57w ago - Senior Producer Zach Wood has announced today that Axel will be available to all tomorrow alongside the Starhawk Sweet Tooth Skin as part of the incoming Twisted Metal PS3 update.
To quote: We're pleased to confirm that Axel will be available to all Twisted Metal players with the upcoming free patch on April 18th.
If you missed him through early pre-order access, this will be your chance to deal some serious destruction in new ways. Bothered by some unrelenting enemies? Blow them away with Axel's signature Crowd Control attack, or run them right over with his ruthless War Wheel alternate special attack.
You can learn more about Axel gameplay strategies (along with strategies for all vehicles) in the Twisted Metal University series at TwistedMetal.com.
After studying up on your vehicle of choice, take it for a spin in online multiplayer where we've tirelessly been working on updates driven by user feedback. Give it a try and keep the feedback coming!
Finally, you've seen pictures from our initial January announcement that Sweet Tooth would be making an appearance in Starhawk, but you've never seen him in action...until today. Check out Sweet Tooth's Outcast form in this new video:
69w ago - Twisted Metal Producer Chad Cox has officially confirmed today that Twisted Metal has gone gold, and it comes with a Starhawk Sweet Tooth Skin as well!
To quote: Hey everyone, I'm back with some great news- Twisted Metal's gone gold in North America!
We - the crew over at Eat Sleep Play and Sony Santa Monica - have been working so hard for the past few years and it's tough to express just how happy we are to be one enormous step closer to putting Twisted Metal in your hands this coming Valentine's Day. We put a lot of love into this game and can't wait for you all to play it and let us know what you think.
But the good news doesn't stop there. Our friends over at LightBox Interactive have been cooking up something really amazing, and I'm excited to show it to you all today- the Sweet Tooth Outcast Multiplayer skin for Starhawk, coming May 8th! Every copy of Twisted Metal will include a voucher for this awesome skin.
On top of that, if you pre-order Twisted Metal you'll get early access to Axel and a free upgrade to the Limited Edition that comes with a code to download Twisted Metal: Black.
We'll be sharing even more news up through Twisted Metal's February 14th launch, so be on the lookout! Until then, let us know - what about Twisted Metal...
