New FlatOut brings Chaos & Destruction

The amount of racing games offered this generation have been quite a few, to say the least. But when it comes to the destructive kind, such as Burnout or FlatOut, we’ve been out of luck despite the fact that they both have made one appearance each. And while we’re still waiting on Criterion to step up, Team 6 Game Studios and Strategy First have already done it, announcing FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction.

This new iteration will boost the already famed FlatOut formula with new characters, new vehicles (including tanks and bulldozers), new tracks, new locations, new game modes and all-new multiplayer modes for friends to bash it out online. The game will be fully integrated with the new Razer Hydra controller (powered by the Sixense motion tracking tech) and will be housing a brand-new physics engine capable of delivering over 20,000 destructible objects per track. It would seem there’s potential for the game to live up to its name.

Last but not least, yes… the rag doll tossing-fiesta is back in FlatOut 3.

FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction will provide the millions of fans of the franchise wide ranging game modes, extensive content, new vehicles and much more,” said Strategy First director Emanuel Wall. “We have more than doubled the amount of game play hours from previous installments and for the first time offer a fully integrated motion controller powered by Sixense which will complement SteamWorks. The game has received enthusiastic feedback from the FlatOut fanbase who were extremely involved in its development. We are confident that this sequel will surpass the already high expectations of our loyal fans.”

FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction launches on PC (via Steam) on December 13th (!) at $29.99, with a 10% discount when pre-ordered. Yeah, that’s merely a week from today so it’s time to get geared up. And if that’s not good enough news for you, get the FlatOut Complete package instead, which includes FlatOut 3 and pretty much all the FlatOut you’ll ever need, for $39.99 (with a 10% discount when pre-ordered as well).
