Criterion has announced it will be releasing four more Burnout Paradise updates during spring next year.

The company will be unveiling the first of these - Pack 4 - this Friday, 31st October.

A week later, on 7th November, we'll get details on Pack 5, with information on Pack 6 and 7 getting released on the 14th and 21st of November respectively.

One of these is expected to be the Eastwood update, which will add a new island to Paradise City, with biplanes also rumoured to be making an appearance.

The game, which launched in January 2008, has seen a fair few updates since its release - the biggest of which would probably be the free Cagney and Burnout Bikes packs. The Cagney pack added new online modes, while Burnout Bikes added motorbikes and a day/night cycle. To top it all, support for Sony's Trophies was added recently too.

Keep your checking back on the dates above - we'll be sure to get you all the information on the updates as soon as Criterion announces it.
