Criterion Games, an Electronic Arts Inc., today announced “Burnout CRASH!” This new installment in the popular series comes to Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network this Fall. A press release says “Criterion Games has gone back to its roots with Burnout CRASH! by bringing the series’ fan-favorite Crash mode to the forefront, adding new top-down gameplay, exciting features and Autolog to let players compete with their friends while embracing their road rage.”
We say that’s a good thing, since “Burnout: Paradise” was a departure from the winning formula that turned some gamers off to the series.
In the game, players are rewarded for causing traffic chaos by crashing into cars, triggering explosions and destroying everything in sight. Powered by the company’s Autolog technology, players will be able to connect, compete and compare high scores to earn the master of disaster crown, as well as use the all new Autolog Challenges feature to go head to head with their friends.
“Burnout CRASH! is a crazy mix of pinball and game shows,” said Richard Franke, Creative Director, Burnout CRASH! “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.”
EA said the game features three game modes available across 18 crash junctions in six unique locations, each requiring different skills and strategies to maximize damage and destroy everything in sight.
“Burnout CRASH! is also EA’s first Xbox LIVE Arcade title to feature a game mode designed exclusively for Kinect in which two teams use gestural controls to play on one television in a party battle!”Add to favorites
