Burnout Paradise Remastered Won’t Have Microtransactions, Includes Original Soundtrack

Following the recent announcement for Burnout Paradise Remastered, fans were concerned the modern re-release of the classic racing game would have microtransactions – due to some store pages listing them as a feature. Now, Electronic Arts and Criterion Games have clarified the game has no microtransactions of any kind.

Ghost Games’s Ben Walke stepped in to note the game has “no MTX [microtransactions] or any additional paid for content,” while also confirming the entire soundtrack from the original game will be available, including the licensed tracks. You can even listen to the game’s soundtrack right now for free, via Spotify.

Fans can expect the game to include nearly 100 cars, 10 tracks, extra challenges and goodies, and the eight packs of DLC seen in the original console releases.

Burnout Paradise Remastered is launching across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 16th, for $39.99.
