No, Burnout Paradise Remastered doesn't have microtransactions

Store mention of in-game purchases "an error".

Burnout Paradise Remastered does not feature any in-game microtransactions, EA has reassured - despite the game's official store listing saying the opposite.

Fans noticed the phrase "in-game game purchases optional" in Paradise's new store listing last night and feared the worst.

While the Remastered edition features all major DLC, EA made a point of mentioning the game's Time Saver packs were not part of the offering. It is these which fans suspected would be sold as extras.

"Pitch forks down please," EA community manager Ben Walke wrote on Twitter this morning, clarifying the situation:

Burnout Paradise Remastered includes the base game and its eight add-on packs released back in 2009: Cops and Robbers, Legendary Cars, Burnout Bikes, Burnout Paradise Toys, Burnout Paradise Party, Boost Specials, Cagney and Big Surf Island.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both get the game on 16th March, with a PC version later this year. Sadly, there's no sign of a version for Nintendo Switch.
