There's been a great amount of mystery and intrigue surrounding Burnout Crash, the rumored new entry in Electronic Arts' racing series. That's finally set to change, as the publisher today officially announced the game.
Burnout Crash will land this fall on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. As was rumored, it will challenge gamers to maximize the damage done to vehicles and buildings while behind the wheel. No price point was offered for the game.
Burnout Crash sports three game modes across six unique locations, and it boasts 18 crash junctions. Additionally, the game supports the Autolog feature, an online social infrastructure that was first introduced in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.
The XBLA iteration of Burnout Crash will support Microsoft's gesture-recognition technology, Kinect. The Kinect-enabled game mode has two teams using gesture controls to crash and burn in what EA calls a "party battle."
Series creator Criterion Games--which most recently developed Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit--will handle development duties on Burnout Crash.
