From a bad news came a much better one. Today, Sony was forced to announce the launch of Destructions All-Stars. The Battle Racer would be a PS5 launch game, but Lucid Games needs more time to refine it and get it on the shelves in a decent way.
Fortunately, Sony has largely been forgiven by revealing it Destruction All-Stars is free for all PlayStation Plus subscribers for two months after release, for now fixed in a generic February 2021. Anyone who has already pre-ordered it for the purpose of taking it with PlayStation 5 will receive a refund. We can therefore say that we are facing first PS5 game announced for PlayStation Plus! Not a bad record.
At the moment, we do not know if Destruction All-Stars will also be the first PlayStation 5 game ever to enter the Instant Game Collection, or if it will be preceded by others. Of course, we know that all premium service subscribers will have access from the launch of the PS5 to the PlayStation Plus Collection, a collection of wells 18 games from the PS4 era fully usable on the next generation console thanks to backward compatibility. Among the many we mention Persona 5, The Last of Us Remastered, Bloodborne, Days Gone and Resident Evil 7.
