Developed by Three Fields Entertainment, Danger Zone is a game inspired by the Crash mode in Burnout where players drive into traffic at high speeds in an attempt to cause the most destruction possible. It previously released for PlayStation 4 and PC in May, but now the developers (who are ex-Criterion employees) have announced that Danger Zone is racing its way onto Xbox One this fall.
Over on Three Fields Entertainment’s official Twitter, the company said, “Danger Zone explodes on to Xbox this Fall. 12 new levels. 3 new cars. Enhanced for Xbox One X including native 4k. Follow us for news/vids.” There’s no word on what other enhancements the game will receive on Xbox One X other than native 4K support, but it’s great to see the developer taking advantage of the system’s power.
With the last Burnout game releasing in 2011, aptly a spin-off named Burnout Crash!, this may be as close as we get to the racing series any time soon. Three Fields Entertainment promises to post more videos showcasing the new levels in the coming weeks. Gamescom is taking place next week so it’s possible we could see more gameplay there, along with a possible launch date.
Danger Zone features over twenty scenarios that players can choose from in a testing facility, from crashing into parked cars to ramming various moving vehicles. If your First Impact causes enough damage, you car will explode setting off a larger chain reaction. Points are then awarded based on the degree of damage and if players hit specific goals.
