Split/Second brings down the house, everything else with it

Over the top is an understatement when it comes to Split/Second’s newest trailer. Two separate buildings are blown up, a freeway collapsed, an entire airport concourse is imploded and a plane is crashed right into the landing strip — and this is a racing game.

In Split/Second it’s the drivers that control the mayhem as racers weave through now-abandoned cities and urban areas all while entertaining a viewing public. So if a driver in 5th place wants to take down the leader they don’t reach for the blue shell. All they do is radio it in and driver 1 gets a building dropped on his head. Sounds fun to me.

Black Rock Studios has made a pretty trailer that will hopefully turn into an intriguing and fun game, but for now all we can do is dream. PS3, Xbox 360 and PC owners will be living that dream come early 2010 when Split/Second comes out.
