Burnout developers EA Criterion has announced the first piece of paid-for downloadable content for Burnout Paradise, dubbed Big Surf Island.

Previously, Criterion has released only free updates and downloadable packs for Burnout Paradise, such as the Cagney update and the Burnout Paradise Bikes pack. Big Surf Island is the first piece of downloadable content for the game that players will be required to pay for, even though it was originally intended to be a free pack too.

"Big Surf is the culmination of everything we learned creating Paradise City, and we want it to bring you a truly spectacular new experience," reads the Criterion blog.

"We never expected to create anything this ambitious for the island, but as it progressed we got more and more excited about what it could become. In fact, that’s the story of all our Downloadable Content."

In terms of content, Big Surf Island should be a significantly sized new land mass which is decorated with plenty of jumps, barrel rolls and creative ways to wreck your car. Criterion has gone out of the way to design an area intended mainly for those who enjoy new stunts over races.

The pack will also add in a new dune buggy vehicle, called the Dust Storm which is designed to make the most of all the jumps and stunts on the island.

No price has yet been confirmed for the pack, but it will be available for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Excited by the idea of spinning off some new jumps? Let us know in the forums, after checking out our Burnout Paradise review, naturally.
