Burnout Crash! features a top-down perspective, cartoon visual effects and, most bizarrely, UFOs and lobster monsters.

That’s according to a listing on the Entertainment Software Rating Board’s official website, which spills the beans on EA’s still-unannounced racer.

Get the skinny on the latest Burnout outing below.

"This is an action game in which players earn points for creating traffic pileups," reads the ESRB listing. "From a top-down perspective, players initiate crashes by driving 'cartoony' vehicles (e.g., cars, trucks, vans, buses) into busy intersections; multiple crashes trigger score multipliers and rack up large 'bills' of property damage."

"Each level is accompanied by crashing sounds, small explosions, and vocal encouragement (e.g., 'Cool,' 'Maximum Carnage!'). In some levels, players are instructed to crash into police cars (e.g., 'Crash them before they bust you!'); in other sequences, oversized airplanes, tornadoes, lobster monsters, and UFOs slide across the screen, destroying any vehicles in their path."

Burnout Crash! has been rumored for some time now, and is expected to release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. However, it remains unknown whether it will arrive on disc or as a digital download.

Stay tuned.
