To quote: While MotorStorm: Pacific Rift's online fun is still the number one all-consuming passion for many of our players, we recognize that plenty of you out there have been waiting for a whole new Single Player festival to get your teeth into.
We set the Agenda last year with our popular Revenge Weekend and Devils Weekend expansions for MotorStorm: Monument Valley, and now we're continuing that tradition with our new Speed Weekend festival that features as part of our new Expansion: Speed pack!
Make no mistake, this mode is HUGE... it's packed with unlocks, rewards and trophies, and has been designed to keep challenging you for as long as you want it to. How? Buckle up and I'll divulge some (but certainly not all) of its secrets!
We were very pleased that the speed race events in Pacific Rift were so fantastically popular - they provided a great change of focus and pace from the Eliminator and Race events, and had the scope for repeated play, and for beating your own best score.
While we'll be the first to admit the formula wasn't yet perfected, we all felt we had taken the first steps here towards something...
234w ago - Evolution Studios Game Director Jed Ashforth has shared a video today via PlayStation Blog on MotorStorm: Pacific Rift's Speed and Adrenaline Expansions.
To quote: As you're probably already aware, we've got 2 massive new packs lining up on the start grid, in the shape of 'Expansion: Speed' and 'Expansion: Adrenaline'.
For most players, the biggest news with these packs is all those new tracks, of course! New tracks for the game is always on every player's wishlist in the number one spot, and our track designers have been working non-stop since the completion of Pacific Rift last year on a whole clutch of fantastic new tracks.
MotorStorm has always been critically lauded for its great track designs, and these new ones have all been designed by the same team who crafted Pacific Rift's 16 original tracks, so they have a top-tier pedigree!
In each of the new expansions there are 3 brand new tracks, playable in all online modes, and offline in Time Attack, Free Play, and Split Screen. Let's take in the holiday brochure descriptions of the new locations, pack by pack.
First off, the Expansion: Speed tracks;
