Watch this released footage from Criterion Games’ upcoming reboot of Need For Speed Most Wanted. All cars are unlocked from the start, but you still need to find them through-out the game.
Need for Speed Most Wanted is scheduled for release on October 30th 2012. For more information visit the official website.
Burnout Crash is a top down “blow’em up” car crashing game by Criterion, that provokes your ability to solve puzzles, blow stuff up and complete certain tasks on each level to obtain stars in order to unlock other levels and vehicles.
Using the Burnout name was a slick way to capture some attention but make no mistake, this game has ZERO to do with the widely adored Burnout series. Of course this is not to say the game isn’t fun by any means.
Burnout Crash is an upcoming racing game developed by Criterion Games. The game will be downloadable this fall from the PlayStation Store and Xbox 360 marketplace. In Burnout Crash you will attempt to cause as much damage to the environment and other vehicles as possible, by driving through 3 different modes and 16 different intersections the game offers.
Codemasters has been at work for the past 12 months developing a new FPS (yes, another one), and it will be running on the EGO engine (the same one as DiRT. GRiD, and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising). Given that, at least, it will have a cool look to it.
The development of the game will be headed by Creative Director Stuart Black, who did work on Criterion Games’ Black back in 2006 (which was one of last generation’s last few hyped up games). Though Black only got above-average reviews (around 75-80% overall), it was packed with action and a robust damaging engine (not surprising, since it came from the same folks who did the Burnout series). Hopefully Codemasters will build upon that original concept, since Criterion currently has no public plans for a sequel to Black.
No material had been released for the game yet (like trailers and screenshots), so it remains to be seen whether or not it resembles Black. If the damage engine and all that is improved upon, it should be good fun at least!
