There’s just over a month left before the smash-tastic PlayStation 5 exclusive Destruction AllStars leaves PlayStation Plus on 6th April and developer Lucid Games has now announced how much the game will cost once it’s no longer available as a bundled in freebie. Come April, Destruction AllStars will cost $19.99 / €19.99 for anyone that didn’t snag it for free.
That’s a huge difference to the $70 that it was originally going to cost when the game was announced as a PlayStation 5 launch title, and shows how much more important it is for a multiplayer game such as this to be able to find and maintain its audience. Lucid said the new price point would help to “ensure the mayhem will continue long after our PlayStation Plus promotion comes to an end.”
The new price point announcement comes alongside a look at the game’s future content and updates. There will be a free new game mode – Mayhem 8v8 – appearing in the “featured playlist”, as well as new skins making their way into the game over the coming weeks and months. Additional Challenger Series will also be coming, each one adding missions to the game designed to flesh out the game’s background lore. You can read all about that here.
In our Destruction AllStars review at launch, we scored the PS5 exclusive a decent 6 out of 10. Here’s what we had to say:
The car combat genre has long been out of fashion and still has a way to go if it wants to take us back to its glory days of the 1990s. Destruction AllStars is a mostly satisfying modernisation that has some neat ideas and looks fantastic, though ultimately spins its tyres on repetitive rival-wrecking gameplay and a lack of truly worthwhile content at launch.
