After many rumors and possible leaks about Burnout Paradise Remastered we finally get a firm release day from EA and it’s a lot sooner than expected. You’ll be able to hop back into Paradise City on March 16th 2018. If you’re an EA Access subscriber you’ll be able to get in on March 9th. However, it’s restricted to 10 hours of game time, but you’ll also get 10% off if you decide to purchase. The remaster boasts quite a few upgrades, especially for the folks with a PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Both of the upgraded console versions will be running at a beautiful 4k/60fps.
From the official EA site they have comparison pictures and some information on the changes which include:
- Includes 8 main DLC packs from the Yea of Paradise – With nearly 100 cars, 10 tracks, and loads of extra challenges and goodies, the included eight packs of DLC make Burnout Paradise Remastered the definitive Paradise City experience.
- The definitive Burnout Paradise experience – Relive the high-octane stunts and wanton destruction of one of the greatest arcade-driving games ever. Featuring a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity. It plays natively in 1080p on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and in 4K at 60fps on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.
- Explore Paradise City with friends – Burn rubber and shred metal across the open roads of Paradise City while discovering jumps, stunts, and shortcuts. Wreck your friends online or join forces to demolish hundreds of online challenges. Smash through traffic with up to 4 friends in both online and offline multiplayer and compete for destruction dominance.
- Full-throttle graphics – We’ve given Burnout Paradise a complete graphics overhaul, with high-resolution textures and a range of technical enhancements designed to deliver all the high-octane chaos with an almost irresponsible level of visual fidelity.
Business Wire has a nice quote from General Manager at Criterion Games, Matt Webster. “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”. I’d have to agree with Matt, the Burnout series has long been one of my favorite racing franchises. Look for Burnout Paradise Remastered on PS4 and Xbox Once March 16th 2018. Check out the trailer below!
