News has recently leaked out of a third game of Sony and Evolution Studios PS3 racer, but now it’s official.

Titled MotorStorm: Apocalypse (the subtitle must be up there with Redemption and Vengeance as most overused gaming titles), the third game in the series is due out early next year and appears to be a rather refreshing take on the franchise. Below is a list of some of the confirmed new features:

– The game will take place in a fictional US city, which is very different from the previous two settings.
– It’s set over two or three days, with things starting out as a standing city and then progressing to rubble (you’ll see buildings collapsing and the environments changing as you race. Split/Second, anyone?).
– There’s three campaigns headed by different characters.
– People cause a nuisance to you: shooting at you, hanging onto your roof and even ramming your motor with their own vehicles.
– Online multiplayer perks similar to recent Call of Duty games.
– It’s possible to play four player split screen against twelve players online

It all sounds great and I have enjoyed the other games in the series, particularly Pacific Rift. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one!
