Dogged by a number of delays, Evolution Studio’s third console instalment of the MotorStorm series is set to launch in America on May 3rd. Originally planned for a March release, Apocalypse was unfortunately forced to push back due to in-game content which proved hard to swallow after last month’s catastrophic earthquake in Japan. The latest iteration takes place in a ruined city which is due to be struck by another quake at any moment. Seeing this as a golden opportunity to push themselves to the limit, MotorStorm’s legion of lunatics take to the streets in a no-holds racing tournament.
It’s hard to predict the extent to which the delays will damage the game’s reception. Although it received a number of stellar review (with our own commendation too,) Apocalypse barely managed to make an impact on the UK sales chart. Hopefully it will do better when it launches across the pond in a few weeks.
