Burnout Paradise Remastered, an enhanced version of Criterion Games’ classic open-world racing game, will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 16th for $39.99.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will be getting the remastered treatment. EA has confirmed that the game will run in 1080p on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The revamped Burnout Paradise will also support 4K resolution on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X that will run at 60 fps.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will include almost all of the previously released downloadable content. The only exception is the Times Savers Pack, which was an add-on that unlocks every vehicle in the game. Paradise Remastered will also feature eight-player online multiplayer just as the original version did. Although the game is coming first to consoles, both digitally and at retail, EA said it will later release a Window PC version exclusive to its Origin store. EA Access subscribers will be able to play for up to 10 hours starting a week early, on March 9th. EA has also confirmed that there is nothing to announce in regards to a Switch port.
For those fearing this game will be plagued with microtransactions, fear not. Ben Walke has confirmed on Twitter that there are “no microtransactions or any additional paid for content”. Those who are afraid that Paradise’s soundtrack wouldn’t return, Walke has confirmed in a separate tweet that the full soundtrack will be returning as well.
Burnout Paradise was a standout when it released back in 2008, so it’s nice to see Burnout make a come back. Hopefully, successful sales will lead to a new game in the series future. If not, it can at least hold us over until some new Burnout-styled game comes along.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will be released on March 16th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
