The video game landscape has been missing the chaotic and senseless destruction that we all love from Twisted Metal for a long time. Fortunately, it looks like that might be changing and we might finally see a new game from the classic franchise soon.
According to a new report from VGC, Sony has reportedly signed on to develop a new Twisted Metal reboot for PlayStation 5. This would be the first game in the franchise to be released since the 2012 reboot for PlayStation 3.
This time around, UK-based Lucid Games is reportedly working on the Twisted Metal reboot. The studio is known previously for the development of Destruction AllStars, a vehicular battle game of a similar vein. Destruction AllStars received unsatisfactory reviews, with many saying the game lacked depth.
The new title will supposedly ship with a free model, which will somehow mimic Lucid’s decision to originally release Destruction AllStars as a free game for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Gamers have been wanting a new Twisted Metal game for a while now, and I really hope this reboot doesn’t disappoint. Lucid Games has likely learned from its mistakes in Destruction AllStars, and Twisted Metal already has a long history that the company can use for inspiration.
With today’s gameplay and graphics, there’s a lot of potential for a really good Twisted Metal reboot, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
