Burnout Paradise To Get Great Demo

Monday, December 8th, 2008


Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box will be arriving on the PC in February 2009 and will be coming with an amazing demo. The whole game will be playable in a trial period, while the extent of the trial period has not been confirmed yet, it is most certainly a great way to get people to check out the game. This sentence from the Criterion news post really strikes a cord with me;

When the full game’s released in Feb ’09, we want all our PC players to be sure it runs perfectly on their system, before they commit to buying it. We also love the game and feel confident that if you try it, you’ll want to sign up for more!

Moreover, this will not just be a single-player demo, it will include the multiplayer component of the game, Freeburn which will let you compete in challenges with up to 8-players in all. Finally the demo will come with the Burnout Store, which along with a whole load of wonderful stuff will allow you to easily upgrade to the full game.
