Server Closures: Warhawk, All-Stars Battle Royale, Twisted Metal, Drawn to Death

By Sam Quirke, 3 months ago
Unfortunately more PS3 and Vita titles are getting their servers shut down, which will have an effect on trophies. Warhawk, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (including its Vita version), Twisted Metal and Drawn to Death are getting the chop.

All of these closures have been found on the US PlayStation store — though the news hasn't hit store pages in other regions it seems likely that the server closure will affect everybody. Warhawk's closure is only appearing on the Warhawk bundle page but its description suggests servers are coming down for all versions of the game.

Warhawk, Twisted Metal and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will have their online connectivity switched off at the end of October 25th 2018 at midnight PST. In the case of Warhawk, this renders the game effectively unplayable unless you host a local LAN game as the entire experience is online — so the entire Warhawk Trophies list is affected.

PlayStation All-Stars has a handful of trophies that require online connectivity, so the Platinum will be unobtainable on both PS3 and Vita after closure:

A large section of the Twisted Metal Trophies will be impossible to obtain, so consider carefully if you haven't started it yet — especially since one trophy is reliant on getting to the top rank:

Drawn to Death's servers aren't closing until March 25th 2019. Once again, the entire game is online multiplayer based so the whole Drawn to Death Trophies list is affected.

Unfortunate news, but these things will always come to pass eventually. Will any of you be participating in a mad dash for completion on these titles?
