          Burnout Paradise will be adding planes april 1st(formerly known as Burnout 5) by Criterion Games is the seventh game in the Burnout video game series. It was released in January 2008[1] for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and on February 5, 2009 on Microsoft Windows. It was also released on the PlayStation Store in September 2008.[4] It has an open world set in the fictional Paradise City, with few loading times and few traditional online lobbies or game menus. The song "Paradise City" by Guns N' Roses is the game's title music and also featured on the in-game soundtrack.


          According to Alex Ward, creative director of the game at developer Criterion Games, this game is a "complete reinvention" of the Burnout series.[5] He also said "To create truly next-generation gameplay, we needed to create a truly next-generation game, from the ground up". The game is set in an open-world environment, and still retains the 60 frames-per-second frame rate that most Burnout games have been able to utilize.[6] Initially day and night cycles were not included in the game but a software update entitled "Davis" added this element to the game. Records will now be kept on players' drivers licenses and there will be statistics such as fastest time and biggest crash for every street in the game. Unlike in previous Burnout games, Crash Mode, now called Showtime, can now be started at any time and place in the game; though Showtime mode is rather different from the usual Crash Mode.[7] Also, for races, players may now take any route to get to the destination. Races and other events are simply started by stopping at any of the 120 traffic lights around Paradise City and applying the accelerator and brake at the same time. Multiple settings have been confirmed to be fully customisable[8][9]such as:

          • "Boost Rules", where the player may choose cars that use the boost styles from previous Burnout games.
          • Whether or not there is traffic in an online event.
          • Start and finish points for online events with up to 16 checkpoints.

          The damage system has also been reworked. There are now two different types of crash based on the car's condition after the crash.[10] If the player's car manages to retain all four wheels, and not break its chassis, the player may drive out of the crash and continue playing; this is called a "driveaway". If a player's car loses any of its wheels, has the engine damaged too much from an impact, or winds up outside of the game's map, the car is in a "wrecked" state and the player will have to wait until their car is reset. Cars can also be torn into several pieces, be compressed and deform around objects as you crash into them. However, Alex Ward confirmed in the Official Crash FM podcast that cars may not be ripped in half, as concept pictures and early information had stated. There are also other cars which can be obtained by typing in a sponsor code. These only work for certain regions. One of these sponsor code cars is the Steel Wheels version of the Carson GT concept car, which features the car with an armor plate and supercharger. The code for this car could be obtained from pre-ordering the game from certain retailers. When starting the single player mode you are assigned with a learner's permit and a single car. While playing you race and win events to earn points towards a higher license, from a Learners Permit (E-class), D-class, C-class, B-class, A-class, Burnout Paradise (S-class), Burnout Elite (SS-class) up to Criterion Elite (SSS-class). After earning a new license every event that you complete is reset so you can replay the event again to earn credit towards a new license.

          Cars now have manufacturer and model names, which are loosely based on real-world cars but are mostly fictional (some of the cars are even based on those from a previous Burnout game, e.g. the Hunter Manhattan is the Classic from Burnout 2). Cars may not be "tuned up"[11] or customized apart from color changes, which may be done in real-time by driving through the forecourt of a blow shop, which will randomly assign a color to the car, or by selecting the color in the Junkyard where you select your vehicle (after taking the car through an Auto Repair drivethru at least once). Other real-time changes include driving through the forecourt of a gas station to automatically refill your Burnout meter, and driving through the forecourt of a repair shop to automatically repair your car, allowing you to extend a Road Rage or Marked Man event beyond the car's damage limits.[12]

          The online lobby system used by most video games has been replaced by a streamlined system known as "Easy Drive". While driving, players simply hit right on the D-Pad and the Easy Drive menu pops up on the bottom left hand corner of their screen. From there, players are able to invite another player from their friends list. Once friends have joined the game, the hosting player is then able to pick from a variety of events to play. There are also special Burnout Racing Team cars that you can get.

          Car types

          Cars in Burnout Paradise can have one of three types of "Boost Standard", showing what a player will have to do with the car in order to build up their boost bar; the three different classes of cars are Speed, Stunt, and Aggression.

          • Speed Class: Driving the car at high speeds through oncoming traffic and/or weaving through traffic (performing a "Near Miss" where the car avoids another by a few inches or less) builds up the boost bar for this class. This is the only type of boost in which the boost is not available until the meter is completely filled. When it is filled, the boost bar becomes inflamed and the player may use it until they crash, let off of the boost, or run out of boost power. However, the depletion of boost power on a Speed Boost can cause a "Burnout" if the player keeps the boost button pressed after their boost bar is depleted, after which the bar refills allowing the player to continue using their boost. As long as the boost is continued to be used and the car is continuing to be driven, the player can create a "Burnout Chain" for as long as the player is able. This is the only standard that allows a Burnout chain.
          • Stunt Class: The player can only accumulate boost with this class by performing stunts with the car (driving through oncoming traffic counts). However, as long as there is boost power stored, the player is able to use it. The Stunt boost is the longest boost bar initially.
          • Aggression Class: The player fills up the boost bar of this class of vehicles by reckless driving, such as performing traffic checks and/or takedowns, knocking over signs, performing stunts, and driving through oncoming traffic. Initially, the boost bar of these cars shows a "x2" at the end of the bar. If a player performs a takedown, the bar can be extended until the player switches cars (the only boost standard that has this ability), thereby showing a "x3" at the end of the bar instead. When an agression car crashes, the bar shrinks in size and can go as small as "x1". Like the Stunt standard, boost can be used immediately, regardless of if the player has the bar completely filled.

          Vehicles are rated on three different criteria when viewed at the Junkyard: Speed, Boost, and Strength. The Speed rating shows how fast a car can go. The higher the rating, the higher the top speed in which a car will be able to reach without using boost. The Boost rating displays the cars boost power. The higher this rating, the faster the car accelerates and reaches top speed in boost. The Strength rating shows how long a car can go before becoming completely totaled. The higher the rating, the more "health" the car has and the more likely the car will be able to survive a crash or be able to make another car crash instead of them (if a car is stronger than another, it is more likely that it will takedown the other in a collision). This rating also determines how many crashes a car can withstand in a Road Rage or Marked Man event if the car enters when it is in perfect condition.

          Event types

          Races, Marked Man events and Burning Routes can start in any location around Paradise City, but the destination is always one of eight: the Maplemount Country Club, the Coastguard HQ, the Waterfront Plaza, the Paradise Wildcats Baseball Stadium, the Fort Lawrence Naval Yard, the Lone Stallion Ranch, the Paradise City Wind Farm and the Crystal Summit Observatory. Road Rages and Stunt Runs have no set end destination.

          • Race: Races consist of the player and at least one other car (races with just one opponent are known as 'Duels'). The player is given a location to race to. The player can take any route through the city to the location, with the aid of a flashing road names at the top of the screen when the player is advised to turn. The first to arrive at the destination wins; there are no points or prizes awarded for placing second or third, unlike most racing games. Online races can also include checkpoints that need to be crossed before reaching the finish.
          • Road Rage: The player is given a target number of takedowns and a time limit. A Road Rage event is won by meeting or exceeding this target in the given time limit. A variant of this event was made available for online play in the "Cagney" update.
          • Marked Man: In this event, the player is given a destination. At least one opponent is trying to stop the player from reaching the destination by scoring takedowns against them. The player must survive from start to finish in order to win (the player can be part of collisions, but loses the event if he totals the car). A variant designed for online gameplay was included in the "Cagney" update.
          • Stunt Run: Players are given a target score. They must earn points towards that score by using boosts, jumps, drifts and other such stunt moves. An online version of this event type was added to the game as part of the "Cagney" update.
          • Burning Route: Each Burning Route requires the player to use a specific car. Once the player is driving the required car, they race against the clock to a specified location. When a Burning Route is won the player wins an upgraded version of the vehicle they completed it with. The upgraded vehicle can boast extra boost power, more base speed or a stronger body (but usually in exchange for another category being made weaker). This event is unique in that it does not reset when the player earns a new license, because it's tied to the car used to run it rather than the license level the player is presently at.

          After the "Burnout Bikes Update" (formerly called "Davis"), two new events were added that are exclusive to the motorcycles:

          • Burning Ride: Same as a Burning Route but for the motorcycles. However, some of these are now timed checkpoint events wherein the rider must ride through a set number of checkpoints before the time limit expires. These checkpoint events also do not have to end at one of the predetermined endpoints in Paradise City (they can terminate at intersections).
          • Midnight Ride: Same as a Burning Ride but takes place between the in-game hours of 8PM and 8AM.


          A "Mugshots" camera feature is available for the PC (using a webcam) PlayStation 3 (using the PlayStation Eye, the PlayStation 2 EyeToy, and other compatible webcams), and Xbox 360 (using the Xbox Live Vision).[13] When a player is taken down, they have their photo, called a 'Mugshot', taken and shown to the aggressor, and vice versa. These photos can then be saved to the PC or console's hard drive.[14] You receive "Mugshots" for taking down an opponent, an "Event Mugshot" for taking down an opponent during a "Ranked race" online, a "Smugshot" for beating an opponent's fastest Road Rule time, and "Photo Finish" for winning an Online race. Both versions allow cameraless persons, or those who do not wish to use their real face, to use their Gamerpicture/PSN avatar.


          A demo featuring a Hunter Cavalry, a Nakamura Ikusa GT[15] (only available in the Japanese version of the demo, but also available in the full game), a stunt run, a race, a time trial activity, 4 player online capability, and 9 online challenges (three each for 2, 3, and 4 players) was made available on December 13, 2007 for both PlayStation 3 via PlayStation Store and Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Marketplace.[16][17] On January 4 through January 14, Criterion raised the maximum number of players for the online Freeburn in the Paradise demo to 8 players (which has since returned to 4 players). With it, a total of 13 new Freeburn challenges were made available for players to attempt – 3 challenges in 5, 6 and 7 player sessions, and 4 new challenges for those playing in 8 player sessions.[18]


          On the 25 September 2008, Criterion announced that Burnout Paradise would be made available for download on the PlayStation Store. Upon installation and first execution, all updates would also be downloaded and installed, allowing the player to have the latest version of Burnout Paradise (version 1.7 at present). It has all normal PlayStation network downloadable content rules present (can only be installed on 5 registered systems etc).[19]

          Burnout Paradise was well received, earning (among other things) the Editor's Choice in GameSpot. Metacritic has the game calculated at 88 out of 100 for the Xbox 360 release[20] and 87 for the PS3[21]. Game Rankings calculated an 89% for the Xbox 360[22] and an 88% for the PS3 version[23]. PlayStation the Official Magazine gives it a 5/5 and comments that "It started on PS2 with a superb yet largely straightforward arcade racer".

          Despite the high marks, reviewers have suggested that veterans and newcomers to the game may find the large open world "daunting" at first. Just as of recently the Burnout team has added a restart option that is available by opening the Paradise online menu. "[24]. Nevertheless, on February 5th, 2009, Criterion introduced a free update which allows players the option to restart an event.

          Free expansions and patches

          Burnout Paradise has undergone significant changes since its initial release. These have been implemented through several free patches and downloadable packs.

          Codename: Bogart

          The first major update, codenamed 'Bogart', fixed several glitches and was scheduled to be released on April 24, 2008.[25] However, it was made available to Xbox 360 users on April 18, 2008 and to PlayStation 3 users on April 24, 2008.

          Codename: Cagney

          The "Cagney" update was released on schedule on July 10, 2008 for PlayStation 3 and on August 4, 2008 for the Xbox 360. The update introduces three new Freeburn multiplayer modes: Online Stunt Run, Marked Man and Road Rage. Online Stunt Run involves up to 8 players simultaneously competing for the highest stunt score within 2 minutes, however this mode can last for much longer, as long as a player is still chaining stunts the run will continue. Road Rage features two teams; One must race to a checkpoint, the blue team, and then to the finish line. Meanwhile the others, red team, try to stop them through takedowns. As long as one blue team member is active then the road rage can still be won for all blue team members. However, in road rage blue team members that have been taken down turn gray, these members can try to take down the red team in order to allow their surviving team mates win. Marked Man is like a game of tag, with one player as the Marked Man who cannot see the other players, has no boost and has a slower car. The Marked Man will get 1 point for survival and the other players 1 point each for taking him or her down. But the Marked Man also gets chaser points; these are awarded in the case that the Marked man fights back with a takedown, and the Marked Man is awarded with 2 points. In addition there are 70 all new online challenges. These new challenges are different from Free Burn challenges, they are Timed challenges. A Timed challenge will feature two parts; first part is usually all players gathering at a point of interest. The second part is usually timed and an objective must be met by all players, like jumping a ramp for instance. Custom soundtracks and 1080i support were added to the PlayStation 3 version.[26]

          Bikes Pack

          A screenshot of Burnout Paradise showing a motorbike at night.

          On April 23, 2008 it was announced that motorbikes and night-day cycles would appear in the Bikes Pack (formerly known as the "Davis" update), along with tailored locations, challenges and game modes.[27] Criterion Games announced on August 5, 2008 that the update would also feature a new dynamic weather system, two starter bikes in the player's junkyard, 70 new bike-only challenges, and special "Midnight Rides" challenges that appear only at night.[28] The Bikes pack was released on 18 September on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

          Trophies Pack

          On September 25, 2008 another update was made available which introduced support for the PlayStation 3 trophies system. Criterion Games originally stated that the trophies could be awarded retroactively to players who had already made certain achievements. However when the update was released they stated that this had proved to be impossible and that users would have to start a new game in order to achieve some of the goals[29].

          Burnout 1.6

          A screenshot of the in-game store showing DLC available for download.

          On February 5, 2009, Criterion released this free update. The update includes the addition of an in-game browser for the PC and PlayStation 3 versions, which will allow users to access the Criterion Games Network. An in-game store will be added to all versions allowing users to purchase DLC from within the game.[30]

          In addition to these interface changes, alterations have also been made to the gameplay including the "most substantial overhaul [to vehicle handling] since Burnout Paradise was first released".[30] Various tweaks have been applied to vehicle dynamics and challenges to make them better balanced and more accessible to new players. Visuals have also been modified to make certain goals and targets more vibrant and easier to spot.

          Despite earlier statements by developers that the game would not include a restart option (because it would mean introducing loading screens to the game), due to extremely high user demand, users are now able to quickly restart an event if they fail or quit it.[30]

          Premium Downloadable Content (DLC)

          In addition to the free updates, Criterion is releasing several optional, premium packs that add content like new cars, areas and modes.

          Party Pack

          The first update was announced as the "Burnout Party Pack" and launched on February 5, 2009 in North America and the United Kingdom respectively.[31] It focuses on single-console multiplayer gameplay, offering a Freeburn Challenge-like setting but for people playing on the same console, passing the controller around to complete challenges. The challenges are split into 'Speed', 'Stunt' and 'Skill' with up to 8 rounds and up to 8 players playing at once. In addition, Criterion announced "Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Box" that launched around the same time which contains the original game, plus the Cagney, Bikes and Party pack all in the same package as well as "a mountain of new refinements".[32]

          Legendary Cars

          On November 7, 2008 an announcement was made through the Crash TV podcast about a new pack called "Legendary Cars". The pack features four brand new cars available through the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live as paid for downloadable content.[33] This pack features four new cars unofficially based on well-known cars from television and film.[citation needed] The Jansen 88 Special, based on the DeLorean from the Back to the Future films, leaves flaming tire tracks along the ground and is also able to hover. The Hunter Manhattan Spirit is based on the Ecto-1 from the Ghostbusters films and features 2 sirens and lightbars on the roof. The Carson GT Nighthawk is based on KITT from the television series, Knight Rider and features the iconic strip of pulsating lights across the bonnet and the Hunter Cavalry Bootlegger is based on the The General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard television series and features a distinctive horn.[34] On February 17, 2009, Criterion games announced via their website that the Legendary Cars pack is to be released on February 19, 2009 on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, as well as on the PC at a later date. Each car needs to be bought through the in-game store or the Xbox Live Marketplace or the PlayStation Store before it can be accessed. The cars are also available to purchase in a bundle.[35] On February 23, 2009, Criterion announced via their website that specific PlayStation 3 Trophies could be earnt by using the Legendary Cars in certain ways.[36]

          Toy Cars

          On March 5, 2009, Criterion announced the release of this pack. It features a collection of new vehicles designed with a "toy car" aesthetic, although modelled as full-size cars. The Toy Cars pack has been released in three packs. The full pack offering all toy cars and also the Nakamura Firehawk; a toy motorcycle, the second offering the Hunter Cavalry, Hunter Manhattan, Krieger WTR and the Jansen P12, and the final one offering the Takedown 4x4, Inferno Van, GT Concept and Hunter Citizen.[37]

          Boost Specials

          On November 21, 2008 Criterion announced via their website the next item available for download in 2009 - the Carson Extreme Hotrod. The car was described as the fastest car in the game and has the benefit of 'locked' boost; this means it never runs out of boost. The article also stated that the vehicle dynamics system had been rewired so that the new car handles, boosts, and drifts more realistically than any other car in the game. The article mentioned that this car was the first to accommodate the re-imagined Burnout Boost system, this is shown off by the blue flames in the pictures of the car. The other car in the Boost Specials pack is the Montgomery Hawker Mech, and allows the player to willingly switch between the three different boost types at the touch of a button.[38] On March 12, 2009, the Boost Specials pack was released on the in-game store, the PlayStation Store, and the Xbox Live Marketplace. The cars were released separately or available to purchase as part of a pack. Unlike all the other packs so far, this pack had no set release date and was just released on the day the stores get updated. Usually Criterion's website posts a news story confirming the next pack and its release date, but that was not the case with the Boost Specials pack.[39]

          Big Surf Island

          Originally announced as the Eastwood pack coming in "Fall 2008"[40], the island expansion for Burnout Paradise has since grown considerably. On November 28, 2008, Criterion announced on their website[41] and in their video podcast[42] more details about the new island. Design for the island was guided by the principle of "If you can see it, you can drive it". The island puts emphasis on the playground aspect of Burnout. The developers mentioned that in their telemetry they noticed that players congregate in areas of Paradise City that lend themselves to stunt-driving, and so the idea was to create an entire island similar in gameplay to the Quarry, the Airfield, or Big Surf Beach. Further they stated that most of the material they had back in April, when the island was first announced, has since been discarded and the island has been rebuilt from scratch. As a result of this, the island grew beyond Criterion's original expectations until they felt that they could no longer offer the island free of charge, as originally planned. They confirmed that the island will be "premium content".

          Criterion will also release as premium DLC the previously announced "Dust Storm" buggy, a car tailor-made for stunts and "flying about the place". The official Burnout Paradise FAQ states that the Dust Storm comes with the Island.[43]

          Cops and Robbers

          On February 6, 2009, via the Criterion Games Network, Criterion announced the new pack to be released for the game. It's set to be released "soon after" other announced packs. At the moment details are being kept under wraps, but as the title suggests, the pack will cause the Paradise City Police Department to start to enforce the law on drivers in the city.[44]

          Criterion Games Network

          File:Criterion Games Network Home Page.png
          A screenshot of the front page of the Criterion Games Network.

          The Criterion Games Network is a free service which allows users to access a range of information including gameplay statistics for themselves and their friends. Initially only accessible from within the PlayStation 3 and PC versions of Burnout Paradise, the service was extended and made available from any web browser via the Criterion Games website to any user who has played the PS3, PC or Xbox 360 versions of the game. To access the web browser version, users must log-in with an EA account linked to an Xbox Live, Games for Windows Live or PlayStation Network ID. From the Criterion Games Network users can access news about the game and view information about themselves and their friends including gameplay statistics, online rank and which downloadable content packs have been installed.[45]

          Ultimate Box

          File:Ultimate Box Boxart.png
          The European boxart for the PC release of the game.

          The Burnout Paradise Ultimate Box is a re-release of the game that includes the original game plus all the new free updates and Party.

          The game contains:

          • The original Burnout Paradise
          • Codename: Bogart
          • Codename: Cagney
          • Bikes Pack
          • Trophies Pack (PS3 only)
          • Party Pack
          • Update Pack

          It was released on February 5, 2009 in North America and Europe. The game was originally set to be released only on the PS3 and PC, but it is also available on the Xbox 360, albeit only in PAL regions. The Ultimate Box is only available in North America on the PC.

          PC release

          Burnout Paradise is the first game in the Burnout series to be released for the PC. Criterion are making use of high-end graphics cards and have introduced enhanced visuals and the ability to play the game across multiple monitors to enhance widescreen playing. PC users are also able to download a trial version of the game for free. It includes the whole game but will expire after a limited time. All saved data will be carried over if the user decides to purchase the full game.[46]

          In-game advertising

          Burnout Paradise features in-game advertising for a number of brands. From October 6, 2008, in-game billboards featured ads for the then United States Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. Electronic Arts confirmed that the Obama campaign paid for the advertisements, marking the first time that a United States presidential candidate has bought in-game advertising.[47] The Obama campaign ran only on the Xbox 360 version of the game.
