Fact sheet:


OVERVIEW
Twisted Metal®, the longest running franchise in PlayStation® history and the multi-million selling series is now back, exclusively on the PS3TM 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.

STORYLINE

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.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: If I seem annoyed it's because the greater Xbox Fanboybase has eaten up the DX12 hype wholesale with little to no information. It's the new secret sauce. The new stacked die. Etc. (3 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And really.. isn't that where this matters most? (4 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Which sorta indicates that multiplatform titles will be the last to catch up in terms of image quality, if ever. (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX So will Sony's. So did the Xbox 360 SDK. So does everything. (6 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think a 1080p requires 48mb of bandwidth to process. But xbones esram is only 32mb. Hence why we're seeing crappy res and performance across the board. Something like that. (6 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: They haven't given enough technical details on what DX12 on Xbox even is for anyone to hype it. Including developers. No one has a DX12 SDK for Xbox One. Will the SDK improve? YES. (6 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: as long as it's forward rendered xbone shouldn't have issues with res or framerate. Sadly for MS is that most engines are deferred renderers. (7 minutes ago)
