Ladies and Gentleman, start your itty-bitty engines! Burnout Paradise: Big Surf Island DLC not only includes an all new, gigantic, stunt-loaded Island for you to explore, but some more cars to use, as well! A lot of us drooled over the Legendary Car Pack that was for sale to download at $8, with a boatload of shiny new cars for the game. Well, Big Surf Island gives us a miniaturized version of a few of those cars, in the Toy Legendary Car Pack that comes with your purchase of Big Surf Island at $13!
Paradise's gameplay is set in the fictional "Paradise City", an open world in which players can compete in several types of races. Players can also compete online, which includes additional game modes, such as "Cops and Robbers". Several free game updates introduce new features such as a time-of-day cycle and motorcycles. The game also features paid downloadable content in the form of new cars and the fictional "Big Surf Island".
Burnout Paradise has undergone significant changes since its initial release. These have been implemented through several free patches and downloadable packs. In 2008, the first major update, codenamed "Bogart", fixed several glitches and was scheduled to be released on 24 April. It was made available to Xbox 360 users on 18 April and to PlayStation 3 users on the originally scheduled date of 24 April, but this prevented store exclusive cars from being obtainable.
Burnout Paradise is the first game in the Burnout series to be released for the PC. Criterion made use of existing graphics technology and introduced enhanced visuals and the ability to play the game across multiple monitors to enhance widescreen playing. Players can link three 4:3 monitors to play in a Polyvision aspect ratio. PC users are also able to download a trial version of the game for free. It includes the entire map and three cars but will expire after thirty minutes. All saved data will be carried over if the user decides to purchase the full game. 2b1af7f3a8
