MotorStorm Apocalypse: Multiplayer Q&A

With online multiplayer back in full swing, legions of MotorStorm Apocalypse owners are already enjoying this chaotic racer’s enhanced 16-player races. But not so long ago, we solicited your MotorStorm Apocalypse questions via Twitter and posed them to Evolution Studios Art Director Simon O’Brien to get the full story.

Jeff learned more about the artificial intelligence improvements, why a certain degree of “rubber-banding” is necessary for competitive races, how epic events mid-race can upset your carefully laid plans, and how MotorStorm Apocalypse takes its multiplayer cues from online shooters in the form of deeply customizable vehicles and races. O’Brien also details how players earn XP in the form of “Chips” that unlock new emblems, vehicle parts, and other customization options that affect your racing style — whether it’s sneaky and strategic or fiercely aggressive.

Have you tried MotorStorm Apocalypse online? What’s your favorite track and game mode so far? Let us know in the comments!

  • @yazter…thats one outstanding trophy score you have…congrats :)

  • I got the demo before the black out and i would say the game is great and cant wait to try multiplayer .

  • Going off of the topic, yeah it sucks that the store is still not up and it’s been almost a month. I have a PSP Go, and would like a new game, plus I have cards sitting by my PS3 system that have yet to be touched. Has anyone else had the problem with HOME that it won’t load any current save data? Has anyone else had problems clicking into Qriocity?

    Anyways, Motorstorm Apocolypse looks great. I loved the first in the series, but never played part 2. As for the online, why is it that the other players are always a minute ahead of you no matter what you do? Is there a cheat code I’m missing here…?!!!!!!!!

  • Well, add me if you like JLPfreak I have a lot of downloaded games.

  • Yeah come on Sony. Yeah the games are great but with no way to get them or try them out the press on the games isn’t really doing the games themselves any justice

  • I’m still waiting for a Jak and Daxter or a new Sly Cooper game to come out for the PS3

  • I’m just hoping they add more DLC since its taking a while like overall on the PS Store other than that I hope they could add a Demo for this game and Asura’s Wrath

  • Hey Sid, is it true the store is gonna be up tommorow? The 24th?

  • There’s an online site that says that the store will be up tomorrow, but….doubt it. Anymore, I’m just guessing that it will be up within the release of Uncharted 3 or sometime next year….better go out and get some cards!!!!

  • Wait Asura’s Wrath is 2012 my bad… there probably won’t be a demo

  • give me information the on the PS Store, i dont care about crap like this, you guys have been hacked twice in the last month good job=DDDD. i freaking bought my ps3 hoping this would be a turn around from xbox 360, i had it a week and u let yourselves get attacked?!?! do you know how badly i wish i could have returned my ps3 and all the games i bought and i got my 500 dollars back? but i didnt, i hoped and waited for sony to give me information and ya know what we get?? nothing. we get game time for lost games, thats fine. the playstation plus for a month, thats ok. and some mediocore free downloads from ps store? sony, i want REAL information not just “details will be out soon” on anything. is it really that hard to tell us ETA of anything? sony, you disappointed me. i really hope all of this is fixed within the next month or you can say byebye to my service to you.

  • I hope Evolution is planning on fixing the betting system. I shouldn’t get nothing because the person I bet against quit the race.

  • again your ETA is by the end of the month.

    Am I only one who didn’t have that wiped from memory? Full services restored by 3/31/2011

    that’s your timeline until sony says otherwise, Crying for more info isn’t going to make it happen any faster. Until they can say “it will be up now” or something happens where 3/31 is no longer possible, move on and enjoy the other parts of life.

  • Great game. I especially love playing the game on a 3d tv. I’m looking forward to trying it online in the not too distant future. Keep up this great series, I’ll buy every game you make.

  • OK EVERYONE ..AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THIS GAME SHOULD HAVE “LAP ELIMINATIONS” AND SEARCH LOBBIES!! ALSO I THINK IF THE CARS WERE A LITTLE MORE TOUGHER BECAUSE IM TIRED OF JUST GETTING TIPPED ON THE BACK AND SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL SMH..BESIDES ALL THESE FEW ERRORS THE MULTI PLAYER GAME PLAY IS VERY FUN – JUST NEED TO PICK THE RIGHT PERKS AND FIGURE OUT THE TRACK SHORTCUTS TO BE IN FIRST PLACE FOR ONCE..:P KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC WORK

    P.S I HOPE THE STORE IS BACK UP TODAY BECAUSE I CANT WAIT TO TRY OUT THE NEW CARS THAT WERE GIVING TO US FOR OUT 4 WEEKS OF OFFLINE PATIENTS..AS FOR THE PRE ORDER CARS I LOST MY RECEIPT IM GOING TO CALL GAMESTOP AND SEE IF I CAN GET A NEW ONE – FINGERS CROSSED :/

  • (sigh) still nothing on the psn store. thanks for the heads up. should we really have to get info from other sites regarding this? i think we SHOULD get all pertinent info from HERE. Alas to no avail.

  • i don’t think the store will be back up no time soon because we are not getting the map pack for call of duty when the pc gets it on the 2nd of june. now i know this is dumb liogic bit i figured treyarch figured why make a dlc for a network that is still down. that’s just my opinion. more than likely im wrong.

  • OMG PS STORE IS STILL DOWN! This is Outrageous I demand a date and Raisin why!!

  • i dont think they will give u a raisin. lol

  • Game looks nice. PlayStation blog is back baby!

  • that raisin can go with my “liogic bit” lol

  • No chance store will be up tommorow, they would have probably made a post on this blog already about it. I just hope i’m wrong but it’s not looking well…

  • i cant wait for the demo, tho i may just go out and buy this game tomorrow. this is the only racing game i like i had them all but i think some one stole the first one or was it the second one i forget but it got stolen amonst like 20 games that got stolen last year.
    my qeastion is, can u play online with ur friends or just online with every one?

  • Y YO QUE TENGO UNA CUENTA ARGENTINA Y TODAVIA NI PUEDO INICIAR SESION !!!!! PARA CUANDO VA A ANDAR AQUI EN ARGENTINA ???

  • It’s really frustrating to know that I have network cards I can’t return and can’t spend. I don’t care about the free games or playstation plus, all I want is the store. I see people defending you telling others they complain and such, but really? A month? No word except for the end of the month? You can’t do any better? And for those out there defending this silence, try playing something other then Black Ops. Not everyone out there wants to play that for the next week or two or three or however long it is going to take. Hurry before I start selling my stuff to pay for an XBOX.

  • Anyone know about a Sing Star Vol 3. I looked it up in Amazon and saw that one was released, as well as a Sing Star Motown and more. When are these Sing Star titles coming to the US?

  • quien sabe? lol

  • Quit crying about the psn the playstation store, and about Sony. If you don’t like it the go to another system. You spoiled punks need to realize kicking your feet and screaming will not work. They are not your mommy and daddy. Guess what kids you have to wait…..

  • @68
    U want a raisin? lol… spell correctly next time your on a rant.

  • And to everyone defending the X-Slack-Box. It’s kinda a ripoff to have to pay that kind of money each year to play, especially on a system that the network was down several years ago. Microsoft is pigs…they make people pay each year for Microsoft Word…I have a 360, and the games in the store lag, and I’m still trying to figure out the whole points card thing…why did they not make it even points? Why 1600? I love the playstation 3, but I can wait for the store…as long as it doesn’t take too much longer and it doesn’t go down again. Other than that, I’ve paid for Back To The Future and Free Realms. Unable to play Free Realms and unable to download the latest episode of Back To The Future. And…as soon as I got some cards, the outtage occured. OH WAIT….MOTORSTORM APOCOLYPSE LOOKS GREAT!!!!

  • I have Motorstorm Apocalypse and play it on a Panasonic Viera 50″ 600Hz 3D TV and let me tell you it is amazing. I I love this game. Multi player is a little glitchy at times but it’s a great game especially in 3D.

  • I’m getting very impatient now i want PS store back up and all i see is these articles and forums for games i don’t even play besides black ops and then u have the compensation giving us junky games that no one is going to play i think that Sony should give us any free game of our choice and i mean any like the new mortal kombat and give us some free things on PS home of our choosing not some 3 year old game that no one plays anymore anyways i just wanted to say this is starting to make me impatient

  • To Sony i have a question, for those of us who bought games right before and that are buying games now that have online gaming but we need to enter the online code before going online and we cant because the psn store is down or went down right before we put the code in, what can we do????

  • Thank you for adding custom soundtracks for both single and multiplayer, unlike KZ3 and Uncharted 2 -_-. Loving the game.

  • I just bought a Samsung 55 inch LED 3D TV and this game is hands down has the best 3D out of all the 3D games I own. Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 are amazing as well. If you have a 3D TV I highly recommend this game.

  • All I really want to know is when will the PS store be back up

  • To all those who are waiting till the PSStore is back up to D/L the demo…. Dont wait, go out and get the game NOW !!!! The gameplay is great, the graphics ditto. Online with 16 other ‘Stormers’ going for it is awesome with thrills and spills aplenty. Sure there needs to be some updates to fix the “betting scandal” when a player you bet against quits and we DEFO need a search lobbies feature and the ability to have your own custom soundtracks in single player mode would be cool.
    Apart from these small errors (which I’m sure could easily be addressed), the game is fantastic so why are you waiting ?? Go get it, get online and start crushing the little guy..

  • well i guess if u buy the game u wont need the demo…. but that still doesnt make it right. thats my raisin…lol

    Get your Portable ID!

  • went get this game

  • I might actually buy this game, it looks great!

  • You know, Sony is working on the store, if they wanted to, they could take online gaming away from us. Everybody should learn to cope with what is happening with the Playstation Store instead of spamming about it on a blog post that has NOTHING to do with the playstation store. Another thing is, have you noticed, that EVERYBODY is asking about the PS store? Its like on EVERY SINGLE blog post I see a comment saying “When is the PS store gonna be up” your just annoying Sid because I bet your not even reading about all these AWESOME games, all you care about it the PS store, so just a quick note to the people who are doing this: SHUT UP!

  • Please STOP talking about the PSN Store there is NO point.Its just dumb that everyone keeps talking about it they dont have it put it back up if they dont want. All they have to do is give you onlinegameing and software updates on the games you buy. Yes i know that they make most of there money off the Store but they dont have TO PUT IT UP.And they dont have to give anyone free stuff!!! Just chill out play some games online go find a game you would never play and try it out GET SOME FRIENDS ONLINE AND PLAY. They will let us all know when its going to be back up.Allso SONY has to get a ok to put its Store back up if you dont know why then you need some help. Im going to play Brink,KZ3,and COD:B Ops just to play and have fun thats why i bought my system.It will be UP WHEN SONY WANTS IT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Add me if ur playing these games PSN OVERDOSE665
