Rumor: Motorstorm 3 Goes Apocalyptic

ConsolePress writes: "We knew it was coming, but not like this. Motorstorm, the series that defined what off-road racing should be, has unexpectedly taken a liking to asphalt and cityscapes. Rather than plowing through the mud and foliage of a remote island, or slamming opponents off the side of a high altitude cliff, the team at Evolution Studios seem to be going in a direction that we may not like." (Motorstorm 3, PS3)

I don't know what to make of this. I'm trusting the developers know what they're doing but, if this rumour turns out to be true (which I'm sure it is)...

so it'll be more of a twisted metal with no guns ?


damn they should add guns
and there you have it a new PS3 twisted metal

NO!! NO GUNS!!!!
I remember HHG saying that MS3 would have guns. *sigh...* And I remember saying how I wouldn't buy MS3 if it did.

I love PacRiff because it's a brutal racing game, not a car combat game.

MS3 would be bad ass in cities.
Gun's would ruin the franchise. I also wouldn't buy it if they did that. Actually any kind of gimmicky weapon system would ruin it.
Game play is great how it is.
Hip hop gamer is a dumb ass.

Swords yes...
Baseball bats yes...
Chainsaws yes...

Riding your bike would be even better if you could take out your chainsaw and cut enemies.

So Guntrol,

you want a nexgen Road Rash? That would kick ass.
Hideo_Kojima  +   1880d ago
You can already whack them off with your hand but I thought it would be cool if you could do it with a bit more range and a lot more style.
NecrumSlavery  +   1880d ago
Maybe a little GOW style Quicktime, hook to the bike, jump over, stab them in the face and jump back to your bike?...
Hideo_Kojima  +   1880d ago
I hope your not being sarcastic because that just sounds orgasmic to me.
Better still if you dont jump back to your own bike. It would be better if you kept their bike to piss them of more.

I've seen the new motorstorm
for those who don't believe me, here's a link to my comment 26 days ago, long before the screens that leaked, describing exactly what you see in the screens.


It looks more than great graphically, Sony is going to se the bar for one more time. It's full of action, that's all I can tells you right now. The rest you will see with your eyes at E3. Also, it's stated for a 2011 release, it's not going to be out this year...

I believe you but how did you get to see the game so much earlier than everyone else? Do you work for Sony or something? Lets be friends :)
vasilisk  +   1880d ago
I don't work for Sony, but my line of work (not a game journalist either - I write some articles for a puclication in my country but it's not my primary job) gives me access to this kind of information, sometimes much earlier than the majority of the game press..
Sorry but I can't tell you more about any other games, but I can tell you that from September probably, if not earlier, Sony is going to increase their HDD sizes for the PS3, that's the reason for the shortages. As for a price cut I don't know, the official word is that it's under consideration. Maybe they're keeping this one a secret, or it actually is under consideration. Also the rumour for a 60 euro bundle for the move and the PSeye is correct.

Sorry again I can't talk more about games, E3 is around the corner:)

Amazing that even in an apocalyptic world, the Motorstorm Festival is still being held and it looks like you can run over people as well on the 1st pic.

It might be cool
Motorstorm always had a bit of crazyiness to it, and they need some big changes to rebound from Pacific rift. This setting is where it's at these days, games like Fallout, Bioshock, Borderlands and the up comming Rage are all big hits.
DJ  +   1880d ago
Things are about to get wild.
I mean, I guess we should've seen it coming since they've done jungles, deserts, and even the arctic, which I thought was a possibility for part 3 before the PSP version was announced. I just pray that it's successful. The last one, Pacific Rift, was way better than the original, but had abysmal sales.

Everyone should be playing Motorstorm, and hopefully this iteration garners a bigger audience.
JBaby343  +   1880d ago
This Is Surprising news
I unfortunately have not bought Motorstorm 1 or 2. Not because of quality but just because I've been too busy with other games and have not gotten into racing games. I wish they had better sales because both are certainly great games from what I've read and seen. I guess others are in the same boat I am. I could see adding cityscapes but hopefully they do keep plenty of off-road mayhem as that is what the games are known for. Will be interesting to see.
D4RkNIKON  +   1880d ago
Same here, I had the demo for Pacific Rift on my PS3 for about a year and played it from time to time. It was really cool but I just prefer racers with weapons to spice things up. It is just a personal preference tho. Burnout paradise was cool being able to take down your competition by slamming them into the guardrails or oncoming traffic.
jack_burt0n  +   1880d ago
just as much taking down in PR as there is in burnout use the shoulder buttons to ram, u guys should buy it.
bloodybutcher  +   1880d ago
you see,i never was into racing games.gt,burnout and others-couldn't care less.motorstorm was the first that i really liked,so i got pacific rift as well.love them both.and now you can get these games really cheap so i would suggest getting'em:)
SOAD  +   1880d ago
Do Motorstorm's maps all follow a basic theme or are there varied environments? You guys are acting all disappointed because of a couple of city maps. For all you know, there will be jungle levels and island levels and arctic levels. Right? I mean, that's why we have 50 gig discs. Variety.

sarshelyam  +   1880d ago
...that's not how MotorStorm has worked. Sure, there is variation within each theme but the root remains a constant. Your tracks in the original are always of a desert theme, Pacific Rift of a jungle/paradise environment (yes volcanoes count), and Arctic Edge is all snow/ice/etc.

>>Everyone should be playing Motorstorm
Agree with that. I'm into that kind of racing games. Wild speeds with nitro boost. Multy-way tracks with ramps and jumps. So much fun.
But if it were not for insane difficulty...
I played two demos of MS2 for a thousand times and loved it, but never won the first place. This difficulty is the only thing that holds me off of buying both Motorstorms. (I stopped playing Midnight Club LA because of difficulty. The PSP version of MC:LA was ok for me - beat the game) ((( . Is there an "easy" mode for such a misery gamer like myself?
UnSelf  +   1880d ago
are u kidding lol?

it must be me, but i hardly ever came in 2nd in MC:LA and for the MS2 demo i placed first about 80% of the time.

well i really am a racing head now that i think about it

Who's we ? That website ? It certainly doesn't include me. I think it's an interesting twist. I was actually curios with what they'd come up this time.
ABizzel1  +   1880d ago
Motorstorm 1 and PR were good games, but as time went by good games were being made for every genre and I truly think the racing genre won't evolve. At the end of the day you're just racing which can be said about many genres, however in racing games there's only cars and tracks which is is a hard sale for gamers.

I want Motorstorm to add natural disasters to the mix, I want to race through a city that's flooding. I want to race on a road with tornadoes spiraling down. I want to race on a mountain trail with rock slides crushing cars. That's the direction I feel a game like Motorstorm should go. Motorstorm to me is about choas and doing whatever you can to get to the finish line first, and the weather would add another layer to the randomness of the races.

i agree, they have avalanches in Motorstorm actic edge.
Bodyboarder_VGamer  +   1880d ago
I liked Motor Storm because of the exotic and beautiful locations. First the desert then the beach but now apocaliptic? Count me out.

Apocaliptic can be beautiful.
Look at Enslaved.

if guns get thrown into it they better change the name. cause i will not play a motorstorm game with guns cause that would make it a diff game.
telekineticmantis  +   1880d ago
OK OK now im anticipating this game. When I first heard about this game being set to be announced at E3 I really didn't care to much, but now reading this article I'm really looking forward to it. It seems to have alot of atmosphere and don't call me a maniac but getting the chance to run people over brings a sense of joy into my life lol.
kvg88  +   1880d ago
since the first Motorstorm dropped
I have been wishing for this. I used to play a lot of Carmageddon back in the day and I wondered what it would be like if it were made with the Motorstorm engine.

If this is done right, I'm buying it day one, no questions asked.
OutgoingSquall  +   1880d ago
I have to see gameplay first intresting.
remanutd55  +   1880d ago
what if its only 1 set of many environments we are going to see in the final game? i mean it could be that the game will take place in a apocalyptic city , island , arctic , desert , something like a worldwide festival lol , i cant wait to see what EVO have been doing to take Motorstorm as a franchise to the next level , LUNATICS UNITE!!!!
SIR-DARK-HAZE  +   1880d ago
Im a ready..
for another Motorstorm, if this is realy MS i hope we can actually hit those people and fly them in to the air.
tiamat5  +   1880d ago
first of all no guns. the point of MS is to win with pure power and speed. Secondly playing apocalyptic style could be fun. Driving through broken and abandoned building, twisting and turning to avoid oil fires, toxic pools and debris, driving through empty city streets, across damaged bridges and even snow and ice resulting from nuclear winter. Depressing but epic.
