Burnout Paradise Remastered is coming to PS4 and Xbox One from March 16th, inviting players to wreak havoc and unleash automotive anarchy once more. Players will be transported back into the world of Paradise City to tear it up in the ultimate driving playground, from hectic downtown avenues to the wild mountain roads. Pull off high-octane stunts and create insane car destruction in one of the greatest arcade-driving games ever created.
The game the original base game, plus all eight DLC add-on game packs released during the Year of Paradise (except the Time Savers), including the extension to the drivable world with Big Surf Island. It also features a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity, including high-res textures for players to explore Paradise City in 4K with supporting 60FPS on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games: “When people think of Criterion Games, they often remember the Burnout franchise and for good reason. What we created 10 years ago, we feel is still fun and unique to this day in the gaming industry. Burnout Paradise is an arcade racer built to provide players the thrill of racing with their friends, in a free form way that was both seamless and immersive, but also a little crazy with all the different stunts and crashes players could pull off. With the release of this remaster, we’re able to share this action-packed ride with a whole new generation of players.”
Burnout Paradise Remastered is rated PEGI 7 and is available digitally and in stores for £34.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version will come later this year for PC via Origin, bringing the Big Surf Island add-on to PC players for the very first time. EA Access members will also get to play Burnout Paradise Remastered before its worldwide launch, starting on March 9th, via the Play First Trial.
It’s interesting to note that there is not a version coming for the Nintendo Switch, since this is the sort of title that gamers would LOVE to play on the go! And especially as the Switch reaches its first anniversary.
Plus, while all the DLC is included, I really would love Burnout Revenge Remastered. That was always my favourite game in the series. Paradise had you driving to each of the races, while Revenge just put you straight into them, so you could get on with the crash/bash/smash, and no fannying about!
Revenge also impressed me the most, as it looked amazing on the original Xbox, and I remember having just had my house refurbished and relatives came round, and I made sure I was playing that game with all the speakers booming out in 5.1, and with the game on my big TV, as I knew that’d impress my 9-year-old nephew Jamie as much as it impressed me – and it did! 🙂
