Back in November, word spread about Evolution Studios working on a new title, MotorStorm RC, which would be released in the US as a downloadable game for both the Playstation 3 console and the Playstation Vita.
Two weeks ago, it was released in the UK and it garnered a whole lotta love as those who had bought and tried out the game thought it was well worth it. SCEA (Sony Computer Entertainment America) announced earlier today that the PS3 version of the aforementioned game would be available in the PS Store for $9.99 (if you’re a Playstation Plus subscriber, it would only cost you $7.49).
Now, here comes the good news–especially if you’re a Vita owner like your’s truly: The PS Vita version of MotorStorm RC will be available, thanks to Scion, in the PS Store as a free download.
Yes, you read that right. This awesome racing game is available for free. For Vita users. But only for a limited time. And no, we aren’t talking about the demo of the game. That limited-time free download is a freakin’ full game–no additional purchase necessary! You’ll also be able to drive a custom RC version of Scion’s iQ which is an exclusive to the Vita version of the game. DLCs will also be available tomorrow (or later today, depending on what part of the world you’re at).
MotorStorm RC features 16 unique tracks spread across four extreme environments, including the dusty desert mesas of Monument Valley, the dangerous jungles of a Pacific Island, the icy tundra at the Arctic Edge, and the apocalyptic ruins of a destroyed urban city. Players can conquer these environments in powerful radio-controlled vehicles, with hundreds of uniquely customized models to collect in 8 distinct categories: Buggies, Superminis, Rally Cars, Muscle Cars, Racing Trucks, Supercars, Big Rigs and Monster Trucks.
Note that this free game is also only available to US and Canadian PSN account holders.
