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!

  • moderate the truth you are all liars and dont give a dam about US… THE PLAYSATION COMMUNITY

  • “NONE of these blog posts have ANYTHING to do with the store”
    thats EXACTLY the problem.

    millions of dollars is nothing to a company like sony. thats like you losing $5

  • E-Fight!!! I love angry trolls. They take their videotoys way too seriously.

  • go act superior somewhere else

  • I read on a few websites that the psn store will be back up tomorrow… the 24th is this true or not?

  • Havent been able to activate my online access for mortal kombat 9 yet

  • @156
    Then you haven’t tried…kombat pass is waived and you can play online mortal kombat just fine.

  • no one really knows. all we have is 2 rumors; 24th and 31st, and “soon”

  • @Nergil Well what did you pay for the system,and the game you are talking about they dont have to let you download the DLC it was Free you payed for the game you have right now and thats all they have to give you. Just saying not try to start anything its just most people think that they intitled to things that they did not pay for everyones just got to wait for the Store to come back and if it doesnt then we still have onlinegameing for Free. Thank SONY for not making us pay to play like XBox. Think about it if you had to pay to play online and the PS3 went down i think people would be just alittle more pissed off about that.

  • *sigh* and yet another worthless update to me i care not about the games your advertising im one of the many who just want the Store back up and im tired of the “when the final details are in we’ll tell you” excuses if anyone replies will you guys at least the Store with DLC that shouldave been released during the outage once its back up

  • @OVERDOSE665
    Yeah I understand that…but I did pay for the games in my download list that I can’t access…I also paid for psn plus but they’re making up for that so that’s fine. I get your argument, but some of us actually do have alot invested in the store itself…my completely packed hard drive will attest to that.

  • I DON’T GET THE LOGIC OF TYPING IN ALL CAPS? AM I MORE IMPORTANT NOW?

    no, just more annoying and easier to realize skip this comment

  • I can’t wait to PLAY THE DEMO OF IT.

    Get it? Because the store needs to be working for me to play the demo..

  • @117 yes and it has the best 3D out of the 6 3D games I have. Followed closely by Killzone 3 and Crysis 2

  • overdose is dumb….why is it that sony products cost about 20% more….im betting its not cause we like paying more. the notion that the psn is free is a garbage…everything for sony playstation costs more than other consoles im betting thats how they pay for the psn. stop being a sony fanboy you MORON

  • overdose is dumb

  • apparently overdose is dumb

  • @Nergil Yes i have a 500GB hard drive in my PS and i only have 100GB left i cant play all the games i download i feel you on that point.Its just we have to wait they did say it will be up by the 31 this month and if its not then i think people should get on them about it they said that the the system will be fully operational (dont know if i spelled that right ) by the 31st. Well i got to get out of the fourms for the day my kids are bugging me to play Mortal Kombat. So we all should just wait till the 31st and then complain about it and call and whatever thats all im going to say about this anymore. Add me OVERDOSE665 if ur playing Brink,KZ3,COD:B Ops, and Mortal Kombat or any other FPS

  • WHERE IS THE STORE!!!

  • Wow im Dumb thats great sorry but i dont fight with little kids over the internet hahaha this is funny.

  • @ 99 (Lord_ka1n)

    they told you and eveyone else last month that the psn store would be up by the end of this month, and they have never ever said anything to the contrary, i mean seriously do you stamp your feet in july because it isnt christmas yet?
    your posts only shame you, if you listened to the press confrence last month or bothered to read the blog post that sony have made then you would already know this. stop typing and start reading.

  • @Overdose

  • UUUUUUUUMMMMMMM Im in contact with the PS Store from the afterlife. UUMMMMMM. It says …it says…..you will still get the Welcome Back package as promised (everybody knows that). But wait…..it also says to look under your…..what?…..couch?……Yes. Under your couch and you’ll find ………… 3 $100 Playstation cards courtesy of Sony. The Store also said not to question how it got there or it will not happen. Wait…..there’s…more? Tomorrow? the store will be up? It also says……LA Noire….free….copy….shipped?……No….the spirit is fading…. ohhh well guess we’ll have to wait and see. LMAO

  • Can we have are Store back?

  • @157 Oh okay i didn’t even know that was the online waived also for dc universe online? i have a friend that got that game and he couldn’t activate it

  • Can we have the PSN Store Update because I want are PSN Store back?

  • Don’t necessarily think I want to wait until the 31st. And other then those few posts forever ago saying the end of the month, nothing more has been said except “soon.” No reassurance that it is still going to be or anything.

  • @187 learn better english… but yeah we all want the store back… hopefully the rumors of it coming back up tomorrow are true… i want my back to the future eps 3, & 4 that i paid for lol

  • where on this site did they say that?

  • @ 184
    now yours is a genuine complaint, i too would be furious if all the things id bought had gone, all my dlc and everything is still on my ps3 as are the dlc of many of my friends, yours sounds like an isolated case and if true sucks. lol everyone crying about the store also sucks and they are just chatting bubbles. have a good one

  • Hmmm… I just found out that Sony is going to report results for fiscal year 2011 this Thursday, and that their new fiscal year will end March 31, 2012…

    Hmmm… are they waiting to turn on the PlayStation Store the day that fiscal year begins to maximize the start of a fiscal year; hence the reason the PlayStation Store will be back up around March 31st as stated in a previous letter from Sony.

    Things that make you go hmmmmmmm…

  • @ 190
    the 2nd in command at sony said that in a press confrence in front of the world. go find it, im not doing your homework too. lol

  • Well at least the Mavs play tonight!!! VAN GUNDY!!!!! Hahaha

  • @ 192
    that really does make ya think

  • I cant bealive it, sony worked hard to get PSN back online, and people are saying such stuff like neglecting etc

    And how many more times does sony need to say Playstation store will be back online soon…

  • you mean that video from the 14th? he just said “as soon as possible” theres nothing on this site saying by the end of the month, theres just a stupid rumor

  • “soon” means nothing. we need a date, or even a month.

  • My bad meant to say “May 31st as stated in a previous letter from Sony.” on post 192

  • Plese anyone from sony, could you answer this important question: A guy who call himself Jeff Couzan is telling everyone that he works from sony and sending everyone a msj via PSN “if you send this messaje at least 25 people you win 50$ in your PSN Store wallet” (or something similar).

    So my Question is: ¿is this kind of spam normal in PSN?, and ¿this can be true in any chance?
