...and MotorStorm Apocalypse feels (and looks) fine!

Sony has unveiled the next installment in the MotorStorm series and the racing festival is now headed for the city. The new game outs a slightly urban spin on things and pits racers in an abandoned and devastated West Coast city... in which Mother Nature isn’t finished wrecking. The Official Sony PlayStation Blog ays to make sure that you don’t describe it as post apocalyptic; this is the Apocalypse and you will be racing while it happens!

You will witness the crumbling and shattering of the Earth as you race... all in real time. The tracks will be, literally, ripped to shred and your racing routes will change on the fly. The blog lists the following key points regarding the new game:

-16 player online
-4 player split-screen
-Combinations of the two; Play with three friends in the living room against 12 more online
-Massive vehicle customization; Change vinyls, vehicle parts, vehicle shapes and more. Upload them to the community site and share them with others. They automatically work on all vehicle types, and include your PSN ID
-Vehicle perks. Modify your handling, boosting and offensive abilities as you unlock new perks.
-A wealth of rankings to progess through online with associated rewards and recognition.
-Stacks of online rewards to earn and persistent progress giving the most determined and successful racers the status and recognition they deserve.
-Persistent matchmaking. Keep your party together throughout your gaming session.
-Game Mode Creator. From a completely blank canvas you can design your own game rules and victory conditions, play them online, and incorporate them into tournaments.

The game will include all of that and more. MotorStorm Apocalypse will be revealed in its entirety next week but you can check out some of the first official shots of the game below:
