PS5-exclusive Destruction Allstars will be getting various new features and Quality of Service updates, including the addition of online bots that will help with low times of player activity for online matchmaking.
Developer Lucid Games shared the update on Reddit, and while there are no definite dates as of yet, the team wanted to be transparent with what it was planning for Destruction AllStars.
Lucid Games explained that “with a community the size of Destruction AllStars, spread across the world we do have peak times and low times of player activity for online matchmaking.” To ensure matches are filled to capacity at all times, AI bots will take the remaining spaces if real players can’t be found. This will apply to all modes except Blitz, which is a competitive mode that will always consist of only real players.
In addition to Bots, Destruction AllStars will also be getting Global Parties to let players party up with friends and queue into both Solo and Team modes, a Playlist Feature to allow for only your favorite game modes to be selected, and many Quality of Service improvements.
Slams are being looked at, as players have reported that it sometimes feels like you aren’t slamming anything. Ghost hits are also something the team is actively working on alongside balancing the gameplay and adjusting how powerful or weak some of the characters’ abilities appear to be against others.
Destruction AllStars was released in February 2021 on PlayStation Plus and, in our review, we said that it “can provide fun bursts of frantic car combat action, but never adds up to much more than that. “
Destruction AllStars is no longer on PlayStation Plus and currently costs $20 USD, a $50 drop compared to its original price point of $70 USD.
