Burnout gets official title

Next-gen outing is Paradise.

Electronic Arts has unveiled the title of the fifth game in the Burnout series. It'll be called Burnout Paradise, and is due out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this winter.

Naturally it's developer Criterion's first offering for PS3, and promises a free-roaming experience built from scratch for the new technology. This will give us the most detailed damage engine we've seen, and more polygons than you can possibly count up to.

"We have been working towards Burnout Paradise for quite some time," said Pete Hawley, executive producer for the game. "Next generation consoles have opened up a raft of new gameplay opportunities and the Criterion team has leapt at the chance to innovate and raise the bar to an all-new high."

"There are going to be some big surprises and a lot of new features but the core of the game is still pure Burnout. Instant accessibility will be reinforced by innovative online capabilities which will see Burnout Paradise smash racing conventions."
