    Hey,

    Sorry if this has already been posted couldn't find if it has :) Burnout is free on origin! All you need to do is add it to your check out, On the check out page enter "PARADISE" in the promo box. The price changes to £0.00 and viola you get it for free! I'm not sure if it's UK only! Give it a try.

    I want another Burnout game. The open world was not good for Paradise.

    I enjoyed the open world, but it had one large downside - because there were only a few finish points (8 maybe 10?) it was always the same route to whatever location + two or three corners at the start to get to the normal route... so it got repetitive quickly.

    Free game + region exclusivity = FAIL

    You mean like TOR or a VPN? Perhaps the thread name should be changed in order to SPECIFY WHICH REGIONS CAN GET THE GAME *hint*, *hint*.

    Yeah, something like that :ninja: , but you still a need an account from UK, address, etc...

    By the way, this offer only work through the origin beta, if you put the code on the website it just give an error, try it from the app

    Thanks for the heads up. I might have to make as Origin account, seeing that I love the Burnout games.

    This is UK only. VPN/Proxy doesn't work either.

    I bought it on steam for a few bucks last time it was on sale. Cool game. I played the crap out of it on xbox live.
