"Crash for cash"–that’s how developer Three Fields Entertainment describes Danger Zone. The upcoming car game comes from the founders of Criterion, which created the Burnout series. Danger Zone bears a big similarity to Burnout 3: Takedown‘s Crash Mode, encouraging you to crash and cause as much damage as possible, rewarding you with money for your mayhem. Now the game has a release date, along with a trailer.
Danger Zone is powered by Unreal Engine 4, putting you in a 3D car crash testing facility and asking you to do as much damage as possible. Three Fields says the game "combines realistic physics with explosive gameplay."
The game will feature 20 different crash testing scenarios, each with their own "unique road layout, traffic, and pickups."
Those pickups will be key, as Danger Zone tasks you with grabbing as many bonuses as possible in an effort to beat out your friends and other players on its connected leaderboard. "Take your revenge on rush hour traffic. This place is a paradise for those who like their driving flame-grilled," said Three Fields.
