A quick test of the new, faster trophy comparison following the 2.76 firmware update, lead me to notice that once again I was at less than 100% for Burnout Paradise. The reason being that the trophies for the Big Surf Island DLC are now listed.

For those of you familiar with the streets of Paradise City, these will give you some idea of how large Big Surf Island may be. The big surprise is that there are only 10 Freeburn Challenges. Personally, I was hoping for at least another 50 as freeburning online with a group of friends/TSAers/non-nob randomers is where a good proportion of Burnout Paradise’s fun is to be had.
Given that Criterion have said in the past that there is a new type of vehicle being released to go with the DLC, the buggy-type one seen in the early Big Surf art shots, it is also surprising that there are no new trophies related to that vehicle. Given how trophies have been assigned to completing stunts and events with so many of the other DLC cars, it leads me to wonder whether that buggy will be another piece of premium DLC further down the line.
No word yet on a release date for Big Surf, but we will let you know as soon as we do.
