One of the most realistic racing games for the PlayStation 3, Criterion's Burnout Paradise
, will be available for download from the US PlayStation Store for $29.99 this fall. Even better is the fact that the downloadable version will also include all the recent updates delivered until now: and seeing as how this game won no less than 55 awards worldwide, it's a real treat.
The game offers endless hours of intense driving, in an open-world environment that can be experienced both in single and multiplayer online together with friends, and that's not everything! The developers have released, earlier this year, a promotional feature, called The Year of Paradise: a year-long program where regular downloadable content packs will be released in order to change the game experience. The first pack has just been released and it is available now via PSN and XBLM, for free. It brings three new game modes, new cars
and 70 new multi-part challenges, extending the game with hours of new gameplay.
Also, the downloadable pack introduces a live news page where players can track their progress or find out interesting stuff about upcoming multiplayer events. More similar packs are planned for release later this year, including the addition of trophies for the PS3 version which is definitely a feature that will impress many fans of the game.
Fiona Sperry, Studio Manager for Criterion Games said, "Our mission at Criterion is to provide the most entertaining gaming service possible. In order to do that, it's key that we have the ability to deliver content to players in ways that work for them - through quick and easy download or via traditional bricks and mortar. For us, the fun is in playing the game with friends and constantly discovering new surprises in the world. Download packs with meaningful new gameplay are the perfect way for us to keep entertaining fans and keep them playing, even months after launch."
