EA and Criterion officially unveiled Burnout Paradise Remastered for PS4 and other platforms today, much to the surprise of nobody. It had been leaked well ahead of time but it was still nice to finally get confirmation. We hate watching the rumour mill churn, and we hate reporting on it even more…
Still, all is well, then. Or maybe not? That depends on who you ask, really. For many players in the PS3-era, Burnout Paradise presented a problem when it came to trophies. To obtain all of the game’s trophies and secure yourself a Platinum gong (the height of cool,) you needed to have a PS3 camera. Not everybody could afford or get their hands on one. The good news, then, is that the PS4 remaster of Burnout Paradise won’t have such annoying trophy requirements.
EA’s Ben Walke has confirmed that there will be no camera support for Burnout Paradise Remastered, so you needn’t worry about not collecting all trophies due to a lack of equipment; you’re 10 years older now, so it’ll be the age that hampers you…
As for PSVR support… Well, we didn’t really expect it, did we? No, not really. Still, it would have been nice. However, Walke has also confirmed that there are “no current plans” for PSVR support. That’s not to say that it couldn’t happen in the future but… it’s not all that likely, really. It’s a $40/£35 game that’ll be released and forgotten about within a month. C’mon, let’s not pretend otherwise.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will release March 16th on PS4. You can get your pre-order here.
