MotorStorm RC Driving to PS Vita for Free, Courtesy of Scion
Sony Director of Network Advertising David Winding has announced today that MotorStorm RC will be driving to PS Vita for FREE courtesy of Scion!
To quote: Back in November, we revealed that Evolution Studios was working on a new title, MotorStorm RC, which would be released in the US as a downloadable game for both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita.
The game received critical praise when it launched in the UK two weeks ago.
We think you'll agree that the wait was worth it, as we are pleased to not only announce that the PS3 version will be available beginning tomorrow separately for $9.99 ($7.49 for PlayStation Plus subscribers), but to also let you know that the PS Vita version of MotorStorm RC will also be available as a free download thanks to our partners at Scion.
That's right- for a limited time, the complete Vita MotorStorm RC game is available for download absolutely free - no additional purchases necessary!
Not only that, but you'll be able to drive a custom RC version of Scion's iQ which is exclusive to the PS Vita version of the game. And be sure to check out the plethora of downloadable content which will become available for purchase for both versions of the game tomorrow.
MotorStorm RC features 16 unique tracks spread across four extreme environments, including the dusty desert mesas of Monument Valley, the dangerous jungles of a Pacific Island, the icy tundra at the Arctic Edge, and the apocalyptic ruins of a destroyed urban city.
Players can conquer these environments in powerful radio-controlled vehicles, with hundreds of uniquely customized models to collect in 8 distinct categories: Buggies, Superminis, Rally Cars, Muscle Cars, Racing Trucks, Supercars, Big Rigs and Monster Trucks.
Visit the PlayStation Store on PS Vita tomorrow afternoon (Pacific time) to download your free game. And after you've taken the RC iQ for a spin in the virtual MotorStorm world, you can always check out this new vehicle in the "real world" at a Scion dealer near you. Enjoy!
More PlayStation 3 News...
Wow, that's pretty cool of them. I was actually thinking of buying this 'cause it reminds me of RC Pro-Am! Probably just dated myself a little..
So is the only for the US, or will we be able to grab it for free in Europe as well?
That's a good question... the news came from the US Blog and I checked the European one but didn't see similar news so if I had to guess it's just in North America but perhaps it will be posted on the EU one soon.
Well i've been waiting for this game and now that it's free i will download it (even though i was going to buy it). I've checked all day even from work on my ps vita and i still don't see it on the PS store guess Sony forgot to add the new content to the PS store figures Sony with their shenanigans.
Got it, played it, having issues with the controls (I think). Is it going to get easier with better vehicles? The scion you can play at first handles way too well for me to believe.
I got it, too. It's a nice game, the first free psvita game.
Rules on how to hide a big fail with a customer's gift. Hihi.
Who the hell was going to buy this game, lol.
It's funny you say that, because as soon as I saw it, I thought old school RC action, and reached for my wallet. Then I d/l it for free, played it, and am glad I waited. Too many gotchas nowadays.
i"m bored with the vita already, its almost been a week & i've only played with it a couple of times. if this thing isnt "homebrew enabled " soon, its gonna take more than free games to keep it afloat.
