BurnoutAholics is 12, site crash and more...

First of all... BurnoutAholics.com is 12 years old! The site was first online on August 1st 2006! I think that is pretty good going.

Some of you might have noticed that the site has been down for a couple of days and that it now looks different.

The problems started when our host updated PHP to the latest version. This basically killed the site and I had to do some major updates to get it back online.

Hey Burners,

We have been pretty quiet, life happened... and the site was down for a bit. But Xandu has worked on it and got it back!

We are playing Danger Zone 2 and are looking forward to Dangerous Driving.

Sign up with Three Fields Entertainment to get email updates and support them in creating Burnout successors, like them on social media and subscribe on YouTube.

We will keep maintaining this site as an homage to the Burnout series.

Look out for our gamertags on Xbox and BurnoutAholicsHQ on PlayStation!

Keep Burning!

Shiny Red Something

There has been a flurry of excitement caused by Three Fields Entertainment as they announced on Twitter that the next game they will work on will be a spiritual successor to Burnout 3.

Burnout 3 was arguably the greatest of all of the Burnouts. It was the reason for my addiction. It was where our Burnout community was founded as it was the first time we had been able to Burn online, together.

There are many highlights of Burnout 3. The takedowns and rivalries, the tracks and crash junctions, the music and sound effects, the speed and mayhem.

The people behind Criterion Games have started a new studio called Three Fields Entertainment. It seems like both Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry are involved in the new company. The studio website currently does not have a lot of information on it except for contact information and a logo.

Three Fields Entertainment will be creating games for all platforms where they can self-publish.

Burnout Revenge Servers are still online

Burnout Revenge Servers are still online! If you have problems connecting to the EA servers and use your gamertag on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One the solution is as follows.

1. Turn on and sign in on both consoles (Xbox 360 and Xbox One)
2. Launch Burnout Revenge on the Xbox 360 and find a race or host your own.

Returning to the lobby after a set of races seems to be pretty slow, but it works so be patient.

Truck Stop - Burnout Inspired Crash Game by Indie Developer

Truck Stop is new Burnout style crash game developed by Adam Sawkins aka “DjArcas”.

In the version we have tested you can tweak your vehicles handling and parameters before sending it crashing down an obstacle-filled level. The more damage you inflict on the Crash Test Dummy, the bigger your score!

The mechanics and gameplay feels like a mix of the Crash Modes in Burnout 2: Point of Impact, Burnout 3: Takedown and Burnout Revenge and the idea is probably to create a next-gen crash mode.


Truck Stop Trailer - with previews of the levels Train Station, Zombie Nation and Mars Attack!

The game is developed in Unity and the beta version we have tried feels quite rough and unfinished. Truck Stop is a work in progress and we expect huge improvements as development progresses.

As the game grows and develops, Projector Games plan to listen to the community, and implement more vehicles, levels and ragdolls.

To support the development of the game you can:

  • Vote for the game on Steam Greenlight
  • Buy the game on IndieCity for $5
