New XBLA and PSN Burnout Game

By -

Today, Criterion Games announced Burnout CRASH! The next Burnout game will explode onto Xbox LIVE® Arcade and PlayStation®Network later this year. CRASH! is returning to Burnout’s roots by prioritizing the series’ fan-favorite Crash mode, adding new top-down gameplay, exciting features and Autolog to let players compete with their friends while embracing their road rage.

In the game, players are rewarded for causing traffic chaos by crashing into cars, triggering explosions and destroying everything in sight. Powered by the acclaimed 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.”

Burnout CRASH! packs countless hours of reckless chaos into an easy to pick up, but difficult to master gameplay experience. There are three explosive 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. With a variety of player vehicles to unlock, high-value targets to seek and destroy, and crazy surprise features to discover, players will be hooked on an adrenaline-fuelled rampage to the top of the Crashwall.

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!
