Burnout Paradise was originally released in January 2008 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and in February 2009 for PC. It was the fifth game in the Burnout Series. Burnout Paradise was developed by Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts.
In Burnout Paradise, players had the freedom of progressing at their own pace in an open-world environment. Races and other types of events were able to be started by just stopping at any traffic light and pressing the brake and gas at the same time. Features such as race routes, traffic, and including or excluding certain types of cars were customizable in the race settings. Some gameplay mechanics that were new to the series included gas stations and body repair shops. Driving through the gas station automatically refilled your boost meter and driving through the repair shop fixed your car damage. There were two types of damage that could happen from a crash which included one you can drive away from and one that totaled your car and made you wait for a respawn.
The remastered version of Burnout Paradise will include all the DLC content that was part of the old Burnout Paradise, except for the Time Savers Pack. This pack was a DLC that unlocked all the vehicles in the game that you earned from the single-player story without having to play it. The content that will be included is:
- Burnout Paradise Base Game
- Big Surf Island
- Party Pack
- Burnout Bikes
- Boost Special
- Legendary Cars
- Cagney Update
- Cops & Robbers Pack
Burnout Paradise Remastered will support up to 4k resolutions at 60fps on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X and the standard 1080p on the old PS4 and Xbox One. The game will retail for $39.99. Burnout Paradise Remastered will be released on March 16, 2018 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and a PC version will arrive sometime after.
