Burnout Paradise's Big Surf Island DLC gets a price tag


With only a few short days until Burnout Paradise gets its next huge add-on, "Big Surf Island", it's about time we heard a little more about the DLC pricing- and content-wise. Thankfully, we have got those exact details from the fine people at Criterion Games.

The price of "Big Surf Island" is $12.99 on PlayStation Network and 1000 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE; about what people expected, I'd say.

The DLC is bringing three silver and seven bronze Trophies to PS3, and five Achievements totaling 110 Gamerscore points to Xbox 360. As expected, these awards range from smashing hidden objects, getting massive air, and more of those lovely Freeburn Challenges. Catch the full list over on Kotaku.

I skipped out on "Cops and Robbers," but this is sounding like a must-buy for the average Burnout Paradise player. Also, Dtoider Vegas has given us a link to the newest episode of Crash TV, which you should watch and ought to thank him for.
