Today, developer Three Fields Entertainment announced that Danger Zone is set to launch on May 30, 2017.

For those that don’t know: late last month the developer — which is comprised of former Burnout developers and who recently put out Dangerous Golf and Lethal VR — announced Danger Zone, which it pitched as a spiritual successor to Burnout’s highly-popular Crash Mode turned into an entire game. Here’s an overview via the developer itself:

Danger Zone is an all new 3D vehicular destruction game, a genre we know well. The concept is simple : crash for cash by creating the biggest car crash.

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

It’s easy to crash, but can you also grab all of the Bonus Pickups?

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.

If you’re feeling burnt out by congestion and jammed roads, take the highway to the Danger Zone. Take your revenge on rush hour traffic. This place is a paradise for those who like their driving flame-grilled.

Features:

  • Single Player Game Mode featuring 20 unique crash testing scenarios.

  • Connected Leaderboards allow comparison of player scores between Friends and the whole world.

Danger Zone will cost $12.99 USD and be available on PS4 and PC.

Below, you can check out an accompanying new trailer which showcases the game’s gameplay for the first time. Additionally, you can read about why everything is riding on Three Field’s new title here.
