Destruction AllStars Update 2.3.0 adds New Features on July 28

Sony Interactive and Lucid Games today released new features for Destruction AllStars. There is also a new update to match. Below is the list of all new content and adjustments from July 28th.

The Destruction AllStars Update 2.3.0 can now be downloaded and installed. As already mentioned, there are some new features, as well as changes and bug fixes.

 

Destruction AllStars Patch Notes 02.003.000 / 2.3.0

New Features:

  • Multiplayer parties in Solo game modes



    • Players will now be able to join solo game modes together in a party, up to 4 per party and battle it out against each other.

  • AllStar Pass Tiers

    • We’re adding 3 additional premium tiers to our AllStar Pass.

      • Tier 1 – 25,000 AllStar Coins

      • Tier 2 – 500 Destruction Points

      • Tier 3 – Xander Wall Scrawl Skin

  • Shop Re-Design

    • We’ve moved the location of the in-game shop, it will now appear on the main menu. Everything about the shop has been redesigned showing off the in-game cosmetics to make it easier to see what you’re looking for.

  • New Skins

    • New skins for your favourite AllStars will be getting released over the next few weeks, keep an eye out for them on the new store and when we announce them on social media.

  • Quickplay Playlist Added

    • We wanted to create a new way of queuing for different game modes without limiting the actual amount of game modes available for selection. The QuickPlay game tile option will be trialled with the launch of patch 2.3.0 and will include the following game modes: Mayhem Solo & Carnado Solo

Quickplay will be available 7 days a week, alongside Blitz which will be active Friday – Monday. These are subject to change and additional modes will be added when necessary.

  • Ghost Hits & Networking

    • Fixed: We’ve made a lot of tweaks and changes to our back-end systems which manage how hits register between players and how the overall networking is managed inside Destruction AllStars.

We’re now at a point where we are happy with how this plays out in the game and have found the experience to be far more smoother and enjoyable in testing.

As always please keep us updated on your feedback and experience in-game regarding this.

  • No longer need to create a party

    • A party is now automatically created at the main menu meaning you can begin inviting people immediately instead of needing to create the party beforehand.
