The game promises to offer rewards for "traffic chaos by crashing into cars, triggering explosions and destroying everything in sight". There will be a total of 18 junctions available to smash up in the final release.

Criterion confirmed during EA's Summer Showcase event this evening that the game would take advantage of an upgraded version of Autolog. No gameplay footage was shown at the event, however.

Interestingly, despite the game being playable on EA's demo floor, the publisher opted to demonstrate a four-player version Scrabble rather than Criterion's latest downloadable racer. That probably speaks volumes about the quality of the product.

We'll remain objective for the time being. At least until we see more.
