Criterion Games has announced that it plans to release a special edition boxset for Burnout Paradise
this February, putting the release alongside the PC version of the game.
The boxset, to be called Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Box
will include a copy of the game with both the Cagney and Bikes updates, as well as a new offline multiplayer mode.
The new mode, dubbed Burnout Paradise Party
, is an offline mode for up to eight players to play in a hotseat game-style. Criterion promises that there'll be dozens of new challenges an missions for players in this mode, based around Speed, Stunt and Skill events.
To help appease fans, Electronic Arts has also said that the new mode will also be available to those who already have a copy of the game and will go on sale on Xbox 360 Marketplace and the PlayStation Store as an extra bit of DLC.
The boxset is set for release this February, which coincides with the hugely delayed but massively awaited PC version of the game.
