- Today Associate Product Marketing Manager Brian Dunn
has shared a video confirming that MotorStorm Apocalypse PS3 races to store shelves on May 3, 2011.
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 feel tight and the destruction is off the charts.
Toss in how pretty this game is and how impressed I am with 3D... (It) can't get here soon enough." Look for more reviews for the US launch to start hitting soon as we get closer to launch.
There's still plenty of time left before May 3 to pre-order your copy of the game and receive one of the exclusive Carbon Edition vehicles available. Choose from the supercar, rally car, or superbike.
Each exclusive vehicle also comes with a sticker decal pack to trick out your in-game vehicles with the deep vehicle livery editor, as well as a unique dynamic theme and set of PSN avatars.
We'll be posting more MotorStorm Apocalypse news between now and launch, including information about the upcoming demo and DLC plans, so stay tuned!
