The Burnout series makes its return to the major consoles today, but it’s done so by taking a totally new spin on the franchise via XBLA and PSN and including Kinect motion-control support on the Xbox 360. Burnout CRASH!, the name of the new downloadable game, is now available on XBLA and PSN for 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99, respectively.
Burnout CRASH! reinvents Criterion’s fan-favorite crash mode, offering accessibility and compulsive fun for those new to the series and gameplay depth for franchise veterans. There are three exciting game modes available across six unique locations and 18 crash junctions, each requiring different skills and strategies to maximize damage, debris and points. Gamers can also express their road rage with their whole body using the optional Kinect controls. With Kinect Party Play, up to 14 players can split into teams in turn-based gameplay and use gestural controls on one television to crash and burn in an all-out battle.
Burnout CRASH! is a crazy mix of pinball arcades, TV game shows and 80s pop music. Players can connect online, compare scores and face-off against friends, while the all-new Autolog Challenges feature lets players up the ante by sending direct head-to-head challenges to their friends.
