Mere hours after reporting that Burnout Paradise Remastered would be heading to the PS4 and Xbox One on March 16, publisher EA has confirmed the retail leak with an official statement including price and features.
Burnout Paradise Remastered includes the original base game and the eight add-on game packs released during the Year of Paradise, including the drivable world with Big Surf Island. In addition to this, there's support for 4K resolution and 60fps gameplay on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
“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,” said Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games in a prepared statement.
“Burnout Paradise is an open world arcade racer built to provide players the thrill of racing with their friends, in a free form way that’s both seamless and immersive. Featuring Criterion’s trademark speed and destruction with awesome stunts and spectacular crashes. With the release of this remaster, we’re able to share this action-packed ride and innovate online vehicle play with a whole new generation of players.”
EA states the game will be available on disc and digitally from March 16 for $39.99 (around Rs. 2,600). Unless of course you have EA Access for the Xbox One, in which case you can play the game from March 9. No India price for Burnout Paradise Remastered has been announced yet, but safe to say it should be around Rs. 2,750, which is what other $40 games cost in India like Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. A PC version is in the works which will bring Big Surf Island to the platform for the first time. It has no release date yet.
