Criterion Games has honored the death of former Ghostbusters star Harold Ramis, who sadly passed away at the age of 69 this week, by offering the Burnout Paradise Legendary Car Pack for free to Xbox 360 and North American PS3 users today.
The Legendary Car pack contains several not-so-subtle nods to famous movie car stars - one of which happens to be a car that bears an uncanny resemblance to the 1959 Ecto-1 Cadillac Ambulance from Ghostbusters. Other cars in the collection include homages to the Back to the Future DeLorean (complete with folding wheels), Knight Rider's KITT and the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard.
It's not looking like a Burnout sequel will be on Criterion's agenda any time soon having been recently downsized, so now seems like no better time to take a trip back to Paradise City in what I consider to be one of the greatest last-gen racing games.
Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.
Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.
Is 3 cars enough for a pack? Is £1 per car worth it? Hmm it feels like 5-6 would have made for a better selection, I hope to test these out next week.
Just a simply good bye fix then. Now the focus on GT7, lets hope we see that in late 2015, though 2016 still looks more likely.
Yes I'm sure we'll see wet weather tyres implemented on a later build, either way it looks stunning so far and I look forward to testing wet conditions more when they improve the frame rate for triple screens.
