After delaying the game in both Japan and Europe, Sony has now announced that MotorStorm: Apocalypse has been pushed back in the U.S.
Considering the setting – a post-apocalyptic region where earthquakes have destroyed much of the land – and the crisis that has afflicted the country of Japan, it's probably a good decision. Featuring a dynamic, ever-changing environment, a robust single-player mode and plenty of great multiplayer, the latest from Evolution Studios has a ton of promise. But as the company said:
"Similar to news already issued from our Japanese and European territories, SCEA can confirm that we are officially delaying release of MotorStorm Apocalypse from its scheduled April 12th date. We will provide more information regarding release timing at a later date."
When it does arrive, the game will boast five new vehicle classes, 40 races, and a four-player split-screen mode that's compatible with the online modes for up to 16 players. We doubt anybody is going to complain; we have plenty of other games to play, and plenty of reasons to have respect for what's happening out there.
