'Twisted Metal' (PS3) Gets New Release Date, Valentine's Day

by Rainier on Aug. 25, 2011 @ 9:48 a.m. PDT

With four factions battling for control, players step into the combat boots of a twisted disciple in a high octane, highly destructible world. Players fight for the prize of one wish fulfilled by the stylishly evil Calypso, the mastermind behind the Twisted Metal tournament.

High atop his penthouse office, a mysterious ringleader named Calypso lords over the contest of vehicle combat known as Twisted Metal. He returns again to host the ultimate contest of skill and destruction. Contestants have been chosen to compete and, should they emerge victorious, win whatever prize their heart desires.

Originally scheduled for release on October 4th, 2011, Eat Sleep Play recently revealed it would need more time to polish and tweak the game, pushing it back until 2012. Today David Jaffe, co-founder of Eat Sleep Play revealed that the game has a new specific release date, February 14, 2012, Valentine's Day.
