Ex-Burnout staff announce Dangerous Golf for PS4
Alex Ward (Burnout) and some of his friends from Criterion formed a new studio in February 2014, called Three Fields Entertainment. Now they’ve revealed their first game, Dangerous Golf! Its essentially doing for golf games what Burnout did for racers. Its coming out this May on PS4, listen to Three Fields describe it:
For our first title, we wanted to make a wild, physics-powered experience that harnesses the gameplay, technology, and power of PS4. We also wanted to focus on what we do best — which is making fast, fun, and spectacular arcade style games. Dangerous Golf is just that. It’s as serious a true golf game as Burnout was a serious simulation of real driving.
We wanted to see what would happen if we mixed the attitude of Burnout with the destruction of Black whilst powering up a golf ball and setting it on fire — a clear nod to NBA Jam, one of my all-time favorite games. This type of fast gameplay has always been part of our DNA and it’s something we hope you’ll enjoy playing.
Sign me up. I loved a great deal of Ward’s work in the past. An action/arcadey golf game? I also enjoy those, like Hot Shots Golf and Mario Golf. Can’t wait to play this one later in the spring.
