ModNation Racers: PS3 Demo Hits PSN May 18th!

Chuck Lacson's Avatar + Posted by Chuck Lacson on May 14, 2010 // Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

Happy Friday! I’m happy to kick off the weekend with two bits of news from ModNation.

ONE: GET YOUR MOD ON NEXT WEEK!

I’m happy to confirm that on Tuesday, May 18th, the ModNation Racers Demo goes live and you can finally sample the over-the-top kart racing action and deep creation tools the critics have been raving about. So the question is- “What will you be able to do?

Well let me break it down-

mar26_1f march_screenshot_31A

Get your Feet Wet in Single Player – Race on one of the in-game tracks against AI in Single Player and test both your driving skills and your weapon management.

Face Off in Multiplayer! – Challenge up to 3 of your friends and race against each other in Offline Split Screen Multiplayer.

Design your Mod and Kart – Hop into the Creation Station to make your own Mod and customize your own Kart. See what you can do with just a fraction of the accessories from the full game!

Make a Full Track and Test Drive it! – Lay down some asphalt and drive your track to life! Sculpt mountains, create lakes, and place props wherever you want. Then take your Track for a spin!

Save your creations and Share them in the Full game! – Keep you creations on your hard drive and enjoy them with the full retail copy of ModNation Racers. Share your creations with friends as well!

We hope you are looking forward to your taste of our next Play, Create and Share experience.

TWO: IMPROVING LOAD TIMES

There have been concerns online about long load times in the final game and while even though UFG improved load times since the beta, they are looking into further optimizing the game via a post-launch patch!

So there you go! See for yourself next week what ModNation is all about.

Stay tuned for more fun stuff on ModNation Monday!

I’m getting a little impatient too.

I have a good amount of other things to keep me occupied (LBP, SSFIV, Wipeout HD, Valkyria Chronicles, etc.) but I’ve been looking forward to trying this game for quite some time now.

Wish they had a specific update time every week.

Hey Chuck, I just found out about the air raid dlc, I have a few questions.
Will the air code work before the game comes out?
will it be released in the play station store store later on?


236

+ Tumanator9 on May 18th, 2010 at 4:06 pm said:

my froze at 15 percent?


237

+ MARKix on May 18th, 2010 at 4:49 pm said:

I don’t think it’s released on the UK store until Thursday.

I have to say this demo has put me off from purchasing this game, it feels just like Sega All Stars Racing and your kart almost feels like it’s floating..

Disappointing!


238

+ BeckerChris on May 18th, 2010 at 6:25 pm said:

3:24 download finished^^


239

+ Hooligantuan on May 18th, 2010 at 10:49 pm said:

Hey, cool demo!

One thing – why no Mirror tool for the edit modes?

I’m having a difficult time positioning horns on my little dude’s head so that they’re symmetrical!

+ DJHEMING on May 18th, 2010 at 11:06 pm said:

242

+ DJHEMING on May 19th, 2010 at 12:52 am said:

243

+ bslehr on May 19th, 2010 at 7:04 am said:

Played for hours last night. Little disappointed that I only had one track, got old. BUT I loved track builder!! Takes me back to the fun days of Excite Bike building!!!


244

+ Neevle on May 19th, 2010 at 7:29 am said:

Hey i downloaded it this morning! Only thing is i wish that there was an option for online play cos the one track gets old. Or at least be able to race the tracks you create :)


245

+ bslehr on May 19th, 2010 at 7:50 am said:

@Neevie
You can test drive it…there are other karts on the track you can “race” but you can’t use the pods you pick up


246

+ Neevle on May 20th, 2010 at 4:18 am said:

@bslehr
I know, i meant about multiplayer. So you can race splitscreen on your tracks. It doesnt matter though- the full game comes out tomorrow here in england! :D


247

+ KineticArtist on May 20th, 2010 at 8:06 am said:

the demo sucks
make a mod cant use it in the demo
mod a kart cant use it in the demo
try to make a track and it doesnt work

totally useless demo
they lobotomized it and made it a mere shadow of the game
this shouldnt be called a demo it should be called a tease….


248

+ Tomm4118 on May 22nd, 2010 at 9:58 am said:

demo is ASOME
even with so little options availible in the demo, i was still able to make some great mods and kart…

i was amazed of what i could do w/ little track creation options as well. SUCKS THAT WE CAN’T RACE THEM THOUGH DX

cant wait to get full version XD

+ fuzzyclutter on May 22nd, 2010 at 6:17 pm said:

Been playing the demo more than all my other games ! Would like to say that i have a mod , modcart and two tracks ready to be unleashed onto the world . but im going to wait to see what goodies the full version has first . GREAT DEMO , as it converted my “wait and see what others think ” mentality , into a “GOTTA HAVE IT ! ” mentality .
