Sony Announce MotorStorm Apocalypse Is Coming Exclusively To The PS3 In 2011

Sony has revealed MotorStorm Apocalypse is coming to the PS3 in early 2011. The game is set in a city, which has been modelled on the Bay Area of California, that at first appeared to be deserted after a earth quake but one the "Stormers" start racing they find out its not deserted and the earth quakes haven't finished.

MotorStorm games have a tradition of each track having many ways to complete the circuit. in MotorStorm Apocalypse, this has been taken a step further because any changes to the track in single player remain. for example, if a building collapses during a race, that building remains collapsed throughout the rest of the game, but when you go back to the track new routes would have been cleared.

The Multiplayer mode, Wrecknation, has also been improved and will feature:
* Sixteen player online multiplayer.
* Four player split-screen.
* Combinations of the two. Play with three friends in the living room against 12 more online.
* Massive vehicle customisation. Change vinyls, vehicle parts, vehicle shapes and more. Upload them to the community site and share them with others. They automatically work on all vehicle types, and include your PSN ID.
* Vehicle perks. Modify your handling, boosting and offensive abilities as you unlock new perks.
* A wealth of rankings to progess through online with associated rewards and recognition.
* Stacks of online rewards to earn and persistent progress giving the most determined and successful racers the status and recognition they deserve.
* Persistent matchmaking. Keep your party together throughout your gaming session.
* A Game Mode Creator. From a completely blank canvas you can design your own game rules and victory conditions, play them online, and incorporate them into tournaments.
