MotorStorm: Pacific Rift has received its second major update, adding several new features to the game. The upload is over 400MB in size dispite such a small increase in the version number. The update adds 40 unique Microbadges for every player to collect, brand new selection of ranked races and more (details below). You can update your copy of the game by booting up MotorStorm.
- 40 unique Microbadges for every player to collect.
Earn them for a wide variety of accomplishments and show them off to every other racer online!
- Sugar Rush short-cut removed.
The short-cut to the left of the “keep right” arrows going into the sugar field was not intentionally included and has been removed.
- Sugar Rush respawn point fixed.
Crashing at a certain point on the track no longer respawns the vehicle in a generous position.
- Additional fixes and improvements to gameplay.
As for what those additional fixes and improvements are, posters on the US PlayStation forums have so far found:
- Brand new selection of Ranked Races.
Newly randomised selection of vehicles in online Ranked Races, including races on Riptide where it doesn’t rain!!!
- 3-Lap Races and 1-Lap Sprints.
Now some Ranked Races will be 1 and 3 laps instead of the conventional 2.
- Brand new Never-Ending Races.
Now in some Ranked Races you can start on Lap 0 and never have to finish! Great for racing your best friends for life!
- Race-Over Screen.
After you finish a Ranked Race, you will be taken to a new “Race Over” screen. Wait for “Exit” to appear to see how your Ranked % was affected.
- View Microbadges whilst racing Online.
Press L3 as many times as you can and eventually your opponents’ Microbadges will be displayed below their PSN ID.
