The arcade car game Destruction All-Stars has been pushed out of its prior PlayStation 5 launch day release. Rather than November, the first-party Sony game will now release in February 2021. But on the bright side, the announcement also gave word that it will be a free game for PlayStation Plus members.

A post on the PlayStation Blog from product development director Pete Smith emphasizes how important it is to throw down in a destruction derby with plenty of other players, so it will be available for two months for PlayStation Plus members, starting at the game's launch. That should get plenty of people aboard so you can knock them around. The announcement suggests it will be available to claim for two months, after which you would probably be able to keep it with your Plus subscription.

If you've already preordered the game, you'll get a refund. The blog also promises a new trailer and details coming next week, to further sate your appetite for the February release.

"This may be disappointing news for some of you who were looking to play the game at launch, but we hope you understand the decision," Smith says. The blog does not outline a specific reason for the delay.

Destruction All-Stars debuted with the PlayStation 5 reveal event in June, looking something like Rocket League meets Twisted Metal. You'll take to your armored up cars and try to smack the others around, and once your car takes too much damage you can get out on-foot and try to stay in the game by continuing to wreak havoc.

The PlayStation 5 launches on November 12, so check out our PS5 preorder guide for tips on how to snag one.
