Burnout Paradise PC Demo Hits, Contains Entire Game

Now available on FileShack is the demo for Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box.

Less of a demo and more of a trial version, the 2.92 GB download actually contains the complete game, allowing players to check out a few cars and the racer's entire open-world setting, complete with the option to upgrade to the full version.

Alongside 120 single player challenges, the demo packs 8-person online multiplayer.

"You can go anywhere in Paradise City and check out everything on offer," developer Criterion previously explained. "Rather than restricting what you can do, we're letting you play through the start of the full game for a limited period."

"There's a limit to just how much you can do and for how long, but we hope you'll agree that there's plenty there to give you glimpse of what the full game has to offer."

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

    That's cool of them to do that. But isn't this a good way to pretty much directly put the game into pirates' hands?

      It's not like you can stop them, so why not do something nice for those of us who do buy games?

      On the other hand it gives people who try the demo a much better indication of what the full game offers than what the more limited console demo did.
