FlatOut 4 marks the return of the popular racing game in which reckless driving and destructible environments are par for the course.
There is a distinct lack of arcade racing games in recent times. If you’re a racing sim fan, there’s a lot to choose from. Even hybrids like Forza Horizon 3 are well-represented. But we haven’t really seen that many crazy, over-the-top racing shenanigans like the Burnout series in a while. Well, that’s all over now as Burnout’s little cousin is back. FlatOut 4: Total Insanity brings back vehicular mayhem in a big way.
The last few games in the series didn’t really do that well so publisher Strategy First enlisted the help of developer Kylotonn (creators of 2005 indie first-person shooter Bet on Soldier) for this new entry. And it really looks a lot like the old, beloved FlatOut games. FlatOut 4 has a variety of features that should keep fans busy for a while. There are 27 customizable cars in total that you will unlock as you play through the game.
FlatOut 4: Total Insanity features 20 dynamic tracks, which includes traditional derby racing, time trials, arenas, assault levels, carnage levels, and more. Naturally, the environment on the tracks is fully destructible. You can expect a lot of wild high speed collisions, big explosions, and just see things being torn apart in all manner of entertaining ways. In addition to the single player mode, FlatOut 4 offers online and local multiplayer. Up to eight players will be able to master destruction arenas and race courses online. The hot seat mode allows you and your friends to take turns in the stunt competition.
FlatOut 4: Total Insanity is out now on Steam. If you buy it before April 11, you’ll get a 15% discount and all three soundtrack DLC packs for free (their usual price is $9,99 apiece).Published in
