Danger Zone is a game that’s entirely focused on the things that we think matter: playing a game forpure fun and entertainment, a game that is suitable for players of all ages, a game where friends and family can gather around the television and play together. A about trying to cause the biggest car crashes whilst also trying to collect all of the bonus points.
The cars we give you to test in our special crash test facility are deliberately easy to drive. So anyone can drive into each crash test junction and cause a crash. But getting to the top of each leaderboard, amongst your friends, or being the best player on Xbox Live, is a lot trickier and will require not only driving skill, but also crash strategy and explosive tactics.
Skilled players are the ones who can cause maximum carnage as they drive along, checking other cars into oncoming traffic, and who can use their SmashBreaker explosion at just the right moment to rack up those bonus points. Each test scenario features three Bronze Pickups, two Silver Pickups and a single Gold Medal Pickup. Collect them to earn the “Smash and Grab” Bonus Award. But you must collect the pickups in medal order to try to earn the “Grand Slam” Bonus Award.
We’ve always loved Xbox Live for its friends-centric approach, going right back to the early days of the very first Xbox. We know how much more fun it is to beat your Friends scores than those of strangers, hence why we always include Friends Leaderboards as well as Global ones. And in Danger Zone we’ve added more depth to the Leaderboards, so not only can you see your Friends’ scores but you can also see how many times they’ve played that level. It’s sweeter to beat them with a single attempt when you can see they’ve tried that level 50 times.
Whilst our focus is on fun and gameplay first, we also like to push the Xbox hardware to bring the best possible gaming experience to our players. We’re really excited that the game runs at a native 4K resolution at 30hz on the new Xbox One X hardware. And if you don’t have a 4K display (not all of us have upgraded yet so we know lots of our players haven’t either), we also support a 1080p resolution at 60hz for Xbox One X owners who will be using a 1080p display.
Three Fields Entertainment is a small independent studio. There are just seven of us, all of whom have worked together for many years. We started Three Fields in 2014 with the desire to be free and independent, to be able to choose what games we wanted to make and how we wanted to make them. We want to make games that will entertain you and put a smile on your face. Let us know how we did!
