It’s time to hit the streets of Paradise City once again! Today Electronic Arts has officially announced Burnout Paradise Remastered, a full 1080P release of the smash hit open world racing game. Even better news: we’re only a month away from its release on March 16, 2018!
The original Burnout Paradise was loved and praised for its emphasis on pure, unadulterated fun. Get behind the wheels of your favorite car and speed through the beautiful Paradise City, and whenever you got the burnout urge, you could participate in a variety of explosive, chaotic events. Start up Showtime Mode to cause as much destruction and mayhem as you can, and watch the metal havoc unfold!
The game received various DLC packs over the course of 2009, a year after the game was originally released. The first couple of packs were simply new cars that you could get a hold of, including ones that were modeled after famous cars in media, like the DeLorean from Back to the Future. The first DLC pack that had a new game mode was the Cops & Robbers pack which included the eponymous game mode.
The final DLC pack was the “Big Surf Island,” which introduced an entirely new zone for players to explore and race in. This was perhaps the biggest pack of them all, and interestingly enough the PC version of the original release never saw this pack, nor the Cops & Robbers pack. Well PC players will be pleased to know that ALL DLC packs will be included in the Remastered version!
Burnout Paradise Remastered will release on March 16 for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version coming at a later date via EA’s Origin platform. Remastered will support 4K resolutions and 60 FPS. If you’re an EA Access member, you can play early on March 9 with the Play First Trial that grants you 10 hours of freeplay.
