The heads of Electronic Arts decided to definitively close the servers of the original edition of Burnout Paradise: starting from 1 August 2019 it will no longer be possible to access the multiplayer modes and enjoy the online features of the iconic Criterion open-world racing arcade.
The Burnout Paradise Remastered servers, of course, will not be affected by this initiative and will continue to be active. As for the version marketed in the now distant January of 2008 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, users who continue to whiz through the streets of Paradise City on these platforms (as well as on Xbox One, through the backward compatibility feature ) will be able to continue to do so in the company of their friends on the net until the first day of August.
The closure of the servers and the impossibility of having fun with the features on the network and the multiplayer modes of Burnout Paradise, in any case, will not preclude access to the main campaign and to the single-player activities linked to the free-roaming component.
Those who love this particular type of arcade racing experience will be happy to know that the former developers of Criterion gathered in the new Three Fields Entertainment studios have recently launched their new Burnout-inspired driving game on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. acrobatic Dangerous Driving.
