Hello everyone!

Ramone Russell here, Community Manager for ModNation Racers and avid kart racer.


One of my Mods I call 5-0

Everyone at United Front Games and SCEA are extremely exited to finally put the game in your hands. I’m here to give everyone a quick peek into some of the features and content available in the ModNation Racers PS3 public beta.

In short we are giving you the ability to race, share, download, remix, rate, and most importantly create. Everyone with a beta code will have our state of the art creation tools at your finger tips. We’re absolutely stoked to see the Tracks, Mods, and Karts the beta community will create.

The public beta will include three tracks from the full game Farm Frenzy, Market Run and Sandstorm. There are a couple of race options included in the beta as well. In addition to playing online with up to 12 players, you can compete for the best lap times in Time Trial.

ModNation Racers Beta -Farm Frenzy

It’s home on the firing range here on Farm Frenzy. Drift and shortcut your way through these meadows, but look out for the sheep! Especially if you dare to take the jump off the barn roof.

ModNation Racers Beta - Market Run ModNation Racers Beta - Sand Storm

The desert oasis in Market Run (left) looks calm from the outside, but the action inside is anything but. Crash through the crowded alleys to max out your weapons and pull out 720-spins on the big wall jump to build up your boost. In Sand Storm (right) Deep in the heart of the desert, this off-road race winds through rolling dunes and treacherous cliffs. Try not to break a sweat as you explore the many paths through the buried ruins.

The next area of the game included in the beta I would like to talk about is the ModSpot. What’s the ModSpot you ask? It’s the central hub area in ModNation Racers you load into once you download the beta. Everything takes place in the ModSpot. It’s where you can meet up with your friends or make some new ones. You can also view, rate, and download the top rated Mods, Karts, and Tracks as well. Lastly it’s where you launch into the Creation Station where you can create your own Mods, Karts and Tracks.

Remember, in North America the ModNation Racers Public Beta will run from today, December 18, through January 10 for everyone who was lucky enough to procure a beta voucher. If you already have a voucher (Did you pick up LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year Edition?), fire up your PS3 and redeem your code on the PlayStation Store to get in on the action. If you don’t have one, you’re in luck – the PlayStation.Blog is giving away a few hundred today! Keep your eyes peeled to the PlayStation Twitter feed and Facebook Page today for details (If you’re unlucky today, even more Beta vouchers will be given away on Monday!).


My favorite mod so far what or who will you create?

I highly doubt you’ll find a working beta code now. The open beta only runs until January 10th!

Howdy, I am not sure where to leave these comments. So here it goes. If you could give me a better link I would appreciate it.

Over all this is a fun game. I don’t like the online experience. Too many kids swearing. This is a game I will be playing offline & with the family. I am sure there is away to turn of the people from speaking but well lets say it was more annoying then Gary the announcer. We found the announcers really funny & comical.

Load time was a real pain. I look forward to split screen mode.

I really liked how you could combo weapons after getting multiple items. That tornado is really annoying. I was in first place for half a race & a tornado threw me completely off the map & I crashed thus now being in last place. I spent the rest of the race never being able to catch up even though i did not crash again.

I really liked all the alternate routes, ramps & jumps. I really liked all the tricks you could do in the air.

This game looks like a real winner. I hope you guys speed up the load time in between races. I hope there is easy access to mute all online players blue tooth. I also think the tornado teeters on being broke.

Hope to see this game for sale in stores very soon.
