Their site: flatout3.team6-games.com/index.php?page=index (as well as pretty much every in-game car shots)

Release date is 14 December 2011, next Wednesday (Steam only release)

BUT!


Team6 is handling it, hope it don't stain Flatout name.

So I will be definitely skipping this one... I hate Team6.

Not sure though, but this is a result of fans work bringing a new Flatout to PC since Bugbear lost their rights for Flatout after the bankruptcy of Empire Interactive (the IP holder).
Read their story: flatoutjoint.com/smf/index.php?topic=2206.0

And from what I've heard, there'll be no car deformation. And it uses Burnout-style wrecking (i.e you respawn if you die). Ugh.

Also, Flatout Wii is freaking terrible.

If it was only announced this week for release next week, chances are it will be rubbish.

I have a much higher hope for this Flatout over their HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE work on the Wii. That doesn't mean it's going to be better than the work Bugbear had accomplished.

Agree... seeing Team6 is doing the series now we can say:
R.I.P. Flatout (2004-2008). I wish Empire Interactive was still up :/

For me, the only real FlatOut was the first. After that...it's not ever been the same since then.

Star Wars Fanatic EN (494)

2011-12-09 20:24

Who wants me to review this when it's out? :p Doubt many sites will bother as it's PC exclusive.

I actually quite enjoyed Flatout 2 but it didn't have the same spirit as the original and felt more like a Burnout clone. Since Ultimate Carnage was more of a remake of Flatout 2, we haven't really had a true sequel since 2004.

At least, Team6 is trying to be cooperative in Flatout's Steam forum.
Also, no lame GFWL like UC, and LAN play option

edit: they said that the trailer is from the older built. The latest gameplay video can be seen in Steam's Flatout subforum

Apparently they are releasing a patch that will add deformable damage and an option for "classic" heavier handling and slower speed from the older FlatOut games. Rushed for Christmas much? Mind you, if that was their intention they made a complete hash out of promoting it.

Funnily I think the promised 'patch' (and even the demo itself) won't likely to be exist...


Team6's apparently never learned from their mistake.

2011-12-21 13:33

Funny to see about half of the fatal issues have been fixed in the first patch.

....It's two patch fused into one anyway, since the publisher's apparently forgot to post the first patch.

RVR72GV ID (257)

2011-12-24 04:02

What I must say? After the patch, this game isn't THAT bad.


...except for some issues and optimizations

What did the patch improve exactly?

RVR72GV ID (257)

2011-12-25 03:42

Star Wars Fanatic wrote What did the patch improve exactly?


Patch 1 (6-12-2011):
- Added ability for playing music from the Windows Music folder. (OGG/MP3/WMA/M4A formats are supported)
- Multiple stability and funcionality fixes for multiplayer
- AI difficulty rebalanced
- Car physics properties rebalanced
- Reduced timeout for dropped multiplayer clients during loading.
- Fixed performance issue in long battles with lots of cars becoming slower after a while.

Patch 2 (20-12-2011):
- Car deformation.
- Improved physics model for all cars
- Stability and funcionality fixes for multiplayer
- 'Classic' mode.
- Ability to turn health regaining on/off
- Damage multiplier option
- Improved gameplay / fov for battle, big battle and monster truck game modes

Patch3 includes:
- New destruction derby map, Moscow!
- New character, X-mas girl!
- Fixed the Tuning settings bug in multiplay.
- Serverlist displaying not only lobbies but also ingame servers.
- New 'Game-mode switch' feature now available in multiplay from within lobby.
- Fixed the 3200km/h collision location in the lumberjack map.
- Added a "reset controls" function.
- Fixed the switch-music crash (only loads MP3 now, should fix the issue)

Still plenty of annoying issues to fix though (like vehicle mass, bouncy monster trucks & offroad vehicles, etc), but they will keep on fixing the game.

If they can't fix it entirely, please, drop Team6 and give the Flatout license to Criterion or someone else who know what they're doing.

Sadly, that's Empire Interactive's fault for throwing the franchise's right to Team6 before they died.

And I afraid Bugbear will get the same Split/Second / Blur tragedy with Ridge Racer Unbounded.

I think that this game would be alot better without the name 'Flatout', as now people only compare this to older better Flatouts. This is a good racing game, but rubbish compared to older Flatouts... who agrees with me?

Agreed, but once again, blame Empire for throwing the Flatout license to a delusional abomination that is Team6, and this.

Same goes to Ridge Racer Unbounded, at first Bugbear's working on their own IP but then Namco asked and offer them to make a westernized Ridge Racer. Shits happen. Plus, since RR Vita doesn't bode well, I think something awful will happen to Bugbear following to RRU release.

Nice list, although I couldn't help noticing a few errors / missing- or incomplete information.
The list would be to long to include everything, but here are the things that just come to mind:

'Pavenzo V12' -> Rear pagani zonda, front Ferrari Enzo.
'Niago' -> Ford Superchief proto, not F-150
'Snaga Convertible' and 'SnagaGT3' -> Front Ford Focus ST 2013, rear and main body is a BMW Z4 (The Snaga is also present in 8-10 other Team6 games)
'Elatos 62' ShelbyGT500 front, Lancia Stratos 2012 rear
'Mercuar' Jaguar XF-R front, mclaren mp4-12c rear
'Counex' Lamboghini Countach new prototype rear and Peugeot EX1 front
'Mobanti Convertible' and 'Mobanti' Audi A4 DTM (leftovers from German Street Racer)
'Alarma' Ford Mustang 2008 front / main and Batmobile rear (the new one, not the old one)
'Porpala GT' Chevy Impala '68 front, Porsche GT rear

'Barra Moray GTO' -> Plymouth Cuda rear/main + pontiac GTO front
'Delucia CTi' -> Renault Clio front and Honda CRZ rear
'Xenvo-7' -> Mitsibushi Evo X combined with Danish Zenvo
'Deboz SE' -> Aston DBS rear and Lamboghini Sesto front
'Dos Supremos' -> Honda Twin
'Calyx T2' Lotus T125
'Teever333 RT' -> Chrysler300c front with TVR Sagaris rear
'Wystide' -> Front Smart Roadster + Mantide main / rear
'Dacarger TTS' -> Dodge Charger 2011 front + Cadillac CTS rear
'The Erqwi' -> Dodge Ram Van
'Moyella Z2' -> front Seat Leon / rear Toyota Supra
'El Crocco Cruncher' -> Mercedes SLR combined with Focus RS
'Nibarreth GT X3' -> Nissan GT + MG-X

'Stilecco' -> The previous (modified) car of the Team6 CEO. A Daewoo Lanos. Cool you thought the customizations resulted in a Subaru Impreza :)
