“When people think of Criterion Games, they often remember the Burnout franchise and for good reason. What we created 10 years ago, is as fun and unique today as it was back then,” said Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games. “Burnout Paradise is an open world arcade racer built to provide players the thrill of racing with their friends, in a free form way that’s both seamless and immersive. Featuring Criterion’s trademark speed and destruction with awesome stunts and spectacular crashes. With the release of this remaster, we’re able to share this action-packed ride and innovate online vehicle play with a whole new generation of players.”

Both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will support 1080p, no word on the framerate.

I played the heck out of Burnout Paradise back on the Xbox 360 and PC. This is easily one of my favorite racing games of all time. So I’m glad to see that it is finally officially announced. I’ll definitely be picking this up, though I’m not sure if it will be on the PS4, Xbox One, or if I’ll hold out for the PC version.
