Destruction AllStars

Destruction AllStars is a fast-paced action game in which we will drive through all kinds of arenas and get out of vehicles to smash our opponents. It's like Rocket League but without rules and with savagery and insanity as the selling point. A very interesting title among PS5 games at launch for lovers of multiplayer and arcade titles.

From the creators of Octodad comes this surreal adventure in which the bugs that roam the countryside are snacks and the inhabitants of the island take their form every time they eat them. One of those wacky scenarios with a lot of humor that can end up being the most touching.
