Criterion To Offer New Party Content For Burnout Paradise
We've already seen several major content updates for Burnout Paradise in 2008, and Criterion Games even brought the full, critically acclaimed racing experience to the PlayStation Store for half the original retail price. But they're not done yet; they're already looking forward to next year.
Criterion has a new update over at their official site, letting us in on their impending new Paradise content. The first pack is called "Burnout Paradise Party," which is geared towards the offline multiplayer aspect of the game. You and 7 other players can gather around the TV and get crankin' on three brand new challenges: Stunt, Speed and Skill. Stunt is exactly what it sounds like, speed focuses on quick time trials and other timed challenges, while Skill requires you to race through oncoming traffic at maximum speed. They're also going to pour on some extra Trophies/Achievements, so there's no reason not to pick up the new Party pack when it becomes available. Criterion says it'll drop some time in February, and that's not too far off.
This is one of those times when a developer really wants to keep pushing the longevity of a particular game. Burnout Paradise is a fantastic arcade racing experience, and if Criterion has their way, you're gonna keep enjoying it for many months to come.
