The recent disasters that hit Japan delayed Motorstorm Apocalypse from its original release date, but Sony has decided it's time the game hit store shelves.

Sony has announced via the PlayStation Blog that MotorStorm Apocalypse will be racing, crashing and exploding into stores in North America from May 3. To say "thank you" for everyone's patience, every new copy of the game will come with a voucher for the Premier Pack DLC bundle, which includes two vehicles "and more," apparently.

Sony would also like to remind everyone that you can still pre-order the game and receive one of the Carbon Edition vehicles for free. These packs include not only a car for use in the game, but also some designs which can be attached to any other in-game vehicle as well as a dynamic XMB theme and PSN avatar.
