For years one of the Sony PlayStation’s flagship titles has been Twisted Metal. Aside from the insane gameplay, the black heart of the title has always been its demented lead character, Sweet Tooth, whom gamers/horror fans everywhere have embraced the same way that they would big screen favorites like Jason or Freddy.
Now there’s a new chapter on its way, and as you’re about to see from the trailer … things are looking appropriately crazed.
Twisted Metal, available exclusively from Sony and director David Jaffe, will be released onto the world on October 4th, 2011. Mark your calendars. Warm up your fingers. Let the games begin.
Dread Central was recently on hand at Sony’s San Diego Studios for a first-hand look at the making of the game and the filming of some of the most brutal footage you’re likely to see from the franchise. Look for full coverage soon.
Twisted Metal®, the longest running franchise in PlayStation® history and the multi-million selling series is now back, exclusively on the PS3™ system. David Jaffe and Scott Campbell, co-founders of Eat Sleep Play and the original creative team behind Twisted Metal, bring back the dark humor, fast-action gameplay and a world of cars, guns and destruction.
With four factions battling for control, players step into the combat boots of a twisted disciple in a high octane, highly destructible world. Players fight for the prize of one wish fulfilled by the stylishly evil Calypso, the mastermind behind the Twisted Metal tournament. Disciples strategically dismantle opponents in vehicles loaded with weapons of Twisted destruction.
With a robust online system, players unleash destruction with up to 16 players through PlayStation®Network (“PSN”) and battle through a variety of favorite and new game modes.
Twisted Metal carved out its own unique gaming genre. No other title has Twisted Metal’s perfect mix of dark humor and personality along with massive destruction in a distinctive atmosphere and vehicles and weapons that act as extensions of each character.
High atop his penthouse office, a mysterious ringleader named Calypso lords over the contest of vehicle combat known as Twisted Metal. He returns again to host the ultimate contest of skill and destruction. Contestants have been chosen to compete and, should they emerge victorious, win whatever prize their heart desires.
