Multiplayer title Destruction AllStars has been pushed back to next year, when it will be free on PS Plus for two months.
Just weeks before release, the PlayStation 5’s line-up of first party titles has suddenly got a little shorter, as Destruction AllStars is delayed until next year.
While no specific reason for the delay was given, the PlayStation Blog writes that it will now launch in February 2021.
However, the game will also be added to the PlayStation Plus service for two months, meaning PS Plus users can own it for free.
That’s a particularly significant offer given the game has a RRP of £69.99, a rather optimistic price given the title’s low profile so far.
The blog post adds that all pre-orders will be refunded and that a new trailer and details will be shared next week.
The delay could be very beneficial for the game, as it being both a multiplayer title and a new IP already makes it a hard sell, not helped by that hefty price tag.
Sony may also be hoping for a Fall Guys style effect, where that game was free for a month on PS Plus and became a major hit as a result.
That reduces the PlayStation 5’s first party exclusive list to two at launch, namely the Demon’s Souls remake and Astro’s Playroom, which comes pre-installed on the console.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure are also launch titles but will be releasing on the PlayStation 4 as well, though the former’s Ultimate Edition, which includes a remaster of the original game, will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive.
Destruction All-Stars will release in February 2021 exclusively for PlayStation 5.
