You probably saw the first screens of developer Criterion's PS2 and PSP title Burnout Dominator when we posted themback in December, but publisher EA has just updated us with a new set of images and a trailer showing off the game in all its crash-infused glory.
New info reveals that "Burnouts" will make a return from Burnout 2 (where you fill up the boost meter and then drain it in one go) while Signature Shortcuts require you to perform a signature takedown at the entrance to a shortcut to unlock it. Also added is a Maniac mode which seems to be a kind of 'extreme' option that challenges you to perform multiple burnouts, get air, perform near-misses and drift round bends, all against the clock.

While the PS2 version is a strictly offline game (multiplayer mode will only be available in split-screen or a pass-the-pad party mode), PSP will offer ad-hoc multiplayer for six players at a time and a Score Sync system that allows you to compare best race times with your opponents. Criterion has also promised additional content downloads for PSP at a later date, which we're told will include new tracks.
Hit the Movies tab and select "Burnout Dominator - trailer 01-10-07" and click the Images tab above to check out the screens and trailer for yourself.
