EA Extends Online Portion of Burnout Paradise Demo
Earlier this week, EA indicated that it would be switching multiplayer off as of February 1 "in order to enable the best possible experience for gamers who have purchased Burnout Paradise." The company then urged players to buy the full game.
An EA spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz that they have extended the deadline by two weeks, and will now be switching off the servers on February 15 instead.
"As you may know, Burnout Paradise is built to provide the ultimate in freedom and discovery online and offline. The demo did a terrific job of providing players a taste of that.
"Seeing how the social online multiplayer gameplay is such a huge part of Burnout Paradise, weve decided to keep the multiplayer demo functionality on for a bit longer," the spokesperson said.
