Destruction AllStars, a vehicular combat game originally slated to launch alongside the PS5 on November 12th, has been delayed to February 2021. To make up for the delay, PlayStation Plus subscribers will have the chance to download Destruction AllStars for free for a period of two months after its release.
“Destruction AllStars is a multiplayer game that’s at its best when you’re competing with gamers online from all around the world,” Sony said. “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?”
The game was already available for preorder for $70 ahead of release, but Sony confirmed in a recent blog post that if you preordered the game on the PlayStation Store, the PlayStation direct website, or through a retailer, you will be refunded.
Destruction AllStars was one of two games launching exclusively on the PS5 and the only new intellectual property coming exclusively to the console; other major titles coming to Sony’s next-gen hardware include Spider-Man: Miles Morales by Insomniac Games and Demon’s Souls remake developed by Bluepoint Games also available at launch. The delay means new PS5 owners will have one less exclusive to play at launch.
