Sony has announced that Destruction AllStars, a once-PS5 launch game has been delayed to 2021. This news no doubt took gamers by surprise as the game was set to launch in less than 2 weeks alongside the release of the PS5 console. However, Sony says the delay will help the game not only with extra development time but allow them to give the multiplayer title away to all PlayStation Plus subscribers in 2021 for free.
This means in February 2021, Destruction AllStars will be released as a free game to all PlayStation Plus subscribers on PS5. In addition, the game will live on the service for two months instead of a month. The PlayStation Blog states;
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#337CFF” class=”” size=”21″]Destruction AllStars is a multiplayer game that’s at its best when you’re competing with gamers online from all around the world. We want as many people as possible to experience the mayhem on PS5, and what better way to do that than to provide the game to our PlayStation Plus members?[/perfectpullquote]
The delay makes complete sense. Up to now we have not seen or heard much about the title. A few trailers here and there and a blog post detailing the DualSense support is not gameplay information. It sounds as if Destruction AllStars was not ready to release on PS5 in the first place. Now that the game is headed to PlayStation Plus, users will be able to experience it with a full collection of players similar to how Fall Guys raked in its player base thanks to the PS+ platform.
Sony claims they will share more news on the game soon including gameplay details and footage.
