Danger Zone, the car crash simulator from the lead developers behind the Burnout series, has received a release date alongside a brief new trailer.
The game was announced just last month, and is now set to launch on May 30 for PC and PlayStation 4. To coincide with this announcement, the developers at Three Fields Entertainment has released a new trailer for the game, showing off the central conceit of crashing into traffic to create the biggest, most expensive pile-ups possible.
As expected, the style of the game is remarkably similar to Burnout’s Crash Mode, blending together high speeds, crowded intersections, and big explosions. However, Danger Zone is also a more realistic and refined version of its predecessor, and fans can have a glimpse of both the similarities and differences below:
In addition to these latest developments, a number of outlets have had a chance to go hands-on with a preview build of Danger Zone, and the response so far has been generally positive, with reviewers praising the responsiveness and replayability of the game, though some have also criticised the move to a simulated environment, which apparently lacks soul.
Danger Zone is the third title from Three Fields Entertainment, following on from Dangerous Golf and Lethal VR. The studio is headed by Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry, who also founded Burnout studio Criterion Games before parting from EA back in 2013.
Danger Zone will be available on May 30 for PC and PlayStation 4.
