Stainless promises Max Damage will offer an "over-the-top" experience fitting of the franchise's history.

"Set in a world of over-the-top violence, crazy PowerUps and non-stop laughs, you play against a bunch of complete crazies in twisted automotive killing machines whose aim is purely to maim you," the developer said in its announcement. "It's the racing game where racing is for wimps."

Additionally, Stainless has confirmed that people who bought Reincarnation will get a free copy of Max Damage for PC later this year.

Here are some other key takeaways for Max Damage, as written by Stainless:

  • Over 30 cool custom killing machines, each with their own highly distinctive character
  • 10 large open environments to explore
  • A host of moving targets to hunt down for points, including pedestrians in wheelchairs & mobility scooters, cyclists, bears and aliens
  • Career mode with 6 different event types
  • Multiplayer with 4 online event types
  • Fully featured action replay mode; to relive all the action again from any perspective.
  • … with over 90 crazy PowerUps, complex car damage and repair system, blood, laughs and much, much more.

My expectations are pretty low right now.

All they really need to do is make it like Next Car Game but with pedestrians and points for destruction.

I have the feeling that this one will be just as much of a disappointment as the last one.

I had a hell of a time while playing the originals. I can't wait to play this new version. This one is definitely on my list.
