MotorStorm PS3 Online Servers Restored By PSONE Fan Group
PSONE, the nonprofit that recently restored the Killzone 2 multiplayer servers for the PS3 first-person shooter, has once again woven its magic by restoring the online servers for another classic title for the console – Engine storm.
Developed by Evolution Studios and released in 2006 as a PS3 launch game, MotorStorm has seen its offline multiplayer experience since the early 2010s, meaning players have had to settle for single-player only, as there is a local multiplayer mode. .
However, PSONE has revealed that it is mangled to emulate Sony’s servers and create their own that players can connect to if they want to dive back into the multiplayer shenanigans of MotorStorm.
To access it you’ll need a PS3 and a copy of MotorStorm as usual, but a PS3 emulator will also prove to be sufficient. You must then modify the network settings of your console by changing the primary DNS to 220.127.116.11 and the secondary option to 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124.
These changes will allow MotorStorm to connect to PSONE’s servers rather than Sony’s now offline ones.
You can read our MotorStorm review here to see how it stacked up 15 years ago. The game spawned two sequels, those of 2008 MotorStorm Pacific Rift and 2011 MotorStorm Apocalypse.
Evolution Studios then worked on DriveClub for the PS4 after being sadly shut down by Sony, although much of its talent was later equated to Codemasters, where they developed the disappointing commercially Rush.
