Well, would you look at that. Shortly after the leak comes an official confirmation, alongside a trailer.
Check out EA’s confirmation below:
Burnout Paradise Remastered includes the original base game and the eight add-on game packs released during the Year of Paradise*, including the extension to the drivable world with Big Surf Island. Burnout Paradise Remastered also features a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity, including high resolution textures for players to explore Paradise City in 4K with supporting 60FPS on the PlayStation 4 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, we feel is still fun and unique to this day in the gaming industry,” said Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games. “Burnout Paradise is an arcade racer built to provide players the thrill of racing with their friends, in a free form way that was both seamless and immersive, but also a little crazy with all the different stunts and crashes players could pull off. With the release of this remaster, we’re able to share this action-packed ride with a whole new generation of players.”
Burnout Paradise Remastered will hit Xbox One and PS4 on March 16th, priced at £34.99. It will land on PC, through Origin, later in 2018. EA Access members can dive in on March 9th with the First Play Trial for 10 hours of unrestricted gameplay.
Now can we have an SSX Tricky remaster? Pleeeeeeeease.
Burnout offered a perfect blend of slick racing and spectacular car crashes, so when I heard the rumour that Burnout Paradise (arguably the best entry in the series) was headed to PS4 in March, I began to get excited. Very excited.
Now a mysterious post on reddit has seemingly confirmed a March 16th release for a remastered version of the game. At the time of writing none of this can be confirmed, however if it is true you can probably expect official confirmation from EA within the next two weeks.
What do you think, is this ‘leaked’ poster confirmation or a fabricated lie by an overly enthusiastic fan base?
