The new version will contain not only the full base game but nearly all previously released DLC, with only one exclusion.
Matt Webster, General Manager Criterion Games said "When people think of Criterion Games, they often remember the Burnout franchise and for good reason". What we created 10 years ago, is as fun and unique today as it was back then. 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. Given EA's precious Need for Speed series has been on the wane for some years now, perhaps now is the right time to bring a fan-favourite back to life.
One of the franchise's most popular installments and its last, Burnout Paradise is the open-world marvel that absolutely blew up in the previous generation.
Burnout Paradise Remastered has finally been announced yesterday following a few weeks of rumors and speculation, and it seems like all the content released for the original version will be included in the remaster. Even if it's not immediately apparent, the game did get a slight facelift with improved textures and lighting as shown in comparison screenshots from the game's website.
Stellar Entertainment are handling the port, but who are they? EA Access subscribers can play up to ten hours of the game a week early, starting on March 9. It'll mark the first time the latter two were made officially available on PC, as the Big Surf Island expansion was only attainable through a complex mod despite only being exclusive to PS3 and 360 versions.
