Burnout Paradise Update: Can You Attain Diamond Status?
Although LittleBigPlanet may be close in terms of available extra Store content, we still say that Burnout Paradise is the king of bonus DLC.
Now, you may already know that the Big Surf Island Pack gives you 9 new cars...but you probably didn't know how to obtain the ninth car. Well, it's the Diamond P12 - pictured here - and Criterion explains how to get it: the Gold and even Platinum levels are for chumps; only the truly elite can attain "Diamond" status. You must complete all 500 of the online Freeburn Challenges, and that means you have to finish all challenges in the original game, all the new Timed and Freeburn challenges in the Cagney and Bikes Packs, plus the 10 new Freeburn challenges that come with Big Surf Island. Obviously, this is going to take some serious time and dedication, but we figure if you've been following along with all these updates, you're willing to give it a try. How long will it take to complete all 500...? Well, that depends on your driving skill and whether or not you have a very high threshold for annoyance; patience is gonna be key. And you know, it seems as if Criterion is never going to stop adding on to Burnout Paradise. Why even bother with a sequel at this point? Heck, the game is so huge now, it has almost become its own sequel!
So do you have what it takes to nab this Diamond P12? Or are you just gonna flake out like a n00b? Sorry...had to say it.
