ModNation Racers For PS3

Track Creation Challenge: “Home Sweet Home”
This is going to be fun and quite possibly the best track creation challenge yet: We are pushing the ModNation track creators to design a track modeled after their hometown! The challenge will test the skills of the best track creators in the game. Relying on imagination and not a “midnight pizza-vison” to come up with amazing tracks or creations, those skills may not work here. Players will need to simulate the city where they live. Our favorite tracks will make their way into Top Tracks or Hot Lap for a week of notoriety. Sign up HERE!

Anniv. Celebration Fun Race Nights in May
Join ModNationSD for a night of fun races all throughout the month of May from 4:30 – 5:30 pm PST! If you would like to race, send a friend request to ModNationSD and I will add you for the night!

ModNation Racers Grand Prix 2012
Sign up this week for the ModNation Racers Gran Prix 2012 Racing Championship. The first set of qualifying “time trials” will be held this weekend (May 12-13). Racers will have the chance to qualify on a pre-determined United Front Games track to be hosted in Hot Lap all weekend. The top five fastest lap times (of those signed up) will automatically be entered into the finals. A remaining five spots for the finals will be decided the following week. Signup’s HERE.

Note to ModNation Racers players of both Road Trip and PS3 MNR – you may qualify for an “invitational” spot in the ModNation Racers PS3 Grand Prix Finals. The racer with the fastest time on a track tba will earn an automatic bid in the Grand Prix. Pretty cool huh? Sign up HERE and add the comment VITA GP to your name

Thanks for picking my Catfish Rally Vita for Track of the Week. I tried to create a track that would feel right at home among the career mode tracks. Happy 2nd Anniversary and Long Live ModNation!!!

    I just noticed that both of the “Track’s of the Week” have a camping theme. What’s up with that?

    Congrats! Love the track!

Is there any official word on whether or not the PS3 DLC track packs are going to go on sale some time during this Anniversary celebration?

They’ve been going to tell us ‘soon’ about a sale on the track pack DLC for several months now. Apparently they have no sense of time.

Palloza is no more a word this week than it was last week – I see you corrected yourself in the replies…or you mistakenly used the actual word…

I hope the little big planet racing game doesn’t stop modnation from getting a sequel, there’s so many things that can be added

ModNation Racers is done, they haven’t produced any new DLC for it in about a year with none on the horizon.

Good game, don’t get me wrong, but it’s obvious that they shifted gears fully into Road Trip and we’re unlikely to see them back our way again, especially considering Road Trip doesn’t support online multiplayer (lolwhat?) and its review scores suffered dramatically for such a glaring omission. I mean, I frankly just hope that UFG sticks around at all, after seeing studios like Zipper get shut down earlier in the year for similarly jumping onto their Next Big Thing while their Current Big Thing was still plenty big and worth their attention.

+ TUSTIN1 on May 7th, 2012 at 8:09 pm said:

@11 UFG doesn’t have anything to do with Road Trip and they’re not a Sony studio. They developed the first game for Sony and then the reigns were handed off to San Diego studios.

@TUSTIN1

I was yawning really hard at what you said and my eyes well up a smidge when I yawn, so I can’t seem to finish reading your post because I keep yawning around the words “Road Trip” and oop there I go again.

I may never know what you posted, but I am sure it was really interesting.

Haha! After years of dominating the podium, AUDI have now switched their attention to hotlap tracks (see Wednesday’s choice). Tell me Mark, is there no IP rule-breaking about promoting a track from someone determined to promote a certain German car manufacturer wherever they go? :D:D:D
