Destruction AllStars gameplay trailer, game modes detailed

Mayhem, Carnado, Stockpile, and Gridfall.

Destruction AllStars

Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developers Lucid Games and Wushu Studios have released a gameplay trailer for Destruction AllStars, as well as detailed the competitive multiplayer title’s four game modes available at launch.

Get the details below, via Lucid Games community manager George Rule on the PlayStation Blog.

■ Game Modes at Launch


Mayhem plays like a classic deathmatch. Playable in scrolo and teams, deal damage and wreck as many opponents as you can in the time limit. The player with the highest score wins. It sounds familiar, but can you control the chaos by mastering the balance between vehicle and character action.

Destruction AllStars


Take what you learn in Mayhem and put it all on the line in Carnado. Playable in both solo and teams, it’s focused around risk and reward. Earn Gears (AllStars’ collectable in-game items) for damaging or wrecking competitors, which are automatically stored in your vehicle. Sacrifice your vehicle by driving into the Carnado to score points. Back on-foot, get a new vehicle or steal one from your opponents for a quick points boost. The more you wreck, the more Gears you earn.

Destruction AllStars


Stockpile is our take on capture and control. In this team based mode, wrecking or knocking out opponents will cause Gears to drop to the floor. Go on foot to collect the Gears and run through a gauntlet of vehicles to one of the three banks around the map. Stand on a bank to deposit Gears, and claim it for your team. This is a battle for bank ownership; the team with the most banks at the end of the game wins.

Destruction AllStars


16 AllStars enter the arena, but only one will emerge victorious. In Gridfall, it’s about using all your skills to stay in the game as the arena falls away from beneath your wheels. Wreck your opponents off the edge of the map or find temporary safety in the platforms above. As players get wrecked or knocked out, they’ll trade a respawn to get back in the game. If you run out of respawns, you’re eliminated! The winner is the last AllStar standing.
