Burnout Paradise Remastered will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 16, 2018, according to a press release from the game’s publisher.

A remastered version of Burnout Paradise has been floating about the rumor mill for the last few weeks. 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 listing has since been confirmed with a release date of March 16th by the same source.) We now know for certain that Burnout Paradise Remastered is very much a real thing and is making its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next month. Check out the Official Reveal Trailer to see just how it shapes up:

Burnout Paradise Remastered will include the following DLC:

  • Big Surf Island: Introduces an all-new district to Paradise City with fresh discoverables, events, online challenges, and nine new vehicles.
  • Cops and Robbers: Introduces new online game mode along with police variations for 33 of Paradise’s original vehicles.
  • Legendary Cars: Includes the Carson GT Nighthawk, Hunter Cavalry Bootlegger, Hunter Manhattan Spirit, and the Jansen 88 Special.
  • Burnout Bikes: Adds 7-10 hours of single-player and countless hours of multiplayer play. Includes four motorbikes: FV1100, FV1100-T1, Firehawk V4, and Firehawk GP Competition.
  • Burnout Paradise Toys: Includes toy versions of the following cars: Hunter Cavalry, Hunter Manhattan, Krieger WTR, Jansen P12, Hunter Takedown 4×4, Carson GT Concept, Hunter Citizen, Carson Inferno Van, and the Nakamura Firehawk GP Competition (Bike).
  • Burnout Paradise Party: Allows for a pass-the-controls group party in-game to complete challenges.
  • Burnout Paradise Boost: Includes two vehicles with unique boost abilities: the Carson Extreme Hotrod and Montgomery Hawker Mech.
  • Burnout Paradise Cagney: Includes two brand new vehicles and additional “community” vehicle finishes plus online game modes.

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. If you want to plop down your money right now, you’ll be able to pre-purchase Burnout Paradise Remastered for the PlayStation 4 & Xbox One via the game’s official website quite soon. (At the time of writing, the purchase links were not yet live on the PlayStation Store & Microsoft Store.) The price for Burnout Paradise Remastered will be £34.99 or $39.99 based on what Electionic Arts has compared in the UK and America respectively. EA Access members can get in on the game early on March 9th via the Play First Trial.
