MotorStorm Apocalypse Monster Update: Mode Editor, Steering Wheels and Move

Daimion Pinnock's Avatar + Posted by Daimion Pinnock on Aug 11, 2011 // Producer, SCEA

MotorStorm Apocalypse

Hello, my fellow MotorStormers! The racing party at the end of the world recently introduced a hot new track and fresh Weekly Challenges for you to play. Now, I’m excited to be able to bring you news of another larger-than-life update, which will empower you to create, share and get much more out of your action racing experience than ever before.

To get this latest update, simply fire up MotorStorm Apocalypse while connected to PSN and you’ll be prompted to download the update.

Design Your Own Game Modes

The new Mode Editor allows you to create your own fun game modes within the MotorStorm template and then play them straight away with other players (online and offline).

The possibilities are vast: Tweak the standard Race mode so that vehicle attacks are disabled…or set-up a five-round Eliminator mode, on mirrored tracks, for 15 Monster Trucks and 1 Buggy, with moon gravity, infinite boost and no brakes…or do something completely unexpected – we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

MotorStorm Apocalypse

Share Your Customized Vehicle

Customize and share your proudest vehicle designs with your friends via motorstorm.com, and download any that you like the look of from the website to apply to any of the vehicles in your collection – they automatically work across all vehicle types.

Sharing your personalized vehicles is simple: upload them from MotorStorm Apocalypse to your personal Profile area on motorstorm.com and other players can view them immediately. Downloading shared vehicles from other players is just as easy: find one you like the look of on motorstorm.com, sign in with your PSN Online ID and download it – it will be waiting for you when you next go into Customization in the game!

Up Your Game With a PS3 Steering Wheel or PlayStation Move

PlayStation Move controllers and certain PS3 steering wheels are now fully supported in MotorStorm Apocalypse (including customizable configurability options), so you can get even closer to the racing action with a more tactile and realistic control set-up.

I’ve been lucky enough to experience the game using a Logitech G27 force feedback wheel, on a 3DTV with surround sound set-up, and I can honestly say it’s the most exhilarating gaming experience I’ve ever had. Pumping the accelerator and gripping the wheel as you drift your muscle car through a tight city corner at break neck speeds feels incredible, and when an apocalyptic earthquake aftershocks kick in and tears open the ground beneath your wheels – while you’re trying to avoid gangs of crazy looters and rivals throwing their weight around in monster trucks – it ups the ante even more. If you can, you absolutely must experience MotorStorm Apocalypse like this. Words just don’t do it justice.

Supported steering wheels include: Logitech G25, Logitech G27, Logitech Driving Force GT and Logitech Driving Force Pro.

Further Improvements to Online Play

In response to continued feedback from MotorStorm players, the update also includes additions and improvements such as; new racer ‘clan tags’, changes to gambling (bets are now won when a rival is disconnected or disqualified), and changes to lobby privacy (so that private rooms can only be joined by invitation).

Stay Up to Speed With MotorStorm Wherever You Are

The community website has also been updated to include player profiles which show off player activity, stats, performance over the last 10 races and shared vehicle designs. The update also includes a mobile version of the website which lets you use an internet enabled mobile device to keep up to speed with the latest MotorStorm activity (and your friends) wherever you are.

There’s a lot here to keep you rocking the party at the end of the world! If you’d like to keep up with the latest on Apocalypse, or learn more about the game, make sure to keep tabs on motorstorm.com. Thanks for your time – Cheers!

REALLY? support for those old *** wheels and none for THE BEST DAMN WHEEL ON THE PS3, the T500rs? BEST PS3 wheel. HANDS DOWN. BOTTOM LINE. but NO support for it, why? is it because it’s GRAND TURISMO’s OFFICIAL wheel? i have both msa and gt5, and believe you me, theyre in two completely different classes and NOT in competition with each other. if anything, support for the t500 should bring in new players and more revenue. wow, i just dont get it, no support for the BEST product but support for the low end trash (yes, i said that because those wheels ARE trash compared to the T500).. thats like the nba not supporting nike or jordan but supporting air-walks and pro keds!

NIIIIIICCCEEEEE, I just got the game I can’t stop playing!!! Just wow!

I can’t say why but I hate the demo, but since I loved MS1&MS2 I still bought this one, and wow, I’m so amazed! The demo isn’t showing much but the game is really fun, it’s so impressive to play this on a nice TV! =D

A must own for all Motorstorm fans around the globe!! ^_^

Anyone know how the Move controls are supposed to work? I downloaded the update… and it activates my Move controller when I fire up the game, but for the life of me I can’t get it to do anything beyond that point. I don’t see any control options for Move, it doesn’t just automatically work. I’m confused.

at 61 , i think i read somewhere that this update paves the way for the playstation move controller support but it wont be compatible with the controller right away , i think we will get another update to make it fully compatible

+ KeefRiffards on August 13th, 2011 at 11:57 am said:

The whole Move support thing is misleading, at least until they patch it in for real…I did the same thing as 61, then came back on here to see what was up with it. Still though, talk about great support for a game post-release! This is how it should be done all across the board, take note developers!

Thanks for the update.

Great game and I’m hoping the Move support is enabled soon.

Like a few others here, I tried it but other than the ball of the Move flashing, nothing else worked.

Keep up the great work !

So I’ve been out of town for a few weeks, so haven’t had a chance to play with the new update until tonight. Not too impressed with the Wheel changes. I bought this game the day it came out, and have been playing it since then with my Driving Force GT, it has always worked, and i loved it. But now, even with the Force feedback up to 100% in the settings, its not nearly as tight as it was before the update. I guess I’ll get used to it, but I’m rather dissapointed.
