Burnout Paradise HD Remaster Seemingly Confirmed for PlayStation 4 in Japan

EA will be taking us back to Paradise City later this year if recent rumours regarding a HD re-release of the fan-favourite open-world racer Burnout Paradise prove to be true. IGN reports that a tentative title of ‘Burnout Paradise HD Remaster’ has surfaced online, and according to a Japanese game scheduling Wiki (Renka_schedule), the game will release for PlayStation 4 in Japan on March 16th for 4,104 yen, which is about $35 USD or £26.

Whilst a worldwide release has yet to be confirmed, Gematsu has pointed out listings for both PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Both are dated for March, and were first spotted in December.

It remains unclear how much work EA or Criterion Games has done with the remaster, given the short time period between announcement and release. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s most likely a port for Xbox One and PS4 with an increased HD resolution and maxed out visual settings from the PC version.

Burnout Paradise became playable on Xbox One in 2015 with the console’s Backwards Compatibility program. So, if you can’t wait until March, or you don’t fancy rebuying it, this is a good alternative. Once EA provides clarification on what exactly is happening with the Burnout Paradise re-release, we’ll be sure to update you with the details.
