FlatOut 2 tops 1m, 360 edition dated

Empire Interactive's racer hits milestone; first game for new console renamed FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage, now due in June.

by

After developing a long line of minor releases, such as Bad Boys II and Ford Street Racing, Empire Interactive appears to have a genuine hit on its hands in the form of FlatOut 2. Today, the British-headquartered publisher announced the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 racing game has sold a total of 1 million units worldwide--just one month after it hit the 500,000 unit mark.

Empire also used the occasion to narrow the launch window of its first FlatOut game for the Xbox 360--and tweak its title. Originally called FlatOut: Total Carnage when it was first announced last year, the game is now known as FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage. It will arrive in stores in June, but as of now, no rating or pricing information for the game is yet available.

The PC version has all I need. With settings turned up it just looks like an XBOX 360 game with an HDTV

Flatout has to be the greatest racing game ever made. I dont care what anyone says it is definately the greatest. I own the first 2 and I will get this one with out a doubt!!!!

sounds awesome but I really hope they get rid of those lame characters. I got so tired of fighting for first with the same "person" over and over.

A quality, very underrated game that deserves its platinum status. Goes to show gamers can indeed spot quality where critics fail to do so. I've been playing this game for months and am still having a blast.

This is GREAT news.. I love flatout 2. Never had so much fun since "Destruction Derby" for the PS1. And to think, it's coming out for the 360... I'm there.

I love how fanboys com here to brag that this is only a PS2 port, guess what? It was also for the xbox, but this game will probably suck.

I hope this game gets some much needed work. I had fun with it. But, it was clearly a B level game at best.

Worst thing is about this GIF, is that Burnout have fallen very far from grace with Burnout: Revenge which was appallingly bad, so this could actually be better than anything coming from EA anytime soon.

Nice to see this, I personally enjoy the game a lot. The PC version has pretty decent graphics by the way.

Interesting. I know Empire Interactive for its relatively minor ports of SEGA games to PC, but to think they'd have a million seller... good for them, I suppose.

Hope this turns out good on a next-generation console.

I rented the original FlatOut for xbox, and it was lots of fun driving the wrong direction and making the computer AI crash into you. Hopefully the 360 version will have a save feature for replays of crashes. Watching my character fly all over the place was fun. online multiplayer for the 360 version would be cool, too. although I'll still probably only rent this, i'm really waiting for the new Burnout game for the 360.

The Flat out games are fun, especially the mini games! The racing is basically a Burnout derby mix which is cool too.

yeahy, I love flatout 2, but i have a 360 so I never got the chance to play it much in my mates. Saying that, I dont think I ever played racing it, I just play the mini games when i'm having a few beers
