Criterion Games has announced a release date for the PC version of Burnout Paradise Remastered.
By the way, you can get it now on Origin Access or Origin Premier tiers of service on EA’s gaming platform. Access members can play it for up to ten hours, whereas Origin Premier account holders get unlimited access to the full version right now.
Console versions of the redone port were released back in March on Xbox One and PS4, and we new it was going to take a bit longer to polish off the PC version, because EA said so back then. Now we’ll just have to see if that extra wait was worth it.
Criterion did not announce any new features or PC-exclusive content. But what the devs did reveal is that the additional area, Big Surf Island will be included in this release. This is good news since the original PC release of the older version of Burnout Paradise didn’t include that additional content. Although owners of the older PC version will not be able to purchase the new area. They’ll have to upgrade to Burnout Paradise Remastered in order to gain access on PC. Those interested can find the full announcement tweet down below. The original announcement trailer is in there too.
Yep, Big Surf Island is on PC for the first time. It also includes all of the free updates, the Party Pack, the Legendary Cars, the Toy Cars, the Boost Specials, the Cops and Robbers Pack. And it’s all in 4K UHD, if your monitor can cope with such wonders.
