How to Play a LAN Game in Burnout Paradise

Updated July 20, 2017

"Burnout Paradise" is a game released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in January 2008. It allows you to race vehicles in an open area world. As you play Burnout, your vehicle suffers progressive damage as you collide with world environments. You can race and play with other gamers using the LAN game option, provided the other gamers exist on your physical network.

Ensure that your PS3 or Xbox 360 is connected wirelessly or with an Ethernet cable to a router that other Burnout Paradise players are currently using.

Ensure that you have access to a dedicated display, such as a monitor or television. Connect this cable to the back of your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.

Insert the Burnout Paradise disc into the optical drive bay of your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 console.

Wait as the game loads, then select "LAN Play" from the main game menu.

Wait as existing game servers are detected. If no one on your local area network (LAN) is playing, you can create a new game from the "Create Game" menu. Otherwise, select "Join Game" once you have highlighted the game you wish to join using your control pad's directional arrows.
