete that final charge to get your breakers ready for action! You can also collect Breaker pickups. Collecting five of these vans will fully charge your team’s hero vehicles, preparing them to be called up. This allows you to coordinate devastating attacks or come back from an early loss.
4. Dodging is more effective than jumping
When an enemy vehicle is heading towards you, dodging (default circle) can be more rewarding than just jumping. If you successfully dodge, you will have the option to jump on their car and try to take or destroy their vehicle! You can use it to secure a new ride as quickly as possible or to get a wreck.
5. Team games are designed for coordination
In Stockpile and Carnado, coordination and communication will separate the winners from the real champions. In Stockpile, defending your banks is just as important as collecting gear. Pick the right AllStar to hang on with their Hero Breaker and push your opponents out of the banks. In Carnado, hero vehicles can store more gears than regular vehicles. Keep an eye out for your opponent’s hero vehicles and give them plenty of room. Pick your moment to strike to deny them a lucrative deposit for their team!
6. Convenient mode
If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed with some of the tips above, you can visit Practice Mode to try out all 16 of our AllStars in the single player environment of our Practice Mode. In this mode, you can learn the rules of our four multiplayer game modes while familiarizing yourself with the unique abilities of each AllStar. Practice moving around the arena and trying new tactics until you feel ready to take on the world in our online multiplayer.
7. Set of challenges
Our Challenge Series is a way to learn a bit more about a character’s story while participating in unique single-player challenges against their rival. Each event has multiple challenges to complete beyond just winning the match, giving you more reasons to replay a series of challenges to unlock all of its rewards. The first pack you can collect is the Ultimo Challenge Streak! Be sure to bring your game along as you take on his rival, Jian, who culminates in a final showdown!
That’s it for now, but hopefully this will get you started! When we launch, we’ll be monitoring community discussions closely and engaging with all of you to ensure player feedback is incorporated into all updates as we grow Destruction AllStars through content drops, seasons, events and more!
Thank you very much for your support and see you in the arena!
