60fps racing on a PS4? Is this the real life, or is this just fantasy? A bit of both, actually, as EA and Criterion have announced today that Burnout Paradise Remastered will be releasing on PS4 and other platforms this March 16th for $39.99.
It’s been something of an open secret for a while now since numerous listings went up with various retailers over the last few weeks, but now we’ve got solid confirmation that it’s real and it’s coming very, very soon.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will run at a full 60fps on PS4, while PS4 Pro owners will be able to take advantage of their console’s extra horsepower to play in 4K. Not bad for a remaster, right? Here’s what’s included:
- Burnout Paradise Base Game
- Big Surf Island
- Party Pack
- Burnout Bikes
- Boost Special
- Legendary Cars
- Cagney Update
- Cops & Robbers Pack
“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. “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.”
