We’re now just over two weeks away from the launch of the PS5 on November 12th. At this point in time you would expect that launch lineups are largely set in stone, with games likely being gold and already printed. That hasn’t stopped Sony from announcing the delay of one of their launch games, Destruction Allstars nearly at the last minute.
Now releasing in February 2021, Destruction Allstars is a multiplayer vehicular combat arena game. It’s the sort of game that we’ve grown used to being cheap or free to play with Rocket League, so the $124.95 AUD price tag took many by surprise. While no details were given as to why the game is being delayed, what was confirmed is that the game will now make its debut on PlayStation Plus. Available on the service for two months after launch, subscribers to the service will be able to download the game for free. This ensures the game will have a good sized audience at launch, while hype and interest seemed pretty low across the internet while the game was pegged as a full retail purchase.
Destruction Allstars will release in February 2021 exclusive for PS5, with no specific date given as yet.
