Today Twisted Metal producer Chad Cox announced via the PlayStation Blog that Eat Sleep Play’s upcoming racing/shooter hybrid has gone to press. Launching in mid-February, Twisted Metal marks the return of the PlayStation’s first flagship franchise with an array of insane game modes, modded vehicles and their unpredictable driver.
Cox also revealed that every new copy of the game will include a code for exclusive Starhawk content, a Sweet Tooth-inspired player skin to be used in multiplayer combat.
It won’t have everyone reaching for their wallets, but Sony is definitely pushing for cross-promotion, and more importantly, first hands sales. New copies of Twisted Metal will also come bundled with a coupon for Twisted Metal: Black, sources suggesting that despite Jaffe’s open claims, the game will require a one-use code to enable online play.
