Burnout Wiki

The Live Frontpage was included in Burnout Paradise's the Codename: Cagney Update. It was brought up each time you start up the game and accessible through the start menu. It allowed Criterion Games to broadcast news directly to Burnout Paradise players and give new vehicles to Online players. It was replaced by the browser-based Criterion Games Network in Paradise's Free February Update.

Live Broadcast Gameplay[]

From the Live Frontpage, Criterion Games were able to launch 'Live Broadcast Gameplay'. It allowed the Burnout Team to mix up the way you play the game by changing the cars you could choose on certain days or allowing you to test drive new vehicles. There were three parts of Live Broadcast Gameplay. However, due to a negative opinion from many Burnout fans, Criterion Games ceased Test Drive Tuesdays, Face Off Thursdays, and Graduation Weekends, instead providing the Hunter Olympus and the Nakamura Rai-Jin Turbo RWD to all players for use when playing online, the Carson Hippy Van and the Hunter Oval Steel Racer in the junkyard to all players, and the Rossolini Tempesta Dream and the Carson GT Tiger to all players in the Burnout Bikes Update.
