Sony has announced that PS3 exclusive MotorStorm: Pacific Rift will be released in the UK on 7th November.

The Evolution Studios-developed racer transports the game's rally/ATV/motorbikes/monster truck mashup from the original game's Monument Valley to a new island location full of volcanoes, rivers and jungle.

It's got 16 beefy tracks, introduces monster trucks and up to four-player split-screen play, and allows you to cool off the vehicles' fearsome boost by driving through the surf or pools of water.

As with the original, Pacific Rift also features online racing, this time for up to 16 racers.

There's a demo on the PlayStation Store now, featuring the Rain God Spires track (for single-player or two-player split-screen), if you fancy trying before you buy, and you can find various previews, screenshots and videos on the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift gamepage.

Check back for our review very soon.
