PlayStation server updates: PS All-Stars, Twisted Metal extended, Drawn to Death closure confirmed

There’s been a short reprieve on the deadline dates for some older PlayStation titles although it’s hard to pin down in exactly which regions. Right now we know for sure that online features for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Twisted Metal (2012) have been extended to January 31st, 2019 across Europe. In North America, the game’s pages still show October 25th as the cutoff but anyone still looking to play these titles should definitely give it a shot (and let us know if you do!).

Meanwhile, the multiplayer shooter, Drawn to Death, has had its extinction date set. The note on the Decommissioned Servers page from PlayStation Europe reads “multiplayer and all online features for this product will be terminated and no longer available from 25th March 2019.  As you have to be online to play this title, this game will no longer be playable as of the same date.”

The warning comes a little too late for players in North America and Asia as the game has already been removed from sale in those territories. It was once given away to PlayStation Plus subscribers so you may be able to find it in your history and keep playing but right now you can only purchase the game from the PlayStation Store in European territories.

One final note from the updated page regarding inFAMOUS Second Sun: “On 16th December 2018 at 00:01am GMT, the web-based puzzle portions of InFAMOUS Paper Trail will be shutting down. The InFAMOUS Paper Trail PlayStation 4 missions will continue to function within InFAMOUS Second Son, so you’ll still be able to complete Celia’s story.”

I’ll get the new dates added to the Watch List calendar and prep a page for Drawn to Death soon. Thanks to @LotsaNintendo on Twitter for pointing it out.
