Anything with the words 'Ultimate' and 'Carnage' in the title is okay in SPOnG's book. An instalment in the FlatOut
series is likely to be worth a look too. So, when we found these new screens for Empire Interactive's FlatOut Ultimate Carnage
waiting for us in the SPOnG newsroom this morning the excitement was almost audible.FlatOut Ultimate Carnage
is the series' first next-generation outing and developer Bugbear Entertainment is promising to up the ante from FlatOut 2
for the 360; it's upped the number of cars on the track from eight to twelve, to start with. That's (count 'em) four new cars to mash up! Bugbear also tells us that there will be five new single-player modes as well as two new multiplayer modes that use Xbox Live.FlatOut 2
caused quite a stir when it was released in June last year. It sold upwards of a million copies and beat out the likes of Need For Speed: Carbon
to win the award for 'Best Racing Game of 2006? at G4?s X-Play games show.
If we're completely honest, however, it was the sheer bonnet-crunching, fender-bending goodness of the series' last game that has SPOnG excited to see Bugbear has to offer in Ultimate Carnage
.FlatOut Ultimate Carnage
is due out in June.
