Dangerous Driving may finally resurrect Burnout

April 02, 2019 1 min read

The once proud Burnout series is not likely to make a comeback anytime soon. EA may have released a remastered version of Burnout Paradise last year, but arcade racers seem to have fallen out of style with the general public. That's a real crying shame because online play really livened up Burnout.

Thankfully, Three Fields Entertainment has been picking up the slack. An indie developer born from some of the original minds behind Burnout, Three Fields started its attempt at reviving arcade racers when it released Danger Zone in 2017. A little over a year later, Danger Zone 2 came out and expanded the scope of what that small team could do. While I think it stumbled in terms of general polish, it was easy to see that Three Fields was honing its craft before bringing us the real deal.

Now everything has come full circle. Dangerous Driving is almost a homage to the rest of the game modes that Burnout once had. Hot laps, rival races, police pursuits, road rage events: everything is here. One of the biggest features I thought was missing from Danger Zone, multiplayer, is even present. If Dangerous Driving doesn't start an arcade racer revolution, then we really don't deserve this genre.
