This game is still Motor-storm at heart. They have added tonnes & tonnes of extras to the game to make it feel very fresh. Things like lava tracks, water jets for faster cooling, high air jumps all add extra strategy. It is not just driving fast. You have to try out all the alternative paths & choose right one based on boost & cooling requirements.

Product Overview

The first MotorStorm wowed fans with its heady formula of brutal, unpredictable off-road racing, festival vibes and stunning Monument Valley desert scenery. Now Motorstorm Pacific Rift takes you to a solitary tropical paradise in the Pacific Ocean, ready for a whole new take on no-holds-barred racing action through thick swamps, dense jungle, towering peaks and steaming volcanoes.

Not just pretty backdrops to the action, these environments take center stage in challenging players with everything in Mother Nature's arsenal. Thick mud, tangled undergrowth, swift flowing rivers, choking volcanic clouds and searing lava pools all test the drivers to their limits and beyond.

Expect a rich festival of off road racing, along with a host of game modes and rewards. It's brutal, dangerous, relentless, and unpredictable and more than a game - MotorStorm Pacific Rift is a way of life.

Cutting-Edge Artificial Intelligence: A.I. analyzes the race and surroundings and reacts in the most realistic manner possible.

Physics-Based Car Damage: Players will break and destroy a vehicle's parts and panels during collisions with other drivers as well as with objects in the environment.
Real-Time Track Deformation: Players will never experience the same lap twice as each vehicle will carve up the track in varying depths, making navigation of each lap different than the last.
Robust Multiplayer Racing Action: For the first time, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift offers players the opportunity to challenge friends offline with four player split screen racing. Additionally, players will be able to challenge others online in races of up to 20 vehicles.
Stunning Tropical Environments: Racing locations set amongst the lush jungle, emerald lagoons and towering peaks of a remote Pacific island.
