    Martok-
    Flagged for March release.

    Burnout Paradise, Criterion's excellent open world racer from 2008, looks set to make a triumphant return.

    Several reports have now pencilled in an HD re-release for launch in March, likely for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Last night, the reliable Gematsu reported on a Japanese retailer listing for "Burnout Paradise HD Remaster (title tentative)" on 16th March for 4104 yen (about £26).

    It follows a similar sighting in Brazil last month, when PS4 and Xbox One editions of the racer popped up with a 1st March launch date via a local retailer (as spotted by Gamepress.br).

    There's no word on what - if anything - will be updated for the new version, or if it will just be a straight port.



    Regardless, we're huge fans of Burnout Paradise and Criterion's series in general, which has been gone for far too long. Back in 2016 Christian Donlan revisited Paradise and deemed it "gaming perfection".

    And what better time for EA to bring Burnout back, as the publisher's rival racer series Need for Speed now feels deader than it has ever done before.

    We've asked EA for comment on the reports.

    Can't wait to play it again? Burnout Paradise is already available for Xbox One via backwards compatibility.

    This is a launch day title for me, whether they do a straight port or fiddle with it. Favourite racing game of all time.

    Total launch day title for me! Definitely my favorite driving series.
    I haven't pre ordered a game since Resident Evil 2 back in 98. Burnout will be my next one.

    I would imagine it was the first Platinum for many people as they implemented trophy support in a patch for this game as trophies became a thing shortly after it's release I think.

    My first platinum too, I had already 100% completed the game when trophy support was implemented and I didn't mind at all doing it all again.

    Yeah, think it was my first platinum as well. I remember restarting a new game save to get some trophies, so I think my profile has some trophies like drive though 5 billboards dated after something like drive through 20 billboards. Burnout is still up there as one of my favourite games ever, along with BFBC2.
