Three Fields Entertainment has confirmed that online multiplayer will arrive for Dangerous Driving on PlayStation 4 as part of an update today. The PC update will arrive “as soon as it’s ready” and the Xbox update will arrive “next week.”
Online play was the main missing feature from the game when it launched back in April, but we always knew that it would be released within a couple of months.
Three Fields has been keeping fans up to date via their Twitter account, detailing the update submission process. They had to resubmit to Microsoft but decided to push the PS4 one live without a delay, saying:
“Rather than delay all versions due to the Xbox resubmission we have decided to stagger the online release of #DangerousDriving. PlayStation4 should come online TONIGHT. PC to follow as soon as it’s ready and Xbox next week.”
The Dangerous Driving update is live on PS4 right now and comes in at 970.0 MB. The update will include the following:
- 6 player online racing.
- A Ranking system directly related to your finishing position in each race. Finish a race and you will get 1 point plus another point for every person you beat, giving a maximum of 6 points per race (As we add more game modes we will likely add more ways to earn points).
- 18 pre set events.
- Client Server but without a dedicated Server – so one player will be the host and they will create the game and choose the event (and hence the car).

Dangerous Driving’s online update is available now on PlayStation 4 and next week on PC and Xbox One.
