Sony has confirmed the contents of the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift demo due to be distributed to Qore subscribers in the US and randomly selected European PSN users starting this Thursday, 11th September.

The track you get to play is Rain God Spires - an Air Zone track that takes you along a bumpy coastal mountain circuit with plenty of ups and downs to highlight the game's massive draw distance.

There's no online play in the demo, but you will be able to play it in two-player split-screen as well as single-player.

If the name sounds familiar, it should; Rain God Spires is a sort of sequel to Rain God Mesa, the mountaintop track that starred in the original MotorStorm demo and gave us our first glimpse of what Evolution's racing game - now series - has to offer.

Check out today's MotorStorm: Pacific Rift hands-on preview for a bit on Spires, and more on the Cascade Falls and Wildfire tracks, along with some of our observations about track layout in general, the game's visuals and the new monster truck.
