Lucid Games have confirmed that Destruction AllStars Season 1, called Hotshots, will launch next week on 5th May. As part of the season, new content will be coming to the game, including free and premium versions of the AllStars Season Pass, featuring 100 reward tiers in total.
The game will be updated to include a new playable character, a new game mode, and lots of new content to unlock throughout the season. The brand new AllStar Pass is coming to Destruction AllStars, starting with Season One. The AllStar Pass is a way for players to earn cosmetics from online multiplayer, no matter how they choose to play the game.
The AllStar Pass will have 100 tiers to unlock, with some items available for all players alongside a premium tier that can be bought for 1000 Destruction Points.
New Character: Alba
The first new playable character, Alba, is also coming to the game. Alba is a veteran of Destruction AllStars who is returning to the competition after several years away from the event. Alba’s hero vehicle functions a little differently to the other vehicles in Destruction AllStars. Instead of a slam which pushes the vehicle in the chosen direction (forwards, left, or right), Claymore deploys a laser beam that sweeps and damages AllStars or vehicles in its area of effect.
New Mode: Blitz
Blitz is the new game mode being added to the game, and will arrive part way through Season 1 in early June. Blitz is an evolution of Mayhem between four teams of three AllStars. However, unlike a game of Mayhem, Blitz consists of short, intense, adrenaline fueled rounds. These rounds are all about being the first team to reach a set score to win the round. Win a set number of rounds wins the match.
To add more tactical decision making between the rounds, players will need to pick a new AllStar at the start of every round! Here’s where things start to get really tactical. In Blitz, your Character Ability and Hero Vehicle energy will carry over from the previous round.
