The update will take place from 15:00 BST (07:00 PST) on Wednesday 22nd June 2011 - today. Known as the "After Party", the update improves and expands the unique action-racing experience of 'Wreckreation' mode.
More details are coming via PlayStation.Blog today
The Rock - A new track featuring day and night courses on classic off-road terrain; Available to play throughout Wreckreation.
Special Event Packs - A series of additional Special Events which will be available to download for free from PlayStation®Store in coming weeks. The first is included in the After Update itself.
Weekly Challenges - A unique Rookie, Pro and Veteran event is available to take on every week and successfully beating the target will earn a bonus chip reward.

Firstly, and importantly, the update coincides with a major upgrade to the online play servers and leaderboard database. This upgrade will improve the quality of online play, connectivity between races and the integrity of leaderboard posts: Any incorrectly posted times discovered will be systematically removed from the leaderboards after the update. It also paves the way for player profiles to be added to motorstorm.com and for variability in the matchmaking playlists. A new playlist will be made available following the update to introduce limited vehicle selections every other race.
Several of the vehicle classes (Superbikes, Supercars, Dirt Bikes, Muscle Cars, Racing Trucks and ATVs) have been re-tuned, with improved performance for more competitive races. The changes have been carefully considered for balanced racing between the 13 vehicle types and 40 multiple-route races, and then put through their paces in rigorous rounds of testing. As ever though, we'd appreciate your thoughts when you get the update.
Shortly after 15:00 (07:00) BST today, a prompt to download and install the update will appear when the game is started from the XMB™ when connected to PlayStation®Network. Installation of this update is required to access online play.
Players who are already playing the game online will need to re-start the game and install the update in order to continue to enjoy the full experience of MotorStorm Apocalypse. There may be interruption to online play experienced by players who continue to play online without updating the game. In such circumstances, it is strongly recommended that the game is re-started and the update is installed. In any case, it's worthwhile re-starting the game and updating your game as soon as possible.
Please spread the word.
