Happy Friday everyone! What better way to get ready for the weekend than by giving you a heads up on a remastered open world racing game, which was a big hit a full ten years ago? That’s right! Burnout Paradise Remastered has been released today!
Sstarting off in the world of racing in the fictional Paradise City to the tune of Guns N’ Roses (nostalgic!), you start off with a nice bucket/beat up lemon car, then race yourself up the ranks, with several game modes such as single player campaign and Road Rage, you can race against other speed demons online, plus on top of that, you’ve got the ‘Cops and Robbers’ mode for some cat and mouse fun.
Racing games have become a bit of a sleepy prospect in recent years, so perhaps that’s why EA Games have remastered Burnout Paradise to get people back behind the wheel for some high-octane muscle car metal crunching carnage! Now whilst it’s an open world racing game, you cannot step out of the vehicle, which will be a welcome bonus for pure vehicle enthusiasts. Let’s see the remastered trailer, shall we?
If a game is made by EA Games, then you know it’s of the highest quality, so in bringing back Burnout Paradise a decade later means that the game still plays out with tons of high-speed fun, but with highly improved graphics. You upgrade your cars and racing licenses, however, the most interesting aspect of Burnout Paradise Remastered will be the ability to shift gears in online gameplay against other racers.
For the people obsessed with cars, or even motorbikes, you’ll be pleased to know that you can race them all. Even though the car and motorbike brands are not official or even real, if you look close enough at the designs, you’ll surely see which real brands some of the vehicles are actually based on, before you go off and enjoy your ride.
GameRiot were given the pleasure of testing out this new remastered game. What immediately hits you is the pace of this arcade style racing game, which is a welcome difference of other racing games such as F1 and the Gran Turismo series, where too much realism is taken into play, ultimately taking away from the fun velocity of racing games, as they should be.
Anyway, let’s check out a gameplay walkthrough of the opening 30 minutes by GameRiot, to get a better idea of just how fast this game goes.
Clearly, this is a fun game to play with friends, whether in turns at your house or against your online buddies, since you’ll definitely get your fill of racing alongside some classic rock music. Pedal to the metal!
Fans of the original game in 2008 will be glad to know that this 2018 version of Burnout Paradise will include all previous downloadable content (apart from the Time Savers Pack), and will also provide support for higher resolution displays at 4k and 60fps.
The original game garnered an 88% out of 100% by GameRankings, so with the new remastered version being out today, and if high-speed racing is really your thing, then surely you cannot miss out on this game. It’ll will make you kind of feel like a young Paul Walker in The Fast and The Furious, and that sounds good to us!
