Proto:Burnout 2: Point of Impact
This page details one or more prototype versions of Burnout 2: Point of Impact.
|This article is a work in progress.|
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Document the recently released July 27th, 2002 and August 5th, 2002 prototypes.
July 27, 2002 (Pre-Beta/version 0.1)
A "pre-beta" build compiled on July 27, 2002, identifying itself as version 0.1.
- The menu background is an even earlier version than the August builds.
- A "Pre-Beta Version" watermark is present at all times.
- Big Surf Shores is exceptionally hard in Pursuit Mode depending on the vehicle selected, as the checkpoint has been placed too far away from the start.
- How to Play videos do not exist; the GUI elements to show them appear, but they do not play.
Aug 6th, 2002 demo (PlayStation 2)
A PlayStation 2 demo build of this game exists that's compiled about a month before the final build. It normally only lets the player drive around Big Surf Shores.
The legal screen and the main menu screen both use a different background image than the final release. In fact, the final build doesn't have any kind of background for the legal screen.
Aug 31, 2002 prototype (PlayStation 2)
A "prototype" build of Burnout 2: Point of Impact for the PlayStation 2 from 2002-08-31 (about a week before the release build). This is currently the only pre-release build of this game that isn't a demo. Get it here.
Just about every single file is identical to the retail build, with the exception of the main executable.
