Today, Criterion Games announced that Burnout Paradise Remastered should launch on March 16, 2018 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. According to the studio, 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. The goal is to pull off insane stunts and create crazy car destruction in one of the best arcade games ever made.
Burnout Paradise Remastered includes the original game and eight add-ons. The title also features a range of technical enhancements for greater visual quality such as high-resolution textures in 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro.
Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games, issued the following statement alongside news of Burnout Paradise Remastered.
When people think of Criterion Games, they often remember the Burnout franchise and for good reason. What we created ten years ago, we feel is still fun and unique to this day in the gaming industry. Burnout Paradise is an arcade racer built to provide players the thrill of racing with their friends, in a free form way that was both seamless and immersive, but also a little crazy with all the different stunts and crashes players could pull off. With the release of this remaster, we're able to share this action-packed ride with a whole new generation of players.
The game is currently up for preorder on the Microsoft Store for $39.99. EA Access members receive an additional discount and can play it early on March 9. Hopefully the title will hold up well after all these years.
