Time travel, boats, and other scrapped Burnout DLC ideas


When it comes to downloadable content on consoles, Criterion Games is leading the way. Taking a fun game (Burnout Paradise) and then significantly expanding it to the point where the original concept is unrecognizable is not something many studios are willing or able to do. But they did it.

Now that Criterion is off working on other things, the team has let loose some rather great ideas for Burnout Paradise add-ons that our eyes will likely never get to witness. Any dedicated Burnout fan will tell you planes were at one point going to be an actual thing -- this is only the beginning of the madness.

Another proposed add-on was taking the action to the Moon, literally. How fun would low gravity racing be? Tons, I bet. Criterion also humored such ideas as boats, helicopters, underground tunnels, motorcycles versus cars, a series of islands (each with a distinct racing style), and even time travel. Yes, time travel.

"On a certain day, a time portal would have opened on the Island. When you jumped through, you would have found yourself on Big Surf, at another point in history. Maybe the Wild West ... you could have done some Challenges and then jumped back." I need this to happen!
