Sweet Tooth is the only vehicle that can transform.

As stated by David Jaffe.

Just to be clear: not all vehicles transform and fly in the new Twisted Metal. Just Sweet Tooth.

So it's only happening in the single-player, correct?

I think Sweet Tooth can transform in Multiplayer as well... I'll try and ask Jaffe that on twitter to see if he can confirm

That's my concern, though -- that it's going to unbalance things.

Man, the 360 looks so stale recently compared to the PS3. TM is awesome. Spent so much time playing splitscreen with my brother many years ago. This game looks pretty sweet and very innovative for the TM franchise. Nice to see it back again, although I enjoyed Vigilante 8 more.

Just in case anyone was thinking of looking for the music used in the video it's called Give Me Everything You've Got by Blue Stahli..

And I love the game even more just because they used a Blue Stahli song. :woot:

Here's the song in full:

BTW, this is personally, one of his weaker songs. He's got much better stuff hidden away if you're thinking of checking him out. Listen to "ULTRAnumb", "Anti You", and "Corner". :)

How would it unbalance things?

There's helicopters in multiplayer.

How would it not unbalance things?

I'm aware there's helicopters. But is there a helicopter that transforms into a tank? People won't play as the other vehicles/drivers if Sweet Tooth is as powerful as normal and can transform. Because then the player has a nice little escape route whenever things get hairy.

You really need to watch the videos on multiplayer. I posted a 3 video topic recently in this section with Jaffe briefing journos behind closed doors. Every single vehicle has an array of special moves and cons/pluses. It looks anything but unbalanced.

I've already seen those videos, but I'm unaware of how that changes the issue I'm commenting on. It already seemed hard to concentrate on the helicopter in the previously released videos, given that pretty much everyone else is on the ground, so yes, I'm concerned about the balance of having a character who has traditionally been one of the more powerful in the games also having the ability to transform into a vehicle that may allow him to get away from enemies trying to concentrate on him.

To you, it looks anything but unbalanced. To me, it looks like there's the potential for an issue. That's all I'm saying.

I'm definitely not trying to say that. Only that with the amount of detail that's been put into primary/secondary/extra moves and the focus on people needing to work as a team to get anywhere in multiplayer, along with all the game modes (each having pros/cons for certain vehicles), there doesn't seem much concern for universal balancing issues specifically for this vehicle. Or any for that matter, IMO.

There will be no doubt balancing tweaks, but I don't think in the nature of Twister Metal there's going to be "one size fits all" vehicles/characters, unlike say, COD perks where there is definitely certain perks that get flooded with players.

You simply won't win a MP game with 10 helicopters, etc :p

Basic Information

- The premise is much different then previous Twisted Metal games. The game itself is mainly multiplayer-focused, including both and new modes. The single player will feature three different campaigns with four of the classic drivers featured in live-action movies: Sweet Tooth, Preacher, Mr. Grimm, and Dollface.

- The game features 16 selectable vehicles

- The game features 4 player split-screen offline, 16 players online (2 player split-screen online)

- The game will run under 60 FPS

- The game will support 1080p

- No getting OUT of vehicles

- Large levels with big draw distances. World is interactive and destructible. More levels where the environment destruction changes the map completely, such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

- DLC will become available sometime during 2011

- Online gameplay MAY include a leveling system and/or perks (unconfirmed)

Single Player

- The game will include a single player mode that has three different campaigns. Each campaign will have three difficulty settings, and each difficulty results in a different ending. After each win, the player is rewarded with a live action movie. There are nine end movies in total, and they tell the story of four characters: Sweet Tooth, Preacher, Mr Grimm, and Dollface.

- Calypso is still a "Watch what you wish for type guy", but is NOT TMB's version of Calypso. Calypso has hair and is colorful like TM2.

- The single player (story mode) game will not feature gunners, only one-person vehicles

- The driver stories will still be "dark and twisted"

- "This new 1p will be more varied than ANY TM 1p in the past. We are not abandoning 1p." - Jaffe

Multiplayer (Offline)

- Split screen offline is available with up to 4 players (Deathmatch only)

- Co-op is available in TWO PLAYER split screen

- Rumored to have Challenge Modes and Endurance Modes, but unconfirmed

Multiplayer (Online)

- The main portion of the game relies on this aspect. This is the first TM store release to feature online play as the helm of the series, instead of stories. The newest portion of the online game is Twisted Metal: NUKE, the new team game designed around Team Deathmatch meets Capture the Flag

- Other modes include Team DM and Free For All

- Scoring based on Kills, Net Kills, Carnage, or Net Carnage

- Nuke mode pins two teams/factions against each other. The object of the game is to kidnap the opponents team leader and bring him back to your base so you can launch a missile to destroy the opposing team's leader statue. Whomever destroys the other faction's statue first wins the game. The team leader is an NPC

- NUKE mode has Four different "gangs", the Clowns led by Sweet Tooth, the Dolls led by Dollface, the Skulls led by Mr. Grimm, and the Holy Men, led by Preacher.

- In NUKE, you can switch vehicles while re-spawning or suicide to change cars on the fly

- At any particular time in NUKE mode, only one player per team can be Talon for balance purposes

- AI traffic in the online games to block weapons and cause mayhem

- Will support either 2 player split screen online

I would buy a PS3 for this game and a few other games I've been wanting. I'd even get a PS3 just for this game, I've been a huge Twisted Metal fan since the PS2 days.
