Burnout Paradise Remastered comes out tomorrow on Xbox One and PS4 but a PC version of the original is readily available. So was this a quick and dirty port or was some polish added?
Digital Foundry have taken a look at the Xbox One version of Burnout Paradise Remastered and found that, yes, this is a true remaster.
Playing on an Xbox One X, Burnout Paradise Remastered is a true 4K game. With improved anti-aliasing, some minor graphical tweaks and an overall crispness that’s lacking in the PC version of Burnout Paradise.
A lot of the details are only there if you’re looking for them. Yet side-by-side comparisons between the two versions show that playing the game on Xbox One X is a significant improvement compared to the existing version. Which makes sense, as Burnout Paradise was originally made for a generation of consoles that Digital Foundry calls “the 720p generation”.
Even playing Burnout Paradise Remastered on the base Xbox One offers significantly improved performance over the PC version. Both Xbox One and Xbox One X have stable performance, holding a consistent 60fps with only the very occasional blip.
