EA has announced the next game in the popular Burnout series, Burnout 5 (who woulda thunk it), is currently in development for the PS3 & Xbox 360.
What’s new about Burnout 5? Freedom apparantley. You can wreak absolute chaos in Paradise City (strange kind of Paradise) on any part of the city that takes your fancy. It’s an open world to do as much damage to your vehicle & any other vehicle that is unwittingly foolish enough to get in your way.
When you enter Paradise City you are given a Drivers License which tracks & keeps a record of all your misdemeanors & when your reputation reaches a certain mark you will face off against the most notorious “burners” & their goal isn’t to cross the finish line first…
Criterion Games director of games design, Alex Ward had this to say about Burnout 5:
“Burnout 5 is a complete reinvention of the series, built from the ground up for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. To create truly next-generation gameplay, we needed to create a truly next-generation game, from top to bottom.”
The game will apparantley arrive sometime 2007.
Is freedom the way to go for the Burnout series? You can have your say here.
