E3 Beta version

The game's E3 beta contained some elements that weren't in the final version: a BMW M3, a US Postal vehicle, a different design for Mr. Grimm and a stage set in San Francisco which features SCEA's HQ at the time


Twisted Metal 3's soundtrack consisted almost entirely of music by Rob Zombie and Pitchshifter. Rob Zombie had the song Superbeast in the L.A. stage, a remixed Christmas style version of More Human Than Human in the winter stage, and the song Meet The Creeper for the final stage. Pitchshifter had Microwaved for Washington DC, W.Y.S.I.W.Y.G. in Hangar 18, and Innit in Tokyo.
