Crashing your car in real life is, at the very best, a huge inconvenience. It can be much, much worse. It’s kind of weird, then, that crashing them in video games is so fun. And the absolute distillation of that fun is coming back to gaming in just a couple weeks thanks to Three Fields Entertainment.
Danger Zone strips out all the complications of the Burnout series – races, tracks, an open world in the case of Burnout Paradise – and give us what is arguably the best part: crash mode.
Fun for the whole family
Many years ago, Burnout‘s crash mode could entertain a whole room. It’s spectacle and competition wrapped up into one package. Three Fields’ team is made up of many veterans of the Burnout games, so it seems likely they know what works and what doesn’t. And, after Dangerous Golf, this should give fans what they want.
The game offers up 20 crash-testing scenarios, with leaderboards for each. If the game does well, I imagine we could see even more come along.
Danger Zone is set to hit PC and PlayStation 4 on May 30, and it’ll cost $12.99.
