“Burnout Crash” was brought up in the news about a month ago about possibly being the next game in the series but now it seems that it may be more of a downloadable game than a massive game like Burnout Paradise, here’s what the ESRB has to say about it:
“This is an action game in which players earn points for creating traffic pileups. From a top-down perspective, players initiate crashes by driving ‘cartoony’ vehicles (e.g., cars, trucks, vans, buses) into busy intersections; multiple crashes trigger score multipliers and rack up large ‘bills’ of property damage. Each level is accompanied by crashing sounds, small explosions, and vocal encouragement (e.g., ‘Cool,’ ‘Maximum Carnage!’). In some levels, players are instructed to crash into police cars (e.g., ‘Crash them before they bust you!’); in other sequences, oversized airplanes, tornados, lobster monsters, and UFOs slide across the screen, destroying any vehicles in their path.”
Definitely doesn’t sound like the full-fledged burnout game I’ve every played, which leads me to believe that it is most likely a PSN/XBL game instead of a game to be released on a physical disc. Nothing has been announced by EA or Criterion about the game yet but expect an announcement soon.
