This in-depth dive, which you watch below, will provide you with everything you need to know to jump into the arena on Tuesday, February 2, when the game launches on PlayStation Plus alongside Control: Ultimate Edition and Concrete Genie.
Let’s take a closer look at the games …
AllStars Destruction (PS5)
Entertain the crowds as you bring controlled mayhem to the vehicular combat arena in this metal-edged multiplayer game *. Choose from one of 16 superstar contestants, then switch to four game modes, using timing, tactics and skills to cause a drive-through carnage or wreak havoc with your parkour skills. Perfect your character’s abilities – including a hero vehicle unique to them – to give you the edge in free team battles or challenges and become a World Federation of Destruction champion. The game also supports the PS5 game assist feature **, which gives you tips and tricks to become the ultimate destruction machine without having to leave the game.
Control: Ultimate Edition (PS5 and PS4)
Master supernatural abilities and wield a shape-shifting handgun in this third-person action-adventure from Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne, Alan Wake). Play as Jesse Faden, director of the Federal Bureau of Control, whose New York headquarters are violated by a disturbing enemy. Despite the exterior appearances, the interior of the skyscraper is vast and ever-changing. You’ll need to explore – and arm – this unpredictable environment to clean up the house and repel the invaders.
The Ultimate Edition includes the base game as well as The Foundation and AWE expansions.
And on the PS5 console, use the console’s play assist feature ** for tips and walkthroughs to help you solve puzzles and overcome challenges as you explore the oldest house.
Concrete Genie (PS4)
Pick up a magic brush and take the polluted town of Denska back to its bright and bustling former seaside town in this touching, award-winning action adventure. Clean up the streets and alleys, then use your living paint to create mischievous geniuses whose magical powers will help you overcome puzzles and fend off the bullies who pursue you. The game also includes two additional modes specially designed for PS VR to allow you to further unleash your creativity ***.
Destruction AllStars is available on PlayStation Plus until Monday, April 5. Control: Ultimate Edition and Concrete Genie are available until Monday March 1.
