Criterion Games, a studio of Electronic Arts, has surprised the world and announced Burnout Paradise Remastered, which will become available March 16, 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, inviting players to wreak havoc and unleash automotive anarchy once more. A Brazilian retailer had briefly listed the title in mid-December 2017, and the Japanese-centric Game Schedule Wiki (which tracks retail releases for the country) listed the title for the PlayStation 4 with a "tentative" release date. That's Cops and Robbers, Legendary Cars, Burnout Bikes, Burnout Paradise Toys, Burnout Paradise Party, Boost Specials, and Cagney, plus the Big Surf Island expansion, which brought the titular landmass to the core map.

The Xbox 360 version of Burnout Paradise is backward compatible on Xbox One.

The PC remaster was not given a release date, with EA simply saying it is coming soon.

PC Players will be able to get it on Origin later this year; this will be the first time the Big Surf Island DLC is available for PC fans of the game.

The game is confirmed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will run in 4K and 60FPS on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

Full details on all versions can be found on the official Burnout Paradise Remastered website. EA Access subscribers will be able to play for up to 10 hours starting a week early, on March 9.

"When people think of Criterion Games, they often remember the Burnout franchise and for good reason".
