Sony has announced the Destruction AllStars roadmap, as well as a massive price cut to the car-combat hero multiplayer game less than a month into its life.
What does the Destruction AllStars roadmap look like?
First up Sony described what the ongoing content for Destruction AllStars will look like, with them taking community feedback into account. To meet what the community is enjoying, they are announcing the addition of a Mayhem 8v8 featured playlist starting in March.
Let's take a look at March, which starts next week. It will feature Mayhem 8v8 as a playable featured playlist as mentioned alongside Stockpile 4v4. There will be multiple Bonus XP weekends for players looking to level up, along with 10 new cosmetic skins. There will also be the addition of the Bluefang Challenge Series, which is a single-player game mode based around the AllStars and their Rivals with unique modes of play. Right now, you can grab the Ultimo Barricado's Challenge Series at no cost. The Challenge Series will generally cost 400 Destruction Points and feature unique cosmetics.
April is being kept a bit closer to the chest by Sony but it will have Double XP weekends as well. One featured list they are saying will be there will be Carnado Solo. Beyond that, in April we'll have to wait and see.
Destruction Points Will be Earnable In-Game
One quiet change that was announced was the introduction of a premium currency, Destruction Points, that will be available soon. Destruction Points can be used to buy cosmetics, that are also available for AllStar Coins (which are earned solely through play) as well as buying Challenge Series, generally costing 400 a pop for those, with Lupita's available for a lower 200 points right now. What in-game activities will be able to earn you Destruction Points are unknown at this time.
What is the new Destruction AllStars Price?
The biggest announcement of the day though is that the price for Destruction AllStars is being massively slashed when it becomes digitally available for purchase starting April 6th. At that time the PlayStation Plus claimable period for the game will come to an end, and previously it was set to become a $70 full-priced next-gen game. Now, however, Destruction AllStars will cost $20 to buy starting in April if you didn't claim it when it was available as part of a PS Plus subscription. This is quite the change in release roadmap from a game that was originally planned to be a PlayStation 5 launch title.
