Burnout's Crash Mode Revived As Danger Zone

It's not a complete revival of Burnout, but Three Fields Entertainment is mining the series for inspiration.

Three Fields Entertainment, the studio founded by ex-Criterion developers, has announced its next title, Danger Zone. The game looks to be a complete revival of Burnout's Crash Mode, where players would run headlong into traffic and try to cause as much vehicular destruction as possible.

"The Danger Zone is a virtual Crash Testing Facility where players step into the shoes of a dangerous driver and are challenged to survive a variety of spectacular crash testing scenarios," says Three Fields.

"Powered by Unreal Engine, Danger Zone combines real physical crashes with explosive gameplay. Shunt vehicles into oncoming traffic, take down trailers to shed their payloads and use your explosive 'SmashBreaker' to move your vehicle around. The more explosions you cause, the bigger your score."

That... sounds pretty much like Crash Mode as a standalone product. Sadly, it doesn't look like racing will be a part of the package.

The single-player mode of Danger Zone will feature "20 unique crash testing scenarios" and the game will include online connected leaderboards. Three Fields Entertainment is planning for a Danger Zone release on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. There is currently no release date.
