Burnout Paradise Gets a PS4 Remaster March 16

Welcome back to Paradise City! Revisit Criterion's legendary white-knuckle open-world racer next month.

Hello there, PlayStation fans!

As always, it’s great to be back here on the blog and today I’m incredibly excited to share with you the news that Burnout Paradise Remastered is coming to PlayStation 4 on March 16th. Did we mention it’ll be running in 4K at 60fps on PS4 Pro?

If you’ve played Burnout Paradise previously you’ll no doubt have fond memories of the first time you got behind the wheel of classic cars such as the Hunter Cavalry, Carson Fastback, Jansen X12 and the Montgomery Hawker.

Maybe you have a soft spot for the toy versions of the Hunter Manhattan, Krieger WTR, Carson GT Concept or the Carson Inferno van? Perhaps you enjoy cruising around Paradise City on two wheels as opposed to four.

Be honest now, how many of you owned the Jansen P12 Diamond?

Whatever your choice of vehicle, Paradise City allows you to tear it up in the ultimate driving playground. Race across hectic downtown avenues all the way up to the wild mountain roads and relive the high-octane stunts and wanton destruction that Burnout series has become synonymous with.

But what better way to play than with friends? Burn rubber and shred metal across the open roads of Paradise City while discovering jumps, stunts and shortcuts. Wreck your friends online and collect their mugshots or join forces to demolish hundreds of online challenges.

Break the rules and crash anywhere at any time. Tear up the rulebook and set speed and destruction records all over town. Send your car launching, spinning and barrel rolling through the city. Leave a trail of destruction in your rear-view mirror, wherever you go and whenever you want.

What’s in the box? I’m glad you asked!

  • Burnout Paradise Base Game
  • Big Surf Island
  • Party Pack
  • Burnout Bikes
  • Boost Special
  • Legendary Cars
  • Cagney Update
  • Toys
  • Cops & Robbers Pack

We’ll see you in Paradise City!

I have a feeling this is going to make a lot of people happy. Might have to give this a try as I never got around to playing it the PS3.

    I dearly LOOOOVED this game on the PS3 – but I played to to death, and might be a little (here it comes) burned out on it, now.

    And yes, I had the diamond P12.

    But…if the price is right, I just might have to go earn another diamond P12. The multiplayer on this was about the best I’ve ever seen – I’m not usually thrilled with multiplayer, but working together with some people to knock out whatever challenges someone still had was a blast.

    Looks to be 39.99.

    Hope the remaster is done well.

    Any chance PS3 saves could be used on PS4 as I am 102% complete.

    I love it, but I really don’t fancy doing it all again.

Price? Hopefully just $20. And other details? Is just a basic remaster, same assets but up-rezzed to 1080p (for base PS4 I assume) and 4K? Or have models and textures been remade for it?

    ynp7 said:

    February 20th, 10:27 am

    It’s $40.

    Matthew21799 said:

    I bit pricier than I anticipated but worth every penny.

Foxx said:

February 20th, 9:21 am

Curious about the cost + what type of work has been done under the hood. My favorite racing game of all time though! Wish we were hearing about a sequel but a remaster might tide me over for quite some time :)

Is there going to be a disc release or is it going to be digital exclusively?

    It’ll be available as both a digital and physical release.

“Be honest now, how many of you owned the Jansen P12 Diamond?”

Me, spent so much time trying to get it, especially due to those bike challenges. It was a pain to complete those because when I was doing them (2010), those lobbies would struggle to get the number of players you needed to launch the freeburn challenges you still needed to complete. Anyone trying to get it today is going to have a much harder time, the lobbies on the PS3 are pretty empty these day, unless it’s going to be included in the base game this time. Really hoping that’s the case, it’s such a beautiful car. It’s actually my most used car in the game.

BTW, I wonder if they left the color glitch in (for those that don’t know what I’m talking about, look it up, it was a fun glitch to make your cars look really cool).

Neolit said:

February 20th, 9:26 am

I don’t care if it’s upressed assets. This could as well be a straight port with no special pimping and I would still buy it for PS4. Yes! Day one if it is $40.

    See you on day one then. It’s $39.99.

    February 20th, 6:39 pm

    I agree, the original on PS3 is one of my only two Platinum trophies. Such a great game, just take my money already. And 4K 60fps, that’s gona be awesome on my PS4 Pro!

gor1llap1mp said:

February 20th, 9:28 am

Wow, could this be EAs very 1st remaster!? Its about time and probably just as noteworthy, the first racing game to get a remaster nest to Wipeout. Please, keep em coming! Now, what next EA? Do I hear SSX or is it Dead Space?

Bleh – Loved the Burnout franchise, but hated this game. I would pay $100 for a remaster of Burnout 3 though. Hell, even if it was only a “PS2 on PS4” game. GIVE US BURNOUT 3!

    blackiemist88 said:

    February 20th, 10:14 pm

    Yes thank you! It was the open world aspect that I didn’t like… would love it if they brought back the others remastered

    jmoose1975 said:

    February 20th, 10:25 pm

    I’m on the same page, 3 was my favorite and I would love to see a new ssx

    sekaniy said:

    February 21st, 7:22 am

    Amen!! After seeing high scores for this anticipation was high, ready for photo takedown, crash mode. Then was like this isn’t Burnout. Nice open world racing game but not Burnout. I even loved legends for PSP.
    Guess it’s a minority of us that want Burnout 3 style…

gor1llap1mp said:

February 20th, 9:30 am

Any SSX from PS2 would do such as the first, SSX Tricky and or SSX 3.

    Crunchewy said:

    February 20th, 11:20 am

    I would buy an SSX Tricky remaster in a heartbeat.

    MrJimmy71 said:

    February 20th, 3:02 pm

    Ohhh god yes remake TRICKY!

Stringer2355 said:

February 20th, 9:36 am

Great news, can BLACK be the next game remastered

jakete57 said:

February 20th, 9:48 am

Oh yes….been so waiting for this!!!!

renquess75 said:

February 20th, 9:58 am

About as original as Hollywood. Let’s just keep remaking old movies and while we’re at it let’s do another remaster if an old game… Now that’s an idea that will really wow people!

    jerk_man said:

    February 20th, 2:37 pm

    Stop complaining.

    Clearly this isn’t for you. Alot of other people are actually happy about this. Plus it’s not like there aren’t tons of other games coming out.

    EA if you are reading this, please bring the skate series to the ps4. Whether it is a ps4 remaster or a new entry, please do it.

Boltatsar said:

February 20th, 10:04 am

Yes!!!! HDR support??? (Please say yes).

Boltatsar said:

Would’ve preferred a remaster of Burnout 3 Takedown instead.

CColotti said:

February 20th, 10:22 am

Take….my…money. Loved this game on the PS3!

WackyMonster23 said:

February 20th, 10:23 am

I am shocked, for a secound it looked like a new Ridge Racer, but will be checking it out. Thx!

VertigeV said:

February 20th, 10:32 am

Oh man, this makes me happy… Burnout, where have you been

KwietStorm said:

February 20th, 10:33 am

Some of the most fun I’ve ever had gaming online. And for 40 bucks? Automatic.

Midnight17 said:

February 20th, 10:35 am

40 bucks? If there’s a physical release then I’m sold! But come on EA… I need a remastered/ upscaled PS3’s Hot Pursuit sooo bad! And add Bad Company 2 while you’re at it!

    Ben Walke said:

    Don’t worry, there is a physical version.

Any chance of some PSVR support getting thrown in down the road?

    Oh well. Still a day 1 purchase for me.

Xcaligamer1 said:

February 20th, 10:43 am

There’s only 1 thing I need to know. On ps3, when you crashed into another player, the ps3 cam used to snap a picture of you for the other player to see. Is this function included for the ps4 cam?

    I have to admit, I will miss this feature as I have fond memories of kids giving me double middle fingers as I demolished their rides!

johnnie54 said:

February 20th, 10:46 am

This is a great game. Played forever on my PS3. The best car game ever (My thought). Can’t wait for pre order. If you have never played this is a keeper or getter whatever.

SpyDudeFX said:

February 20th, 10:53 am

Are we getting the same trophy list or new ones? I hope some of the trophies are left behind.

FaCoffinDye said:

February 20th, 10:53 am

Is crash mode included again? Removing that took away what made the Burnout franchise unique in the first place. If it’s there , take my money! If not , I’ll pass. Now , if you ever release Takedown or Revenge I’m all over those.

    HitmanActual-SK said:

    February 20th, 1:36 pm

    Crash mode is on Burnout Paradise. You hit R3 and L3 at the same time to initiate crash mode.

Joshjames1234 said:

February 20th, 11:01 am

Great to hear there is PS4 Pro support! Any more details on the Pro enhancements (textures, shadows, etc)? Will supersampling be supported for 1080p screens?

Can’t wait to play!!

pezman said:

February 20th, 11:14 am

There’s nothing I want more than for this game to support racing wheels (Thrustmaster 300 Rs GT). For the love of God I want an arcade-style racing game with wheel support and VR support.

    FeistFan said:

    February 21st, 10:30 am

    That would be nice. I bought all the expansions once already for PS3, bought this on PC, too.

    I expect we’ll just have to wait for a sale if full price feels like too much. I’m torn, because even with the higher quality graphics, it just won’t be the same as discovering it all new, for the first time. Then again, dodging traffic and sliding around familiar old corners and hitting jumps just so….

    Will it remember our scores from the PS3? Like, our best times on roads to compare against our friends?

stb1rd said:

February 20th, 11:15 am

Fantastic news! But i wonder how it will run on my PS4 slim? 1080p@60fps?

Evil69 said:

February 20th, 11:16 am

I’m psyched for this but also a bit bummed that it has to be re-bought while I own it digitally on PS3. Not sure if the up rez is worth 40 more dollars. I wish they had an upgrade system implemented like lots of PC software does, with discounted versions for those who already own the previous version.

ggdude said:

February 20th, 11:18 am

OMG this is wonderful news!! I had a blast getting 100% of trophies on the PS3 one. I intend to do the same again. WOO!

K-Cube90 said:

February 20th, 11:19 am

Hopefully with this remaster, we can get a burnout takedown or revenge remaster :P

gohan16ken said:

February 20th, 11:20 am

Previously on IGN Unfiltered, Peter Moore said EA don’t remaster and re-release games. What changed? Is this EA first re-release?

Crunchewy said:

February 20th, 11:21 am

Will it have Supersampling if run on Pro on a 1080p set?

Fragaboom23 said:

February 20th, 11:21 am

This is great news, but they REALLY need to come out with a remaster compilation of all the other Burnout games as well. I have loved the series since it’s debut on XBOX and PS2? The hours of constant attempts to see how much damage you could rack up in a particular scenario and playing locally against your friends, to see who could do better. Good times!

ECS_Boss said:

February 20th, 11:23 am

Will we be able to use a steering wheel?

BlaqMagiq24 said:

February 20th, 12:01 pm

Good EA. Now that you’ve finally realized that remasters are important let’s see these remasters:

Mass Effect Trilogy (Want this the most)
Dead Space Trilogy
Fight Night Champion
Dragon Age 1+2
Need for Speed Underground 1+2
Need for Speed Most Wanted 2005
SSX PS2 series and 2012
Def Jam Vendetta and Fight for NY

    MATTKBAN said:

    February 20th, 12:12 pm

    Leave Dead Space 3 out of it. I’ve never been disappointed so badly before 8( broke my heart!

TheTobis said:

February 20th, 12:06 pm

How about Burnout Paradise 2? I want some new content.


February 20th, 12:10 pm

ooohhh baby finally the rumors are true! I’ll likely (eventually) get this game both disc and digital. I looooove B.Paradise! So fun and I met some of my best overseas friends from there which Ive now visited 4 times over the years. My 2nd family. Good times in 2008 ^_- Had everything completed before the trophy patch and backed up my saved, got the trophies, then put my old save back. This game was revolutionary when it came out. The near seamless online connecting to multiplayer and did anyone remember how you could export your save file to usb, bring it to the burnout website and view a map of everything you still needed to find and do? If you Google the Burnout Paradise map and see all the collectible icons, thats the map. Yours from your save file showed what you needed. Brilliant! Now I gotta contact some of these old friends and see if they will bite at this. 8)

Sign me up! I’ve been hoping for a new Burnout for the PS4 but this will do. One of my favorite games for the PS3.

YungShep said:

February 20th, 1:06 pm

this is one of the first ps3 games that allowed music. i bought it to jam, and the game was fun, too.

i have a pro…and a tv that outputs to 4k…where’s the HDR!!!! tuh…

Warped said:

February 20th, 1:12 pm

The real question is…..Will the Camera features still be in the game! I can’t believe something like that was in a game after taking down an enemy you send them a quick picture to them haha

Give us Burnout 3!!!!

Cross play with PS3 version? Might jump back in, if it has separate trophy list.

February 20th, 1:44 pm

Probably the game I had most fun when I had my PS3. I put in a few thousands of hours and did everything there was to do. I am so glad this game is finally making its way to PS4! And in 4K wow!!!! I am picking up this game day 1 and for $40 it is a steal. I would not mind purchasing this game at $59.99 plus the additional DLC cost. Going back to Paradise City

Fossil01 said:

February 20th, 2:00 pm

This is relatively unexpected. Hopefully they haven’t fixed all the glitches…
