Criterion Games announced today the Big Surf Island expansion pack to their immensely popular racing title Burnout Paradise will be made available on both Playstation Network (approx. $15) and Xbox Live (1000 Microsoft Points) starting on June 11th. The expansion pack comes with a new island location to explore, in addition to nine new playable vehicles, the highest jumps yet in the game, and more challenges and events to play online against friends. The single player component to the expansion will further encourage exploration, with hidden areas open to those that spend the time to discover them.

“Big Surf Island is the most fun players can have in Burnout Paradise and provides incredible value for money,” says Pete Lake, Big Surf Island producer at Criterion Games. “We listened to our community and built this massive new playground for them, taking everything they loved about the game and using it to make the Island as much fun as possible. Big Surf Island is packed full of action, everything is bigger and better, from the jumps, to the challenges, to the fun you’ll have playing there.”
