Motorstorm: Pacific Rift game update in-depth and new DLC

Submitted by on Wednesday, 13 May 20093 Comments

motorstorm_PRWe told you about the new game update on Tuesday, but a new blog post on the PlayStation Blog goes in depth on what’s new in the Motorstorm: Pacific Rift patch.

Not only that but it also announces some new downloadable content to be hitting the PlayStation Store.

A new downloadable pack will be released every Thursday for the next eight weeks starting tomorrow. Each download will add new paint jobs designed by the team for three vehicles.

By the end of the eight weeks, every vehicle in the game will have an alternative paint job thanks to the DLC. You may be expecting Sony to thump a price tag on top, luckily for us it’s all free!

We briefly talked about Microbadges last time, but now we have more information on them. When you are in a race, you will see the badges that other players have unlocked below their names.

Just because you have more badges doesn't make you better

You can unlock them from completing exercises such as completing the Pacific Rift festival with all Gold medals.

You can show off your favourite three badges from the start, with three more additional slots available for allocation when progressing through the online ranks.

In total there are 40 to unlock so after you have them all, you will be spoilt for choice to which ones to show-off.
