Burnout, the seminal car-crashing simulator slash racer, has been gone for a little while. But that doesn’t mean we don’t miss it… a new studio, Three Fields Entertainment has risen from the ashes of the Burnout series and is set to launch Danger Zone – the evolution of the car crashing simulator.
“We are going back to our roots by creating a game in a genre we are truly passionate about,” said Fiona Sperry, Founder and CEO of Three Fields Entertainment. “Danger Zone takes what made the Crash Mode featured in 2004’s Burnout 3: Takedown so popular and transforms it into an all-new car-crashing, arcade-style puzzle game. We look forward to engaging those same fans by delivering an entirely new and extremely fun experience.”
What is Danger Zone?
In Danger Zone, players are challenged to drive into the junction and create the biggest First Impact that causes enough vehicles to crash to earn a “SmashBreaker,” turning their car into a bomb that can explode on command. Players score for how many cars they crash, with bonus points awarded for exploding cars by hitting them while in “SmashBreaker” or for pushing them off the road entirely. If the player’s car falls off the road, it’s game over. Connected leaderboards allow comparison of player scores for the friends you play against and the rest of the community.
