EA has told Eurogamer that Burnout Paradise will be out here on 25th January.
It follows word from late October that it will be on US shelves on 22nd, complimented by demos for PS3 and 360 sometime this month.
Burnout Paradise is the most ambitious outing in the series so far, presenting car crashers with an open world to zoom around, triggering races by stopping at streetlights or jumping through hoops and that sort of lark. The emphasis being on doing things at your pace and not in a rigid order. Free your minds.
You will also be able to invite your friends over to your world and have an automobile pyjama party, without any loitering in lobbies and all that palaver - they appear on your roads and drive around until you fancy a race.
Very promising is the general consensus, so pop over to our Burnout Paradise gamepage and crash yourself in information.
