It’s been about 10 years now since we saw the roll-out of Burnout Paradise, Criterion‘s brainchild born to entertain gamers with a passion for open-world racing. EA has recently announced that it will be releasing a newly remastered variant of the now classic game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The game is expected to consist of all of Burnout Paradise’s add-on content on top of technical tweaks such as enriched visuals. It is now reported to support 4K gameplay on the premium consoles, Xbox One X and PS4 Pro.
Launched back in January 2008, Paradise acted as a big contender representing the Burnout series, considered as a game which was ahead of its time thanks to its open-world ability – which was something that not every racing game offered back then – complemented by the fact that it still followed its tradition of crashes and stunts from its predecessors.
The bad news is that this remastered version could, by the looks of it, be the final record of the Burnout series. We’re talking a decade later since it was first played on video games consoles, and there hasn’t even been a whisper about a new Burnout game. Criterion seems to have been concentrating on other things like EA’s Need For Speed line, and notably played its part in the development of EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II video game.
Focusing on the brighter side of things, you’ll be able to grab the remastered Burnout Paradise on March 16th. But to play the game on PC you’ll have to wait a little longer as EA plans to release later this year.
