Summary

The Motorstorm series has earned itself a bit of a legacy since its debut on the PlayStation 3 back in 2007. It took off-road racing and turned it on its head - the result being a marvelously muddy, explosive mess of multiplayer mayhem. But with Motorstorm Apocalypse, it seems that Evolution Studios has run out of tropical islands and country locations to stage a monster truck-flipping, nitro-smashing racing tournament.

So instead, this new driving challenge is set in rather unlikely surroundings - an urban city that’s currently being destroyed by a large-scale earthquake. What could be more riveting than darting around an asphalt road only for it to collapse into the ground and send you flying somewhere else? Certainly makes for an interesting change of scenery.

The signature Motorstorm racing mechanics remain, save for a few handling tweaks - pick a vehicle, run laps around a constantly changing track and use your nitro boost sparingly to get the advantage (over-use will see you explode in a most spectacular fashion). The almost completely abandoned city will throw some natural disaster curveballs at you, as well as some rather crazy renegades that will look to cause some destruction of their own.

Of course, when you’re done with the epic tournament racing you can engage with your friends in the local and online multiplayer modes. 16-player online racing, custom car sharing and additional abilities via perks and other features are just some of the ways that Motorstorm Apocalypse will keep you coming back for more.
