This update was originally planned as free downloadable content but was later revealed to be paid-for content.
- We'd mentioned in a previous podcast that this would be free content, but we can now confirm that it will be premium paid-for content.
- Here's why. We never expected to create anything this ambitious for the island, but as it progressed we got more and more excited about what it could become.
- Big Surf is the culmination of everything we learned creating Paradise City, and we want it to bring you a truly spectacular new experience – the highlight of a year of incredible premium content. Burnout already delivers incredible value for money – literally hundreds of hours of gameplay with your original disk or PSN purchase, plus more with the free Cagney Pack and free Burnout Paradise Bikes.

A 2 part Crash TV episode was released before the Island content was made available with the first part on May 28th, 2009 and the seond part on June 8th, 2009. The first part featured gameplay footage of the new areas, new menus, the Island License and the Carson Dust Storm. Part 2 featured the Hunter Olympus Governor and Carson Annihilator Street Rod.

In 2014, a player known as "smilingfrog" successfully ported Big Surf Island to PC in its entirety, along with the cars from Cops and Robbers. It also added some extra goodies as well.
The Island: Before & AfterEdit
Players could see Big Surf Island under construction from the roof of the parking lot located on Angus Wharf. It had very few buildings and looked radically different to the released content.
