I agree with the majority re the art style. It looks too much like Fortnite and is off putting to me.
That being said I love the idea of a multiplayer focused car combat game and the brief glimpses of gameplay did look like the game could be incredibly fun!
The development team are also made up of people that worked on some of my favourite racing game series previously - PGR, Motorstorm and Wipeout! That gives me a lot of hope that they will nail the gameplay.
I'm cautiously optimistic and really want to see more. As this is a new IP they should show off some extended gameplay soon so that people have a better idea how it plays - hopefully it's far along in development and coming out soon as I think this could make a cool launch game.
Finally, I do wish this was just a new Twisted Metal game but as a 90s kid in his mid 30s I appreciate that the metal style aesthetic and soundtrack probably wouldn't appeal to the kids of today and would likely be extremely off putting to them. It's a shame but they do need to be able to market this game to that generation of younger gamers as well if it's to be successful.
That retrospective its awesome. Part 2 where they talk about why Twisted Metal Black is such a great game is very well made. Op should watch that if he thinks Twisted Metal can´t be brought back. They just need to copy what the did with black.
Oh god totally forgot about Bleeding Edge already. Yeah that's something that came and went didn't it? Let's hope this meets a more kind fate.
I'm surprised GAF is somewhat negative/lukewarm on this as it basically looks like a modernization of Twisted Metal with some Rocket League stylings sprinkled on top. Could very well be loads of fun, especially on launch to try out on our shiny new consoles.
I was hyped for a new Destruction Derby, then I saw all the gimmicks and hamming it up that has me currently wary of how this game will turn out. What was wrong with the "real" old school version of just pure derby, the music would kick in to that circular arena of metal carnage and you just plowed into reverse against all those incoming AI vehicles. I found myself just wanting that version of the game but online, not this jacked up trailer of weirdness. It's like the reality shows of today, the whole thing is turned into characters and editor narratives and loses sight of the actual content e.g. in this case that classic arena of death to the end of one car standing victorious.
