A decade after its initial release, Criterion's brilliant open-world racer Burnout Paradise is getting a second life on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unlike the Burnout Paradise: Ultimate Box which is now on Steam, however, the new PC remaster will include the previously console-only Big Surf Island expansion.
Burnout Paradise: Remastered has been rumoured for a while now, earning the title of the worst kept secret in gaming, at least in recent memory.
Burnout Paradise Boost: Includes two vehicles with unique boost abilities: the Carson Extreme Hotrod and Montgomery Hawker Mech. Burnout Paradise Remastered also features a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity, including high resolution textures for players to explore Paradise City in 4K.
First released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2008, Burnout Paradise was sadly the last entry in Criterion's destructive racing series before moving onto new projects.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will be available in both digital and physical forms and will cost £34.99 when it launches on console this March. Well a quick look at their website reveals this is their first game, but the good news is that the team includes ex-Criterion staff, which is a good sign.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will also be available to EA Access members from March 9, allowing them to play the game for ten hours before the full release.
Now, what's interesting to note is that the release date mentioned below each title is correct and the one under Burnout Paradise, is the same one we mentioned in January.
