Burnout Paradise's Big Surf Island dated

Jump in, up and all around in June.

Criterion Games has announced an 11th June release date for Big Surf Island on PS3 and Xbox 360.

This is the next beefy premium update for Burnout Paradise that finally offers a bridge out of the city to an area offering the biggest jumps in the game and a new sense of freedom. There's no word on cost, yet.

There's a lovely video of the content over on the official Criterion website.

Despite being released at the very beginning of 2008, Burnout Paradise continues to regularly expand as Criterion provides a shining example of what post-release DLC can offer.
