Electronic Arts released today “a fully explorable slice” of the award-winning and highly anticipated racing game, Burnout Paradise.

The demo is available now on the Playstation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace. It allows players to check out a portion of Paradise City before the game hits shelves in North America on January 22.

Discover jumps, billboards and smashable targets all over Motor City, Big Surf Beach and Ocean View in search of the fastest Burnout Route in the Hunter Cavalry car. Also, attempt your shot at a race and check out the all-new Stunt Run mode. If you’re online, invite up to three friends into your game and connect with them instantly using the EasyDrive online system. Once online, players can work cooperatively to complete three FreeBurn challenges or simply smash each other up and grab their Burnout Mugshots with the Playstation Eye and Xbox Live Vision cameras.

According to the game’s designer, Criterion , said recently that Burnout Paradise has been designed for speed, freedom, social online play and spectacular crashing, “but now with all new modes, a completely open world and events at every intersection,” they said.

Download it now — Paradise is the best looking racing game we’ve heard of this year.
