Burnout Enters The Night

We've already reported on the upcoming bike-bonanza Burnout Paradise will be experiencing with the release of the next free DLC pack. In this previous post we also hinted at more details about the Day and Night element of the new package being announced over the coming weeks. Well, true to his word, the ever-magnanimous Jeremy Chubb from Criterion has returned to the PlayStation blog to divulge some extra info about this exciting new feature.

Recapping what's on offer, Jeremy has pointed out that half of the new Burning Rides take place when the sun goes down and are referred to as "Midnight Rides". So, how does time pass in Paradise and what changes can we expect to see as we venture down darker avenues?

Night-time is classified as between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. with lights coming on your bike and traffic depleting to support an environment customised for speed. Invoking night play is possible at any time and you can even customise how quickly night passes. So yes, this means you can set it to change in real time for some mammoth Burnout sessions.

Expect the new update to hit the streets over the next couple of weeks.

Yes, the post-release support by Criterion has has been amazing. I hope more games take notice and follow suit.

It's been very surprising to see how Criterion have handled Burnout. I mean, all this free stuff!

I wonder if all that advertising in the game pays for all this extended joy? If that's the case, then certainly something the gaming industry certainly needs to take note of. I mean, I don't mind too much paying a few £ for a good expansion set but this is crazy! Albeit a beneficial crazy.
