After a disappointing delay with an upcoming MotorStorm 2 video, OPM has released some confirmed information for fans of the series. Unlike the desert-riddled atmosphere that dominated the original MotorStorm title, MotorStorm 2 is set to take place in a lush tropical environment. This will bring in new exciting hazards such as deep water, trees, and other tropical expectancies.
As for the vehicle aspects, you can expect to see a monster addition to the series as monster trucks make their way alongside the ATVs and rally cars. Evolution Studios as also added in new driver intelligence that will cause drivers to try and avoid cartwheeling vehicles.
With an expected video to be made public shortly, the article states that it will be in full CG, but you shouldn't worry since that is how the original MotorStorm was displayed and everyone knows how that turned out in the end.
There is currently a countdown taking place on threespeech.com that is speculated to be the countdown for the MotorStorm 2 debut video. Whether this is true or not, only the countdown can tell, regardless, once the video is made live and is available to the public, we'll be bringing it to you front and center.

Heh, so it IS going to be CG. Thats sad. While I love the first motorstorm and it looks fablous, Its not what teh CG trailer showed in it's first outing.
Out of MS2 I hear we're getting 4player splitscreen. I also hope we get some more camera angles. One emulating the look from the driver's helmet looking at the steering wheel/road, one a bit closer to teh windshield than that and one just behind the driver's shoulder. :D That'd be awesome. DiRT has the camera systems down pat. They should learn from that. Would also like to see less random damage. I've done many a racer where one of my front wheels will catch something, snaping it and bouncing me in the air, but in the air... I explode in a mess of scrap metal... which is lame. I'm all for exagerated realism for fun but there's a point where it just becomes dumb.

Hmmm........I liked being in the desert, but the new location seems very interesting because now there's water

psn id: gingo.... @mlgacc..... CG stands for computer generated which just means its not gameplay but the first motorstorm trailer was in CG and the final game was extremely close so i wouldn't worry

Even though the ratiler is in Cg ( most game trailers are) we will still get a good look of what the gameplay will be like and the new tropical levels.

WTF!?, that was in 05. Why do they feel the need to do another cg trailer? Even with final hardware. This is what was postponed until this Wednesday? Ballin news.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOO this game is gonna ROCK!!!!!!, but one thing that needs to be changed, u know how in the 1st motorstorm, the AI racers would only take the route that their veichal does best on? (unless they missed a turn or watever) lets see some variety!
