EA has announced a few days ago, that Burnout Paradise will be getting a remaster soon. The game will be an improved version of the original open-world racing title. Burnout Paradise Remastered is set to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 16 and will be priced at $39.99.
Previously released back in 2008 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the PC, the game became widely popular for its open world approach to the racing series. Paradise is the last entry in the main series, and the last game overall was a spinoff released onto the mobile platform back in 2010. The remastered version of the game is currently in development by Criterion together with Guildford.
The new and improved remaster of Burnout Paradise will support 4K resolution for both the PlayStation 4 Pro, and the Xbox One X. However, the game will not offer native 4K on all platforms. Furthermore, EA has revealed that the game will run in 1080p on the regular PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will also include all previously released DLCs with the exception of the Time Savers Pack, which unlocks every vehicle in the game. The remaster will be available in both physical and digital forms, and EA has revealed that a PC version will release at a later date and will be exclusive in the Origin store. Currently, there are no announcements for a Switch version of the remaster, or if the developer is even planning on releasing one in the future.
In addition, EA has confirmed that the remaster will include an eight-player online multiplayer mode, just as it did in the original version of the game. Subscribers to EA Access will be able to play the game in advance for 10 hours, starting on March 9.
