Zach Wood, Senior Producer of PlayStation’s Twisted Metal series, has revealed that Axel is now available to every player of the demolition derby-based game with today’s free patch.
The two-wheeled bringer of destruction was formerly a pre-order bonus back on Valentine’s Day. Now all fans can roll out a new approach to damage with Axel’s unique methods of attack. Guilty bystanders can be kept at a distance with his signature Crowd Control, or utilize his aptly named alternate special attack, War Wheel, on unsuspecting enemies.

Sony Pictures are reportedly negotiating a “7-figure deal” with Ghost Rider co-director Brian Taylor to write and direct a big screen adaptation of the Twisted Metal series. Taylor is no stranger to high-octane action having worked on both Crank movies, 2009’s Gamer and the recent adaptation of Jonah Hex. Marvel producers Avi and Ari Arad are also reported to be involved in the project. The pair are apparently working on an Uncharted movie too, so another Sony tie-in wouldn’t be all that surprising.
