EA announced today that it will be bringing Burnout Paradise Remastered to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next month on March 16. The "smash" hit of 2008 will be getting a graphical overhaul to display at 1080p on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will run in 4k at 60 FPS on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. It will also include all DLC that was released for the game during its initial run, so you'll be able to tear up the streets in your "Back to the Future" Delorian.
One thing to note in all this is that the player count seems to have dropped from 8 to 4. On the game's website, there's this little note about halfway down:
It's interesting that while they updated all the graphics, they ended up decreasing the number of players supported in the game's online modes. Possibly this was done to maintain that 60 FPS fidelity. It's also worth noting that there's mention of being able to play "offline," though it's not clear whether that means couch co-op or LAN play. We'll update the story and our DB page once we learn/hear more.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will be available on March 16 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No mention of a PC version at this time.
