With the release of its Burnout spiritual successor Dangerous Driving just around the corner, developer Three Fields Entertainment has unveiled the nine different modes that the game will include on release.
Dangerous Driving modes confirmed
In addition to 30 different courses, Dangerous Driving is set to include nine different modes that tap deeply into its Burnout inspired design.
Race – Takedown based race against 5 AI opponents. Players fight to be first. Dangerous and aggressive driving (near misses, drifting, driving in oncoming, near misses, battling) all earn boost allowing players to go even faster.
Heatwave – A race focused on speed. Takedowns are not active, so players must rely on their racing skills. Dropping a whole boost bar in one go refills the boost (called a Heatwave), allowing players to chain these together.
Face Off – 1 on 1 events against a rival to win their car. The rival is racing flat out so the only way to win is to slow them down via takedowns, whilst trying to avoid crashing.
- Shakedown – A fast lap against the clock. Medals are awarded based on time alone.
Eliminator – One competitor is eliminated each lap in this 5 lap race. If players are in last place the position counter will flash red. Takedown rivals to get ahead and avoid elimination.
GP – Players compete across 3 takedown race events to see who will win overall. Points are carried forward.
Survival – A solo event where players race through a series of checkpoints – how long can players survive without crashing or running out of time?
Pursuit – Play as the police and takedown targets before they escape.
Road Rage – Players must score as many takedowns as possible against the clock.
For fans of Burnout, Dangerous Driving is looking more and more like the real deal – look for our review to land soon.
Dangerous Driving is set to release on PS4, PC and Xbox One on April 9, 2019.
