Courtesy of Criterion Games, here's this week's big announcement! To quote:
We're talking Burnout Paradise Legendary Cars.
This year, we've introduced some of the most incredible vehicles yet seen in a Burnout game. Our FREE Cagney pack brought you the crazy Steel Oval Racer and the Hippie Wagon, and the FREE Bikes Pack brought motorcycles to Paradise City for the first time ever.
In 2009, we're taking Burnout vehicles to the next level with some truly unbelievable new vehicles. First up - The Jansen 88 Special.
This classic 1980's styled silver sports car is based on the fan-favourite Jansen P12, but we've made a few interesting modifications.
Fill the gauge and hit boost to trigger burning flame trails from your back wheels. The 88 Special's fast, manoeuvrable and great in the air.
In fact, if you want to take off, this is just the car for you. Hit L3 to switch to hover mode - the wheels retract and the car takes off and hovers through Paradise City at head height.
Seriously. It hovers.
This is the first of 4 cars that we're making available as part of a wealth of new downloadable content for Burnout Paradise. They're available to buy individually or discounted, if you pick up the whole set. In addition to the Jansen 88 Special, look out for the Cavalry Bootlegger, Manhattan Spirit and the GT Nighthawk.
We'll bring you details of these in a future post or on Crash TV - our video podcast.
We'll be back next week with another cracking podcast and another killer announcement for next year's awesome Burnout Paradise content. More PlayStation 3 News...
