6 Ways Dangerous Driving Is The Burnout Sequel We’ve Always Wanted

Made by a team of ex-Criterion devs, Dangerous Driving is the closest thing we’ve played to a proper Burnout sequel since Burnout Paradise. If you grew up on Burnout 2, 3 or Revenge, you’ll be right at home with the cars, tracks and crashes. Find out more in our new Dangerous Driving gameplay.

The Burnout series was always a favourite of ours – different people like different iterations of the game, and Dangerous Driving caters to them all. If you preferred the game before Burnout 3 added shunting takedowns, you’ll like Heatwave, where Burnout 2’s boost chaining returns in spectacular fashion. If you prefer the violence of 3 and Revenge, then you’ll be right at home in Road Rage or Pursuit, hammering the competition into smoking bits. Our Dangerous Driving impressions and gameplay take you through all the major modes of the game and shows how they tap into the history of Burnout.

This isn’t a full Dangerous Driving review – we’ve only just jumped into the final PC version to deliver that verdict as soon as we can. But we do love the way Dangerous Driving evolves all the old Criterion ideas. The way wrecks are persistent in races is a great twist, as the second lap is now littered with the remains of your messy driving on the first lap. Or how Heatwave gives you a 2 mile top speed boost every time you chain a boost – the better you play, the faster that car will go. Don’t puke. Oh, and if you loved Burnout’s soundtrack, you’ll love how Dangerous Driving music is handled – by linking to Spotify you can bring in playlists of your choice, racing to whatever licenced music you want to.

Elsewhere in our Dangerous Driving gameplay we look at how car unlocks add a touch of strategy, how Burnout’s survival mode makes its glorious return and celebrate the return of crashing aftertouch, where you steer your car into the remains of rivals to get a fresh boost. Mmm. If you’re a sucker for slow motion crashes, then you will probably get a kick out of this. You’ll be able to get Dangerous Driving PS4 and Dangerous Driving Xbox One, but we captured this on Xbox One X – where the game is 60FPS and 1440p (sorry for the 1080p capture, our console capture card is a bit limited). We’ll show some Dangerous Driving PC gameplay ASAP.

Dangerous Driving is out on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on April 9. It is an Epic Game Store exclusive on PC however. So if that’s not your bag, you’ll just have to replay Burnout Paradise instead. If you have any questions about Dangerous Driving, pop them in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer them. Thanks for watching and hopefully see you soon.

How cars went from boxy to curvy

In the decades since, cars have just gotten curvier and curvier. The big shift from boxy cars in the ’80s to curvy cars in the ’90s, explained.

It turns out it was largely due to three interrelated factors: European style trends, a government-mandated push for fuel economy, and new technologies that allowed manufacturers to more easily design and create curved shapes.

It all started with European luxury designs… watch to learn more!
