According to the ESRB ratings board, this is a top-down racing game featuring "cartoon" vehicles and plenty of crashing. Apparently players will earn points for creating traffic pile-ups. Sound familiar?
Here's the full synopsis provided by the ratings board:
This is an action game in which players earn points for creating traffic pileups. From a top-down perspective, players initiate crashes by driving cartoony vehicles (e.g., cars, trucks, vans, buses) into busy intersections; multiple crashes trigger score multipliers and rack up large bills of property damage. Each level is accompanied by crashing sounds, small explosions, and vocal encouragement (e.g., Cool, Maximum Carnage!). In some levels, players are instructed to crash into police cars (e.g., Crash them before they bust you!); in other sequences, oversized airplanes, tornados, lobster monsters, and UFOs slide across the screen, destroying any vehicles in their path.</blockquote>
We're pretty certain this game will be mentioned at E3. We're quite excited about seeing this one in action to be honest. It sounds really neat. Burnout's Crash mode has always been one of the most fun components in an all-round stellar series.
