Danger Zone Takes Inspiration From Burnout's Crash Mode

The new title comes from Three Fields Entertainment, founded by the creators of the Burnout series.


Crash Mode was incredibly popular in the Burnout series of games, so developer Three Fields Entertainment has decided to try to spin off the mode again into its own game, called Danger Zone.

Three Fields was founded in 2014 by the Criterion Games execs Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward. Criterion created the Burnout series, and Three Fields' first project was Dangerous Golf, which was essentially a vehicle-less version of Crash Mode. This time, Danger Zone will be more direct in the homage. 

"We are going back to our roots by creating a game in a genre we are truly passionate about," Sperry said in a news release. "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."

The Crash for Cash 3D game basically rewards vehicular mayhem. The more crashes you cause, the more of a reward you get. The single-player mode will have 20 "crash-testing scenarios," and "connected leaderboards" will be broadcast to friends and throughout the online mode.

The game is due out next month for PS4 and PC via Steam, and will cost $12.99.
