Split/Second trailer: say hello, and goodbye, to Downtown

Black Rock's racer Split/Second made a dramatic appearance at PAX East, as a side dish to Joystiq's Blueberry Muffin Tops breakfast -- but it's going to make an even bigger impact on Seattle, the location of the original PAX. Sort of. This latest trailer provides us long looks at the "Downtown" area of the made-for-TV world in which the game takes place, which is pretty clearly Seattle.

And that fictionalized, cordoned-off Seattle is going to be smashed to bits by high-speed sports cars, explosives and rigged construction equipment. We're all lucky we get to experience this in a game, and not in the location of an actual convention. Those things are hectic enough.

Split/Second arrives May 18. Hide your fake cities.
