MotorStorm: Pacific Rift
3D version of PS3 off-road racer due for release this week through PlayStation Network

Sony will release a cut-down 3D version of PS3 off-road racer MotorStorm: Pacific Rift through the PlayStation Store this week.

MotorStorm 3D Rift will be available as a download from PlayStation Network tomorrow, 25th August, according to Simon Benson of the SCEE 3D Team on the PlayStation Blog. He didn't mention a price.

The release, which appears to be neither a free demo nor a full game, presents 10 tracks from 2008's Pacific Rift in 3D if you have a 3D-compatible TV and matching 3D glasses.

There are ten "unique" events, one for each track, and four classes of vehicle available: bikes, buggies, racing trucks and monster trucks.

MotorStorm developer Evolution is working on a new game in the series, MotorStorm Apocalypse, which will feature full 3D support and launch in 2011.
