God of War creator David Jaffe is returning to Twisted Metal, as you'll well know, when the game releases later this year, and to celebrate, developer Eat Sleep Play has released a new extended trailer today, re-introducing the motley crew of insane competitors in the game's twisted universe.

Fans of Twisted Metal will also be happy to learn that Axel will be making a return, albeit as a pre-order exclusive from participating retailers. You'll remember him as the bloke stuck between two gigantic wheels. Now, that's a way to roll in style.

Check out a screenshot of Axel below and watch the new extended Twisted Metal trailer. Twisted Metal is scheduled to release on October 4th, 2011.

Why is Sweettooth in between the wheels rather than Axel?

Anyway, this game will be awesome just like all the other games in the franchise. Can't wait.

and it is in the hands of the best developer. No one better than Jaffe.

it aint out til October so theres plenty of time to polish the games graphics before then so relax people. and just to clear something up you can play as any character in any vehicle you aint just restricted to 1. looking forward to this cant wait. something different.

is it just me or is everyone forgetting what happens in this game?
sweet tooth doll face and the other characters are heads of guilds now and they train normal people ( us players ) to go and fight along side them to take over the world
its an interesting direction but ill wait n see if it works

everyone is forgetting, as they probably just played the game for lol's and not storyline.

If any of you goons who are hating on this, you clearly haven't read any reviews or watched any other trailers, cus then you would know that you play as clown and dolls, not individual characters, that's why sweettooth, or a clown, is driving axel. SO STOP COMPLAINING YOU LITTLE GIRLS. GO HATE SOMEWHERE ELSE.

@27 aren't you a hater for hating on haters?????? Guess you're going to go somewhere else now?

that's why that whole shit is so stupid, if you don't like something you should be allowed to say so as long as you aren't tearing someone else down for liking it.

i dunno im ify on this. i liked pretty much all of the TM's (specifically small brawl and #4) but this one looks kinda dumb. i mean from what ive seen theres no individual characters like the previous ones. and people aren't in it for the wish's. also that doesn't look anything like Axel... just a sweet tooth look a like in some giant wheels. im pretty sure most TM fans could pick that out though....

I guess ppl don't follow up with tm too much...yes there's individual characters but the online modes r a bit diff. The one mode they are showing is clowns vs dolls deathmatch..the singleplayer storylines r still there.
