We’re going back to Paradise City
Burnout Paradise a fantastic and fun racing game that released way back in 2008. Paradise was one of my favourite racing games of the last generation alongside Project Gotham Racing 3 and 4 and Forza Horizon.
Now it’s time to return to Paradise City once again as last week, EA announced that Burnout Paradise would be getting remastered. Burnout Paradise Remastered will have updated visuals and will include all the DLC that was released for it.
I never got the DLC for Burnout Paradise when it came out, so this remastered version that includes all the DLC appeals to me.
I know that some people are tired with remasters, I can completely understand but I think Burnout Paradise Remastered is a good idea. Fans of the Burnout series (including myself) have been very vocal about wanting a new entry in the chaotic fun racing series for several years now and yet to receive another Burnout game. I know that we had Burnout Crash back in 2011 but it didn’t play like the Burnout we know and love, which only made the desire for another game even stronger.
The reason why I think that Burnout Paradise Remastered is a good idea, is because I think EA are testing the waters. If Burnout Paradise Remastered sells well then EA might bring back the Burnout series which I, along with many others hope will happen.
Another reason why this is a good idea is because if this sells well, maybe EA will remaster some of their other titles for the current generation of consoles (e.g. Skate and Dead Space).
Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the cars are pretty.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will release on PS4 and Xbox One on March 16. A PC version will arrive at a later date.
