It's not a new Burnout game. The next game from Criterion is... different.
Crash, Boom, Bang: If GTA V hasn't sated your need for intense car chases, Need For Speed: Rivals likely will. This latest trailer shows the new kinds of challenges they're adding to chases, which let you unlock upgrades.

As teased on the series' Facebook page earlier today, along with the text "Have no rules, show no mercy."
Need For Speed: Most Wanted is a video game shot out of a cannon.

The Need For Speed team has been busy showing off Need For Speed: Most Wanted for a few months now, particularly the multiplayer aspect.
While Burnout creators Criterion got a lot of credit for revolutionising racing games with their design for 2007's Paradise, they deserve just as much for the multiplayer stuff that makes 2010's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit a much better game than a lot of people realise.
Maybe you've had that moment on the highway where you pull up next to a fancy sportscar.

One of my happiest discoveries at E3 a couple of weeks ago was that this fall's strangely-named Need For Speed: Most Wanted could and maybe should be called Burnout Paradise 2.
Burnout developers Criterion are back with another Need for Speed game, a reboot of sorts of the Most Wanted series.
If there's one thing that video game trailers could use more of, it's David Hasselhoff. So thank goodness for Criterion and EA, who conscripted the 'Hoff to appear in the latest trailer for the just-released downloadable Xbox Kinect game Burnout: Crash.
