Now that the demo is out we can definitely tell a few things about objects. My favorite aspect of the new game is how the objects have different levels of effect. Bushes/shrubs - drive right through with no apparent effect. Garbage cans drive through them - but they slow you down a little bit. Hay bails slow you down a little more. Metal light poles slow you down even more. Trees stop you dead in your tracks.
I think it’s awesome how the different objects have varying levels of influence on the car. Really cool feature IMO!
