Evolution pledges MotorStorm 2 DLC

"A lot of it is free."

Evolution Studios is planning to follow up the release of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift with a range of downloadable content, including "a lot" of free add-ons for the PS3-exclusive racer.

That's according to game director Nigel Kershaw, writing on the US PlayStation Blog, who said that once everyone's back from holiday "it's back to the development bunker to finish off the DLC".

"We've got a pile of stuff waiting in the wings," he wrote, "and, you'll be glad to know, a lot of it is free. We're going to try and give you something new to play with every week, and we've also got some major packs in development that should be on the store after Christmas."

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is due out in the US today, and will be released in Europe on 7th November. We enjoyed pounding through it earlier this month, but ultimately it fell short of its predecessor. You can find out why in our MotorStorm: Pacific Rift review.

Still, as you'll know if you enjoyed the first game, anyone who has their heart set on Pacific Rift should be well serviced by DLC, as Evolution was responsible for around a dozen infusions, as you can see in our History of MotorStorm feature from back in February.
