It’s rare for those of us on the outside to get an inside peek into the game development process, but that’s what makes videos like this all the more fascinating.

Twisted Metal co-director David Jaffe has uploaded a ten-minute “greenlight” video to his YouTube channel, which was originally produced to update Sony executives on the reboot's development progress.

The rough, narrated material provides a status report on many of the game’s modes and features – some of which were cut from the final release.

Amongst them is Chase to Vegas, a team-based multiplayer mode which saw two groups of players fighting over a heavily armed lorry on a crash course to Sin City. The mode was eventually pulled due to time restrictions.
