Destruction AllStars future updates will add online bots and global parties

Lucid Games has lifted the lid on some of the plans that it has for Destruction AllStars, with more features confirmed for the game. The first of these confirmed features are global parties where players can party up with friends to queue together for solo and team based modes. The second feature will be a playlist feature so players can get into preferred game modes much quicker. The third feature will be online bots. In matches where there are not enough human players bots will populate the game modes, except for Blitz mode which will not have bots as part of it.

There will also be changes to some of the gameplay, and Lucid Games has detailed those changes.

Slams

We’ve heard your feedback with slams, sometimes they just don’t feel like you slammed anything. We’re going back into our slam feature and seeing where we can make changes, improvements and over all tighten this up to make it feel more rewarding and responsive.

Ghost Hits

Ghost hits are something we’re more than aware of and working on reducing and mitigating as much as possible. We’re currently looking into further network improvements as well as how to make sure the servers Destruction AllStars is played on are more stable and responsive.

Balancing

Now out of the game release phase, we want to have more focus on balancing our AllStars to ensure they all bring something to your match. This is something we always want to hear from you on what you like, what you think could be improved to what you just don’t like at all. We can balance from data all day long but what really matters is what you, the community, thinks.

Abilities

Just like the balancing focus above, we also want to take a new look at how some characters’ abilities (on-foot and in vehicle) interact with other AllStars in the game. We’re not sure yet if these will be small tweaks or completely changing, but it is something that we’re investigating and working on.

In our review for Destruction AllStars, Jim wrote:

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.
