The Closest We’ll Get to Having an Actual New Burnout Game
Two all-new car destruction games have been announced by Three Fields Entertainment, the studio led by former Burnout creators Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward. The games are called Danger Zone 2 and Dangerous Driving, and they’re probably the closest we’ll ever get to having a true Burnout sequel.
Danger Zone 2 is the sequel to the first Danger Zone released last year. Just like the original game, Danger Zone 2 will once again focus on crash testing, but instead of it being set in a virtual crash testing facility, it’ll now be set on real public outside roads. Expect to see the freeways of the US, the motorways of the UK, and autovias of Spain. The final game will come loaded with 26 single-player levels across 17 different locations.
“Danger Zone 2 is a significant step up from the first game with lots more driving including drifting and boosting, a variety of objectives, brand new vehicles and even more spectacular crashes,” Sperry said.
As for Dangerous Driving, it’s the one that sounds the most like a true Burnout successor. Dangerous Driving is a closed-track competitive arcade racing game that will feature “boosts, takedowns, destruction and the biggest car crashes seen in a racing game to date.”
“We’re taking all that we’ve learnt to develop our most ambitious title to date,” Ward said about Dangerous Driving. “Dangerous Driving gets me back to making arcade racing, the kind of software I am most passionate about.”
Danger Zone 2 will release in July on PS4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99. Dangerous Driving is scheduled for a Winter 2018 release but no platforms have been confirmed yet.
