Test drive Burnout Paradise

The demo for Burnout Paradise has hit both the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation store for those that want to try the game out. I had a lot of fun with the last two so I'm really anxious to see how this one plays out. The game even takes advantage of the cameras for both systems to grab mug shots. Up to three others can join in a game with you as well. The game hits stores January 22.


Welcome to Paradise! EA today released a fully explorable slice of the award-winning racing game, Burnout Paradise.  Available now at the PLAYSTATION®STORE and XBOX LIVE™ MARKETPLACE, the downloadable demo will allow players to experience a piece of Paradise City before the game hits retail stores in North America on January 22, 2008.

Discover jumps, billboards and smashable targets all over Motor City, Big Surf Beach and Ocean View in search of the fastest Burnout Route in the Hunter Cavalry car.  Also, attempt your shot at a race and check out the all-new Stunt Run mode. If you’re online, invite up to three friends into your game and connect with them instantly using the EasyDrive online system.  Once online, players can work cooperatively to complete three FreeBurn challenges or simply smash each other up and grab their Burnout Mugshots with the PLAYSTATION®Eye and Xbox LIVE™ Vision cameras.

The development team at Criterion pushes the boundaries to make each Burnout game stands on its own – reinventing the franchise with every iteration.  The Paradise experience is all about freedom and exploration.  The game has been designed to embrace speed, freedom, social online play and spectacular crashing, but now with all new modes, a completely open world and events at every intersection.

So make action your middle name and take to the streets of Paradise City.
