Well, take me down to Paradise City!
A small, but very nice surprise to know that it won’t be long before we get given the chance to race, jump and smash our way across Paradise City in the ultimate car prang adventure – again.
Personally, I will always be a bigger fan of Burnout 2, and then Burnout 3: Takedown, but Paradise City stacks up above the competition and that includes a good chunk of its EA stablemates in the NFS franchise.
Either way, March 16th is just around the corner and who wouldn’t want to cruise under those HD blue skies?
Press release after the break…
SYDNEY, Australia – February 21, 2018 – Criterion Games, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc.

Players will be transported back into the world of Paradise City to tear it up in the ultimate driving playground, from hectic downtown avenues to the wild mountain roads. Pull off high-octane stunts and create insane car destruction in one of the greatest arcade-driving games ever created.
Burnout Paradise Remastered includes the original base game and the eight add-on game packs released during the Year of Paradise*, including the extension to the drivable world with Big Surf Island.

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.”
Burnout Paradise Remastered is rated M and is available digitally and in stores on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
