Sony’s Playstation Blog recently released some more info on the next MotorStorm game, MotorStorm Apocalypse: Due for release in 2011 on PS3 has now moved on from Monument Valley, The Island and the Arctic, this time Motorstorm hits an abandoned tremor hit city where you can take part in multi-vehicle action across the tops of unstable skyscrapers, through ravaged buildings, into darkened subways and over twisting bridges while jaw-dropping quakes tear the city apart in real time.
Pick your vehicle from one of 13 classes, including supercars, muscle cars, superbikes, and even choppers, then choose one of 40 unique races while looters and military contractors fight for what is left of the city. No track is ever the same as you endure hundreds of explosive real-time dynamic events in the most unpredictable and spectacular races of your life. There are also plans to release a Playable Demo in 2011.
- In single player mode, experience a unique story of three characters – each offering a different difficulty level – as they experience the insane urban festival from unique perspectives, and finally get to learn more about the crazy crew behind each MotorStorm festival. If you want to show off your reckless driving skills, you can race against 4 of your friends in split-screen or race against 16 players online; or combine the two. The Game Mode Creator lets you create, share and play totally new game experiences from scratch, and you can customise your vehicle in game or download new vehicles, parts and graphics from PlayStation®Store via PlayStation Network and share designs with friends around the world. There are so many combinations that each player could own a unique vehicle to suit their racing style.
