The Beloved Burnout Game Is Getting Remastered for the Current Gen
Burnout: Paradise, the classic 2008 open-world racing game in which players could drive around with a roster of 150 cars in Paradise City and wreak havoc on both the public property and their own cars, is getting a remaster for PS4 and Xbox One on March 16th for $39.99. The PC version will be coming later this year on Origin. A free trial for EA Access members is also set to be available on March 9th.

Burnout Paradise Remastered includes not only the base game but also the game’s eight add-on DLCs and the Big Surf Island addition, an extension to the game’s open world. The remaster will run at 60 FPS on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X and will have support for 4K TVs.
“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 in the press release for the remaster.
“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,” he said.
