Alleged Motorstorm 3 screens reveal new setting, zombies

Over the weekend, French site PS3gen posted a clutch of blurry, washed-out screens that were reportedly leaked from an as-yet-unannounced MotorStorm 3 (and which appear to have since been removed). Assuming they're real, they reveal that MotorStorm's next setting will be a crumbling, ruined version of post-apocalyptic San Francisco.

That's already more immediately interesting than muddy cliffs or tropical islands (especially to us, considering most of us live in San Francisco), and it gets even more interesting when the shots unveil what appear to be zombies (or possibly just desperate wasteland survivors) for players to run over.

The shots also reveal collapsing buildings, which promise not only dynamic, epic-scale hazards...

... but also destructible courses with changing layouts (which isn't exactly anything new by itself, but it'll still be interesting to see what MotorStorm does with it).

Regardless of whether the shots are real (and this close to E3, it's extremely probable that they are), they've already got us excited to see what Sony will unveil next week. Expect to see them officially confirmed (or officially debunked) at the company's E3 press conference next Monday.

    Is it safe to say someone was watching Split/Second's development as well? We need more racers that throw chaos into the mix. That's why Cops in NFS works so well yet they forget to add them in their games now and days!

    jianmei51 is the first bot-spammer I have seen on this site in its entire history, and I sadly believe that he/she (it?) is just the first of many. EVERYONE MUST REPORT ALL OF jianmei51's COMMENTS AND GET THIS STUPID BOT OFF OUR BELOVED SITE! Also, I have always liked Motorstorm's physics, even if the new modes simply steal from so many other games(Split/Second, Road Kill(not sure about the name, but it was one of the first car games: it made the player run people over for points), etc.)/movies(2012, The Running Man, Death Race). NOTE: I understand that Motorstorm 3 (if it is exactly as depicted in these photos) doesn't ACTUALLY steal any ideas from any of these games, just borrows them and combines the best parts to create a new experience, but it still gets me a little pissed.
