EA Announces Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box

Criterion Games, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) studio announced today Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box – a special edition release that includes the award-winning Burnout Paradise game plus the previously-released Burnout Paradise Cagney and Burnout Paradise Bikes content updates, and the brand new Burnout Paradise Party content. Burnout Paradise Party is an offline multiplayer mode designed to allow up to eight friends to "pass-the-pad" in dozens of Burnoutchallenges. For players that already own Burnout Paradise, Burnout Paradise Party will be sold separately as downloadable content. 

Burnout Paradise Party brings the social fun of Burnout Paradise into an offline environment where friends can pass the pad to play competitively. There are dozens of quick-fire, turn-based challenges where players compete in different stunt, speed and skill events. In addition to Burnout Paradise Party, Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box will include a host of new features including a restart option added for racing, easier control of the early vehicles, and for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system the new Burnout Paradise Network. Burnout Paradise Network is another Burnout Paradise social innovation that enables players to keep track of friends and keep up with all the latest Burnout news from either inside or outside the game. 

"Whether you’re an experienced player or a gaming novice, Burnout Paradise is a game that anyone can enjoy," says Pete Lake, Senior Producer at Criterion Games. "With The Ultimate Box, we aimed to deliver the most fun, high quality and high value experience possible to players both online and in the living room." 

Burnout Paradise Party will be on display and available for free play at EA’s booth during the London Games Festival in Trafalgar Square from Oct 31 - Nov 1, 2008. 

Developed at Criterion Games in Guildford, England, Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box is rated E10+ by the ESRB and 7+ for PEGI.
