Hardware: Rivals is fast paced arcade-style vehicular arena combat game for PS4 that’s comparable to Twisted Metal, but with more of a cartoony Mad Max vibe.
It’s a sequel to the lesser known PS2 title, Hardware: Arena Online and looks to offer some bombastic vehicle-based carnage as players charge around the arenas blasting anything that moves. There’s a wide range of rugged looking vehicles to try out, from beefy tanks to agile buggies, all with their own selection of high powered weaponry for blasting opponents.
The Beta can be downloaded from the Playstation Store now, but you may have to wait to get access to online play. The Beta is Open(ish) to all PS4 owners who have a PS+ subscription, but there is a waiting list, with players being granted access in batches (although players who are in the Beta can send out one ket to a friend). It’s an odd way of hosting a Beta, but it’s probably just so that the servers don’t get flooded and it breaks the game for everyone.
