Burnout Paradise will return to PC and consoles in 2018, as previously rumored, with a new coat of paint and the same addictive gameplay fans fell in love with a decade ago. And the first round of negative headlines about Burnout Paradise Remastered have already been shot down by the studio bringing the open world racing game back to stores.

According to EA and Criterion, Burnout Paradise Remastered will include the base game and all eight post-launch additions: the Big Surf Island expansion, Boost Specials, Burnout Bikes, Burnout Paradise Toys, Burnout Paradise Party, the Cagney update, Cops and Robbers and Legendary Cars. The companies also managed to keep the game’s original soundtrack intact, so you can look forward to hearing Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” about 1000 times more than you ever needed to. Or you can just put “Paradise City” on repeat. Whatever works for you.

The upcoming remaster even weathered its first minor controversy in the hours after it was announced. Fans excited to pre-order the Xbox One version of BPR quickly were horrified to see “in-game game purchases optional” on the game’s Xbox Live listing. Turns out that bit was included by mistake. EA Global Community Engagement Manager Ben Walke clarified the matter on the Twitter, confirming one of the best games in EA’s enormous software catalog will remain free of microtransactions.

Burnout Paradise Remastered will even include support for Sony and Microsoft’s incremental hardware upgrades, including 4K support (at 60fps, no less) on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

For a sneak peek at the new and improved Burnout Paradise, take a few minutes to check out the trailer published this week. Then head down to the comments and let us know if you’re planning to revisit Paradise City when BPR hits consoles next month.

Burnout Paradise Remastered is in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game returns to consoles on March 16 and will make its Origin debut later this year.
