With the release of FlatOut under a month away, Empire Interactive has released a brand new trailer for their adrenalin-inducing racer showing off its unique ragdoll feature in all its glory. Be warned, if you object to seeing human bodies hurtling through the air and colliding with cars at 200 mph, then don't watch this.
FlatOut has already been hailed for having the most realistic damage physics engine in any racer to date, with full damage to cars and scenery within the game. Cones can be sent flying off bumpers; barriers smashed through; advertising hoardings swept aside; tyre walls obliterated; barrels battered into submission; barns careened through for cheeky short cuts. Basically, if you can see it, then you can destroy it.
The icing on the cake is FlatOut's unique ragdoll feature. Now, as well as everything around you being able to be destroyed, your driver is in danger too. Get caught out by your fellow racers and have any head on crashes and your driver will be sent hurtling through the windscreen like a crash test dummy, and fingers crossed, the car behind doesn't make things worse by driving straight over you!

FlatOut will be released for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, PC CD-ROM on November 5th 2004.
