Electronic Arts and Criterion Games have announced Burnout Paradise Remastered for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will launch physically and digitally for consoles on March 16 for $39.99, and later this year for PC via Origin. EA Access embers will get to play Burnout Paradise Remastered ahead of launch on March 9 via the Play First Trial.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
Return to Paradise City
In 2008, the original Burnout Paradise™ came roaring off the starting line ready to demolish the competition. Featuring breakneck racing, high-flying stunts, and — most importantly — shameless amounts of automotive destruction, Burnout Paradise set the bar for what an action racing game could be. And now, ten years later, it’s back and ready to show a new generation of consoles the true definition of a “smash hit.”
The Definitive Burnout Paradise Experience
Relive the high-octane stunts and wanton destruction of one of the greatest arcade-driving games ever. Featuring a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, it plays natively in 1080p on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and in 4K at 60fps on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.
