Burnout Paradise Remastered is now available on EA Origin Access, and will be released publicly next week.
Remarkably, Burnout Paradise Remastered still holds up by modern standards, and despite the huge advances in online gaming over the past decade, many of the features it introduced are now mainstays of any connected open world game.
True, the open world of Paradise City doesn’t seem quite as large as it did in 2008, but the game remains an absolute time sink, and Burnout Paradise Remastered is well worth returning to, or playing for the first time.
EA has confirmed that the PC version of the game will be released on August 20, 2018 via EA Origin, but if you subscribe to either Origin Access or Origin Access Premier, you can play right now.
The remastered edition features improved lighting and textures, plus full 4K support. Here are the PC system specs you’ll need.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
