MotorStorm update in May

Pit-stop ahoy.

Dirty racer MotorStorm will be pulling into the pits in May for a catalogue of minor fixes.

The most significant change is to the player ranking system, where some people were apparently exploiting a bug and being falsely listed. The cheats. And because of this Sony and Evolution are having to reset the entire leadberboard after the fix to ensure it's fair and accurate.

Online stability is also being looked at, and Game Status is being added list in the lobby so that you join games and race more promptly. There's also going to be an auto-start feature added, fixing a start time for races to cut-down on waiting around in lobbies.

Those of you who are popular will now enjoy a bigger friends list of 50 people, and there's a flurry of other minor bug fixes and tweaks.

MotorStorm launched alongside the PlayStation 3 in Europe. It's a great big muddy mash-up of a racing game where you'll smash and crash and bash and dash.

Treat yourself to our MotorStorm review for more information.
