The lights are on
FlatOut developer Bugbear Entertainment (Ridge Racer Unbounded, Flat Out) hasn't settled on a name for its currently titled Next Car Game project (at least we hope they haven't). That has stopped the team from showing off just how excited they are to destroy some motor vehicles.
In the video below, you can see a number of different ways Bugbear has tested its tech. What starts out as a simple collision experiment evolves into a experiment in grinding, smashing, and demolishing.
You can preorder Next Car Game via Bugbear's website for early access and vote for it through Steam's Greenlight program.
Our TakeAs a fan of Burnout and, more recently, Need for Speed, I'm thrilled to see that the art of automobile destruction is being advanced. I don't know what "Next Car Game" will be called or how it will be structured, but I'm interested.

This is my kind of game.
Let us go fast in this game! I'm tired of the constant drifting we see in ''racing games.''
And so the awful slaughter of cars each year to satisfy the wants of others shall decline. Thank you, my talking Beetle is safe now.
I can already see "Burnout" using this. Yes!!!
What could this beautifully destructive gem be, hmm?
Looks great, although they need to implement wheel and tire damage.
I hope it's another Burnout game.
I'd love to see stuff like this or a scaled-down version of the soft-body collisions in BeamNG Drive in AAA games.
Looks like crap compared to Soft-Body physics.
I like the name
If the final game involves horrifying deathtraps like these, then I'm in. I wasn't wowed by the physics, though.
it's about time someone picked up this engine. saw demos for this a few years back, and it looks amazing.
BeamNG.drive is still better, but this is pretty cool!
The physics look a little suspect to me. The weight does not look quite right, the energy transfer looks odd both when it is bouncing off an object and also how the car hangs off objects. Obviously just my opinion, I could be very wrong here. The way the metal shears off however, looks fantastic! The destruction to the frame itself is impressive as well. I look forward to the evolution of cars shredding apart in the future.
It's a great start!!
