Today, EA announced the official name and details for the upcoming next-gen Burnout installment: Burnout Paradise , for the PS3 and Xbox 360, scheduled to release some time this winter.
They may have erased the popular Crash mode in the last series title for the PS2 and PSP ( Dominator ), but crashes will be a major focal point in Paradise . According to the press release, this one will have "an unprecedented level of crash deformation allowing you to experience the most explosive pile-ups in the series’ history." On top of which, they're talking about an "open-world environment where youc an do anything, anywhere, anytime." How cool is that?
"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 of the 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."
