There is so much done with this update that I am going to quote a lot from the criterion site.
We can’t resist improving Burnout Paradise.
In-Game Browser Site (PC and PS3-only)
The first change PS3 and PC-players will notice is that we’re now using an in-game browser to bring you something we’re calling the Criterion Games Network. More on this next week! (Players on all platforms can enjoy the rest of the features listed on this page.)
The next major addition is our in-game store. You’ll be able to easily buy new content, like the Party Pack, without leaving the comfort of Burnout Paradise. Just head for either the Main Menu or the Easydrive Menu. We’ll add the Legendary Cars, Boost Specials, Toy Cars, Island and more (!), as they become available.
The vehicle handling has undergone it’s most substantial overhaul since Burnout Paradise was first released. We’ve tweaked the handling on the first available cars, like the Hunter Cavalry, to make the game easier and more accessible.
These cars are now slower, harder to crash and less likely to spin out at low speeds. This’ll help any newcomers get into the game, but it also delivers greater variety between the early cars to the faster, more challenging later ones.
We’ve changed the way we display the performance of the cars in the junkyard. You can now easily compare cars and see that with the rebalanced handling, they’re more varied across the whole range. Again, we’re aiming for a more fun and accessible experience. And on the subject of the junkyard, you can now filter what you see there. Pick between cars or bikes and when our Legendary Cars, Toy Cars and Boost Specials arrive in the near future they’ll also be easier to pick out.
You ask – we deliver. Restart is in! You can now quit or fail an event and choose to restart it.
And last but not least, we’ve transformed the way barrel rolls work in Burnout Paradise. Hit a split-ramp and barrel rolls now automatically right themselves. It means new players can pull off flash moves immediately, but nothing changes for all you experts out there. You can still risk multiple rolls by steering into the roll.
To get this FREE update, just play take Burnout Paradise online anytime on or after 6th February.
This update does not include the Party Pack, which is our first ever paid-for content – a premium pack that turns Burnout Paradise into a fun party game for when you’ve got your friends round and you all want to play on the same TV. Party will also be available on 5th February.
