"We've given Burnout Paradise a complete graphics overhaul, with high-resolution textures and a range of technical enhancements created to deliver all the high-octane chaos with an nearly irresponsible level of visual fidelity", EA writes. There hasn't been a new Burnout, however, since the release of Burnout Paradise ten years ago in 2008. (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. This includes the extension to the drivable world with Big Surf Island. Although the remaster is coming first to consoles, both digitally and at retail, EA said it will later release a Windows PC version exclusively in its Origin store. In fact, we all suspected the reason the Xbox 360 version of Burnout Paradise was delisted in January was because the rumoured remaster was on its way. But Electronic Arts soon moved Criterion Games over to work on the Need for Speed franchise, putting Burnout on the back burner.

Burnout Paradise Remastered will bring the same destructive racing action you loved from the original (or found less inspiring compared to Burnout 3) to PS4, with lots of extras for this release.
