There’s Another PS3 Car Combat Game on the Way Not Called Twisted Metal

WoD1

Twisted Metal is the preeminent force in video game car combat, and the next installment is all geared up to bring its psychotic brand of virtual vehicular manslaughter to the PlayStation 3 next week. But did you know that there’s another car combat game coming to the PS3?

Well, there is. Indie developer Gelid Games is hard at work on its first game release, Wheels of Destruction: World Tour, an arcade-style car combat shooter set to blast its way onto Sony’s console as a PSN exclusive digital download. No date yet, but it’s “coming soon.”

Wheels of Destruction, powered by the Unreal Engine, takes place in a post-apocalyptic Earth setting, with the game’s five maps built around different regions of Europe. Players will be able to hop behind the wheel of five unique car classes, bumping fenders, swapping paint and obliterating anything with an engine in online competitions of Capture the Flag and Deathmatch.

Gelid Games’ timing isn’t exactly ideal with this one, but if Twisted Metal doesn’t rev your engine or is out of your price range, Wheels of Destruction may be an indie alternative to watch for. Follow the game’s Facebook page for all the latest updates.
