Dangerous Golf News Post

Three Fields Entertainment has scheduled Dangerous Golf to be released in May, downloadable from the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store and Steam. As the title of the game indicates, this isn't your average golf game. In fact, the creators of Burnout and Black are behind it.

We haven't found any hands-on impressions or any gameplay videos yet, but read the full press release below and let us know what you think.

Smash a priceless chandelier, set fire to a gas station and destroy a kitchen full of china ó this isnít your average golf game.

Available for download at the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store and Steam in May 2016, Dangerous Golf is an irreverent, silly, fun approach to golf games that challenges players to break the rules and wreak havoc on more than 100 holes in four unexpected locations.

Itís as serious a golf game as Burnout was a serious simulation to driving games. We wanted to mix the attitude of Burnout with the destruction of Black whilst setting the golf ball on fire ó a nod to NBA Jam. This type of gameplay is part of our DNA, and something we think our fans will truly enjoy.

In Dangerous Golf, players arenít striving for Par or aiming for Birdie ó theyíre playing for dollar damage as their high score. As they progress throughout the game, players will not only be awarded points for trick shots and ricochet techniques, but theyíll also get rewarded for destroying stuff by turning their golf ball into a bomb and setting off their SmashBreaker. Destructive powers increase as the ball heats up, ensuring that the most elaborate shots are not only the most rewarded, but the most impressive to watch.

The action takes place in a series of elaborate indoor and outdoor locations including a hotel kitchen, a glittering palace ballroom, a rural gas station and a stately medieval castle. Featuring turn-based play in both on and offline multiplayer, Dangerous Golf awards points based on destruction, encouraging players to get creative as they wreak havoc in an effort to increase their score.

Dangerous Golf may be a fun, silly golf game, but itís one that was created with a serious technical edge. Our team worked closely with both Epicís Unreal Engine 4 team and Nvidia to not only push the boundaries of their PhysX, Apex Destruction and Flex technologies, but also to deliver a truly physics based game experience.

As such, players will enjoy causing amazing destruction by smashing thousands of physically simulated rigid body valuables, shatter priceless heirlooms into small pieces and paint the environments with physically simulated liquids.

By harnessing the power of world class technology provided by Epic and nVidia, we are pushing the boundaries of fast action, amazing destruction and multiplayer gaming. Dangerous Golf is just the beginning of a series of games that will focus on speed, danger, excitement and destruction.

Fun idea...but unless it lands on PS+ as a free game of the month I don't think it will be 'purchaseable.' It sounds like a fun enough novelty for a few minutes but doesn't seem like something with longevity potential.

But fun concept, I'll give it that.

Yeah, hard to know what to make of this. I think the intersection on the Venn diagram of "Golf Fans" and "Mindless Destruction Arcade Game Fans" is relatively small...

If it was for IOS or Vita, I'd be really interested, but this isn't something I would play on my PC or PS4.

PASS...on any platform.

You would think the novelty for something like this would wear off quick but I loved it when they had this type of thing for The Bigs. There is something just very satisfying about breaking the **** out of things with projectiles.

Graphics look terrific. But I already talked to them and asked about the Vita and said that the engine they are using is too powerful for the Vita.

Could've been a terrific Vita game.

I might still check it out. I'm sure it'll be cheap.
