Sometimes stuff in the real world impacts the video games we love to play and such a thing occurred in the middle of last month after Japan was sadly rocked by two devastating natural disasters last month. Since incidents like earthquakes and tsunamis can be a touchy thing for some people, Sony opted to delay the North American and European release for Motorstorm: Apocalypse, which puts players directly in the middle of a destroyed city. Sony eventually released Motorstorm: Apocalypse in Europe at the end of March, but a North American date was still up in the air - that is until now.
Sony has revealed that Motorstorm: Apocalypse will finally be available to gamers who like to go wild on the road on May 3rd. Originally Motorstorm: Apocalypse was set to drop on April 19th but now we’ll only have to wait a few weeks to get our city based racing mayhem on. In addition to unveiling the release date Sony also announced that everyone who picks up Motorstorm: Apocalypse will receive a voucher for the Premier DLC pack which includes a new motorcycle and a racing coupe.
I enjoyed Motorstorm: Apocalypse when I played it nearly a year ago at E3 but supposedly the game has a few issues, or at least that’s what some European gamers are saying. I’m not sure if any of the issues with Motorstorm: Apocalypse will be addressed for its North American release (via a patch of course) but I’m just happy that the game is finally coming out since it’s going to be a blast in one way or another.
