Creations of the Week

One of the keys is designing ModNation Racers: Road Trip was listening carefully to our current community’s input. They gave us their wish list and like a genie in a bottle we are ecstatic to reveal these great new additions to track your creating arsenal.

1. Multiple Themes: With the power of Vita San Diego Studio was able to give the user access to up to five times more “goodies” to create with than on PS3. In ModNation Racers: Road Trip the creator has access to over 20 different prop themes and can now mix-n-match up to fifteen of those into their track’s creation.

This means ModNation Racers: Road Trip players can now look forward to experience whole new un-seen worlds. Now THAT is cool! I can’t wait to see them!

ModNation Racers Halloween

If you find yourself anywhere near as excited for ModNation Racers: Road Trip on Vita as we are then I am very surprised any of us are getting much work done. I personally spend most of my day roaming the hallway panting heavily with my eyes bulging wide-open like a dog when rumors of the new game code gets passed around the developers offices. Yep, It’s going to be that good!

Don’t just take my word for it, take a look at these early first hand impressions from IGN and Destructiod.

Enjoy some of our favorite Halloween-y tracks. Please be advised these tracks are best played with the lights on and/or with a friend in the room. We also cannot be responsible for any “dry-cleaning” needs due to the sure fright and horror these track may induce.

Hmmmmm… it’s too early for Christmas, and still too early for “trick or treats” in your ModNation goodie bag but we’ve got too much good stuff just to keep it all to ourselves.

So… FREE DLC giveaway and Double XP! Check it out below.

Build It, Race It, Post It, Rate It
That’s a pretty daft title for an announcement of DOUBLE XP week but sometimes we just throw caution to the wind like the punks that we are. Double XP October 10th – 17th means it is “get busy” week in the ModNation. You’ll earn 100% more XP in all XP races as well as double the fun with every download of your creations. Will this be the week you reach level 30? We hope so!
