MotorStorm RC is the latest installment in the MotorStorm series for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita, downloadable via PlayStation Store. The game features remote-controlled vehicles, rather than the full-size vehicles as of the previous titles. There are 16 tracks set in the locations of the four previous MotorStorm titles. Many of the RC vehicles in the game are based off of models from previous games. This game also features "Pitwall", an online feature where new lap times or records are posted.

On the 19th December 2012, a Complete Edition was released, featuring all extra downloadable vehicles.

Game ModesEdit

In addition to the classic game modes, such as Festival, Wreckreation, and Multiplayer, MotorStorm RC also has an exclusive game mode called Playground.

Race TypesEdit

There are four different types of race events in MotorStorm RC.

RaceEdit

Normal, lap-based race. Medals are awarded on the player's finishing place e.g. 3rd = 1 medal, 2nd = 2 medals, 1st = 3 medals.

Hot LapEdit

The player is given an unlimited number of laps in order to beat 3 set lap times, each with increasing difficulty.

DriftEdit

Muscle Car-exclusive events. The player must gain a certain number of drift points within 3 time limits.

PursuitEdit

The player must overtake a set number of opponents, within three increasingly difficult time limits, in order to win.

There are a total of 26 tracks in MotorStorm RC (including the DLCs). They are as below:

TriviaEdit

  • Some of the cars in the trailer can be seen with glow rims.
  • This is the first of the series to include cross-platform multiplayer between the PS3 and PS Vita.
  • This is also the first game in the series not to feature boost, nor do vehicles have damage physics.
  • Bikes, ATVs, Superbikes, Choppers, and Mud Pluggers do not appear in this installment of the MotorStorm franchise. Two-wheeled RC vehicles would have to deal with the issue of balance which, since they are not being ridden, would be drastically amplified, while RC ATVs are deemed impossible without a rider figure. RC Mud Pluggers would probably be too similar to the RC Racing Trucks to warrant the addition of another vehicle class.
  • The vehicles themselves also handle extremely different from the previous games, having a much tighter turning radius, a common characteristic of RC vehicles.
  • The concept art for the track Sandstorm features an airstream caravan/trailer at the trackside.
  • A lot of cars have gone through class changing processes, e.g. the Castro Conquistador has gone from Racing Truck to Muscle Car, the Monarch Claymore has gone from Mud Plugger to Racing Truck, the Italia Strano has gone from Rally Car to SuperMini, The Patriot Renegade has gone from Rally Car to Supercar, and the Ozutsu Tanto has gone from Racing Truck to SuperMini.
  • This is the first game of the series to get an "E" rating from ESRB.
