We got to check out Eat Sleep Play's new vehicular combat game Twisted Metal during Sony's E3 Sneak Peak Week. The original Twisted Metal game was released over 15 years ago and the rebirth of the series seems pretty gnarly. Our own Kevin Kelly got to test out the multiplayer:
"The game mode that really impressed me was the revamped Nuke. Nuke is set up like baseball, according to Jaffe, and is played in innings. Previously, both teams were trying to score shots on their enemy's giant statues with nuclear missiles in an effort to bring them down. You fire a missile by capturing faction leaders and sacrificing them at a launcher to fire a missile, which you then steer towards its final target. Jaffe and crew have tweaked this mode so you're only on offense or defense, not both. Now you'll be either trying to protect your faction leaders, or capture them, while trying to shoot down missiles, or make sure the enemies don't shoot down your own."
Find out everything you get to destroy and a little more info on new vehicles like the Juggernaut and the Axel in Kevin's full multiplayer hands-on preview.
Twisted Metal is coming out exclusively for the Playstation 3 on October 4.
