Criterion Making New Downloadable Burnout Game


Well, it’s not your usual Burnout game.

At EA’s Summer Showcase today, Criterion announced a new downloadable Burnout title for PSN and Xbox Live called Burnout Crash (which we had heard about before). As you might expect based on that title, it’s all about crashing your car into other cars and stuff. Unlike other Burnout games, though, Burnout Crash is a topdown racer.

Here’s how the games creative director, Richard Franke, describes it:

Burnout CRASH! is a crazy mix of pinball and game shows. We’ve evolved the core gameplay which everyone loved about Crash Mode, and expanded the whole experience using music, style and Autolog to create what we feel is the most mindless fun you can have on any gaming platform.

Whoa, I’ve been writing the title wrong this whole time. It’s not “Burnout Crash” — it’s Burnout CRASH! Sheesh. So much enthusiasm in that title.

BURNOUT MOTHERF–KING CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!! will be out this fall sometime.
