Randomly selected European PlayStation 3 owners will be able to get their hands on an upcoming demo of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift previously thought to be exclusive to US gamers who bought an episode of PSN show Qore.

Next Thursday the demo will be made available to US gamers who have paid for Episode 4 for the Qore show (USD 2.99), but Sony has said that a number of PSN users on this side of the Atlantic will be emailed a voucher code to access the demo as well.

The demo is thought to include a single track from the game's Air Zone, with support for single-player and two-player split-screen racing.

Sony has already said that the demo will be made available for free a few days before the game's US release. Sony UK has told Eurogamer that this will also be the case in Europe.

For more on the game, check out our MotorStorm: Pacific Rift hands-on preview and the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Eurogamer TV Show, in which we journey to Evolution Studios and walk around and that.

Update, 2.42pm: Sony has told us that MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is not down for release in the US on 7th October after all, and should be out in November.
