Burnout Paradise, the legendary stunt racer, is celebrating ten years on the carnage-riddled streets, having released back in 2008. The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC game looks set to be making a rip-roaring return in the form of a remaster on modern consoles, which is set to arrive next month according to reports.
There has yet to be an official announcement, though retail listings for the HD version have been spotted in regions such as the UK, Japan and Brazil. This will mark 10 years since the release of the original, which arrived on January 22nd, 2008, and served as the fourth entry in the franchise. It was also a groundbreaking title for the series, having been the first to introduce an open-world model. This allowed players to roam around a North American city, participating in a number of activities such as races, crashing in style and all of the in between.
What’s more, the game also offered new multiplayer modes, with additional challenges, as well as motorbikes, day-night cycles and more for free. This was followed up by add-ons that offered an island expansion and premium car packs.
If we are to be left to wait for a new version, then at least we have backwards compatibility on Xbox One to relive the glorious title, which can also be found on Steam and Origin. Fingers crossed that the HD version will be announced soon.
