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.
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.
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?
Before I go, we want to let everyone know we need your help. To make ModNation Racers the best kart racing game possible, we want to hear from you. Things you like, things you don’t like, concerns, suggestions, bugs you find, and feedback, we want to hear it all.
See you in the ModSpot!
