Early images may have leaked not too long ago, but the PlayStation Blog has today officially announced MotorStorm: Apocalypse for the PlayStation 3.
Set in a fictional location simply dubbed 'The City', MotorStorm: Apocalypse has you racing in the middle of just that; an apocalypse. Buildings and structures will crumble and collapse in real time under nature's wrath, littering the tracks with debris and dynamically shaping the racing path. But that's not all; when you return to a race a building that has collapses will stay collapsed, with even more paths and destruction occurring in replays, making sure every race stays unique unless you choose to go back.
Players will be able to fully customise their vehicles from a number of vehicle parts and special vehicle perks, taking them online to either share their creations, or race with up to 15 additional people. Persistent stat tracking and online awards will give you the recognition you deserve, and if playing online isn't your cup of tea you can always sit down to 4 player split screen, which itself can be taken online too.
On top of all this, there is a Game Creator Mode which allows you to tweak and alter your own gameplay and victory settings for a much more personalised race, which can then be taken into tournaments and played online.
There is much more to be revealed about MotorStorm: Apocalypse, so stay tuned to PALGN during E3 2010 for the latest scoops.
