Criterion Solidifies Plans For Xbox One Backwards Compatible Burnout Paradise

In July, Criterion said it was working on adapting Burnout Paradise for Xbox One backwards compatibility. Today, the studio confirmed that the keys are in the ignition.

Responding to a fan inquiry on Twitter, the studio confirmed that the Xbox 360 version of the most recent Burnout title will be playable on Xbox One. Unfortunately, there’s no date yet, so don’t expect it alongside the public launch of the New Xbox One Experience.

Backwards compatibility is available to members of the Xbox One preview program. It will be widely accessible in November when Microsoft launches its updated dashboard.

Our Take
I missed Burnout Paradise entirely on Xbox 360. Suffice it to say, in the absence of a new Burnout game, I’m eager to finally give this one a try.
