High up in his penthouse office, a mysterious lunatic holds the infamous Twisted Metal tournament every year. Who is he? Calypso. And his thirst for chaos and destruction can only be quenched with death.
Contestants for Calypso’s Twisted Metal tournament are selected from all over the world to compete for the ultimate prize: Survival. Behind the wheel of the most twisted vehicles imaginable, contestants battle to the death until one, lone victor remains standing. The champion gets one wish granted by Calypso.
But there’s a twist.
This year, instead of offering the champion money, power or fame, rumor has it that Calypso is able to offer more…so much more. However, as contestants step up to prove themselves worthy of the Twisted Metal championship, a mysterious figure is tracking Calypso and preparing to strike back — someone who knows the truth behind where and how Calypso is getting his amazing prizes.
Game modes and weapons -
In Death Match, time is not on your side. The first player to score the set amount of points — or the player with the highest score — after a set amount of minutes is the winner of the round. Play for one minute or 90. The game host can set the number of rounds. The only end is death.
Last Man Standing :
In Last Man Standing, each player begins with a finite number of lives. As the battle rages, lives diminish until the last player left alive wins. The game host can set the number of rounds. In the end, only one can claim victory.
Team Last Man Standing: :
In Team Last Man Standing, two to four teams can battle to death. Each team begins a battle with a finite number of lives shared between its team members. The team left alive at the end of the battle is crowned the winner.
Hunted Team :
In Team Hunted, each team has a player tagged as "prey." However, all other team members are tagged as "hunters". The hunters must pursue their marked prey until he’s completely massacred.
Nuke is a twisted take on capture the flag. Capture the other team’s leader and drag him back to the missile launcher at your base. Then, by sacrificing the leader into the missile launcher, you can launch a missile directly into the enemy’s statue.
However, the enemy can shoot down the missile in the air. Destroy the enemy's statue, and your team wins.
