Burnout Goes to Paradise

At long last, Burnout 5 has been given an official title. Burnout Paradise, as it’s now called, is in development for the PS3 and Xbox 360 for a targeted release this winter. This latest Burnout will introduce Paradise City for the first time, an open-world environment where players can “do anything, anywhere, anytime!”.

“We have been working towards Burnout Paradise for quite some time. Next generation consoles have opened up a raft of new gameplay opportunities and the Criterion team has leapt at the chance to innovate and raise the bar to an all new high,” said Pete Hawley, Executive Producer, Burnout Paradise. “There are going to be some big surprises and a lot of new features but the core of the game is still pure Burnout. Instant accessibility will be reinforced by innovative online capabilities which will see Burnout Paradise smash racing conventions.’’

Info on the game beyond this is still scant, but along with the announcement EA and Criterion have released a trailer, a few screenshots and the official boxart, all of which can be found below.
