Burnout Paradise Remastered, the remaster of Criterion Games’s beloved racing sandbox title Burnout Paradise, is releasing on March 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a later release on PC for Origin.
Electronic Arts announced that the remaster will support 4K resolution, 60 FPS, and include all previously released DLC.
Burnout Paradise was originally released over a decade ago, and the project is fondly remembered for helping to revitalise the racing genre. Rumours have flooded the media in the years following the game’s release about a possible sequel, but no confirmation came. The remaster will certainly breathe new life into the Burnout series and hints that Criterion Games are not finished with their beloved IP.
The game is another release that is following the remaster trend after the critical and financial success of remasters in recent years.
The trailer for Burnout Paradise Remastered is embedded below. Criterion Games most recently worked on the Need For Speed series and contributed work towards Star Wars: Battlefront II, but the question still remains as to whether this remaster is a sign of a future sequel or a swan song for the series.
