U-Turn on Re-Starts!

A little while ago when the PC demo of Burnout Paradise was announced we saw that the PC version of BP has restarts, a feature that was not included in the console version..... until now! (or soon, the 5th of Feb to be exact)

Criterion Games have today announced that restarts are coming to consoles in a FREE update on the 5th of February.

"...this overhaul to the game includes the introduction of our all-new in-game website and awesome in-game store.  We've also worked on changes to game modes, visuals, the entire vehicle dynamics system.  Oh, and we've added a restart !"

The 5th of February also sees the release of the Party Pack swiftly followed by Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box on the 6th of February.

Big Surf Island - A Stunt Runner's Paradise!

For the first time since May 2008 Criterion Games has released new information, screens and video of Big Surf Island.

The Burnout Team has been watching you! They have taken telemetry from Burnout Paradise. They have seen that we play at the Airfield, Quarry, Dam and the Beach. Now, Big Surf Island will be our new playground. They have seen that we like big jumps, so the Island will have the biggest jumps in the game.

For the first time Criterion Games have shown us the other side of the Island. It has a tropical feel, with palm trees and dirt roads.
