Evolution Studios promises weekly Pacific Rift DLC

Stung into action, perhaps, by Criterion's marathon run of DLC packs for Burnout Paradise, Evolution Studios has announced it intends to give MotorStorm: Pacific Rift players something new (and possibly free) to chow on every week.
That's according to a post on the U.S. PlayStation Blog by Game Director Nigel Kershaw. "Once we're all rested it's back to the development bunker to finish off the DLC we have lined up for you guys in the coming months. We’ve got a pile of stuff waiting in the wings, and, you’ll be glad to know, a lot of it is free.
"We’re going to try and give you something new to play with every week, and we’ve also got some major packs in development that should be on the store after Christmas."
Pacific Rift is the equatorial follow-up to the full-throttle PlayStation 3 launch title. Comprising 16 courses scattered across four element-themed zones, it replicates the original's chaotic, visceral driving model but throws in water hazards, dense jungle vegetation and deadly lava. There's splitscreen multiplayer this time too.
The game's out today in North America, so get a few beers in, put your feet up and burn a little rubber. Europe gets it on November 7.

It's good to see them supporting there title even before it is released worldwide. I hope that there are more free packs than ones that'll cost you. I don't want to buy a pack every week.

My dad was a huge fan of the original. Even though he was absolutely terrible at it. He played the same race over and over until he came first, and i had to watch him as i was itching to slip COD4 into the ps3. I've already preordered this for my dad so it looks like i'm going to have to experience this all over again only i'll be itching to slip Resistance 2 into my PS3 instead. Did u hear that it got 9/10 in OPM! AWESOME! R2 IS A DAY ONE PURCHASE OR ME!

See what a trendsetting devs like criterion can do for us gamers? It makes other devs step their game up and now we will get DLC form evolution studios weekly including map packs down the road. The joys of friendly competition and we get to benefit from it all. Kudus to evo studios and criterion!!!

psn id: gingo.... as long as the DLC is top quality then it doesn't matter if it comes every week or not just as long as we see it quite regularly

WTF??? They better be free! I hope they don't milk this like they did the first motorstorm.
