Criterion Games set the gold standard for downloadable content following the release of its crash derby-meets-street racer Burnout Paradise in 2008. Following the game's release, the EA-owned British studio released a string of high-quality add-ons, ranging from new game modes and challenges to cars and motorcycles a day-and-night cycle. Better yet, all of the add-ons released during the year were completely free.
Nearly three years after the game's launch, Criterion has confirmed that it has finished making DLC for the game. "Please stop asking us for Burnout Paradise DLC," the developer said this week through its Twitter feed. "There will be no more! Sorry everyone! But we did WAY more than everyone else…"
The last round of DLC to arrive for Burnout Paradise came in June 2009 with the release of Big Surf Island. Described by the team as "the culmination of everything we learned creating Paradise City," the add-on pack expanded the city with a new island full of obstacles and challenges. Unlike the 2008 offerings, though, Big Surf Island, along with more than a dozen other add-ons, carried a price tag.
However, those price tags will apparently soon be following. Criterion said today through its Twitter feed that it would soon be introducing new DLC bundle pricing soon. The studio plans to offer additional details next month.
