We’ve been watching the excitement around Destruction AllStars building since the game was announced, along with a good number of questions about the game itself. Today, we want to pull back the curtain to show you what the team at Lucid have been working on, coming exclusively to PS5 at launch this November.
Destruction AllStars is a global sports entertainment event where stars & cars collide. Become one of 16 different AllStars and get behind the wheel to the sound of a roaring crowd as you wreck your way to the top. Can you master the mayhem?
Jump into the arena solo or with your teammates and run to your vehicle of choice. There’s a variety of different vehicles with unique speed and handling characteristics. Whilst you might have a particular favourite, it takes a true AllStar to master them all!
While behind the wheel, you’ll want to react to the match as it unfolds around you. Driving into opponents’ vehicles will do plenty of damage, but a well timed slam will annihilate them. Master using slam attacks to wreck, dodge and boost your way through the competition.
When wrecked, you’ll have to master a whole new set of skills as you’re thrust into the action from a different perspective. On foot, our AllStars might look vulnerable, but they have the athletic and heroic skills to evade opponents, take their vehicle and cause maximum damage.The arenas have been designed to harness mobility and destructive action. Vehicles have enough track to navigate at maximum speed, whilst AllStars on-foot can seek temporary safety in suspended platforms above. Using their parkour skills to jump, climb, grab and vault, they can collect items and lure opponents into hard hitting traps.
All of this takes place in the first minute of every game. If you compete hard, be fierce and stay in the action, you’ll be rewarded with an AllStar’s ultimate skills: their character ability and hero vehicle. An AllStar’s character ability gives them an edge above the competition, whilst their hero vehicle can really shake up the game.
Shyft – Uses cloaking technology to go invisible and take over vehicles before his opponents notice.
Ultimo Barricado – Become invulnerable to incoming attacks, from vehicles and characters.
Lupita – Drops trails of fire that causes burning damage to vehicle and KO characters.
Boxtop – Spawns parcels that buff team mates and deal explosive damage enemies.

We’ll tell you more about this bunch of diverse, charismatic, and heroic AllStars in a future Blog post.
