As many of you know, Burnout is going to be getting some new DLC soon. What’s really great to hear is that they are already working on even more DLC to be released in August.

The new DLC is going to contain something that Burnout has never done before, motorbikes!

Not only will it have bikes, but all the bikes will have their own modes and challenges as well. They are also adding the ability to rip apart the streets of Paradise City at night, with less traffic getting in the way.

I’m really glad to see that some companies are approaching the use of DLC in such a great way. Some of the other infamous developers would probably have tried to charge us for some Chromed 22’s, instead of new game modes and vehicles.

So far, it is not know if it will be charged for or free. I doubt it will be free, but if they are going to charge, at least it looks as if it will be worthwhile and not just a pile of dribble that they are trying to flog off for some extra cash.

    Burnout Paradise doesn’t have a driver behind the wheel of the car, in order for them to keep a low ESRB rating. Does this mean we are going to ride motorbikes without any riders, or do you think they are going to put people on them and suffer an ESRB rating hike?

    wow I never thought of that….

    I expect them to put people on since the ESRB only affects retail and not DLC… I think

    In the screen shot there is a driver on the bike.

    @Lazy: Did they not say the new DLC will be coming out this week.

  • The new DLC is coming out this week, but this is their NEXT DLC. It will be interesting to see what they do about the rating.

    In a podcast I listened to this week, they were talking about what would happen if a game was rated teen, and then the DLC is rated as mature. I think that DLC will probably have to make sure that it always stays in the same, or a lower rating than the main game.

  • Maybe the crash dynamics for the bikes is different?
