Burnout Paradise Remastered Microtransaction Listing Is A Mistake, Says EA

"Pitchforks down please."


Burnout Paradise Remastered will not, it seems, include microtransactions. After the PS4, Xbox One, and PC remaster was announced yesterday, some fans spotted that the game's PlayStation Store listing stated it would include optional "in-game purchases." The message is still present on the store listing, but EA says the note is a mistake.

"The store listing for Burnout Paradise that mentions 'in-game purchases optional' is an error," said EA's community engagement manager, Ben Walke. "There is no MTX or any additional paid for content. Pitchforks down please."

No Caption Provided

EA has received criticism from fans for its handling of microtransactions, primarily with regards to Star Wars Battlefront II. The company says the game was a "learning opportunity," however microtransactions are coming back to Battlefront II, having previously been temporarily removed.

The original Burnout Paradise received a number of DLC packs, and the eight main ones that launched during the Year of Paradise are included in the remaster. They are Big Surf Island, the Party Pack, Burnout Bikes, Boost Special, Legendary Cars, Cagney Update, Toys, and the Cops & Robbers Pack. All that will set you back US $40 / £35 / AU $48 on PS4 and Xbox One.

The remaster's release date has been set for March 16, with a PC version coming "later this year." The current-gen edition includes "high resolution textures" and 4K / 60 FPS support for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
