Pacific Rift is the second installment of the best-selling
PLAYSTATION 3 brutal off
road racer leaves Monument Valley for a Pacific island of dense jungle,
thick swamps, towering peaks and steaming volcanoes. There are 16 multi-route
tracks to tear up with all the vehicle classes from the first MotorStorm:
ATVs, rally cars, buggies, motorbikes, race trucks, mudpluggers and Big
Rigs, as well as the newly arrived monster trucks. That's why when the
game makers needed the sounds of a monster truck they came to the Swamp
Thing 4x4 team and recorded the truck over many times and different conditions
at its home testing ground. The game has a playable demo on Playstation-Store
and the full game is released: 7th Nov 2008

8/07/2008- Swamp Thing 4x4 and the Slingshot team had a splashing time at Truckfest South West. It rained most of the weekend and the arena was like a mud bath. Both Trucks went out on both days, the weather wasn't stopping them. The fans were amazed with both Slingshot & Swamp Thing 4x4 Jumping the cars and throwing mud around the arena.
17/06/2008-The Swamp Thing 4x4 team had a great time in Yorkshire over the weekend. It's been a few years from the last time we were there. The weather over the weekend was sunshine and showers. It rained every time when we went out and with long grass it was very slippery but that never stops us. The fans were amazed with both Slingshot & Swamp Thing 4x4 doing what we do best flying!!
11/06/2008- The Swamp Thing 4x4 team would like to thank all there fans who came to Monster Jam Cardiff to see them last weekend, what a show with 10,000 people in the pit party and 55,000+ people at the main show! We did have a small problem with the track and our tyres, we had to much grip and so every time we make a turn the truck would try and role over and we have to make a save to stop it ending up upside down. Freestyle was a lot better but hard, as most of the objects had not been hit and so were very blunt. The run was cut short when after one of the jump we bent a four link bar and then snapping the rear prop shaft and the truck was stopped by using the RII. See the clip below.
Next stop Yorkshire Trucking Spectacular hope to see you there!!!
02/06/2008- The Swamp Thing 4x4 & Slingshot monster truck hit the Kent County Showground for Truckfest South East last weekend and put on one of there high action shows for the fans to enjoy. see the video here.
