Thanks to a sponsorship promotion from car manufacturer Scion, MotorStorm RC will be downloadable free of charge when it goes up on the PS Vita's online storefront tomorrow. The PlayStation 3 version of the game (also due tomorrow) will still cost $10.

The PS Vita version will be the complete MotorStorm RC, with 16 tracks in four settings. It will also have a variety of customizable RC vehicles including buggies, rally cars, big rigs, and monster trucks, as well as a Scion iQ exclusive to the portable.

Developed by series creator Evolution Studios, MotorStorm RC is a spin-off for the franchise, with the standard assortment of real-world vehicles replaced by remote-control counterparts. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of MotorStorm RC.
