MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Arrives Tomorrow, DLC Lined Up

50°
326w ago - MotorStorm: Pacific Rift's Game Director Nigel Kershaw shared the following today via PS Blog:

Its launch day for MotorStorm: Pacific Rift in North America tomorrow (w00t)!

It means you all can enjoy MotorStorm Pacific Rift and we can all go on holiday. Except by this point, the UK is accelerating into winter in typical rainy, cold fashion.

So it's the Southern Hemisphere for the sun worshippers amongst the team, and a catching-up on a big pile of games in a darkened room for us redheads that find the sun overrated.





Once were all rested its back to the development bunker to finish off the DLC we have lined up for you guys in the coming months. We've got a pile of stuff waiting in the wings, and, you'll be glad to know, a lot of it is free. We're going to try and give you something new to play with every week, and we've also got some major packs in development that should be on the store after Christmas.

In the meantime, get those Time Trial lap times up on the leaderboards (you're lucky as I've put a moratorium on our QA guys posting up there for two weeks, to let you guys get good at it), have a laugh with split screen, and enjoy this next bout of brutal off-road racing.

Laters!
Nigel
