Big Surf Island Dated as 11th June 2009

On Friday at 4pm BST Criterion Games answered the most frequently asked question about the Island.

When will the Island be released?

The answer is the 11th of June 2009, you can see new island footage over at www.CriterionGames.com along with all the latest from the team.

We still don't have details of the price of the Island, or what Achievements will be included with the DLC.

But, there are loads of things we do know...

The Island will feature 15 new events, 10 online freeburn challenges, 45 Billboards, Mega Jumps and new cars to unlock!

Big Surf Island with be out on the 11th of June 2000 and 9, which is a Thursday!

They show off some good footage, of the Island, and the Duststorm and the reveal of 8 more cars to be won in game, challenges and new events etc., meaning that 1200 MSP tag could be a clear winner, but it may be more? Not release of price as yet, but we will see.

I just don't get the ski jump in a tropic surrondings and the advertising of criteriongamesdot com almost everywhere, well over done on the self plug, don't ya think criteriongamesdot com, lol, lol, wash repeat and rise again, lol, 'elp i'm in a loop.

But looks pretty I await the playablity...

atience is something I taught myself, so I never know when it's going to run out?

Patience is something I taught myself, so I never know when it's going to run out?

O.K. so the Island looks pretty damn awesome!I am once more hyped up again, but they did overdue the CG plug a little, like we don't know where we are at?having said that the circular parking garage looks like a whole lot of fun, and 8 new cars;SWEET!As long as the cars are worth winning, and not a crappy knock off of something else we have already, with a new paint job, and different boost!Give me an Extreme Duststorm, or an Extreme toy GT.20 more days?I guess it's back to finding new places to put your Toys.

Hopefully you won't need to re-mortgage your house in order to buy it. my thoughts are that you will have to unlock the Duststorm before you get chance to play in it, unless its Duststorm + 8 which gives us 9 new ones in total, 2 certains ones are the Extreme Anihalator and the Camo Olympus.

It looks very pretty from the video, lets hope it plays as well as it looks. :)

If that phrase is true I wouldn't mind going for a drive through the shallow waters of the paradise sea. :) Lookin 4ward to driving up the circular car park and jumping from the ski jump :)

If we dont get more achievements i'm going to be a lil dissapointed though.

Finally, an Extreme anything, Extreme is good, and Extremely awesome.Give me an Extreme Bike with Extreme boost so I can do Extreme things, and have Extreme fun doing it.Did that sound a bit Extreme?

Extremely!

I don't care how much it costs I'm so getting it. Shame that my 360 has just RRoD on me

 

I'm hoping that they can fix it in double quick time.

Should be part 2 of the Big Surf Island Podcasts.

I think gravy was getting a little ahead of himself, the Island itself is still 2 weeks away.

there was me thinking we was waiting for something special here..

if thats all they are giving us then what is the point..

10 challenges? wtf most of us will get them done first day, as for 12 road rules.. one day... discoverables a couple of days.. this will be old hat in one week for anyone..

 

we wanna see challenges for both the island and paradise as is now take it to 1000/1000 challenges... surely they could do that ..

15 events? are 4 of those burning routes to take the total cars up to 9? dust storm you start with then win 4 of em by doing the events then do the burning routes to get the rest? ... lame!!

i dont like the idea of getting hardly anything after waiting since last september for it to come out..

 

achievements? anyone got any ideas on those?

why the hell dont criterion let us at xbox know what is going on the ps3 trophies are anounced they get all the details we get to guess...

Finally we know what 360 achievements will be available with Big Surf Island. There are only 5 achievements compared to the 10 trophies for PS3, but we expected this as 360 has had minimal achievments with each bit of DLC. See my blogs to see how I really feel about this!

Anyway, here is the Achievements list:

  • Smash 'n Grab - Collect 20 Island Smashes - 20 GS
  • Surf Boards - Collect 15 Island Billboards -20 GS
  • Island Explorer - Find all 15 Island events - 20 GS
  • Crash TV Airtime - Land the Mega Jump from the Crash TV Ski Jump and get at least 4.5 seconds of Air Time - 25 GS
  • People Person - Awarded when you complete all 10 Island Freeburn Challenges. These can be completed by 2 - 8 players - 25 GS

And that's all folks.

Very good advert from the boys at the doghouse, looking like a winner for paradise vegatarians oh, wrong game, the m4d 3l3i7'5, lol.

I am getting more hyped to get it and finish it in 24 hours, though i think the challenges will take a bit longer, for all of them.
