Strange I can not find any new info on Flatout 4 from Kylotonn Devs. No new info at there website or their facebook page.

And according to this French gamer site, no PC version either:

If Flatout 4 going be release in March, that would mean the game about to go beta. If so, why no word from Kylotonn Devs?

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kylotonn-Games/1415419208718686?fref=ts

Only says "coming soon" on their next project. Should not it say something about Flatout 4 if it also most finish?

I wouldnt worry about it,its most likely gonna be terrible. Slightly better looking flatout with all the modern arcade racer gimmicks like changing fov/motion blur so you feel like you are driving at 5000mph. Itll be in the bargain bin by may if released in march
It a no buy if Strategy First has anything do with it. And if there no PC version.............

I wouldn't buy it no matter who was publishing it. Im still hoping for a Test Drive:EOD/ Dirt track racing reboot,but its wishful thinking as 1 company is defunct and the other is working on nascars again.

It looks like FO1 and FO2 but with worse physics
It also seems to be lacking in car deformation.

Props to them for reintroducing old Flatout modes, graphics also look very good, but it's lacking the most important parts that made the series memorable: physics and crashes. Otherwise it would have been a good arcade alternative to Wreckfest.

Itll please those who wanted wreckfest to be another flatout game no doubt. Personally ill be skipping it, as it looks like FO:UC again (better looking flatout2) and i have no interest in revisiting that.

I only see 2 and UC kind of gameplay. I'm skipping but there should be people who enjoy that game.

Gone in 60 seconds!
The environments look pretty good actually. but still... Wreckfest is where my heart is at. Yet we still have no career mode. hope Bugbear gives us one.

To me it looks as if they almost hit the mark of the old ones. Not quite. I can't get it anyway unless a PC version arrives at some point but from the trailer it looks like why bother, I still have FOUC if I feel like a go

I have FOUC also. I just like the cars but the damage is missing. Don't think I would buy if it was available for the PC. [thumbs down]

since SF is still with the series, i'm gonna be on the fence and let other people waste their money. if it's good, they'll say so. vice versa as well

Looks like they released another trailer. This looks truly awful. Not sure why this trailer says April 2017 and the first one said March 2017.

Looks like it'll run fast on older hardware. Gameplay is key; eye candy is extra.
A fun game is a fun game even with less current graphics & physics.

Awesome graphics and physics details can't save a game that isn't fun.

I guess we'll find out which one Flatout 4 is when reviews come out in April. :-\
 
I read on the Steam comments section for Wreckfest from time to time and it seems there are many who are unhappy with Wreckfest because some of the FlaoutOut fans want Bugbear to take this game in that direction. I really, really hope they do not because if they do, I'd delete this game off of my machine so fast that it would make my own head spin.

For me, the difference between Flatout and Wreckfest is the same as watching a Saturday morning cartoon or a movie.
