If you're pumped for the return of Twisted Metal on October 4, you'll want all the available information at your fingertips.
Therefore, visit Game Informer for a feature that tells you everything you need to know about Eat Sleep Play's long-awaited production. Most importantly, the article details some of the vehicles and weapons for the game; it features both returning favorites and new stuff. Here are the known vehicles so far:
Meat Wagon – Ambulance that launches a TNT-strapped patient on a gurney. One firing mode fires him like a missile, while another allows you to remote-control the terrified patient into your enemies.
Vermin – This exterminator van features an animatronic missile-mounted rat on top. As you might expect, this rat rocket can be fired and directed towards enemies.
Motorcycle – Mr. Grimm’s favorite mode of transportation will grant its driver a throwable chainsaw. If simply throwing chainsaws at people is too vanilla for you, you can pop a wheelie and drag the blade across the ground, setting the weapon on fire.
Junkyard Dog – Tow truck that launches taxis at foes.
Roadboat – Old sedan that comes equipped with a giant magnet. This can pull in enemy cars, allowing you to ram them into walls or launch them anywhere you choose (even into other enemies).
Juggernaut – Semi truck. Allies can hop into the trailer and control mounted turrets.
Death Warrant – Muscle car with vulcan turrets. These can be charged to fire a series of swarm missiles.
Axel – Two giant tires with the driver strapped in the middle. This vehicle debuted in Twisted Metal 2.
Talon – Helicopter equipped with miniguns.
I sorta miss Warthog, Shadow, Thumper, and Outlaw 2 but I'll get over it. Also, remember that your character won't automatically dictate your vehicle in the multiplayer portion. As for weapons, the arsenal will be large and effective; fans of the series will undoubtedly notice a few of their favorites from the past:
I remember a lot of those from Twisted Metal Black on the PS2; personally, I'd always run around with a big stock of Homing Missiles, a few Power Missiles, and an RC Detonator if things got nasty. This game will be super gigantic fun; just can't wait to give it a try.
