    Driving games will soon be a lot more interesting

    [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5jUfe5jKk8]BeamNG progress update! New cars, intervehicle collision, breaking glass, and more! - YouTube[/VIDEO]

    It is evident even with the most realistic car games that crashes have mainly been left off of the realism menu. Sure, hit a wall or another car and there will be some damage and crumpling, but it usually doesn't look like a genuine car crash. A start-up company called BeamNG is working to change that, developing a physics modification for the Cry Engine 3 to create wrecks that appear to be lifted from a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash-test video.

    They team has been at it for a while, and the latest multicore version shows off one- and two-car collisions that feature shattering glass and more realistic deformations. They're still at work on it and have promised more improvements, but the video below shows off just how real things are about to get in the world of video games. Well, once a game maker decides to use the Cry Engine 3 for a driving game, that is...
    This is how good car crashing in video games is about to become

    Holy crap this is awesome

    That is going to be awesome. Used to hate back in the old Colin McRae days when you would put the car in the trees at speed and nothing visible happened.

    Carmageddon is getting a remake?

    I don't think Gran Turismo will ever deviate from the "no damage - ever" design goal they have.
