Burnout set to dominate

Friday 8 December 2006
Burnout Dominator has been announced by publisher EA for release next year, with the new addition to the Burnout series staying current-gen on PS2 and PSP.

Dominator will have all the high speed collisions that have become the series' signature but much of the action will be served up in mini skill-based challenges such as drift or near-miss contests. The PSP version will have ad hoc multiplayer options as well as downloadable content.

Criterion Games is taking the development helm while also working on next-gen Burnout 5 - due for release on PS3 and Xbox 360. Dominator may well come as some consolation to fans of the racing series that haven't been able to get hold of a next-gen console yet.
