During Electronic Arts' annual Summer Showcase last week, the publisher made official Burnout Crash, the long-rumored new entry in Criterion Games' racing franchise. It was announced for a vague fall 2011 release, but now EA has tightened that window.

Burnout Crash will speed to the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this August. Unfortunately, EA did not affix a more specific release date or a price to the game.

Burnout Crash sports three game modes across six unique locations, and it boasts 18 crash junctions. Additionally, the game supports the Autolog feature, an online social infrastructure that was first introduced in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.

The XBLA iteration of Burnout Crash will support Microsoft's gesture-recognition technology, Kinect. The Kinect-enabled game mode has two teams using gesture controls to crash and burn in what EA calls a "party battle."
