The duo of genre-defining demolition map-driving titles from the original PlayStation will be available to download and play for an individual cost alongside the subscription service.
The first vehicular combat title was released in 1995 and saw a series of characters – including Needles Kane aka Sweet Tooth – take part in events (organised by Calypso) with weaponised cars, the aim to be the last one standing.
It was created and published by Sony, with David Jaffe one of the game’s designers – he’d later go on to work on the original God of War series alongside hidden PlayStation 3 gem Calling All Cars!
The sequel launched a year later in 1996, entitled Twisted Metal 2 in the USA, but Twisted Metal World Tour in Europe. Both of those names remain for these re-releases, which include up-rendering, rewind, quick save and custom video filters.
They will hit the PlayStation Plus Premium service on 18th July 2023 alongside SnowRunner, or will be available to purchase for £7.99/$9.99 each. The Twisted Metal TV featuring Anthony Mackie, Stephanie Beatriz, Thomas Haden Church and Will Arnett begins on 27th July via Peacock in the United States.
