MotorStorm Apocalypse gets free 'After Party' DLC today

Owners of MotorStorm Apocalypse will be greeted with a new title update today. Whereas other patches add bug fixes, the so-called "After Party" pack adds brand new content into the game.

Included in today's update is a new track: "The Rock," an abandoned prison island that only features coincidental similarities to the Sean Connery vehicle. "Multiple routes have been carved into the island’s varied terrain, so expect off-road racing action reminiscent of the legendary island in the Pacific Rift." The track can be played in both day and night modes. Read more »

MotorStorm: Apocalypse gets 'Features' trailer

Hot on the heels of MotorStorm: Apocalypse's release yesterday, Evolution studios has unleashed a new 'Features' trailer, detailing the game's various attributes.

The trailer showcases the main characters from each of the single-player campaign's three difficulties (Mash, Tyler, and Big Dog), reveals some of the ways rides can be customized, and touts the game's great use of "real-time destruction." The trailer also highlights online multiplayer for up to sixteen racers, but just think of that as a tease until the PlayStation Network comes back online. Read more »

MotorStorm Apocalypse delayed indefinitely in North America

Though not entirely surprising after similar delays were announced in Japan and Europe, Sony confirmed today that MotorStorm Apocalypse has been delayed indefinitely in North America due to the earthquake in Japan. It was set to come out April 12.

It's unclear if the delay is due to supply issues, but some early reviews have already hit. Sony could be making the decision to push the game due to sensitivity reasons; after all, it is about an earthquake that makes the California Bay Area into a wasteland. We'll keep an eye out for a new release date.
