Electronic Arts has released a blood-pumping new Burnout Paradise Remastered trailer for your viewing pleasure as the publisher gears up for the racer's launch this Friday.

Clocking in at just over one minute, 'The Race Is On' (via PST) offers a succinct reminder as to why Burnout Paradise is remembered so fondly as one of the greatest titles of the last generation of consoles. If you've never played it, then this is the ideal chance to experience the 2008 behemoth, albeit with a new and improved frame rate and visual makeover.

Crucially, Burnout Paradise Remastered also retains the original head-banging soundtrack that made playing the game that extra bit special. After all, it wouldn't be the same if you weren't able to cruise along to Paradise City by Guns 'N Roses, would it? Nah, didn't think so. 

Burnout Paradise Remastered speeds onto PS4 and Xbox One on March 16, priced at £34.99.
