Burnout Paradise Remastered is just around the around the bend readying up to crash onto Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on March 16th. The title is the first remastered EA title for this generation of machines and one people have been anticipating with feverish enthusiasm.

Criterion Games are eager to invite players to wreak familiar havoc all over again, knowing just how much the Burnout series has been missed since the last title, the spin-off, Burnout Crash that released in 2011.

Players will return to Paradise City to once more tear it up in the ultimate driving playground, from the frantic downtown streets to the untamed mountain roads. Pull off incredible stunts and of course inflict massive car destruction. Oh yes, it’s so good to be back!

Burnout Paradise Remastered will include the original base game as well as all eight add-on game packs, including the extension to the drivable world of Big Surf Island. Burnout Paradise Remastered will also feature a wide range of technical upgrades and enhancements for the greater visual fidelity expected from this generation of consoles. Also, there is support for high-resolution textures meaning players can explore Paradise City in beautiful 4K with the game 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,” General Manager at Criterion Games, Matt Webster said, going on to add that, “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 be available both digitally and in stores for £34.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will be available later this year on EA’s Origin platform for PC and sees the Big Surf Island add-on brought to PC players for the very first time. EA Access members can play Burnout Paradise Remastered before its worldwide launch, starting on 9th March via the Play First Trial (subject to T&C’s)

Here’s the trailer to get you revved up, featuring ‘that’ song of course.
