EA and Criterion have announced Burnout Paradise Remastered which will initially come to consoles and then head to PC “later this year”. The console version releases on 16 March.
This remaster includes the base game and eight DLC packs including the extension to the drivable world with Big Surf Island. Enhancements include hi=res textures with 4K support.
“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.”
This is a great release for console owners but PC gamers may not be too excited by this which is probably why it’s not releasing on PC at the same time.
