An HD remaster of the game first leaked in December thanks to a listing from a Brazilian retailer. The release date of March 16 that was listed along with the game also appears to have been correct.

According to EA, this remaster includes all DLC from the Year of Paradise, including the Big Surf Island update. Burnout Paradise Remastered will be 60FPS and will support 4K resolution on Xbox One X. HDR support, however, was not revealed.

Burnout Paradise originally released nearly 10 years ago for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It was the last main game in the series to be developed by Criterion Games. Instead of indivual racing tracks that were a cornerstone of previous entries in the franchise, Paradise featured an open-world.

The Xbox 360 version of Burnout Paradise is backward compatible on Xbox One. EA Access members can start racing early on March 9 with the Play First Trial for 10 hours of unrestricted gameplay.

The PC remaster was not given a release date, with EA simply saying it is coming soon.
