Better to Burnout

It is indeed better to Burnout.

Electronic Arts announced today that developer Criterion is working on a next-generation version of its destruction-themed arcade racer Burnout. And this time, the incessant loading of game levels will be gone. The game will feature a huge, open world like that found in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Saints Row, Scarface, etc.

The game also features "brand-new next-generation technology allowing gamers to literally rip their cars in half, in the most explosive pile-ups in the series? history," sayeth Electronic Arts.

This new Burnout, bless its forever crashing, burning, exploding soul, will be out in 2007.
