Electronic Arts today shipped Burnout Paradise for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America. Burnout Paradise will be available in Europe for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on January 28.
Burnout Paradise takes a new direction for the franchise, with an open-world design that includes a seamless online and offline mode. Using the open-world model, players can decide for themselves when and where the action begins, simply by pulling up to any intersection and deciding whether to engage in that challenge or not.
Burnout Paradise lets players go online casually with the “EasyDrive Friends List” and just putter around town in Freeburn Mode. Then, if you’d like to take them on, players can immediately issue a challenge for up to seven of your friends or join forces to complete more than 300 online challenges.
Burnout Paradise has been rated E10+ by the ESRB and 3+ by PEGI.
