Criterion’s fab open-world racer Burnout Paradise is getting fancied up for a re-release later this 12 months, Electronic Arts introduced at this time, ten years after its unique launch. Burnout Paradise Remastered, because it’s named, is prettified and whatnot, and can embrace a lot of the DLC – together with the Big Surf Island enlargement that skipped PC the primary time. Burnout Paradise is nice. This new is nice. Sadly our model is coming after the console launch, however I’m nonetheless properly up for this. Here, have a look at this announcement trailer:
Burnout Paradise Remastered “features a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity,” EA mentioned in at this time’s announcement, “including high resolution textures for players to explore Paradise City in 4K with supporting 60FPS on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.” So that’s absolutely all within the PC model too.
Looking at EA’s comparison screenshots, I don’t know if I dig how noisy and contrast-y a few of fancification is, however so it goes.
The re-release will embrace a lot of the sport’s DLC, with the eight paid and free updates from the ‘Year of Paradise’ season – minus the pay-to-unlock-everything Time Savers DLC. Hopefully they’ve launched Time Savers into the solar. The most necessary half is that sure, the large stunt playground space of Big Surf Island might be in Burnout Paradise on PC. Good. Great. Lovely.
Burnout Paradise is nice stuff. It throws gamers right into a sandbox metropolis constructed for racing, with races throughout in addition to modes like looking and smashing different gamers, stunt challenges, seize the flag, and extra. I had some nice instances larking about with my mates and might be glad to revisit. We’ve declared Paradise considered one of the best PC games and Hannah Dwan just lately wrote about the joys of idly cruising around the city, so there’s extra studying for you.
While the console launch is on March 16th, ours (by means of Origin) isn’t till an unspecified time “later this year”. Burnout Paradise Remastered will value £35 on consoles, and I assume the identical on PC.
