Happy Cagney day to all PS3 owners

Criterion Games announces that its latest and most ambitious downloadable update for Burnout Paradise software is now live on Playstation 3.

To access the update, simply switch on your Playstation 3 with the Burnout Paradise disk in it and accept the update to 1.30 instruction.

This is the first major new content in the "Year of Paradise". The next major update, codenamed Davis, will be available around the end of August and will bring a Burnout first - motorcycles! Plus day / night gameplay, weather and much, much more.

360 XBox owners will have to wait another 14 days for the Cagney update as it did not pass the tests at Microsoft.


Cagney denied on the XBox 360!

Tonight Criterion Games announced that the Cagney update will be delayed for the XBOX 360.

When the update was going through the final test phase at Microsoft a few new bugs were discovered and the Cagney update will be delayed until these issues are resolved.  The projected release date for Cagney for the XBOX 360 is now the 24th July.

As far as we know the PS3 version of Cagney will not be affected by this delay and is still due for release on the 10th July.

Eastwood and then what?

The Eastwood update will include "the Island" which will extend Paradise City with new areas to play in. The island will be accessible via a bridge close to the parking garage at Angus Warf. The update will probably include new game play modes, new billboards, smashes, super jumps and challenges. When the island was first announced Criterion Games stated that the Island would be a free extension.
