Burnout Paradise Remastered will be available as a digital download and at retail for £34.99. Part of me wants Remastered to be wildly successful so that EA will finally stop dragging their feet and get to making new Burnout games even though the original developers at Criterion have now moved on to other projects.
Burnout Paradise Remastered, coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, will include all DLC from the Year of Paradise, including the Big Surf Island update. But Electronic Arts soon moved Criterion Games over to work on the Need for Speed franchise, putting Burnout on the back burner.
As expected, Burnout Paradise Remastered also benefits from the extra horsepower afforded by Sony and Microsoft's latest consoles, with high resolution textures, 60fps, and 4K support available for the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. "Burnout Paradise is an open world arcade racer built to provide players the thrill of racing with their friends, in a free form way that's both seamless and immersive". Unless of course you have EA Access for the Xbox One, in which case you can play the game from March 9. "What we created 10 years ago, is as fun and unique today as it was back then", said Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games.
Big Surf Island: Introduces an all-new district to Paradise City with fresh discoverables, events, online challenges, and nine new vehicles. Paradise was the last entry in the main series, with just one more Burnout title later released on mobile devices in 2010.
