Wheels of Destruction doesn’t hide its influences well. A glance at a screenshot can easily draw comparisons to the more popular Twisted Metal games which could be enough for potential buyers to dismiss the game entirely. While that’s not a good reason to completely ignore the game, Wheels of Destruction doesn’t exactly make you think otherwise. Read the rest of this entry »

After the introduction of the Scout, Heavy, Assassin, and Soldier classes, Gelid Games has unveiled the final style of vehicle playable in Wheels of Destruction. The Engineer relies heavily on the power of knowledge, which is displayed through an advanced sonar device that easily shoots from a distance. While other classes focus on brute force and speed, the Engineer uses technology to get a lock on a target before anyone else can even get a shot off. With the best handling available, the final class in this downloadable car combat title is both unique and deadly. Look for all five of the dynamic classes when Wheels of Destruction releases on PSN April 3.
Ever since the initial announcement of Gelid Games’ Wheels of Destruction, we’ve been slowly fed information, one class at a time, about this carnage-filled driving title. News about Assassins and Scouts has been tickling our taste buds, but thankfully, the big piece of information is here. Wheels of Destruction now has a release date of April 3.
This date falls right into Sony’s Spring Fever promotion, joining other highly anticipated titles budding like spring tulips. The base price will be $9.99, but if you’re happily subscribed to PlayStation Plus, a $2 discount will make this purchase even easier than it already is. Shine your rims to a sparkle, fill the tank, and check out Wheels of Destruction in Sony’s latest PSN bonanza next week.
Wheels of Destruction, being developed by Gelid Games, is shooting to be more then just your run of the mill battle car arena game. Seeming to take more of a FPS-in-car feel with modes to match, they have created distinct classes built for different and distinct uses. In this update we get to meet ‘The Soldier’, an all around kind of vehicle, built to handle any situation substantially. The Soldier is just one of four classes in Wheels of Destruction - the others being Assassin, Heavy and Scout. You can pick up this high paced battler starting next week Tuesday, March 27, 2012 for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network.

Not long after revealing its Heavy class for Wheels of Destruction, Gelid Games is back to drop another tidbit of information for this class-based, car combat extravaganza. Say hello to the silent but deadly Assassin class.
We here at PSN Fans love news: release dates, gameplay trailers, hardware details… You name it. However we can’t always report on everything that trickles out of the news machine, which is where Weekly News Catch-Up comes in. Here we cover some of the stories that didn’t make it to the front page the first time around.

Gelid Games’ Wheels of Destruction, a class-based car combat game coming soon to PSN, has a new goodie to share with the public. The Heavy class has just been introduced, and with it comes a thick layer of armor that will help plow right through your enemies. While size and defense both matter, this specific class also comes with a deadly rocket launcher and a blazingly effective flamethrower. Its stats help make it a beefy and effective choice, but with the ability to change your class on the fly, swapping to a more speedy and deadly vehicle is quick and simple. More vehicles will be announced in the near future, as a class “that sets itself apart with exclusive tactical functionality” has already been teased. Stay tuned.

Wheels of Destruction is definitely trying to pit themselves as an affordable alternative to Twisted Metal. This move that they’re running with is very tricky, and they know that in order for it to work they can’t be ‘just another bad clone’. In this new trailer, Gelio Games shows off Wheels of Destruction’s strong graphics, fierce gameplay and possibly what might just make this game stand out in an almost forgotten genre: the vehicle classes.
This first of what looks to be five classes is the scout, who is all about speed and evasive action. It also seems like it has very tight handling even at high-speeds, but it also has the ability to ‘jump’, adding a whole new element to car gameplay. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for what could be this year’s first big surprise hit.
