Remastered Version of Burnout Paradise Will Run at 60 FPS on the Switch; Releasing on June 19th

The remastered version of Burnout Paradise serves as adrenalin-filled memory that is replete with speed, destruction, and drift that you get to relive again. It was released on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC in 2018 with a Nintendo Switch version in development. It features the base game and all of the DLCs with better textures and resolution. The enhanced consoles (PS4 Pro and Xbox One X) can run the game at 4K 60FPS. Moreover, the asking price of the game was only $40, making it a compelling purchase.

In April, EA announced that the Switch version of Burnout Paradise remastered will be available on June 19th. With only a few days to the release of the game, EA has gone into detail regarding the content, gameplay, and graphics of the Switch version.

The massive open-world of Paradise city, its rural areas, and the Surf Island are back in full glory with enhanced textures and visuals. Even though the destruction of structures in any game takes a huge toll on hardware, EA has decided to retain it as it is one of the crucial aspects of Burnout’s gameplay. The game will run at 60 FPS on the switch; however, the resolution is not disclosed yet. An educated guess would be 720p on handheld and (upscaled?) 1080p on the dock mode.

All other features such as ranked mode, more than 150 cars to add to your collection, and 120 unique events are present.  Lastly, you can pre-order the game now from the Nintendo e-shop. It costs $10 more than the other versions at launch, i.e., $50.
