They need to make something amazing to turn this game around. Dunno what, but they need something.

ID: heq8w7s

It just isn't going to happen unfortunately. The very core of this game is fundamentally flawed.

In a game about car "destruction", destruction is actually the least fun aspect of the game. No matter how you twist it, it will always go back to that central point.

Maybe I just sucked at it but I spent all my time just trying to make contact with another damn car

Racing mode.

ID: hepxyb8

Burnout style racing mods is the way to go

ID: her1wmf

They'd need to add guns

ID: heq4i2g

It's a little too late for that.

Comebacks can be a thing for certain games, but usually that starts to happen with the next big overhaul update for that game. A very expensive update, in the works for a long time. It also happens with games that still sold well and could sell lots more (NMS) or had a large enough following that they would jump aboard once the problems are fixed (FFXIV).

Thing is... neither were true for DAS. It released as a wet cabbage, which has only rotted in the months since then.

It's done. Sony will do the bare minimum (a year of small updates, if the studio is lucky) before taking the game out back and shooting it.

At this point, it's a better use of money to try and make the next game a hit.

Just go F2P, I got a ps5 a little bit ago, I sure as hell won't buy this game

ID: her3fhs

The game was free. Millions of people downloaded it.

It still died and flopped because even free, its not worth wasting time on

Game has been dead practically since launch. No one is coming back. Flop of the year?

4 : Anonymous2021/09/29 12:47 ID: hepsnt7

Is there bots now?

5 : Anonymous2021/09/29 16:26 ID: heqmt3e

I played it once and it was SO BORING. I can't believe how a death match arena with cars to blow up was made boring. I played two matches and even my five year old asked me to play something else. I never went back.

Game was poo

ID: heqvvmo

That's being generous.

Boring but potentially smart solutions: - racing mode like others have mentioned - weapons on the cars Twisted Metal style

Pathetic (entertaining) crossovers events I’d be there for - PlayStation themed levels and weapons (bow and arrow + goo bombs + jungle level = horizon, shot guns + bricks + apocalypse Seattle = Last of Us) (think recent astrobot but less respectful to the franchises)

They destroyed the game once they removed voicechat

9 : Anonymous2021/09/29 11:09 ID: hepj0gj

You know what could’ve saved this game potentially? 4 player split screen

ID: hepjhi2

Or make a racing mode.

ID: hepkjs1

It should have just been a destruction racer akin to Burnout back in the day. Could have been absolutely great.

ID: hepug6p

I think it requires more than that. For one, the story mode part should be included as they can be quite fun. And then change pretty much everything else. Like have you played wreckfest on ps5? It's drastically better even when not playing the racing mode.

ID: hepjm06

Even 2

ID: hepz4ga

Do enough people care about split screen to have actually saved this disaster?

ID: heql844

Anecdotal, but lack of split screen is why I personally lost interest

10 : Anonymous2021/09/29 16:49 ID: heqq9lm

I'd honestly rather have Twisted Metal.

11 : Anonymous2021/09/29 11:38 ID: heplkya

The desync in this game was atrocious on NA servers then they decided to kill the NA servers to make us play on EU servers... Well yea... Let it die.

ID: heqed2f

We can only join eu servers now? I played the game for about 4 hours total and deleted it within the first week.

ID: heqt0i1

Yes the last big patch there was this summer due to the lack of players they closed the NA servers. No clue if anything as changed since then but im doubtful, i don't see this game doing good unless some major change or it going F2P.

Dude I completely forgot about this game. It's a shame cause I was excited for it. Reminded me a lot of twisted metal.

ID: heqa8id


ID: herf6w4

just make another Twisted Metal, hasn't been a good one since TM Black on PS2

Fixed - Bots on Las Vegas Crash Bowl may get temporarily stuck in the Carnado after banking. (Carnado too strong, plz nerf)


Fixed - Multiplayer - In rare instances, all players in the lobby crashed on transition from Character Select.


Additional voice lines added in Story Modes. Story Mode - The delivery point debris will be visually floating above the ground. *Multiplayer - Fixed - Players are being placed into teams in the Live game in 16 player solo modes


Shop - Catalogues are not appearing in the defined order Multiplayer - Fixed - One or more users might be removed from the matchmaking queue.


Shop - Missing Items - Missing Daily Discounts and Story Mode after game settings update.


Character Select - Selecting a character at the last second causes the UI to be on screen during the rest of the match. Practice - Info prompt mentions double jump before mentioning an on foot breaker.


Boxtop - the glow produced by Boxtop's Breaker parcels lingers for too long after they've been destroyed.

There is zero they can do at this point to get me to play jt.

ID: hepq53t

It came with my ps5 and it's still wrapped up

ID: heprrbf

Got it with plus downloaded it but never had the urge to play it.

15 : Anonymous2021/09/29 16:34 ID: heqo3bn

Any Aussies play this? Is it populated? Is it worth downloading.

I would guess not, online games die real fast here.

ID: hervjmh

This game died the day it came out

16 : Anonymous2021/09/29 15:22 ID: heqd9kp

Just let it die. Move resources on to something else.

17 : Anonymous2021/09/29 11:52 ID: hepmwnr

Inevitable server shutdown coming in 3…2…

18 : Anonymous2021/09/29 11:54 ID: hepn53q

How hard is the platinum?

ID: her3m7q

Impossible because they removed modes required for it.

ID: hes6aru

So soon after release. Wow.

19 : Anonymous2021/09/29 15:37 ID: heqffgb

Time to shut down the servers for half a year, rebrand it as twisted metal and give it guns and go go go!

20 : Anonymous2021/09/29 12:44 ID: hepsbxl

I forgot this exists lol

21 : Anonymous2021/09/29 20:09 ID: herjocq

The game needed weapons and slighty smaller arenas. Also some of the characters are unbalanced as fuck. As some have abilities that can take out other cars while others have useless abilities like going invisible
