ModNation Racers: It’s a DLC “Air Raid”!

Chuck Lacson's Avatar + Posted by Chuck Lacson on May 06, 2010 // Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

In anticipation for our ModNation Racers release on May 25th, and to celebrate ModNation May, we are going to drop some free ModNation DLC before we even launch the game! So what DLC are we hooking you up with?

I’d like to introduce you to Air Raid!

ModNation Racers: Air Raid DLC

ModNation Racers: Air Raid DLC (Mod)ModNation Racers: Air Raid DLC (kart)

Get an AIRMEN CAP and FLIGHT JACKET to use on any one of your Mod creations!

Air Raid is a sweet Mod that drives an even sweeter Fighter Plane Kart. If you’re lucky enough to get a voucher for this character, you don’t just get to play as Air Raid, but you can get all the accessories that come with him to create your own “Ace” driver and slick Air Fighter-styled kart.

ModNation Racers: Air Raid DLC

Pilot your Kart with a YOKE steering wheel or take aim with CROSS HAIR hood ornament.


So the big question is, “How do I get a voucher, Chuck?”

We will be giving away a bunch of voucher codes in many different ways, and we will let you know which ones right here on the PlayStation.Blog.

The first site that is hooking you up is our friends at GameSpot! They are planning on doing two code drops, with the first one being on May 10th. They have a limited quantity, so be sure to get in there before they run out.

ModNation Racers: Air Raid DLC

Expect more hints about where you’ll see Air Raid next soon, right here on the PlayStation.Blog.

its a shame that the final game code review for this game was kinda of low on eurogamer.net and other sites giving it 7 out of 10 they say that racing wise the game is to cruel to gamers plus the loading times are ridiculously long will these problems be fixed in a download patch?

+ piratedrunk on May 6th, 2010 at 7:37 pm said:

This looks like a good time but I will be waiting to purchase until I hear the load times are fixed

The load times are really not that bad when you consider everything that happens in the background….Borderlands has long loads as well sometimes..

So excited for this game! The load times are a little discouraging, but hardly get in the way of my excitement. I probably will be away from the computer when you guys give this away at Gamespot, so I’ll hope for the best on the next oppertunity. :(

All great news as always.

Chuck this is killing me honestly.

I have got to get this. Question, if I happen to be one of the unlucky ones because that’s the case, I’m not manipulating you so don’t feel bad.

Back to my question hahahaha If I get unlucky is it possible this will come out later on as DLC? I would be willing to pay for it.

WOULD Chuck hook the Bandit up with a code?..Doubtful. COULD Chuck hook the Bandit up with a code?..even less likely. WOULD he laugh at this comment?..definitely!

Now, do you see what I did there?!

*Bandit gets code for making absurd ‘Would Chuck. Could Chuck. Would’ post*

    For that I’m hooking you up with a code.

    Just go the GameSpot on May 10th and it will be there waiting for you.

I really want thus game !!!!!!!!! I got my grandpa to take me recycling this saturday and I think I figured out which game (Or games) to sell Sorry nintendo, mariokart just isn’t as fun as it used to be. I have the demo for the psp and am waiting for the ps3 demo(do u think u can tell us when that is?) and will never delete it untill I get the game. Found out how to get ratchet and clank. But I don’t want to go preorder from amazon.com. I guess I will have to settle for kratos. I’m not a fan of GOW but I could post the code on the Internet for the poor person who couldn’t preorder it. I also agree with # 37.

Not just this one tho but any CODE GIVEAWAY it says US only… it should really be North America Only because US codes work for Canadians although I’m not sure if that goes vice versa tho

I won a PixelJunk Shooter contest where I won the full game and the code was suppose to be US only so they had me make a US account, but I just put it into my Canadian account and BAM it works perfectly fine

@91 – IGN said the load times can be a bit long, but usually not to off putting. Also, said they were well worth the wait because the game is so good.

I would expect it to be with IGN. But, I guess a gaming site is just a gaming site. I hope there is more and more DLCs when the game is out. I already pre-ordered it at Gamestop to be able to play as a Kratos!!! So, I am pumped up for it. Way to go Playstation, after the smoke clears and the other two companies have exhausted all their charms; the PS3 stands tall and firm being Number 1. WAY TO GO!!!!

With all due respect for the fact I think this game looks amazing and am really looking forward to it I think this is getting a bit stupid.

Nine exclusive characters now that lots of people are gonna want but the majority wont get. The first three were fair enough at a pinch but now this is overkill if they will never be put on the PSN Store.
