Burnout Paradise Remastered is drifting by on March 16!

“OH, take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty…”

Good news everyone! EA and Criterion Games has come forth and announced that a remastered version of the great game Burnout Paradise that came out in 2008 which I loved playing…mostly by myself but hey it was fun nonetheless and for me is still one of the best street race games to this day.

In a tweet on the 20th of February Criterion Games showed an official reveal trailer for the Burnout Paradise Remaster game, which is shown to come out for both Xbox One and Playstation 4 on March 16, 2018. However, they did add shortly after that a PC version would be expected to come out later this year (hopefully, given that I wouldn’t mind if it got delayed).



Burnout Paradise Remastered will include the original base game and with eight add-on game packs that was released during the “Year of Paradise”, including the extension to the drivable world with Big Surf Island. The game will also feature various upgrades in terms of enhancement with graphics, greater visual fidelity, resolution all the way up to 4K! as well as supporting 60FPS (Frames Per Second) on the Playstation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

As an added bonus, it has been told that the games will support up to 8 in multiplayer, though not much else has been said, so I can only guess that we can be in a party up to 8 people that then can drive around against each other in races and sight-seeing.

You can watch the trailer here:

Nevertheless, do tell what you guys think of this. I know for one, that I’m excited to come back to the Paradise City (or island) and drive around by myself or with some friends to enjoy the scenery and do some crazy stunts in the streets.
Tell me down in the comments your thoughts and let us have a discussion about it.

Stay Cozy and have a nice day!

    Oh please let this one have no loot boxes, EA.

    • We can only hope, but the way the industry has shown itself to us. There’s a small chance it won’t be a game without microtransactions.

      But while loot boxes is frustrating, as long as they aren’t tied to how you can progress the game and overall exploration. Then it won’t be too much of a downfall.

        It would be a new low if they put them in a remastered game.

      • I agree, but if they see that a profit can be made from it then by damnation it will be implemented. No matter how much we stand against the oppression of microtransaction in the video game industry.

        They’re getting to a point though where all the bad press is impacting not only their sales but their brand image. Battlefront 2 not only got the bigwigs at Disney pissed but the government too, who are now looking into the legality of loot boxes.

      • Correct and this is where we stand as of today, when looking at the different games being developed and published, while the government is looking into the legality.
        Problem is, there are too many games in both the indie, double AA and triple AAA industry coming out to really go through them all. So now companies have to be more careful on how they want to approach this issue.

        I for one have seen both the good and bad about microtransactions, but the way that EA went about it was to the point of it being extortion towards its playerbase. The people that really wanted to enjoy their games and most of the time the games themselves are well made to be enjoyed, it’s just that many other parts are making it difficult to get on the level of being a positively game to talk about.

        So, as of now…all we can do is wait and see what will happen once the game releases next month.
