Yesterday, the developer of Burnout: Paradise, Criterion announced on their official blog that the long-awaited Bike pack DLC would be ready to download on September 18. The DLC will be free and, of course, motorcycles will be involved. The introduction of motorcycles is not the only thing the DLC will bring. Criterion has quite the list of new features and races to pick from:

  • Pick from 2 motorcycles featuring male or female characters and start on a whole new progression to earn your Bike License.
  • 38 new against-the-clock race events – Burning Ride and Midnight Ride.
  • A brand new in-game 24 hr day / night cycle that impacts traffic density and available events.  (It’s fully customisable – you can make it day/night/change the clock speed – it’s up to you.)
  • Dynamic weather brings an all-new look to Paradise City
  • And if that’s not enough, we’ve got 70 more Freeburn Challenges too.

We got the opportunity to get our hands on the title update last month at EA Showcase and we came to the conclusion that it was “packed full of awesome” despite the inability to have catastrophic wrecks while driving the motorcycles. There is something about watching a motorcycle driver tumbling through the air after his machine makes contact with a low wall that is beautiful, almost serene. It’s a pity that such a scene won’t be incorporated.
