MotorStorm: Apocalypse Game Given New UK Release Date

PlayStation 3 owners everywhere were possibly left feeling slightly disappointed last week, after Sony Computer Entertainment announced that the much-anticipated MotorStorm: Apocalypse game had been delayed following the devastating events that happened in Japan the week beforehand.

At the time Sony said that although the MotorStorm: Apocalypse game — which is set in an earthquake-ravaged fictional city in the US — had been shipped into the channel, they had chosen to postpone its UK launch. However, according to, the game has now been given a new UK release date.

The PS3-exclusive, which has been delayed in several other countries besides the UK, was originally meant to release in the UK on March 17th, but the game will now arrive on Thursday, March 31st. So UK gamers don’t have too much of a wait to pick up the racing title.

There is no word at this stage of any other new release dates, but we’ll keep you all informed if we do hear anything. As mentioned in our previous article, it wasn’t just the MotorStorm: Apocalypse game’s release that was affected by the recent events in Japan, as Yakuza: Of the End game was also postponed.
