Nope, there are no microtransactions in the upcoming Burnout Paradise Remastered

Nope, there are no microtransactions in the upcoming Burnout Paradise Remastered

"This is a store listing error and should be fixed soon", they wrote.

EA has been quite keen to put microtransactions in their games for a while now, whether that be with FIFA's popular Ultimate Team mode or the hugely controversial Star Wars Battlefront II, which has caused some to worry that the newly-confirmed remaster of Burnout Paradise might have the same.

Global Community Engagement Manager at EA Ben Walke took to Twitter to allay all fears.




The firm announced that the 2008 open-world racing game would be re-released as Burnout Paradise Remastered earlier this week. "There is no MTX [micro-transactions] or any additional paid for content. Pitch forks down please", he tweeted. Activision's Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered showed us that some publishers will go the extra mile to profit even further from a decade-old game.

The Burnout Paradise Remaster will come out on March 16 for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.

Burnout Paradise is one of the most beloved auto racing, vehicle crashing and vehicle destructing games ever released and though it's starting to show its age a little, it still looks fantastic. This resolution will also not be limited to the upgraded console version but also to all the platforms, including PC, though the Xbox One and PS4 base versions will only run the game natively on 1,080p but will still have 60 frames per second (FPS) support, meaning it can be played a lot smoother than its previous generation counterpart. "Burnout Paradise is an arcade racer built to provide players the thrill of racing with their friends, in a free form way that was both seamless and immersive, but also a little insane with all the different stunts and crashes players could pull off".
