Games News - Burnout Paradise Remastered will not include microtransactions

EA clarifies misunderstanding and ensures that there will be no additional content




Yesterday, Electronic Arts officially announced Burnout Paradise Remastered , an HD port of the racing game that debuted on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2008. The game tab available in online stores showed that this version would include microtransactions, however, EA came out to clarify the situation.

Hours after his announcement, fans noticed that the Burnout Paradise game card included the phrase "optional in-game purchases." This generated uncertainty and harsh criticism, since the original title did not have microtransactions.

On the other hand, this remastered edition presents all the main DLCs, except Time Saver packages , so some assumed that EA would sell this content individually. The company noted that everything was a mistake, and that Burnout Paradise Remastered is exempt from microtransactions and DLC.

"Just a warning, but the store listing for Burnout Paradise that mentions 'in-game shopping optional' is a mistake," said Ben Walke, EA's community manager, on Twitter. "There are no microtransactions or any additional paid content."




Burnout Paradise Remastered includes the base game and 8 DLC packages launched in 2009: Cops and Robbers , Legendary Cars , Burnout Bikes , Burnout Paradise Toys , Burnout Paradise Party , Boost Specials , Cagney and Big Surf Island . Time Saver , meanwhile, is out of this package.

Get ready to return to Paradise City next March 16, date in which Burnout Paradise Remastered will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The PC version will debut later and at the moment there are no signs about a version for Nintendo Switch.
