For the full details of what updates will be available for Danger Zone please see the roadmap here

Does Danger Zone have any enhancements for PlayStation4 Pro?

If running on PlayStation Pro Danger Zone has the option for 4K Temporal Checkerboard rendering.

We have also added PS4 Pro 1080p 150% super sampling

In addition when running on PS4 Pro the game has more sparks, more explosions, higher quality VFX and better anti aliasing.

 

Why do some people’s attempts and wrecks show as zero on Xbox

If a player has locked down privacy, for example if they are a child then the only stat that will show on the leaderboard is their highest score. Their attempts and number of wrecks will not show.

This is a feature of Xbox One’s privacy policy and is not under our control as developers.

In a future update we will change the 0 to show as # to avoid confusion

What is the minimum/recommended spec PC for Danger Zone?

You’ll ideally need a PC that meets our recommended spec.

  • Windows 10 64 bit
  • Intel i7 3.5 Ghz / AMD FX 9590
  • 8 Gb Memory
  • Nvidia GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 290
  • DirectX 11
  • 15Gb Disk space

We assume you have the recommended spec and as such the game defaults to the following settings:

  • 1920 x 1080
  • 60 fps
  • Epic Settings for Anti-Aliasing, Texture Quality and Shadow Quality
  • Medium Settings for Sparks and Explosions

If you have a better graphics card than our recommended spec then feel free to increase the resolution and turn up the Sparks and Explosions!

If you experience any performance issues it’s likely your PC and/or graphics card is not powerful enough and we recommend you turn down your settings and reduce the frame rate to 30 fps.

Tips for doing well in Danger Zone

There is a knack to playing Danger Zone well and getting to the top of the Leaderboards. Here are our top tips for maximising your score. Contact us with your own tips.

  • SmashBreaker is key – setting it off explodes vehicles around you, building a SmashBreaker chain, and during the explosion you can move your vehicle (using left stick, rotate camera with right stick).
  • Look for SmashBreaker pickups located in the levels – these can be used instantly.
  • Fire your SmashBreaker wisely – ideally at the moment where there is a LOT of traffic around you.
  • Use the traffic to move you where possible and save your SmashBreaker for when it can have maximum impact.
  • Collecting all the Bronze and Silver Pickups earns you cash and most importantly will reveal the Gold Pickup.
  • Collect all Bronze, Silver and Gold Pickups to get the ‘Smash and Grab’ Bonus ($2.5 million).
  • Collect Medal Pickups in their medal order (Bronze, Silver, Gold) to ensure you get the biggest ‘Grand Slam’ bonus ($5 million).
  • Same way traffic can be used as a missile by ‘checking’ them into other vehicles.

More to come soon!

The game crashed. What should I do?

We have very rarely seen the game crash and so if you do experience a crash we’d like to know about it so we can investigate what happened.

Note down the time of the crash in your time zone and email us with these details.

Contact details can be found here.

The few crashes seen to date on PlayStation4 have been related to one of the following:
1) A corrupt download
2) A corrupt save game
To attempt to fix 1), delete the game and redownload (remembering to back up your save game and Trophies first)
To attempt to fix 2), back up your save game and Trophies and then delete your save games (game and Trophies).

If this doesn’t help you please contact us as above.
