This article and its subpages are intended to keep track of and provide documentation for all publically available prerelease, development or otherwise non-retail prototype builds of the Burnout games. The below tables are per-game and contain basic documentation for each build; further info can be seen by visiting the build's subpage if one exists.
Most of the files present on these two standalone discs date back to around late May 2005. Several other near-identical PAL region builds of this demo exist as well, compiled between June and July 2005. Currently unknown if it can be made to support menus.
Most of the files present on these two standalone discs date back to around late May 2005. The biggest difference about these PAL demos is the MAIN##.BIN string files aren't stripped and have some early texts that predate Alpha 7.
Leaked circa January 2019. Contains a relatively large amount of differences to the final version despite being relatively close to retail, most notably the presence of debug symbols in the build's executable. Indepth documentation of its contents can be found on TCRF.
Incredibly late build with no significant differences to Revenge's retail version. (Do note the version of this build currently in distribution has been modified with files from earlier demo builds; the original untampered version is currently unavailable.)
Like Beta 7, this build has no major differences to speak of, as it was compiled very late in development.
Late prerelease build of Revenge's Xbox 360 version.
Post-retail, debug-enabled development build leaked in the Alpha Archive Discord server circa July 2020 and released on ObscureGamers near the end of that same month. Consists only of the game's executable and its debug symbols.
Another relatively early build in the same vein as the November 13 one; however this one has quite a bit more content (and is more than a bit dysfunctional, since most of its files had been destroyed at the time of its discovery and had to be recreated or ported in from other builds manually).
DLC build; features the scrapped "Breaker" island, which presumably went on to be replaced by Big Surf Island.
