See if you can locate all 75 Island Smash Gates, all 45 Island Billboards and each of the 15 Island Mega Jumps (so big that 'Super' wasn't good enough).

Compete to rule 12 new roads. Can you beat both the Time and Showtime records?

Join your friends online to take part in 10 crazy Freeburn Challenges.

Collect all 9 new vehicles including the stunt-tastic Carson Dust Storm.

Keep track of everything you do on your vacation with your all-new Big Surf Island License.

Info on the Island Pack arrives early

Before the leaks, the game pack was expected to be sold for $10, but it seems now that Criterion has decided that the amount of content and the number of hours of playability deserve a higher price tag.

The Big Surf Island downloadable add-on for Burnout Paradise will go for 1200 Microsoft points, or about $15 US, and the PlayStation Network download will set you back $15 too. It is probably because of the longer than expected development cycle as well as the amount of included content, that the price is higher than expected.

As for the achievements, the Xbox 360 version will offer an additional 110 points in five new achievements, which brings the total to 60 achievements for a total of 1250 points. They will be:

Smash n' Grab - Drive through 20 Island Smash Gates
Surf Boards - Smash 15 Island Billboards
Island Explorer - Find all 15 Island Events
Crash TV Air Time - Get at least 4.5 seconds Air Time from the Ski Jump
People Person - Complete all 10 Island Freeburn Challenges. These can be completed by 2 - 8 players

PlayStation 3 owners will receive 10 new trophies, 3 of them sliver and 7 bronze, which gives the game a total of 98 trophies on the PS3, 32 more than the next closest game. They will make users:

Drive through 20 Island Smash Gates
Smash 15 Island Billboards
Land 5 Island Mega-Jumps
Jump through Deese’s Donut
4.5 seconds of Crash TV Air Time
Complete a 750 yard drift inside the Inspiral Car Park
Complete your first Island Tour
Find all Island Events
Complete all 10 Island Freeburn Challenges
Smash all 45 Island Billboards

Big Surf Island is probably the last planned add-on for Burnout Paradise. It is probable that some players will be put off by the price, but it will be very popular with those who have been playing the game for some time.

The exciting new pack will be released on the 11th, 3 days from now. Don't miss it.
