The team at Three Fields Entertainment have been going from strength to strength since Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward left Criterion, releasing Dangerous Golf in 2016 and Danger Zone a year later on Xbox One. But since the Xbox One X update for Danger Zone, things went quiet. Until recently that is, when Three Fields announced not one, but two games to make up for their radio silence.
First up is Danger Zone 2. Gone is the ‘controlled’ test environment, Danger Zone 2 spills out onto the streets of USA, UK and Spain whilst retaining the same chaotic gameplay and ‘cash for crash’ rewards.
Danger Zone 2 has 26 crash junctions set in 17 real-world locations, with leaderboards for each to see how you stack up against your friends and the rest of the world. With more cars to drive and more cars to destroy, Danger Zone 2 is seemingly better in just about every way. Best of all, we don’t have long to wait as Danger Zone 2 launches on 13th July 2018, for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with added enhancements for Xbox One X from the very beginning
But wait, because there’s more!
Due to launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC during Winter 2018, Three Fields Entertainment have also announced Dangerous Driving – they seem to like that word, ‘danger’.
Dangerous Driving is described as “a closed track competitive racing game featuring boost, takedowns, destruction and the biggest car crashes seen in a racing game to date.” In itself, this sounds like a whole lot of fun but for fans of Three Fields previous work at Criterion, this is what we have been waiting for, as this sounds identical to the Takedown events introduced in Burnout 3. Fans have been pining for this for a long time and with Three Fields pedigree, we don’t have to wait much longer.
So how do these sound? Which one will you be picking up: Danger Zone 2 or Dangerous Driving? Why not both? Let us know which one in the comments below!
