PS Blog: Introducing MotorStorm Apocalypse

Matt Southern, Game Director at Evolution Studios, writes:

"More than two years ago we decided where the MotorStorm festival should head next, and I’ve been itching to talk about it ever since. Now, as part of the global announcement, and with E3 just around the corner, it’s so exciting to finally be able to share some information about the MotorStorm Apocalypse."

Motorstorm2: (lot of variety) 8/10
Motorstorm3: ...8.1/10

who cares "journalism" reviews?

i just care personal opinion.

young juice3113d ago

hopefully we get more 'deatails' on the dreamcast games too

"I wonder, what's gamespot going to rate this one?"
Depends how much advertisement space they buy.

Now we just need a Resistance 3 announcement :)

Doubt it. For once, I'm incredibly excited for a racer. More so than Gran Turismo 5. People have always attributed gaming to passing time. It's sad really. This is probably the only reason gaming hasn't advanced as rapidly over the last ten years as it is now. With Uncharted 2, people began to realize gaming wasn't about alleviating boredom. It's about the experience.

Evolution Studios has nailed it. It took them three iterations, but they nailed it this time. Three campaigns, one for each difficulty, that's f#cking brilliant! It encourages replay value. Each character will have a different story to tell; a different experience to partake in. I'm so excited for this game. The single player alone sounds magnificent.

At first when I read the previews and press releases, I was a little turned off. It was weird hearing Southern talk about story and experience in a racer. But I realize that is because we've never had anything like this before. I don't expect the story to be spellbinding or something, but I expect the experience will be extraordinary.

For once, I'll be there day one for MotorStorm. The Apocalypse can't come soon enough. Also, the Wreckreation mode sounds awesome!

EDIT: Oh yeah, completely forgot about the 3D. What more could a gamer ask for? Somehow, this just catapulted into my Top 5 most anticipated games. Bravo, Evolution! Now, I just need to save up a ridiculous amount of money to afford one of those nice 3D HDTVs. I'm going to be so broke this holiday. :(

8.2? Lmao. BTW judging from the screens it looks great.

I'm excited for this, and I'm happy they're not abandoning splitscreen play.

FantasyStar3113d ago

Now, if only we can get some LAN play...

WhittO3112d ago (Edited 3112d ago )

Cant believe the amount of features:

- 4 Player PSN Login/Split-screen with Guest Login too
- Create mode creator
- Custom Soundtracks
- Home Support
- Every vehicle in Pacific Rift + 5 More!

Not to mention the setting looks amazing, will be so amazing to be in a tense race with a city collapsing around you! That alone is worth the purchase lol

Puts some other Devs to shame in what they are too lazy to include (like different PSN Logins etc).

Independent_Charles3113d ago

thereshoud be more action involved with the maps in my opinion. like massive cliffs falling down randomly for example

Blaze9293113d ago

"The city will be constantly ripping apart during races and paths will open up or be cut off forcing players to think fast and use different routes through the course. "

Looks and sounds like what Blackrock Studio had going on for their game Split/Second....just sayin'

TotalPS3Fanboy3112d ago

Blackrock Studio had the right idea. But Evolution perfected it.

Just like Kill Switch had the right idea about a Cover System, but Gears perfected it.

Greywulf3112d ago (Edited 3112d ago )

Yet hes the same guy that thinks Gears is amazing for a borrowed cover system..

Forza is amazing for Grids rewind feature & shifts tire flex..

Halo is amazing for copying Unreal....

etc etc.

Them blinders be amazin!

Split Second is multiplatform garbage, as usual, that doesn't have half the features Motorstorm 1 had, let alone 2.

vhero3112d ago (Edited 3112d ago )

Honestly I can say this game is gonna be huge the other 2 seem like stepping stones for this.. They were unique indeed but moving to the city and what they done with it... Amazing! It is gonna blow people away I think I am gonna get this one. I didn't like the first but I really like the look of this one. The graphics look awesome and with the customization... Well it's not as in depth as Forza but not everybody can use all those tools anyways and prefers to download. I love the share designs feature! It was the one thing I loved about Forza to be honest.

Ravage273112d ago (Edited 3112d ago )

Not sure what you are trying to achieve with that comparison but i'll just remind you of the fact that development of Motorstorm Apocalypse started 2 years ago....

bjornbear3113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

that sounds absolutely insane, im literally more hyped for Motorstorm than almost any other game now o.O, and i didn't even think much of the other games (loved the gameplay but they seemed lacking in content =( )

pure epic win

rezzah3113d ago
