The demo came out last night for Qore subscribers and will be available to everyone in October. I put a question mark on some of the “cons” in the list below since I don’t know if these will be addressed in the full release or not.
Any racing fans care to comment on the demo?
I know that this news isn’t new, and I don’t think that this screenshot is even new, but seeing it today I got excited all over again that we’re finally gonna have a
next- this-gen racing game that supports four players. This is gonna rock for my friends and me. The last time we did any amount of 4 player racing was PGR2 on the original Xbox.
Remember that, in addition to 4 player splitscreen, this game will also offer many more tracks than the original MotorStorm did. And custom soundtracks! And trophy support!
I’d like to ask two things of the developer, though, if you’re reading this:
- Spread the on-screen graphics out a bit. They are getting in the way of seeing what’s actually happening. I know you do this because of overscan, but different sets have different amounts of overscan. Maybe you can make this adjustable? Or put the stats in a vertical column near the middle split?
- Put me in the beta! I want to play this! I want to play this with my friends! Pretty pretty please?
Mmmmmm. Four player racing next-gen goodness.
These videos looked a lot better to me than some other stuff I’ve seen. And I’m wondering what the guy means when he mentions special modes for splitscreen play…
Motorstorm 2 is due out in time for Christmas and moves the action away from the desert locale of the original. Gamers will be able to race around a lush island environment, full of interactive vegetation.
The game will feature four-player split-screen action, righting one of the obvious failings of the first game.
The title is some months away from completion but the game’s engine looked rock solid and the graphics were as impressive as one would expect from one of the best-looking racing franchises.
I hope there is rain in MotorStorm 2 and customisable soundtracks, not to mention a greater sense of speed.
