[Update: Added a trailer for the game which features no gameplay and answers absolutely no questions. The game's ESRB rating offered up more info a few months back. Did you know giant lobsters will be in this game? Sold!]
Electronic Arts has announced Burnout Crash! today at its summer showcase event, and it's not entirely what you'd hoped. Yes, it's a game based entirely around the series' popular Crash mode, but not quite the way you'd imagined it...
Set for release on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this fall, the game will feature three different game modes spread across six locations and 18 crash junctions. Crash! will also make use of the Autolog leaderboard/social tech that Criterion introduced with last year's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.
Crash! will also be supporting Kinect for Xbox 360, with two teams competing against one another while using motion gestures to control and crash vehicles.
Not sure how I feel about the top down perspective, but I'll withhold judgment until I play it myself or hear more from our folks at EA's showcase today. Look out for a hands-on preview and some more details on Burnout Crash! soon.
