Better get in those barrel-roll challenges while you can.
Servers for 2008’s Burnout Paradise will shut down on August 1, 2019.
Revealed on the official Burnout Paradise Facebook page, this applies to the original PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. Offline play will remain available, and the servers for 2018’s Burnout Paradise Remastered will not be impacted.
Burnout Paradise remains a beloved game known for its open-world and explosive crash systems. In our review of the original, we called it “Great” saying “Criterion has once again delivered a racing experience that can best be described as controlled chaos, one where even crashing is immensely rewarding.”
Burnout Paradise Remastered was released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in March 2018, and for PC in August 2018.
