From Three Fields Entertainment comes Dangerous Golf, a game reminiscent of Burnout's good ol' crash mode.

Players will play through a variety of courses and game modes, wreaking havoc where they please. The mixture of chaos, fast-paced destruction, and arcade-styled gameplay will make for an experience that is quite literally smashing.

Eager buyers can expect the game to release for digital download on June 3.

Destruction lovers are just salivating at the opportunities here.

The goal of the game is simple: complete the courses, and cause as much damage as you possibly can. 

The game will feature:
  • Four unique locations. Battle it out in an American Kitchen, English Castle, French Palace, or Australian Outback. 
  • A world tour mode. Players will get the chance to embark on a "world tour of destruction." They'll be taken to a variety of courses around the world, each featuring distinctive gameplay mechanics.
  • Cooperative play. Take the destruction to new heights with your friends and families. Two golfers can play simultaneously and double the amount of damage done.
  • Party golf mode. Pass the controller around and see who sets the highest score.

Each location will require you to utilize different gameplay mechanics.

It's been a while since I've played Burnout, and unfortunately, no game has successfully managed to replicate the experience of the game's crash mode. Dangerous Golf seems like the closest thing we'll get, and so far, it looks amazing.

Stay tuned for further updates as the game progresses.

Burnout spiritual successor teased Sat, 03 Oct 2015 06:29:43 -0400 Jason Green

There are two types of racing games. Simulators, like the Gran Turismo series and Driveclub, and car combat games. The Burnout series reigned supreme in this second category for a while. With games like Burnout: Revenge and Burnout: Paradise, Criterion games had the monopoly on wrecks. It's been seven years since Burnout: Paradise, and Criterion is finally teasing a sequel...sort of.

A new company named Three Fields Entertainment, founded by Criterion heads Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry, sent out a few tweets saying that there's a racing coming from Three Fields next year. 

"What sort of driving game you ask? A spiritual successor. Speed. Traffic. And crashing. Lots and lots of crashing."

This tweet clearly references the Burnout series and its affinity for crashing.

The original developers, Criterion, shifted away from the Burnout series in 2009 to develop the Need for Speed series. Around 2013, the studio faced even more downsizing, and the two heads opened a new studio. A new, full Burnout game would definitely be a welcome return to those itching for mindless destruction.

Twitter is the land of breaking news.

Alex Ward announced that he and Fiona Sperry, founding members of the EA owned studio Criterion, who bought us the crash and smash hit franchise Burnout have founded a new company. We know very little about the studio's aims so far, though they have a website and Twitter account to follow.

Say hello to...  

Today we are excited to announce our new British games company -Three Fields Entertainment," Ward said. “We are looking for talented Staff who are skilled in at least three fields of creating electronic entertainment.

Criterion is currently based in Guildford, England. The location seems popular for a lot of studios, large and small. Will Three Fields Entertainment stay there? I'd say it is a safe bet...

I for one very excited by this. I can only dream about them getting the Burnout rights back from EA. Did you play any of the Burnout franchise? Do you want a fresh IP? Let us know in the comments section below!
