As with automobiles, games nowadays often need a bit of work done on them even after they're in the hands of the customer. Sony is getting out the toolbox for MotorStorm, its PlayStation 3 demolition racer, and has promised that a patch will be released sometime in May.
On the European MotorStorm forums, community team coordinator "Lestrade" writes that an update for the game will be coming "in the next couple of weeks." The update will be free and is required to play the game online.
The patch, which bumps up the game to version 1.2, will address several issues, including a bug that allowed racers to exploit the boost, an increase in the size of the buddy list, better online performance, audio issues, and more. Full details of the patch are available in the forum post.
