Instruments of Destruction version 1.0 launching out of Steam Early Access on May 10th

Wednesday, April 3, 2024 - Break thru walls, tear down buildings, and send structures crashing into each other in Instruments of Destruction, Radiangames' new vehicle-action game featuring advanced physics-based destruction.  Created by the lead technical designer of Red Faction Guerrilla, Instruments of Destruction gives players a variety of unique vehicles and fun objectives to overcome while engaging with a highly-interactive and destructible world.

"Instruments of Destruction's key feature may be the physics-based destruction system, but the huge lineup of vehicles and missions are just as important to unlocking the full potential of the immersive and satisfying gameplay," says Luke Schneider, creator of Instruments of Destruction. "The missions and environments provide a framework for fun objectives, while the systems-driven gameplay provides an intuitive way to interact with a simulated world."

Instruments of Destruction launched into Early Access in March of 2022, and has a 94% positive review rating on Steam and over 20 million views across hundreds of videos on YouTube.  The game has had over 100 updates in Early Access, and the Steam Workshop is overflowing with amazing vehicles from thousands of vehicle builders.  Version 1.0 is coming to Steam on May 10th, 2024, and will be launching at a discounted price of $16.99 (15% off the regular $19.99).

Version 1.0 features the addition of a massive campaign where each mission has its own custom vehicle.  From everyday wreckers and flying bulldozers to ornithopters and spider tanks, Instruments of Destruction features one of the most unique and varied lineups of vehicles ever assembled.

While the 50-mission campaign takes you on a thrilling journey as a test pilot for Sharpe Industries, it's just the tip of the iceberg for players who truly want to engage with the vehicles, physics, and destruction.  Each mission also hosts  a high-score challenge where players use a different vehicle to test their limits.  The missions and challenges combine for dozens of hours of destructive carnage.

If over a hundred playable vehicles isn't enough, players can take on a secondary campaign where they are challenged to build a custom vehicle from scratch.  With an instructional campaign and more cerebral missions and objectives, the 25-mission Build & Destroy campaign allows players to take the reins of the powerful vehicle build system, but is completely optional.  Finally, Sandbox mode offers players a chance to load up any of the nearly 100 maps--and any unlocked or custom vehicles--and play with no objectives or restrictions.
About Instruments of Destruction
Instruments of Destruction is a vehicle-action game with an advanced physics-driven destruction system and has been in development for over 4-years.  It launched into Early Access on Steam March 2nd, 2022, and version 1.0 is releasing on Steam on May 10th, 2024.  A console version is coming later in 2024.
