Wondered if someone might be able to help me with this issue. There are a lot of people claiming to have the answer on other forums, but an equal amount of people who think they're talking out of their ass.

Having bought Burnout Paradise Ultimate / Unlimited / Complete (or whatever) a long time ago I fully expected to either get access to all the vehicles or at least be able to buy the DLCs. This isn't the case as Criterion / EA have removed support for this game.

I wondered if someone might be able to point me in the direction of a definitive solution to this issue? I figure asking the experts is probably better than trying a home-brew solution from some random mouth breathing dribble merchant.

If it helps; I have the stand alone version of the game (non-steam, non-origin).

Thanks in advance.

I am guessing you want to know if you should have access to everything yes? As it wasn't 100% clear that was your question.

If so I have no idea, I have no love for racing type games, but I think a lot of people got it with the humble bundle last year.

Problem is you have to beware titles with Ultimate and Unlimited or Complete in the title, as they can be perceived wrongly quite easily.

But I did a quick google (it's amazing what you find on that) and here ya go

"Criterion in addition also announced the combo pack "Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box" that launched around the same time which contains the original game, plus the Cagney, Bikes, Party pack and Update pack all in the same package which contained "a mountain of new refinements"."

Which means not all DLC was included unfortunately. Just the DLC that was available at launch only.

Thanks Dab hand. I appreciate the prompt reply.

As I understand it, many people have successfully managed to unlock the DLCs that are no longer available. (Or at the very least make the vehicles that would have come with those DLCs available for use).

I'd happily donate $25 to the site fund if someone could offer me a solution to make this happen without breaking the game as I have also recently bought a number of Burnout Paradise origin keys for friends.

Thanks again.
