One of the best racing games of the previous generation (and one of my personal favorite games of that entire era) is getting a remastered edition. Electronic Arts and Criterion Games have announced Burnout Paradise Remastered. It’s coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 16. It will arrive later this year on PC (Origin).
Burnout Paradise Remastered will include all eight add-on packs, including Big Surf Island. This will be the first chance Big Surf Island will appear on PC. It also features several technical improvements such as higher resolution textures, and 4K and 60 FPS on 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, is as fun and unique today as it was back then,” said Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games. “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. Featuring Criterion’s trademark speed and destruction with awesome stunts and spectacular crashes. With the release of this remaster, we’re able to share this action-packed ride and innovate online vehicle play with a whole new generation of players.”
Burnout Paradise originally launched in 2008 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as the fifth game in the racing series. It featured a unique open world design in Paradise City, where every street corner held a race or event.
Burnout Paradise Remastered is rated E for Everyone. It’s coming March 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and later this year on PC. EA Access Members will get to play Burnout Paradise Remastered before its official launch on March 9.
