Destruction AllStars is an action-packed sports event that pits drivers against one another in an intense competition.

Dominate the glittering global phenomenon of Destruction AllStars – the spectacular prime-time sport for dangerous drivers!

The goal? Wreck as many cars as possible.

Master the art of intense vehicle-based combat through timing, tactics and skills to cause colossal amounts of damage, destruction and devastation in vibrant arenas across the globe.

Off the back of the recent announcement that Destruction AllStars is available on PlayStation Plus for Extra and Premium/Deluxe members as part of the new Game Catalog benefit, Lucid Games are announcing the next exciting new seasonal content for the game!

On June 22, they’ll be releasing a host of new content for Destruction AllStars to coincide with Europe’s launch of the new PlayStation Plus service in the same week. We kick off with a new event called Rise, which includes a brand-new game mode, new challenges and an exciting new AllStar Pass.

The new PlayStation Plus service recently launched in Asia, North and South America and it’ll be coming to Europe and Australia on June 23, just in time to dive straight into Rise with the rest of the community.

If this is your first time playing Destruction AllStars, or if you’re coming back after some time away, Destruction AllStars is the global spectacle where stars and cars collide! Carnage and destruction is guaranteed as AllStars compete on foot and behind the wheel in front of a crowd of millions, battling it out to see who will come out on top as the champion! The brand-new trailer has all the information you need to know as well as a sneak peek at what’s coming with our first event, Rise, so be sure to check it out.

Let’s start off with the brand-new seasonal content in Destruction AllStars and how the next patch is changing things up.

Events are brand new to Destruction AllStars and they last for six weeks, they also come packed with content with rapid delivery. Events will always launch with a new game mode or playlist along with a brand new AllStar Pass. These passes contain a bunch of cosmetic content and currency rewards for you to deck out your AllStars and get them looking their best for their moment in the spotlight. Events will also contain rotating challenges that can be completed for a variety of rewards including currency, XP and brand new cosmetics.

Get ready to lift the curtain on the first three events you can expect over the coming months: Rise, Unite and Survive, with a more detailed look at our first event arriving June 22.

Rise will be launching alongside the launch of the new PlayStation Plus service in Europe this June. This event will also play host to our first community challenge where the entire community can work together towards a shared goal, unlocking exclusive cosmetic rewards for the whole community to enjoy. You’ll find all this and more in our latest trailer, so be sure to give it a watch.

The first event is also adding a brand-new game mode called Jumpshot to Destruction AllStars. It’s a team-based game mode that requires you to think fast on your feet and behind the wheel as you score points with the help of your team. Check out the trailer for your first look at this brand-new mode.

In the upcoming patch, Lucid Games are not just adding loads of new content but they’re giving some of our existing game modes a bit of an upgrade.

Let’s look at Blitz, the competitive game mode, where we’re introducing competitive seasons for the first time! Within the competitive system, the devs have revamped the ranking system to better track your skill level and match you up with opponents of similar skill. They’ve also added brand new and prestigious cosmetic rewards which you can earn exclusively from the Blitz playlist, letting all the other AllStars know just who came out of a competitive season as a reigning champion! Blitz is available on weekends in Destruction AllStars and each competitive season lasts for six weeks, it’s all about making a lasting impression in a short amount of time if you want to get the crowd on your side.

As Destruction AllStars gets ready to welcome in a bunch of new players and to commemorate the game joining the Game Catalog library in PlayStation Plus, the team at Lucid wanted to make sure we rewarded players who have been supporting the game since our launch last year. Everyone who has played the game before the launch of the new PlayStation Plus service will receive a founders pack as our way of saying thank you. You’ll be able to claim this reward for free from the in-game store and it’s got some exclusive cosmetics to help you show off your skills and experience.

All of this and more will be arriving on top of the huge patch we already released in January earlier this year. The January patch was an absolute monster for the game, the developers really dived into a lot of the core systems like collisions, networking, slam and points scoring to really tighten up the gameplay experience. Not only that, but they also enhanced the look and feel of the game too, with a brand-new main menu experience along with awesome new VFX to compliment all of your actions in the arena, such as evading, slamming, double jumping and much more!
