Gelid Games’ Wheels of Destruction shaping up to be a very nice looking car combat title. Now the PSN exclusive has a release date and a sale price that’ll make Plussers smile.
Starting April 3rd, you’ll be able to blow up your friends’ futuristic rides for $9.99 USD- but if you’re of the elite ‘I like to pay for my online services’ PS Plus crowd, you’ll be getting a nice bonus in the form of a 20% discount off that tag.
So what does $9.99/$7.99 net you?
Wheels of Destruction pits players in an arena of demolish-or-be-demolished competition. Five distinct classes make for deadly cutthroat vehicle combat with a unique futuristic aesthetic – all powered by the Unreal Engine. Wheels of Destruction brings gamers together just to tear them apart in an addictive, easy-to-learn but hard-to-master battle behind the wheel. Just make sure you’re ready for chaos and carnage!
One of the coolest things about WoD is that the devs treated it almost like it was an FPS. It’s definitely a car combat title, but it’s very different from stuff like Twisted Metal in that it’s got classes (like Team Fortress) and modes of play like capture the flag. Sounds like cool stuff. We’ll find out how cool next Wednesday.
