Gamespot is reporting that Electronic Arts’ racer Burnout Paradise will be hitting North American store shelves on January 22nd. The European release date has not been mentioned at this time.
From the article:
Eager gamers who can’t wait for the New Year to check out the first open-world installment in Criterion’s long-running series will be able to grab a glimpse of what the game offers a little early. EA is planning to release downloadable demos for both versions of the game in December.
The demo will include a look at the game’s new stunt mode, as well as the chance to race through the game’s streets in search of the fastest route to a set destination. Gamers will also get to check out the new multiplayer emphasis by competing in three challenges online, or make use of the system’s camera peripherals to see the look on the face of a rival racer being rubbed into a guardrail.
