Axel is a pretty striking figure in the Twisted Metal universe. He’s actually been trapped inside his vehicle for twenty years or so – and, until today, his adventures were restricted to gamers who had pre-ordered the game. Now though, a new patch is on the way, setting Axel free from April 18th.
…that is, free for all Twisted Metal players, not actually free of his wheels.

If you haven’t had a chance to try him out, Axel brings some pretty impressive destruction to Twisted Metal – including his Spiked War Wheel special attack, which sees both wheels combine into one, complete with protruding spikes. Just the thing, when you’re being hassled by people you’d rather just left you alone.
