Motorstorm Apocalypse – Click above to watch video after the jump

If Gran Turismo 5 has turned a bit stale for you, never fear. The crew behind the Motorstorm franchise has just what you need to wet your racing videogame whistle in the form of the new Motorstorm Apocalypse. The game takes all of the fender-bashing glory of the classics into a city in the throes of collapse. Players will not only have to contend with the other racers, but they'll have to square off against an environment that's hell-bent on destruction as well. It's like Mad Max on steroids.

Programmers have thrown in a heap of new vehicle classes on top of old favorites, and the single-player campaign brings a new level of story-telling to the party for the first time. Additionally, new online multiplayer content allows you to collect experience points to build your favorite racing machine, collect medals to show off and to unlock new vehicle perks to help you gain an edge over the rest of the field.

Sign us up.

You can check out a full trailer for the game after the jump as well as a few developer journals that take a closer look at both the multiplayer and the single player action. We think you won't be disappointed.

      I'm all for end of the world post apocalyptic things, too bad I don't have a PS3.

      I swear, its either Kevin Costner's fault, or that Choose Your Own Adventure book series I read as a kid, which started you out in a hot rod Mad Max style buggy/car, racing across the country(?) to save a girl.

      Looks like fun, but somehow I doubt that the GT5 crowd will care.

        Motorstorm is the Miller High Life of racing games... can't go wrong with that!

        Im part of the GT5 crowd but ive loved these Motorstorm games. And this one looks to be the best. The races cant be any more bland than Gran Turismo's, thats for sure.

      The graphics look a bit... crap really. And some of those environments look like they were lifted directly from Fallout New Vegas (around the 12 second mark especially)

      Looks like an exact copy of Split Second, or whatever that game is that has end of the world shenanigans whilst racing.

      With quite a few changes here and there, this would make for a decent modern day rebirth of Carmageddon.

        Carmageddon! YES!

        The second one rocked my socks back in my childhood. My older brother got me into it, of course. Never did play the ones after it, but Interstate 76 was sweet too.

      Meh. Without ordinance, it's just Junior Twisted Metal. Much prefer Forza3 virus for competitive carnage. My Focus RS got rammed by a q7 the other night and it was launched what must have been a solid 250 feet in the air, flipping improbably like a catapulted walrus.

      Then of course it landed and I was on my merry way...

      So, apocalyptic Burnout? With motorcycles?

      Looks like fun.
