CODENAME: CAGNEY PACK FREEBURN CHALLENGES
70 New Freeburn Challenges
"Freeburn" is Burnout's enduring contribution to online gameplay - absolutely seamless switching between online and offline play, through the Easydrive Menu System
"Cagney" adds a further 70 new Freeburn Challenges and introduces a timer and multiple-stages to each challenges for the first time
Leaderboards log your best time as well as the players that also participated, so you can see who rules at any particular challenge
For our downloadable pack, codenamed Cagney, we evolved the Freeburn Challenge experience in 3 major ways:
1. Multi part challengesFor the first time, the Cagney update challenges strung together multiple objectives, adding depth.
Here's an example - 8 players hook up at the Observatory on White Mountain and head for the Rock Hole on South Mountain Drive taking in a long sequence of challenges. Jump over Dead Man's Edge, hit the windmill jump, race through the tubes in the building site and nail the jump sequence leading to the rock hole.
That's the sequence we play-tested today. Because so many of us were crowding through the jumps they became completely chaotic and hilarious. Stacking it in first place then repeatedly watching your rivals slam into your crash debris as you try to restart caused some immense comedy moments. The carnage contributes to creating a constantly changing Freeburn Challenge environment - it's great fun.
But that's not all...
2. Timed ChallengesEach of our Cagney Challenges features a time limit to encourage cooperation. If the team doesn't finish in time, everybody fails.
It's co-operative, but there's a competitive edge too! We call out the player that performed best, so while everyone works together to get the best team time, they're still competing against each other to be the first to finish.
