As if the gaming calendar wasn’t already packed enough, EA has confirmed the long-rumoured remaster of Burnout Paradise, and it’s coming this March.
To go along with the trailer featuring that music, we’ve got the following blurb. Get hyped, it’s finally happening.
Burnout Paradise Remastered includes the original base game and the eight add-on game packs released during the Year of Paradise*, including the extension to the drivable world with Big Surf Island. 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 with supporting 60FPS on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.
“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,” said Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games. “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. It will be available later this year on Origin™ for PC, 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 9th March, 2018 via the Play First Trial.
