Car carnage-happy developer Criterion isn't just lifting the hood on the Burnout series and adding some prettier motor oil (like the studio did last year on the 360); it's completely rebuilding the engine. "There's no restrictions on what we do," says Lead Designer Alex Ward. "We're only restricted by our own stupidity." No. 5 will be an open-ended affair (think Test Drive Unlimited, except with a lot more wreckage), where Ward promises, "There's something amazing to do around every corner." You can also expect pileups that are worthy of being called "next gen," and neck-breaking crashes that result in vehicles literally snapping in half. "Cars are being built from the ground up," says Executive Producer Matt Webster. "And that's just for one reason: so we can tear them apart."
