To quote: I am pleased to announce that MotorStorm Apocalypse will be in stores across North America beginning May 3.
That means that in just a few short weeks, you'll be able to get your hands on the most exciting MotorStorm game to date, with more action than a summer Hollywood blockbuster!
I'm also happy to reveal that every new copy of the game will include a voucher for the Premier Pack DLC bundle, which will give you two exclusive in-game vehicles and more (pictured below).
To give you a taste as to what's in store come May 3, take a look at our recent sit-down interview with Game Director Matt Southern as he talks about his vision for MotorStorm Apocalypse and how the game will deliver one of the best racing experiences to date on the PS3:
Gamespot recently gave the game an 8.5, saying the "destructive environments and excellent track design make MotorStorm Apocalypse one of the most exciting racing experiences on the PlayStation 3."
And IGN can't wait for the game, saying "MotorStorm Apocalypse has me all revved up... Controls...
138w ago - Evolution Studios Games Director Matt Southern has posted up a video announcing that MotorStorm Apocalypse PS3 DLC launches today on PSN.
To quote: The timing of MotorStorm Apocalypse hasn't exactly been ideal.
I remember waking on the morning of the Friday, near the end of what was already a pretty heavy week gearing up for European release, switching on the news and being stunned. My first thought wasn't for the game, but for our Japanese Producer and his family.

We did the right thing when we decided to delay it.
Now that we're available in Europe (and soon to be released in the US), it's time to make good on our promises to everyone already playing the game and start unveiling some of our add-ons. I hate calling it 'DLC'; it makes it sound like a spreadsheet template or something.
First-up, you've got two weeks from today to pick up the ultimate 'Stormer status symbol: the Supercar...
149w ago - Evolution Studios Game Director Matt Southern has shared a peek at the MotorStorm Apocalypse PS3 3D Trailer that is now live on PSN in 2D for those who can't wait to check it out!
To quote: Yesterday I paid one of my irregular visits to our research technicians in the building they share with our embedded testers and sound engineers. Once again they blew my mind with their staggering glimpses of tomorrow's world.
Videos of Sony prototypes such as the head-mounted display and the volumetric display cylinder show how exciting the exponential growth of technology for games really is. The Holodeck is closer than any of us could imagine!
About 5 years ago, at the same time MotorStorm was in pre-production, I shared a studio space with these guys, and they were adamant that stereoscopic 3D gaming was going to be far more compelling than 3D movies.
To prove it, they built a 3D simulation of our local race track... and stunned us all. Politicians, senior execs and pro race drivers all secretly visited to see what the modest geniuses we hired from British Aerospace Engineering had achieved.
The culmination of that work can be seen in MotorStorm Apocalypse. It is now regularly described as the best example of stereoscopic...
