Burnout Paradise Coming to the PC with Mods
"REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Criterion Games, a studio of Electronic Arts, (NASDAQ:ERTS) today announced that the award-winning driving game Burnout™ Paradise is being rebuilt specifically for the PC. Burnout Paradise will be the first Burnout title ever made for the PC, customized with expanded multiplayer, enhanced online features, and community driven content."
Community driven content is a euphemism for mods.
Wow. I cant believe they finally made the decision to bring Burnout to the PC, and they are giving users the tools to create new content right out of the box. I have to say the potential for modding in this game is incredible. Dont like the vehicle physics? Change them to your taste. Dont like the way the city is layed out? Revamp it. Want tractor trailers and more cross traffic? Add it. Want to add a huge jump over the lake? Just mod it right in. The mind reels at the possibilities. Find racing a bit boring? Create your own new mode. Sneak attack air raid takedowns giving you trouble? Install an Air Raid alarm on your car and rear fired Anti-Bender Homing Missles. Perfect.
