A legendary game that is ten years old is getting an overhaul. EA has announced that Burnout Paradise Remastered will be arriving on March 16. The game will include all eight DLC packs the original offered. Pre-orders are available now. The game will run at a 4K resolution and at 60 FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. It will include high resolution textures and a greater visual fidelity. Retailing for $39.99, EA Access members will get access starting March 9.
“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.”
The Burnout franchise has been missing from EA’s repertoire for nearly ten years. This could also be a way to test the market to see if a brand new Burnout would be worth investing in. For the amount of content and the overall experience that Burnout Paradise has to offer, $39.99 is a steal especially since the graphics will be upgraded thanks to modern day technology. The game will be available later this year on EA Origin on PC as players will be able to experience the Big Surf Island add-on for the first time.
