PostBurnout Paradise - Banjo, you cŵn arse!!!!
by Hugo Stiglitz » Fri Sep 12, 2008 9:06 pm

We're finally able to announce that our latest free downloadable Burnout pack bikes will be out 18th September!!!

It's tough to give specific dates on downloadable content, because we don’t know for certain until the last minute. But hey, we're really excited about bringing bikes to Burnout, so we're going to take a chance and tell you that we're aiming for September 18 – that's this coming Thursday!

If you missed our earlier posts, here's what's coming:

* Pick from 2 motorcycles featuring male or female characters and start on a whole new progression to earn your Bike License.

* 38 new against-the-clock race events – Burning Ride and Midnight Ride.

* A brand new in-game 24 hr day / night cycle that impacts traffic density and available events. (It's fully customisable – you can make it day/night/change the clock speed – it's up to you.)

* Dynamic weather brings an all-new look to Paradise City

* And if that's not enough, we've got 70 more Freeburn Challenges too

Freeburn is Burnout’s uninterrupted drop-in / drop-out online play. It’s a cool collaborative experience, so it's all about hanging out with your friends, messing around in vehicles while racing, pulling tricks and crashing in a massive open world city.

If 350 fun, co-operative challenges aren’t enough to keep you and your friends occupied, the Bike Pack throws a further 70 to the mix. These bike-exclusive challenges are split 50:50 between regular challenges and timed, against-the-clock challenges for those that enjoy a little more intensity.


clicky

Any ideas if trophies are being added in the PS3 update?

We've got more detail on bikes in our latest video podcast – Crash TV. You can see it now on iTunes.

Next week, we're talking trophies.

I really admire Criterion for taking this approach to extending the life of the game on console, and I'm amazed it got past EA and MS.

What happens to the rider when the bikes crash?

I think the rider just disappears and you see the bike smash up.
They couldn't do the rider as it would bump up the rating :(

I saw a gameplay trailer of someone on a motorbike in it, and when he crashed into a wall at speed, nothing happened. The interviewee said with motorbikes they were focusing less on crashes and more on speed.

The whole bike-thing went zero on me when I found out that the riders disappear.

Still waiting for the really significant free update that includes a new island personally.

Oh and those planes of course.

Any additional Achievements with this update?

So will the 360 update happen at the same time as the PS3 version this time?

I've never really been able to get into this. I think I'll go back to it and try again after I'm done with VP:TIP.

I'm looking forward to the day/night cycle as much as the bikes!
