Criterion preparing Burnout Paradise patch

Criterion Games, the developers behind the latest instalment in the Burnout series, Burnout Paradise, have confirmed that they are in the process of addressing consumer feedback on the next-generation racer in preparation for the release of patch v1.2

The company announced a list of ten issues that they are looking into, covering both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the popular racing title, which can be seen below.

·PS3 game can crash when a player is taken down and the player that has performed the Takedown leaves the game.

·The game indefinitely displays "Connecting to Paradise City Servers" if it’s having problems pinging the rebroadcast server.

·Disconnecting the controller before a race begines (sic) can mean that race timings can be manipulated with players who didn’t cross the line first being awarded the win

·Repeatedly joining and leaving a game with 8 players can cause the game to hang.

·Hammering the A (360) or X (PS3) after unlocking a car can cause the game to hang.

·East Crawford and Watt St achievements can not be achieved if the player goes online and sets road rules before attempting them.

·Audio distortion when using 5.1 / DTS and looking rearwards.

·Enhanced 360 streaming performance stops instances where the game seems to pause for a second or so.

·Total time driven in player stats would stick at 145 hours 🙂

·VoIP connection problems with 8 player games.

A release date for the patch has yet to be revealed, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated on the situation.
