Jump back into the arena Destruction AllStars first post-launch season today

Hey everyone, today’s the day – Season One Hotshots is now live in Destruction AllStars, exclusively on PS5! The team at Lucid are thrilled for you all to start getting your hands on what we’ve been working on these past few months and there’s still more to come. You’ll be seeing loads of new content making its way into the game over the coming months as part of Season One. We’ve got a brand new launch trailer to celebrate along with a road map detailing all the cool new stuff coming your way through the season.

Jump back into the arena Destruction AllStars first post-launch season today

Let’s dive into what’s new today. Our brand new AllStar, Alba, is now available for Destruction AllStars players. This veteran of the competition has returned to whip the AllStars into shape and she’s well equipped for the challenge with her high-tech battle suit. We gave an overview of her character ability and Hero Vehicle in our last blog post if you fancy doing some homework, or you can dive right into the game and get to grips with our latest AllStar.

Arriving alongside Alba is her Story Mode (formerly known as Challenge Series). Learn more about what motivates Alba as an AllStar and unlock exclusive cosmetic rewards as you compete in seven gameplay challenges. Some of these challenges are exclusive game modes that aren’t available in online multiplayer and can really test your skills in new ways. In an unexpected twist, Alba is facing off against all of the other AllStars. Be sure to complete the additional star challenges to unlock all the rewards.

Also arriving today is the AllStar Pass. This is a brand new way to earn cosmetic rewards in Destruction AllStars through online multiplayer*, no matter how you choose to play. Be sure to check out the new daily and weekly seasonal and sponsor challenges to give your AllStar Pass a boost.

Whilst today is bringing a lot to the arena, the fun doesn’t stop here. Photo Mode will be arriving very soon on May 19, offering you news ways to get up close and personal with the mayhem and destruction! Take it for a spin in single-player activities and look for that perfect angle on a wreck, evade or pose. 

After that, our brand new game mode Blitz will arrive on June 2. This game mode is all about team based coordination as four teams of three AllStars face off in the arena  in intense round based car combat! AllStar lockouts will be in place meaning that you can’t play the same AllStar twice and your ability energy will carry over between rounds. All of this makes for a tactical environment where your team’s choice of AllStar really matters and can mean the difference between clutching a win or a devastating defeat.

Alongside these brand new features, you can expect new Story Modes to be released throughout Season One. As well as Alba’s Story Mode which is available right now, we’ll be learning more about Ratu, Boxtop and Angelo Avello, alongside their Rivals. Each Story Mode comes with exclusive cosmetic rewards which can be earned through single player gameplay challenges. Check out the roadmap above for details on when each Story Mode will be releasing.

As well as all of the content we’ve outlined above, we’ll also be introducing some brand new featured playlists to Destruction AllStars. We don’t want to pull back the curtain entirely just yet, but we’ll leave you with a thought: What if you could play Carnado and Mayhem on a Gridfall map…? 

Season One Hotshots starts today and there’s plenty more to look forward to on the horizon! If you’re diving into Destruction AllStars today, be sure to swing by the official Destruction AllStars Twitter account and say hello. We can’t wait to hear what you think of Alba and all the other fantastic additions coming to the game this season.
