If you think you've found everything Burnout Paradise has to offer, then prepare to re-discover what Paradise is truly about with this host of downloadable packs coming to PlayStation Network.
Electronic Arts' racing title Burnout Paradise is picking up the pace on PlayStation Network with a garage full of downloads for you to strap in to your PlayStation 3.
Hitting the finish line first in February 2009 are the Party
and Ultimate Bundle
packs. The Party pack lets you compete in a multiplayer party game for up to eight players and showcase your skills across multiple challenges, featuring all your favourite Burnout cars and locations.
The Ultimate Bundle offers great value for those wanting to dip into the wonderful world of Burnout Paradise for the first time, with the inclusion of the full game, the Party pack and more including the Cagney pack which is loaded with new online based features and an update boasting motorcycles.
Following later in the same month will be the Time Savers
pack and Legendary Cars
pack. The Time Savers pack is ideal for players who want all the cars and bikes of Burnout Paradise without having to complete the game. This pack will immediately unlock all the vehicles that you can get for free ordinarily by playing Burnout Paradise all the way to completion - although you'll still need to win the events to earn your Burnout Licenses. Now there's no excuse for not getting online and mixing it with all the other members of the Burnout Paradise community.
The Legendary Cars pack takes four legendary cars and puts you in the driver's seat to race in the game, with a choice of Jansen 88 Special (which is an homage to the famous Back to the Future car, complete with hover capabilities), Hunter Cavalry Bootlegger (a Dukes of Hazzard nod, with appropriate horn), Hunter Manhattan Spirit (a tip of the hat towards Ghostbusters' Ecto 1 vehicle) and the Carson GT Firehawk (which takes its inspiration from K.I.T.T., the lead car of TV series Knight Rider).
In March 2009, the Toy Cars
pack and Boost Specials
pack will be released. Toy Cars brings nine classic Burnout Paradise vehicles to the city with an outrageous toy twist. These crazy vehicles let you see some of your favourite Burnout Paradise Cars and Bikes as you've never imagined them - the perfect way to mix up an online session. The Burnout Paradise Boost Specials pack will be launched, boasting two ultra-performance boosting machines into Paradise City to burn it up with.
Finally, May 2009 will see the launch of Big Surf Island
, which will be the biggest downloadable pack for Burnout Paradise yet, bringing a vast offshore island to the game, filled with more stunts, jumps and exciting opportunities for gameplay per square foot than anywhere else in Paradise City.
Expect more details on all these exciting downloads soon and a few surprises down the line, so keep that pedal warm and ready for some very special Burnout Paradise packs - and don't forget to visit the official site
