Burnout Paradise Remastered officially landing in March

(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.

The remaster is set to retail for £34.99 across PS4 and Xbox One. It also comes complete with the standard graphical updates, improvements to resolution and support for 4K and 60fps for Xbox One X and PS4 Pro owners. Unlike the Burnout Paradise: Ultimate Box which is now on Steam, however, the new PC remaster will include the previously console-only Big Surf Island expansion. The game will be available later this year on EA Origin on PC as players will be able to experience the Big Surf Island add-on for the first time.

Burnout Paradise Remastered will also be available to EA Access members from March 9, allowing them to play the game for ten hours before the full release.

Originally released in January 2008, Burnout Paradise gained critical acclaim for its open-world take on the popular series.

A remastered version of Burnout Paradise has been floating about the rumor mill for the last few weeks. Burnout Paradise Remastered is being developed by Criterion in collaboration with Guildford, U.K. -based Stellar Entertainment Software. Today's confirmation comes just after the most recent suggested leak, which appeared on Reddit.

The Xbox 360 version of Burnout Paradise is backward compatible on Xbox One.
