Burnout Paradise Demo Gaining 8 Person MP

Criterion will tomorrow double the multiplayer capacity of the already-released Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 Burnout Paradise demos, the developer revealed on its official site.

Between January 4 and January 14, gamers will be able to engage in online matches with up to 8 players. The demo had previously been limited to 4 players, though the upcoming full version supports a total of 8 participants in an online match.

The company will also be unlocking 13 additional Freeburn challenges: 4 for an 8-player matches, and 3 for 5-, 6-, and 7-player bouts.

The latest in Criterion's racing-crashing series hits PS3 and Xbox 360 on January 22.
